Barely one week after the launch of a vigilante group in Nasarawa State, operatives of the Department of State Services have arrested the President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Bello Bodejo.
In Nasarawa state.

Bodejo was arrested Tuesday at the Miyetti Allah’s Head Office, Tundun Wada Maliya Cattle Market, Karu Local Government Area of Nasarawa State along Abuja-Keffi high way

According to report obtained in Lafia this evening indicated that the DSS operatives in collaboration with some Nigerian Army, stormed the the headquarters of the Miyetti Allah’s at about 3:40 pm whisked away the National president of the Fulani Socio Cultural group after his arrest at the gate.

Sources closed to DSS revealed that Bodejo was arrested over fears that the creation of the Nomad’s Vigilante Group could cause violence across the country.

The sources said however that the arrest is not unconnected with the fact that the group is not registered with the DSS, the police, or any other security agency, hence it is not recognised by the Federal Government.

“The creation of that nomad’s vigilante group could cause violence in the country. The group was not registered with the DSS, the police, or any other security agency, and the group is not recognised by the Federal Government.”

The source said, “Our (DSS) operatives and soldiers of the Nigerian Army stormed the Miyetti Allah’s Head Office in Nasarawa this afternoon, and we’ve arrested their National President, Bello Bodejo, for creating a vigilante group that is not recognised by the government.

It would be recalled that the president of the Fulani Socio Cultural Association had said the creation of the vigilante group as a volunteer vigilante outfit would strictly adhere to the country’s existing laws during their operations.

,Bodejo had urged the volunteer vigilantes to work in collaboration with the Police, Army, and other security agencies to ensure a more comprehensive approach to security across the 13 local councils of Nasarawa.
