Once again we are faced with the machinations of murderers who will not rest until they suck human blood. A few days after a family of 10 was gunned down in Plateau state at a funeral, Aduwan Gida in Zangon Kataf LG of Kaduna State experienced the same scenario where mourners at a funeral became the mourned. A large number of Fulani gunmen came at night at a funeral and opened fire on innocent and arm less mourners killing five adults and a 6 month old baby. The number of fatally injured persons cannot be ascertained besides the simply wounded. This kind of scenario can only be seen in movies and in the thought processes of wicked and evil men.
We condemn this dastardly act and the security agents found scattered in zone 3 of the state have once more been caught napping. We have waited on the government to protect the lives and property of innocent and law abiding citizens to no avail. Severally this maniacal massacre has repeated itself in zone 3 without any reprisals in either zone 2 or zone 1 of the state. It clearly tells a story of a grand design to annihilate a people and we hold the Kaduna State government responsible for this crime against humanity.
The press statement made by Government through Ahmed Maiyaki, DG Media and Publicity is rather unfortunate as he deliberately failed to commiserate or even address or condemn the massacre, instead Government was concerned with warning citizens not to break order. This speaks volumes and shows a tacit support by Government of this murderous act.
Finally, we would also want to make it clear that we would not fold our hands and watch while our people are being killed and our Villages destroyed all in the ploy or a calculated attempt by the Fulani to completely annihilate us ,since the Government has failed on its own part of the social contract ie protecting the life’s and property of its Citizenry .
Long Live Kaduna State
