Gunmen have reportedly murdered the Chairman of the Cattle Breeders’ Association of Nigeria in the Lere Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

The attack which was effected in the early hours of Friday, was broken by Ibrahim Bayero Zango, MACBAN Director of Media and Publicity, Kaduna State.

There was no official statement from the state or the police as at this time.

MACBAN’S spokesman revealed how the attackers besieged the home of its Chairman, popularly identified with the nickname, Dambardi.

He lives and was attacked in the Lere Local Government Area of Kaduna around 1:00pm.


The gunmen reportedly requested not less than 20 million from the chair before they eventually whisked him away, killed him along the Saminaka-Mariri-Zango highway.

He said, “Early this morning, one of our members called to inform the leadership of the state branch of MACBAN that at about 1:00am (Friday), unknown gunmen attacked the home of the chairman of MACBAN in Lere LG and killed him.

“When they arrived the house at about 1:00am, they demanded the sum of N20m from him in order to spare his life but he told them he had no such money.

“Although he was able to raise N250,000 for the assailants, they took him to the back of the town along the Saminaka-Mariri- Zango highway where they shot him dead.”

MACBAN spokesman while condemning the murder implored the state government and the operatives of the Nigeria Police to thoroughly investigate the circumstances that led to his death while also fishing out the culprits.

“We totally condemn this heinous act and we are appealing to the state government and the Police to thoroughly investigate the attack and fish out the perpetrators of the attack.

“This is because Lere is one of the peaceful areas in the state where there has been no issue of herder-farmer crisis.

“There has been no issue of cattle rustling in the area but, surprisingly, somebody like the slain chairman of MACBAN, a strong supporter and promoter of peace in Lere, could be so brutally gunned down in that manner.

“We are sad over the incident,” he added.
