Blood continues to flood the streets of Kaduna/Kachia in Kujama, headquarter of Chikun Local government Area of Kaduna state for six  consecutive days following the multiple bombings of Christian places of worship on Sunday June 17, 2012 in southern Kaduna. Information available to 247ureports.com indicates that the shoot at sight order given to the men of the joint task force [JTF – operation yaki] may have resulted to shooting death of six  men of Christian origin and natives of Kujama by a Fulani military man stationed along Kaduna/Kachi road – including 12 others that sustained injuries.
The team of men from Operation Yaki had been dispatched to the vicinity of Kijama today Thursday June 21, 2012 following the bloody riot at the Kujama market place yesterday Wednesday June 20, 2012 that saw the death of estimated 10 people, both Muslims and Christians. The security forces were charged with returning peace to the community – and a ‘free-hand’ to shoot at sight.
According to community leaders and eyewitness reports, the security forces acted in a manner depicting attempts at executing judicial killings. As gathered, one of the military men suspected to be of Fulani in origin “took it upon himself” to enter into homes to fish out people at will. And those who attempted to escape during the fishing out exercise “were fired upon”. A Christian cleric who did not want his name mentioned said the Fulani soldier has been identified. He lamented that the soldier knows that the community is under curfew and the residents of the community were indoors. “But this soldier has been going to people houses, dragging them out while those who attempted to run he opened fire on them”, lamented the cleric.
The Cleric laments that if the government fails to checkmate the continued excesses of the security forces staged in Kugama that it might result to another crisis of reprisal attacks from the Christian youths. He pointed accusatory fingers at the Kaduna State police commissioner who had told the media that the fracas at Kujama community had been quelled.
The traditional rulers, on their part, are seeking for the withdrawal of the suspected military personnel from Kujama before more natives of Kujama are gun down.
