DSS Allegedly Arrest President of Miyetti Allah for Setting Up Unrecognized Nomad Vigilante Group

DSS Arrests Miyetti Allah President

Bello Bodejo, the President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, has been allegedly apprehended by the Department of State Services (DSS) for establishing a Nomad Vigilante Group aimed to ‘assist in combating security challenges’ in Nasarawa State.

The arrest took place on Tuesday at the Miyetti Allah’s Head Office, located at Tundun Maliya Cattle Market, Kilometre 22, Abuja-Keffi Expressway, Tundun-Wada, in the Karu Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.

The DSS operatives, accompanied by Nigerian Army soldiers, reportedly conducted a raid on the Miyetti Allah Head Office near Goshen Church around 3:40 pm on Tuesday.

Following the arrest of Bodejo at the gate, a DSS source confirmed that the arrest was prompted by concerns that the establishment of the Vigilante Group might lead to widespread violence in the country.

According to the source, the group was not registered with the DSS, the police, or any other security agency, hence not recognized by the Federal Government.
