Southern Kaduna massacre: Protests in Kaduna, Lagos, Abuja over 184 killed by bandits

Protesters took to the streets of Kaduna, Lagos and Abuja on Saturday morning to protest over what they described as “genocide” taking place in the southern part of Kaduna State and the government’s inability to stop the killings.

The protest took place about 48 hours after suspected Fulani militiamen unleashed fresh attacks on Apiashyim, Kibori, Atakmawei, Apyiako, and Magamiya villages in Southern Kaduna.

In the wake of the attacks, the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union said 33 people were killed. But the police gave the casualty figure as 21.

The National Youth Leader of SOKAPU, John Isaac, said in Kaduna, the protesters stormed the streets of Samaru-Kataf, Zonkwa and Mabushi areas in the Zangon Kataf Local Government Area.

Isaac said solidarity protests were also held in the Maryland, Ikeja area of Lagos, while in Abuja, the protesters convened at the Unity Fountain to demand an end to the incessant killings.

Amid the continuous killing and kidnapping of Southern Kaduna natives, SOKAPU stated that between January 1 and August 5, over 184 persons were killed by militant herdsmen.

Over the same period, the union said over 76 persons were kidnapped even as the whereabouts of some of the victims remained unknown till today. More than 9,000 had also reportedly been displaced by the marauding militiamen.

Angered by the killing spree in their communities, Southern Kaduna people on Saturday marched in different parts of the state, demanding an immediate end to the massacre.

The protesters were joined by leaders of some sociopolitical groups in the country, including Afenifere, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Pan Niger Delta Forum, and the Middle Belt Forum.

The groups’ leaders, who paid a solidarity visit to the region, sympathised with the natives in their trying times. They also visited some internally displaced persons and sought the quick intervention of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), in ending the crisis.

Clad in dark attire, the protesters, in their hundreds, carried placards with inscriptions reading: “Enough is enough,” “We cannot continue like this,” “Southern Kaduna lives matter,” “Government has failed us,” “Allow us to defend ourselves if you can’t,” and “End killings in Southern Kaduna,” among others.

Some of the protesters stormed the streets of Samaru-Kataf, Zonkwa and Mabushi areas in the Zangon Kataf LGA despite a 24-hour curfew imposed by the state Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai.

The Zangon Kataf branch chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev Isaac Makama, said the protest was a demonstration of the natives’ displeasure with the government’s handling of the insecurity situation.

“Let government rise up and protect the people because it is sad to see that people will just sit in their homes and get killed for no just cause, and these killers were never arrested even with the huge security around,” he said.

The protesters also marched to the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation junction in Chikun Local Government Area of the state.

However, anti-riot policemen stormed the venue of the protest and arrested the protest leaders and some other demonstrators.

Confirming the arrest, the state police command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, said it was because the protesters did not inform the police before embarking on the protest.

“Some of them were arrested because they did not inform us of the procession,” Jalige told one of our correspondents, adding that he could not give the number of those arrested.

“I cannot tell you how many of them were picked up now but I will get back to you later,” he said. However, he did not do so as of press time.

Meanwhile, leaders of the various sociopolitical groups berated the government for not ending the Southern Kaduna crisis.

The groups also announced a collective donation of N2m aid to the IDPs at the Goni-Gora IDPs’ camp.

The National Chairman of PANDEF, Air Commodore Idongesit Nkanga (retd.), who condoled with the IDPs, said the forum was instructed to pay the solidarity visit by its national leader, Chief Edwin Clark.

Also at the IDPs’ camp, the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief John Nwodo, told the President, to save the country from an imminent collapse following the spate of insecurity in the country.

Nwodo, who was represented by the President of the Ohanaeze group in Kaduna State, Chief Ben Churchill-Aniekwena, said what was happening in Southern Kaduna was pathetic.

“At this stage, may I draw the attention of all the state apparatuses – I mean the police and other security forces; the judiciary, and the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, President Muhammadu Buhari, to do the needful to save this country from a total and imminent collapse. Enough is enough!” he said.

On his part, Afenifere spokesperson, Mr Yinka Odumakin, tackled the Presidency for being the “mouthpiece of the attackers,” adding that it was shameful that security forces were looking the other way while genocide was happening in Southern Kaduna.

“Our position is that for the South-South, South-West, South-East, and the Middle Belt, whoever attacks one attacks all. So, the attacks on Southern Kaduna are attacks on all of us,” he said.

Also speaking, the President of the Middle Belt Forum, Dr Bitrus Pogu, renewed the call for the restructuring of the country, saying if the Southern Kaduna people had their own police, they wouldn’t suffer the persistent attacks by suspected Fulani militia.

The National President of SOKAPU, Mr Jonathan Asake, appreciated the sociopolitical groups’ leaders for the solidarity visit; he said it was a mark of a genuine concern for humanity.

The Coordinator of the Mercy IDPs’ camp, Rev Gambo Waziri, decried that the state government had not shown any care to the IDPs.

He said with the latest attacks on Thursday, the camp’s population had surged to over 3,000 displaced persons.

Amnesty Int’l condemns police clampdown, demands protesters’ release

A global human rights organisation, Amnesty International, on Saturday knocked the police in Kaduna State for clamping down on residents protesting the continuous Southern Kaduna killings, saying those arrested “must be released immediately.”

Amnesty International, in a series of tweets, also demanded that the federal and state governments end the killings in the region.

The AI said it could confirm that three protesters were picked up on Saturday in the state, stressing that protest was a human right.

AI said, “Amnesty International condemns the crackdown on protests and the arrest of three protesters today in Kaduna by security forces. We call on authorities to respect and protect the right to freedom of assembly. Those arrested must be released immediately in Southern Kaduna.

“The Nigerian authorities must do more to end the incessant killings in Southern Kaduna and investigate all previous violence in the area. Perpetrators must be brought to justice and lives must be protected in Southern Kaduna and other parts of Nigeria facing frequent violence.”

184 killed, 76 kidnapped in seven months –SOKAPU

Meanwhile, SOKAPU has said between January 1 and August 5, over 184 persons were killed in attacks unleashed on communities by suspected Fulani militiamen.

In a document titled, ‘Fulani militia atrocities in Southern Kaduna from January 1 to August 5,’ and signed by the national spokesperson for SOKAPU, Mr Luka Binniyat, the union detailed the number of casualties recorded as a result of attacks by suspected Fulani militiamen within the past seven months.

For example, in January, the union recorded at least 42 deaths and over 50 kidnap cases in communities in Southern Kaduna.

Also, on February 13, militiamen reportedly invaded an open market In Maro village in Kajuru Local Government Area, killed eight people and caused severe injuries on many others.

On March 1, the bandits also attacked Matsirga village in the Zangon Kataf LGA, where they killed two persons and wounded five others.

In April, SOKAPU said it documented 44 deaths and 12 kidnap cases in several communities.

Also, according to the union, 30 natives were killed between May 18 and 24 in villages such as Magunguna, Idazo, Unguwan Galadima, Unguwan Guza, and Etissi in the Idon Ward of Kajuru Local Government Area.

In June, the union said villages such as Agwalla Magayaki and Tudun Agwalla in the Kajuru Local Government Area were attacked, resulting in the murder of nine persons, including five children.

In July, 21 deaths were recorded in some communities in Southern Kaduna.

In August, the latest attacks reportedly took place from Wednesday to Thursday in Apiashyim, Kibori, Atakmawei, Apyiako, and Magamiya villages. In the wake of the attacks, SOKAPU said 33 people were killed, although the police gave the casualty figure as 21.

SOKAPU’s spokesperson, Binniyat, further said more people were being kidnapped and killed on a daily basis, adding that some of the killings were undocumented because they were not reported.

The union bemoaned the after-effects of the worsening insecurity. For instance, the union said in the eastern part of Chikun Local Government Area, 27 schools and over 65 churches had been shut before the COVID-19 pandemic started.

SOKAPU also quoted the Christian Association of Nigeria as stating that in the past one year, a ransom of over N400m had been paid to kidnappers “by these impoverished societies.”

The union said as of today, villagers numbering over 9,000 had been displaced by the marauding militiamen.

“The displaced are now taking refuge in nearby towns under tough conditions in this grim period of coronavirus pandemic,” Binniyat said.

I think this should be a nation-wide protest. Innocent people getting displaced of their ancestral lands and paying with their lives for nothing. Such a humanitarian disaster.

There should be a nation-wide protest. If we allow this to go unabated, the perpetrators may have the nerve to proceed further south.

The plan was solidified when Elrufai went against the age old Christian/Muslim ticket by taking a fellow Muslim as deputy knowing that he has federal might to rig and win the election, now security meetings are held without a Christian native, he publicly stated how he traveled to Niger Republic to pay compensation to the Fulani militia killing people in Southern Kaduna and middle belt.

Elrufai knows when and how to call his ethnic Fulani militia to other but not until when they have fully displaced the original inhabitants to be replaced by foreign Fulanis for whom Buhari declared free visa for all Africans coming to Nigeria.
Some key politicians in the SW facilitated this murderous regime by repackaging a dictator called Buhari into a fake Democrat in 2015 against the advice of Yoruba elders forum. Today we wake up to bad news everyday.

This is why Tinubu will rather call for the impeachment of Obaseki while campaigning with the killer Elrufai in Edo state.
The Media in the SW which used to be the mouthpiece of the common man has become so afraid to speak out and has been effectively silenced. They are waiting for a black man to be killed by a white officer in America so that they can scream racism embarassed

good, would surely join the protest if i hear about any around my location because its a good way going forward..
all those our celebrities and politicians that are busy posting #pray for paris, #justiceforfloyd, #blacklivesmatters would all ignore this in house protest maybe because those in norths dont need prayers or they don't deserve justice or the black lives in kaduna don't matter..
my dad do say "if a man chooses to folds his hands and watch when his neighbor house is in fire, he should make sure to save alot of water and be ready to quench the fire himself when it gets to his turn because his neighbors would be watching too"...

I am of the opinion that it is a basic human right for people to be allowed access to guns to defend themselves. The rich in the society should come together, procure arms for their people and arm a small army to defend their turf. Nobody has the monopoly of violence. God bless America!

“Let me also re-echo my previous position with respect to the insurgency in Borno State. I have said several times (that) there is no doubt, the gravity of the insurgency cannot be compared with what has happened between 2011 – 2015 and from 2015 till date. The President has done well, but the most important thing is, it’s good also to say the right thing. There is sabotage in the system that will not allow the insurgency to end. The President has to know this important point.

“There is one very important portion that we need to address, why is the insurgency not ending? I repeat, there is sabotage in the system, therefore, the President needs to examine the current security situation in the region with a view to resolving it in a sustainable manner.”
These are great and honest words coming from a honest and good man.
This is a good man and not a mere or your average politicians our country have been cursed with.

To all those that brought upon this evil boko haram into our nation.
To all their sponsors, no matter the party they may be.
To all those who never want peace to reign in Borno state and our darling country as a whole,
Evil and painful ends await them all.
They can and will never escape destruction soon.
If you are here supporting those criminals and evil-minded people.
What will befall them will never be far from your doorsteps also.
Watch it!

The President must come with brutal force to bring to book the evil perpetrators and sponsors of this evil boko boys, this evil that has been affecting our nation since almost 2 decades must STOP.

AGAIN,
May it never be well with all Boko haram sponsors in our darling nation and may all those who support their sponsors all end up miserably in life.
May bitterness and pains never leave their doorsteps.
So shall it be.

Sane Nigerians,
watch out how hypocrites, swines, enemies of Nigeria and bastards will avoid saying Amen to this innocent prayer.
While, honest, good and hardworking Nigerians shout a very BIG AMEN.
Just watch it!
Watch them come up with stories to back up their foolishness and bitterness.
WATCH them quote this post and say all manner of jargon without saying Amen that will kill the evil Boko Haram sponsors.
All of una causing pains in dis country no go ever die better.

No be curse,
Na FACT!!



clarocuzioo:

I say a loud AMEN to your prayers, and I also add

May all the useless ediot especially the online urchins who tend to paint black white because of stipends they get from eveil people, may sword never depart from their house hold.

May day be cursed by the night and the morning.
May the.rains bring nothing but tears to them.
May they remain a curse to their generation.
So shall it be in Jesus name, Amen.

Please kindly say a big Amen to this prayer.
Amen,
Amen,
and Amen to this very important prayer.
So shall it be for all those urchins collecting any form of stipends to support the evil people that are bent on putting our darling nation in chaos and bloodshed.
They will all end up miserably in life.
They can never escape it.
Thanks for the prayers.
So shall it be in Jesus name.
Insha Allah also!
Iseeeeeee........

Y'all can save this picture 'Yours Truly' just compiled together after editing...... for posterity sake.
Posterity will judge us all in this nation.
If you support good and honest people,
Keep up with it.
If you support criminals and evil people, also keep up with it.
Your end will justify it all.

Please let them stop calling Buhari or El- rufai on this because they are apparently not intrested in the matter.

They should make videos to the United Nations etc to come and help. Nigerian youths should flood twitter and facebook groups of the world leaders with appeals.
