Southern Kaduna Killings: Governor Yero Shuns Victims’ Families, Dashes Off To Abuja

Victims of Zango Kataf attack
By SaharaReporters, New York

Governor Mukhtar Ramalan Yero of Kaduna last night ignored families of those who died in yesterday’s killings in Zangon Kataf local government area. SaharaReporters reported that Fulani herdsmen killed at least five members of the community in another episode of communal violence.

Our correspondent learnt that the bereaved families waited in vain for hours to see the governor, but he never turned up to personally assess their condition or to offer his condolences. Instead, Mr. Yero took off to Abuja, the country’s capital.

Several of the bereaved told a correspondent of SaharaReporters that neither the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) nor the Kaduna State Emergency Management Agency had provided them with a single relief material.

A security source said the governor’s trip to Abuja was “for an emergency state function,” but failed to disclose the specific nature of the emergency. Other sources in Kaduna disclosed that Mr. Yero was advised on security grounds to stay away from the besieged community considering the heightened tension. One of those sources said the governor could visit the area on Monday or as soon as the security situation improves.

But numerous people in the community said they were dissatisfied with the governor’s absence, accusing him of betraying the duty of a leader. In a telephone interview, one of the critics, Bege Chechet, told SaharaReporters that the governor’s decision not to pay a reassuring visit to the area was an act of insensitivity and showed the usual “lack of pity in the hearts of leaders.” He added: “I came in from Jos this morning, and we were told that the governor would come; he never showed up. It was the police commissioner who came as well as other people.” He lamented that there had been “no emergency relief materials for our people. Just nothing.”

Mr. Chechet remarked that if Mr. Yero “values us as his people and citizenry, he would have been here and not to find cover and leave for Abuja, as we were told.” He added: “Even if [the governor] comes here tomorrow, there is no sense. When [a similar thing] happened in Birnin Gwari, he was there immediately. So, this is discrimination.”

Re: Roasted Bastard From Hell....

@Roasted From Hell. First and foremost, ka ci ubanka
Question: Who triggered the post-election crisis in Kaduna?
Answer: Your moronic, q'uaranic memorizing bastards who thought election must be won at all cost. Shegu.
Question: Who initiated the attack on the people of Kafanchan and Zonkwa?
Answer: The Hausas. The irresponsible, reckless fools who abuse the hospitality they enjoy. Were it not so, how come the Hausas and foolanis in Kachia and Sanga not assaulted? Because they respected the indigenes. Or are you saying Kachia and Sanga are no longer part of Southern Kaduna? Idiot.
Question: Did both sides recorded casualties?
Answer: Yes, both sides did. The only difference was that while the hardworking people of Southern Kaduna picked up their lives and moved on, those lazy morons relocated to hajj camp and are expecting gov't to feed them despite monetary compensation from our commonwealth... Idiots.
Advise: Just don't call on gov't when the chips are down... Moron

Re: Killings

You are stupid! Kai mai sayar da kanwa? We will deal with them,
We will exterminate any thing Islam in Southern Kaduna, ko kaki ko kaso!

Just watch it! We are intellegent and brave!

@ ibtilus, thanks for a

@ ibtilus, thanks for a fact-based post. It's soooo refreshing! I only wish that more Nigerians could discern the difference.

Drunks? You Must be on Crack Cocaine....

There is nothing like "Southern Zaria".... It is called "Southern Kaduna".... Clearly, your ignorance has shown.... And let me educate your retarded mind.... It'll take much more than an imbecile to tag an extremely brilliant and hardworking people "lazy".... You will have to mention one foolani who made it without riding on the back of an extremely corrupt and blood-sucking emirates.... Any wonder you can't compete..... Shege!

The lower part of Kaduna.

Well, don't worry; that big fool will come asking you to vote for him! That will be time you people should go to Abuja for your official engage
ment!

Amanda Ngozi, you don't

Amanda Ngozi, you don't understand. You don't understand that Alhaji Yero is doing the best he can for this people. Alhaji cannot change Karma or Divine Vengeance. He did not ask any mallam to commit atrocities for him in Igboland. When they are suffering the consequences of their actions even unto the 4th generation, don't call him. He owes them nothing.

Ibtilus, you don't

Ibtilus, you don't understand. You don't understand that the only reason they want to spread misery all over the world is because misery loves company. Do you want them to go to hell alone?

Important State Function = Federal Allocation

No surprise at this time of the month,the important state function is Federal Allocation.Yero has gone to Abuja to capture his first full Federal Allocation and then bring back half to Kaduna while the other disappears as standard practice,so I am sure he has being told he has to be there Zangon kataf or not..

TAKE EASY SOUTHERN KADUNA

The governor will surely come.

NIGERIAN LEADERS ARE ALL WICKED

If Obama with all the power he wields as president of USA,could give URGENT attention to his people in times of need and trouble then who is yero not to do same.Without apologies, Nigeria does not have leaders but MONSTERS AND VAMPIRES who derive pleasure in sucking the blood of the poor masses that they use to accomplish their selfish goals.

mr. ineptitude

If you follow the news you'd realise that this idiot gov wasn't voted in. He came into power after the late gov. Yakowa was killed. Now we r begining to see why they went to such great lengths just to kill yakowa. You can kill man but let's see if you can kill God. Useless hypocrites

souther kaduna attack,is unfortunate.

The attack of five people @ southern kaduna village is realy pathetic and is very unfortunate for attacking innocence soul.My advice to our leaders is to wake up and curtail the security challenges facing the north.We should please live together as one family irrespective of religion and ethinic background.May God give the families the fortitude to bear the lost.

What Do You Expect From Idiotic Hausa/fool-ani Governor?

I am not disappointed as I am not expecting any better from a Hausa/fool-ani possibly boko haram governor. Otherwise, how can a responsible governor jet off in a middle of crisis? There should be a Christian Southern Kaduna state away from the rest of the moslem boko haram rest of Kaduna as a panacea to the problem.

Governor Yero Shuns Victims’ Families, Dashes Off To Abuja

Gov. Yero, is never interested on what happen to people of southern Kaduna because to him they are less to nothing. He will only come running when he need their votes. Southern Kaduna people be warn this is the beginning, the Fulani people will not stop on less the people of southern Kaduna stand up to defend themselves. Hausa/Fulani people never have a life because their Religion and culture do not permit /encourage them engage in any social activate, that make them prom to violence with people that have purpose to live for.

SH Always inciting people

Did yakowa visit the place on the day thousands were butchered in southern kaduna in may 2011 !! Did jonathan visit borno in the last 3 years where tousands have been killed by Azazi and Ihejirika or the CAN army !!

Alhamdulillah

Alhamdulillah! Allah knws d reason why he took d lyf of infidel yakowa. After d 2011 post-election crisis, yakowa then as a gov refused to giv relief material to hausa muslims who were in refuge camp for 16 months, instead, he ordered them to vacate the place. I am frm katsina, and i knw wen d emir of katsina alhaji abdulmumini heard about this cruelity of yakowa, he (emir) then sent two trailors of food material, bt yakowa criticised the emir and said its illegal and he suppose to tld kdn gvt first. Now it is jst 1 day of d attack bt u r shouting everywhere. U need to wait 4 atleast 16 months b4 we open ur file and think about d possiblity of helping u.

RE: Southern Kaduna Killings

To hell with all the dead Arna killed by the Fulani warriors. Let them rot in Hell and may the injured Arna continue to suffer till the end of their life.

QUESTION: Tell me what I [the ROSTED Arne-in-command (Yakowa)] did to the displaced victims of the same communal clash ochestrated by the Arna youth warriors of Southern Kaduna?

ANSWER: They didn't get any sympathy other than being stationed, threatened and abandoned at Pilgrims camp over the years.

Is it not so ??????
Arnan Banza Tsinannu kawai

Blood of Innocent pple

Almighty God await for anybody behind this atrocity.
