The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has urged the federal government to come out with a clear-cut compensation package for all victims of drone attacks across the country.

The National President of MACBAN, Baba Othman-Ngelzarma, made the call in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.

Othman-Ngelzarma appealed to the military to take precautions in discharging its constitutional duties of protecting and ensuring Nigeria's unity.

He asked the government to ensure that justice is done for pastoralists killed allegedly by Air Force fire in Rukubi, Doma Chiefdom, Nasarawa State, on 27 January 2023.

He said the pastoralists were killed by a drone strike as they were "offloading their livestock," which they had retrieved from the Benue Livestock Guard after paying a N29 million fine.

Othman-Ngelzarma lamented that a similar drone strike in Tudun Biri, Kaduna State, is getting all the attention from not only the federal government but also the military.
