Danjuma faults El Rufai’s Claim, Says Fulani Herdsmen Still killing in Kaduna South


The Senator representing Southern Kaduna in the National Assembly, Senator Danjuma Tella Laah has faulted the claim by Governor El-Rufai that the state is now well secured.

The senator was reacting to El-Rufai’s opening speech on a Live TV at the on-going Kaduna Economic Submit and Investment.

In a statement personally signed by Senator Danjuma Laah, he said ‘’ The truth is that there is a steady and unrelenting onslaught on isolated communities in Southern Kaduna and environs, which has not been reported by the Press since last year.

 “The murders, kidnappings, rapes and provocative destruction of crops, all by persons that the victims believe are Fulani, are just too numerous to be captured in just a press statement, since June 2015, till date’’

‘’I had even called the attention of the state government to this evil, as recent as this January at Barnawa Prison Staff College, Kaduna at the Bajju Annual Festival. Where I made it abundantly clear, that the killings in Southern Kaduna and related feeling of insecurity still persisted’’ he added.

‘’Just last Thursday (31st March, 2016) in Zamandabo, Zamandabo District in Zangon Kataf, the village was invaded by unspecified number of gunmen. One Danladi Makajim, 57, was killed and four escaped with gun wounds in an apparent robbery of shops in the village.

‘’I have been informed that two of the culprits have been arrested, after they launched an attack on Zangon Kataf town in Atyap Chiefdom; not less than four persons have been killed by rampaging Fulani men (as the villagers insist) this year alone.

 Again, on the 30th March, a number of gunmen lay ambush to four youngsters in Kiring village, Damakasuwa District, in Kauru LGA caught one Sarengi Barnaba, a primary School pupil. He was not only killed, his eyes were gouged out, his tongue severed and his heart removed. The tendons on his legs were also pulled out. The boy was buried last Friday in the village in the presence of Police.

‘’The situation is worse in Sanga LGA, where the violent armed brigandage robberies on the highways are too common. A day after Governor Nasir El Rufai made some communities to sign a curious “peace” agreement between some 29 native communities in 5 LGAs of Southern Kaduna, with most of them from Sanga, one Daniel Yakubu, fron Antor village, Aboro District, in Numana Chiefdom in Sanga LGA, was killed allegedly by the same Fulani that were supposed to have signed the peace deal with our communities. This, I believe is in contempt of the peace agreement”, he lamented.
