|Killings: Don't Take Laws Into Your Hands, El-rufai Begs Fulani Community by fergie001(m): 7:07pm On Feb 16|
Kaduna State Governor, Nasiru El-Rufai, has pleaded with the Fulani community not to engage in reprisal attacks after 66 of their members were killed in Kajuru Local Government Area of the state.
The governor, who made the plea in Kajuru on Saturday during a meeting with various stakeholders, said killings have become incessant in Iri axis, including Kuturo, Unguwar Barde, Maro Gida among other areas in the Local Government Area.
“I know it’s the Fulanis that are most affected in this crisis as over a hundred people have been killed but as Muslims, we have been advised to forgive, to be patient as God avenges every evil.
“You must not take the laws into your hands by killing anybody as you are likely to harm innocent people. Allow the security operatives to do their work please”.
The governor alleged that some elders in the communities were responsible for the killings having provided weapons to the youths who carried out the attacks.
“I am always disheartened each time I visit Kajuru and sincerely am tired of this situation because the elders know those involved in the killings and have refused to fish them out.
“Maybe when government and the security agencies withdraw support from your communities, you will know our worth and do the needful.
“I have also asked the Council Chairman not to bail any leader who will be arrested in connection with the menace. Nobody is above the law, hence, culprits must be prosecuted,” El-Rufa’i stressed.
The governor called on the youths to stop the unnecessary killings in the area, warning that anyone of them caught would also face the death penalty.
El-Rufa’i said the recurring killings in the local government has stunted its growth, noting that ” no community develops without peace; all developmental projects are meant for the youths as they are beneficiaries in the long run.”
He condoled families whose relatives were killed during the attack and promised to render help to victims whose houses were burnt.
Earlier, the Council Chairman, Mr Cafra Caino said miscreants in the communities have refused to allow peace to reign, adding that all peace-loving people must work to expose the perpetrators and bring them to justice.
“We have given bikes to village heads to help us manage the security issues. We must not allow them to divide us along religious and ethnic sentiments. We, therefore, urge all leaders to pinpoint the culprits”.
Also speaking, the Chief Imam of Adara kingdom, Nuhu Sha’aban who is also a Fulani leader said the majority of those killed were women and children less than one-year-old.
“We the Fulanis have lived in this forest for over 41 years but the youths keep ambushing and killing us. Some of us were slaughtered and others burnt and thrown in ditches”, Sha’aban disclosed.
The Imam called on the Commissioner of Police to transfer most of the policemen in the area, whom he claimed were mostly indigenes of the communities who have been at their duty posts for over 10 years.
He, however, appreciated the new Divisional Police Officer recently deployed to the area and the military authorities for their efforts to ensure security in the area.
The village head of Rafin Rogo, Jonah Luka-Sarki, also reechoed the claims of the governor that the perpetrators were very well known and must be brought to justice for peace to reign in the area.
“We don’t have to disclose their names in public, but we must ensure they are arrested because they have become a nuisance to all the tribes in this LGA. We all must fear God and bring an end to this menace.
“Since the miscreants operate in the bushes using the same route, we call on the government to send soldiers to secure our forests”, Luka-Sarki pleaded.

Postponing the Election is not my problem,
My problem is who will eat the #10,000 Puff Puff and Zobo Mama Ebuka prepared to sell to the Voters?

How can INEC postpone election when sensitive materials have been sent out to the states and other substations? The APC we know is very desperate and this is Buhari's remote control. This postponment has been pre-planned as plan B by APC if the pendulum swung against them. PDP should demand for a new ballot papers with an accurate imprinted date. This is a collusion between INEC and APC, take it or leave it. INEC cannot postpone election without the knowledge of Buhari. Nigeria must stand on free and fair election. Let the votes of Nigerians count.

Hellrufai is fueling crisis in Kaduna State and karma will Bleep him up soon

Elrufai should not encourage more killings by taking sides. Where are the pictures of those killed to prove they are fulanis? How did he arrive at the conclusion that only fulanis are the victims? Elrufai must tread with care and guard his utterance to avoid inciting people.

The guy is sounding more stupid with each statement made..
You will threaten to kill people, later you will tell your fulani brothers not to kill
Who are you deceiving El rufai

Kaduna is tense. Religious and community leaders are fueling this crisis. More need to be done. How can a community warn its to vote for only a political party or suffer death or expulsion from the community.
