Chairman of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) in Kogi State, Wakili Damina, has been abducted.
The state secretary of MACBAN, Adamu Abubakar, confirmed that Damina was abducted last Friday by some armed men dressed in army camouflage.
Quoting eyewitnesses, he said the abductors, numbering about eight, came in a white bus at about 12 noon to “forcefully” take away the Chairman from his house at Chikara village.
Abubakar said a search party raised by MACBAN had visited other places, including abattoirs in and around Abuja to no avail.
The police also confirmed that the whereabouts of the Miyetti Allah chairman is still unknown.
