At least 15 persons were killed and over 20 are still missing following yesterday’s violence in Zangan, Kaura Local Government Area of troubled southern Kaduna State.  The story of the new attack by Fulani herdsmen was first carried by SaharaReporters last night.

Habila Kumai, who is currently in the area and among those picking up the dead, told SaharaReporters today that the corpses are mainly of children, women and men, and that they died from bullet wounds and deep knives cuts.

He said houses were burnt down in dozens and hundreds of villagers have deserted the village. Kumai also noted that the soldiers recovered bullets and other evidence of the weapons the unknown gunmen used in the attacks.

The source blamed the problem in Southern Kaduna area on the area’s weak representation in both the National and Kaduna State Assemblies, regretting that the legislators have been unable to bring to the front burner the killing spree being perpetrated in the area by Fulani headsmen.

“What do you expect from people who knew nothing more than just grabbing power, and just money?” he asked.  “What do you expect from insensitive lawmakers, more so, a serving Senator whose husband is a Fulani feudal in Southern Kaduna? She bought the seat and what do you expect? Nothing, they must wake up, government must wake up and all leaders too, because this thing is getting out of hand.”

Killings. Southern Kaduna, Benue and pleateau

For the fact that I strongly believe in the unity of this great country, Nigeria, I do not also believe that one ethnic group should hold the remaining ethnic groups in the north to ransom through systematic genocide. 45 people people killed in Benue and now 15 in Southern Kaduna not to mention the daily carnage in Pleateau. I wonder what people Like TY Danjuma, Domkat Bali, Joshua Dogonyaro, Lawrence Onoja, Zamani Lekwot, Yohanna Madaki, Marthin luther Agwai and the host of northern minority leaders are doing to protect their people. Where are the Fulanis getting their own weapons? do they enjoy absolute monopoly to kill others?. I think I need answers to these questions from leaders I have just mentioned. We are seriously running out of patience.

THE CATTLE REARERS

During the first republic the government created game reserve called burtali from Borno to Oturkpo in Benue State and from Sokota to Bode Saadu in kwara state and other areas. This reserves were systematically converted to personal use by local chiefs rendering it impossibleKY2d7 for a fulani man to rear his cattle without overstepping his bounds.

Allah Wubade. May Allah send

Allah Wubade. May Allah send Imam ibn Shekau more brave youths to carry on the struggle. All say amen.

Disarm

When did nomads start carrying AK47? Since these NOMADS have gone MAD all over the country a law should be passed to disarm them. It has become routine now for these people to kill from the North all the way to the South. Something has to be done and done quickly.

KADUNA SHOULD NOT BE EXEMPTED FROM STATE OF EMERGENCY

in the light of recent tragic happenings in the peace loving region of southern kaduna, the federal government should not hesitate to declare a state of emergency in kaduna state. i strongly voice this opinion in a bid to protect precious lives and property. this opinion must be implemented forthwith,and should not be a subject of politics.

Southern Kaduna reaping

In 2011, many fulani were killed in S/kaduna and others terrorized.A committee of inquiry was set up but nothing has been done.Unjust leadership is what is pulling Nigeria apart.

It has been happening for a long time without nothing done

Hausa/Fulani/Kanuri killing have been going on for a long time, the only reason we now take more note if it is because if their final plan of introducing terror to the whole north because Christianity is eating deep in the the region that use to be all muslims.

We know why the sponsored killing and we know are to end it soon.

God will not come down and

God will not come down and help nobody......... we must help ourselves if not...... it'll only get worse..

GUNS IN THE HANDS OF EVERY MAN WOMAN AND CHILD

It is clear once again that the Government has failed the people of Southern Kaduna against these cowardly brutal, mindless and cowardly attacks.
I implore the leaders in Southern Kaduna to take extreme measures to protect their own people. They should procure weapons for the legitimate and lawful defence of their own people since the impotent Federal Government of Nigeria can no longer proffer a solution to their plight.
Organize militia from village to towns let everybody carry a gun to defend themselves and their abodes. If it is legal for Fulani herdsmen to carry a gun it is legal for the people of Southern Kaduna to do the same.
This impotent, ineffective, corrupt, inept Government of Jonathan will do nothing until no one is left in that region. only GOD will help people that help themselves.

Give the fulani cattle men

Give the fulani cattle men allotment of lands, and make laws that will govern their activities and movements, and which will also stipulate penalties for infraction. Else visit other countries and learn from them, after all Nigeria is not the only country with cattle farmers.

FULANI HERDSMEN

the solution lie in governments hand because its a matter of making a law guarding cattle rearing, since cattle rearers cannot control their cattles, human lives has no value in Nigeria, children, women are killed just because of uncontrollable cow rearers. as long as anybody encraoches another persons land he must be blamed for whatever. its unforntunate that our top governments are the owners of these cattle so they turn deaf ears to what they hear and are not interested in whats happening but i assure them judgement day is coming. cattle rearers should stay in the north provide and produce cow feeds for them or better still buy them, individuals can provide cow feeds for them while they buy them without necesaaily migrating to other states in the name of cattle reasing to destrroy crops and human lives.

.when will these useless killings stop ...

.. not again , when will all these useless killings stop....God please send you agents from heaven to Nigeria
