The Chairman of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) of Gwagwalada Area Council in Abuja, Adamu Aliyu, was shot dead at the weekend by bandits who attacked him on his way after conducting a business transaction.
A report monitored via First News claimed that three of his members were also killed.
Sources said Aliyu, had travelled to Niger State with his members to sell some cows and that the amount made from the sales ran into millions of naira.
While returning from the business trip, the MACBAN Chairman chose to return in the night rather than wait till the next morning.
He was even said to have followed a bush path with his members in the night while returning, with a source saying: “That is how the Fulani move.”
On getting to Daku village in Dobi ward, which is a border village between FCT and Niger State, the Chairman and his members were attacked by the bandits, who shot him and the three others.
FCT Police Commissioner confirmed the attack and death of the MACBAN Chairman, saying that investigations had commenced into the incident.
