Insecurity: Miyetti Allah Unveils Vigilante Outfit in Nasarawa

In response to the rising security challenges in Nasarawa State, the Fulani socio-cultural association, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, has introduced a proactive measure to combat banditry, kidnapping, and cattle rustling. The association’s president, Abdullahi Bello Bodejo, officially launched a 1,144-man Nomad Vigilante Group in Lafia, the state capital.

The initiative, unveiled in collaboration with the state’s security agencies, aims to address the increasing incidents of crime and provide support in identifying criminal elements among cattle herders. Bodejo emphasized that the group’s formation is not only an initiative but a shared commitment to economic development, job creation, and inclusivity, while simultaneously combating insecurity challenges.

“The nomad vigilante group is a manifestation of our shared commitment to economic, job creation, inclusivity, and the relentless fight against banditry, cattle rustling, hunger, and poverty,” explained Bodejo during the unveiling.

The selection process for the vigilante group involved careful screening and profiling of members to ensure their reliability and commitment to the cause. Bodejo urged the newly formed security team to work in unity with relevant security agencies and avoid actions that could tarnish the image of the association and the Fulani community.

Governor Abdullahi Sule had previously sought the assistance of Miyetti Allah in November 2023 to tackle crimes and criminalities in the state. The association’s response comes as a manifestation of their commitment to contribute to a safer environment for residents.

Commending Governor Sule’s efforts in ensuring the safety of all residents, Bodejo expressed optimism that the Nomad Vigilante Group would play a significant role in enhancing security in Nasarawa State.

The commandant of the 177 Guard Battalion, Keffi, Lt. Col. Inuwa Bala, emphasized the importance of the new outfit adhering to the rules of engagement, stressing discipline as a key factor in their operations. The state commissioner of police, Umar Shehu Nadada, represented by the assistant commissioner of police (Operations), Abdulaziz Aliyu, urged the vigilante group to work in synergy with existing security agencies to effectively rid the state of criminals.

As Nasarawa State pioneers this innovative approach to address security concerns, the collaboration between Miyetti Allah’s Nomad Vigilante Group and government security agencies holds the promise of yielding positive results in creating a safer environment for residents.
