The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigerian (MACBAN) said the crisis in Southern Kaduna has nothing to do with religion.
Speaking to Daily Trust yesterday, the national secretary of MACBAN, Baba Othman Ngelzarma said the crisis is like any other between herdsmen and farmers across the country.
He said the Southern Kaduna crisis started from simple farm destruction in Godogodo which was not well managed.
He said the crisis is not different from what is happening in Zamfara State where Muslim farmers and Muslim pastoralists fight as well as Katsina State where Fulani as farmers and Fulani as pastoralists fight.
Ngelzarma said that MACBAN has commenced the process of ensuring peace through communication with other groups saying the strategy has brought peace back to Benue State.
