The Department of State Services (DSS) has debunked claims stipulating that the president of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Bello Bodejo, is in its custody.
The clarification was made known by DSS Spokesman, Peter Afunanya, in an interview with TheCable on Tuesday, January 23.
Afunanya said, “He’s not with the DSS”.
Earlier on Tuesday, reports went rife that DSS operatives alongside some soldiers of the Nigerian Army, were said to have stormed the Miyetti Allah’s Head Office close to Goshen Church, Karu LGA of Nasarawa state, at about 3:40 pm on Tuesday, on account of the unveiling of a vigilante group.
The Fulani socio-cultural organisation had last week unveiled a vigilante group in Nasarawa.
He said the vigilante group is made up of 1,144 Fulani youths selected from various communities in the 13 LGAs of the state.
Speaking, Bodejo had said the “Nomad vigilante group” would assist security agencies in combatting criminal activities in the north-central state.
