Below are some reactions from Nigerians
Whatever the case, equating Miyetti Allah to other ethno organisations do not justify the attempts by the FG to give them Nigeria’s money No ethnic group or business community have gotten such largesse from FG. Doing so now would not just be stupid, it would be unconstitutional

That is the contradiction of Buhari’s presidency. Miyetti Allah despite being responsible for the Benue Farmer-Herder crisis should have been declared a terrorist group instead they’re being pacified with millions of naira. Garba Shehu likened the group to Afenifere & Ohaneze
