From Sabo Douglas Finestdj, Kaduna
Yesterday Saturday 26th July was a sad day the entire youths of the Southern Kaduna Patriots. A sub group of the great Kaduna Youth Forum. As we matched to Sanga Local Government with a lot of relief materials donated by the poor among us to dig into the hidden story of the southern Kaduna genocides.
One of the villages attacked is kobin village which is closer to the Nigerian police divisional headquarters than the sanga local government secretariat. In Kobin we were exposed to the victims who were overwhelmingly traumatized as a result of the attacks. We conducted interviews with the victims and the community and our discoveries are surprising.
We saw a six years old girl who suffered bullet wounds, machetes cuts but still got lucky to survive with less medical attention. Another face of miracle is a man who got shots with several bullets but yet survived with a lot of bullet wounds.
Among those killed is an Igbo man who came to Kobin, established his shop, and since then became a brother and a friend to the poor people of Kobin. The irony is, if they were told that someday somehow, he would be buried alongside 38 others in a single mass grave they would deny but today is a sad reality. On that fateful day, he was in his shop as usual doing his normal business when the gun men appeared from the bushes and shot at everything on sight including this innocent Igboman.
We also gathered numerical data and names of those accused by the victims as those who masterminded the killings. In fact we have phone numbers whom might be made available to the Ndigbo community when the time is right.
The victims also give an account of their attacked and alleged that the attackers came in full army uniforms and start shooting them indiscriminately. They also said that most of the attackers were people that were born and brought up in their farms and can clearly identity most of them because they have been living and relating peacefully with each other. Ask if there was any misunderstanding between the villagers and the alleged fulanis attackers, a reverend who lost his son and the son wife say here is no any form of misunderstanding between the dual, as they have been living in peace and harmony until they were attacks for no just cause. They say the fulanis migrated from the villagers farms a day before the attacks on the communities.
The victims called on Kaduna state government and the federal government to please send in security personnel to safe guard their community because most of their people are running away because of lack of security in the communities and when being asked if efforts to there were security posted there in time past, they said for the first time some of them saw real soldiers was when the soldier men escorted a politician to see the mass graves and since after the politician left, that was the last time they saw a man in uniform.
Wow!!! What a sad story and pity for the igboman, I pray that GOD will grant him internal rest…..AMEN
good work. but be mindful of ur communication arts. cos we sounded biased. as humanitarian, be in d middle. build and do not instigate.
My condolences. However l do not have pity for any lgbo man killed in the north this time. The lgbo people should go down south and conduct their businesses. First fool no bi fool,second fool na fool and third fool na foolish
Do minimise your emphasis on igboman being kill it could be incitive. We sympathise with victims irrespective of their tribes and comment your humanitarian gestures. God bless
Bravo…. on the above info but please when you are posting such type of info use your discretion. Their are some issues that are not supposed to be publicies,please take note Bro.
I was among the relief yesterday too. The people are in need of building materials to rebuild their burnt houses. Please assist.
God arise and save our land. Please mindful of some secrete you don’t who n who is reading.
TRUTH HAS NO PHOTOCOPY… IT IS ONE AND SHALL REMAIN ONE… IS THERE ANY PART OF THE WRITING THAT IS NOT TRUE? WAS THE IGBOMAN NOT AMONG THE 45 KILLED? WAS HE NOT BURRIED IN THE SAME GRAVE WITH 38 MORE OTHERS? IN THAT ATTACK, HUNDREDS WERE KILLED… WHY THEN SHOULD WE BE PLAYING HIDE AND SEEK WITH THE ISSUE?
You people are trouble makers as you emphasised igbo man while many casualities were involve among which might be fulani’s fired by you and inflict several injuries in then . you must be just in everything you are saying or else ALLAH WILL PUNISH , DESTROY AND PUT YOU INTO THE HELL FIRE
PLEASE SHOW THE FULANI VICTIMS SO THAT WE CAN ALSO STRETCH A HELPING HAND TO THEM
You 247ureporter you a so stupid, you are always very biased in your coment when it comes to Northen Nigeria. You mean the Ibo man is the only human created by God or what? If you are Southern Nigeria reports only fine, dont ever place any report from the North again.
Dont try and bring composing among our peace loving Nigerian, yoy now want the Ibo to start thinking of taking revenge so as for you to get your Vendow commission, when onother crises start. Ok you will not see by God grace. All Nigerian life are the same . Bye.
Stupid story, Ibo, Ibo, so what? Are Fulani people not Nigerians, how many Nigerians are killed every day you only speak of Ibo Man. Shout up and close you Company if you don’t have anything to say.
