The Department of State Security (DSS), has arrested the President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Mr Bello Bodejo.

Bodejo according to PUNCH was taken into custody on Tuesday at the Miyetti Allah’s Head Office, Tundun Maliya Cattle Market, Kilometre 22, Abuja-Keffi Expressway, Tundun-Wada, Karu local government area of Nasarawa State.

The DSS operatives alongside some soldiers of the Nigerian Army, were said to have invaded the Miyetti Allah’s Head Office close to Goshen Church, at about 3:40 pm on Tuesday, as they drove off after arresting Bodejo at the gate.

A DSS source who confirmed the arrest said that Bodejo was arrested over fears that the creation of the Nomad’s Vigilante Group could cause chaos across the country.

He added that the group was not registered with the DSS, the police, or any other security agency, hence it is not recognised by the Federal Government.

The source said, “Our (DSS) operatives and soldiers of the Nigerian Army stormed the Miyetti Allah’s Head Office in Nasarawa this afternoon, and we’ve arrested their National President, Bello Bodejo, for creating a vigilante group that is not recognised by the government.

“The creation of that nomad’s vigilante group could cause violence in the country. The group was not registered with the DSS, the police, or any other security agency, and the group is not recognised by the Federal Government.”

Meanwhile, DSS is yet to issue a statement in respect to the development.
