The MACBAN spokesman, while condemning the attack, called on the state government and security agency to investigate the attack so as to uncover the perpetrators of the heinous act.

“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.
