The Federal Government says it did not give Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association money during its recent meeting with the group in Kebbi State.
The Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau said this while speaking to newsmen in Anka, Zamfara state.
He described the information that government gave the group money as the fabrication of mischief makers.
The minister had earlier told the Emir of Anka, Attahiru Ahmad that he was in the state at the instance of President Muhammadu Buhari to address insecurity in the state.
He assured farmers that the government would provide adequate security for them to farm without hindrance during the farming season.
On his part, the Emir of Anka who is also the Chairman of the Council of Emirs in the state, urged the government to do more in order to resolve the crisis.
