National leadership of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) has said that they did not negotiate the release of students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State.
The Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Bello Masari, had earlier claimed that the body was part of those who negotiated for the release of the 343 students.
In an interview with Sun, National Secretary of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, Baba Othman Ngelzarma it was not like that.
He said, “unless the governor was discussing with the Katsina State branch of the association, but definitely not with the national leadership.”
The National President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Bello Abduallahi Bodejo, also said that the national body was not contacted on the matter.
Bodejosaid: “We don’t know the bandits and we don’t want to know them and we don’t have anything to do with them. No member of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore even at local levels knows the bandits.”
