Danladi Ciroma, chairman of north central zone of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), has denied linking the killings in Plateau state to reprisal attacks.
Mr Ciroma said the reporter he spoke with on the issue misquoted him, denying issuing a statement.
According to a report on Leadership Newspapers, Ciroma said:-
“I did not issue a statement. No, we talked on phone. Sincerely speaking, what that boy wrote was not what I told him. We did not speak on reprisal attacks,”
