The vigilante group formed by Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, a Fulani Socio-Cultural Association has been disowned.
 
Commissioner of Police, CP, in Nasarawa State, Umar Nadada, said the vigilante group is not recognized by the police.
 
Nadada said this when members of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, visited him on Tuesday in Lafia.
 
Recall that the Fulani socio-cultural group unveiled the vigilante group on January 18, in Lafia, Nasarawa State.
 
The CP said that no formal letter was written to inform the police of the group’s intention to register any Nomad Vigilante Group.
 
“We must attend any gathering to provide security and ensure that hoodlums did not hijack the event or the organizers themselves will not do anything illegal.

“Even when they came to our headquarters, I addressed them outside the headquarters of the command because there was no formal notification” he added.
 
Nadada noted that the police command had been working with vigilante groups that were recognized, and would not work with any group not recognized by the state government.
 
Speaking on synergy with NUJ, Nadada said the police command is ready to work with the media for proper policing in the state.
