We Have Lost Faith In Yakowa And Security Agencies, Say Southern Kaduna Protesters

By SaharaReporters, New York

Some citizens in Kaduna State say they have lost faith in their governor, Mr. Patrick Yakowa and the security agencies in Southern Kaduna, following today’s incident in which unidentified gunmen killed seven members of the same family and set their bodies ablaze.

The suspects, alleged to be Fulani ranchers in Azansak village of Zonkwa area of Zaongo Kataf local government in the Southern part of Kaduna, attacked the family at about midnight, local time.

Kazzah Peter, one of the participants in the anti-soldiers protest that followed in the Zonkwa area, told SaharaReporters via telephone that the communities are demanding the removal of soldiers in Zangon Kataf local government.  

He explained that the presence of the soldiers has no significance, describing them as “just a stumbling block against our self defence, [and also] not defending us nor stopping attacks against us.”

He said: “I am telling you that we have lost faith in Governor Yakowa and the military check points in all our communities. They are all signs of no hope and we will no longer trust in them. No more assurances of peace and law abiding, any attack on us we will no longer listen to so called government’s weak strategy of calming us down.”

Turning to the State governor, he said, “Every day you hear Yakowa saying they are committed and spending millions of money in security. Where is the security? Where is the evidence that public funds are being expended on security? What is relevance of the peace parleys every day? We are opting out, let him know that we have lost faith and hope in his government, they cannot secure us, let them pack the soldiers and let us handle our destinies.

Imagine, a governor that cannot come and see for himself a community that six people of same family were gunned down and burnt. What emergency can hold a human being from such calamity?

“Soldiers are not far from the scene and they turn a blind eye, when the Fulani finished shooting and burnt our people, they now appeared and started harassing us from protesting their inefficiency. We are fed up with anything of government’s promise because we are carrying our lives on our heads. Something fundamental is wrong and we have told ourselves the reality, that this government cannot protect us. Let soldiers just pack.”
Peter recalled that the situation was the same during the violence that accompanied the presidential election in 2011.

“The violence [started] here with the Hausa-Fulani first killing over ten persons and burning our houses. But the government set up a Kangaroo Commission that ended up being political and accused us of starting the violence, and backing up lies that we possessed sophisticated guns and killed them via propaganda. All the people they indicted are mostly old people and cannot even feed let alone buy weapons.”

Dominic Yahya, the chairman of the local government, did not answer his phone when SaharaReporters called him from New York.

this a sad story and that the

this a sad story and that the military cannot safeguard the people in their custody. It is so sad because the military are the same hause-funali whose kinsmen are the perpetrators of this dastardly act. The military is mainly occupied by this sect of people who cannot even read and write yet the better qualified southerners are left out. Until we balance this inbalance we will not have peace because the enemy cannot protect you.

REPRISAL KILLLINGS IN SOUTHERN KADUNA.

Those Igbos and SS shouting about secession should shut up. You can't bluff us anymore with the noise of secession.You are very lazy that is why you push cocaine, send your women to europe, kidnap, commit armed robbery and petroleum related corruption. See how you are trying to kill the petroleum subsidy report. You can't fool us all the time. If you really want to secede you know what to do. Why are you falling on your selves to buy land in Abuja with cocaine money and petroleum corruption money if you want to secede. The reality is that there is no land to accomodate all of una and also no where to farm in the forests and creeks.

REPRISAL KILLLINGS IN SOUTHERN KADUNA.

May the soul of the departed rest in peace. The same security agents that the southern kaduna peple are complaining about left you to kill and cannibalise the bodies of hausa fulani whose crime was only protesting election rigging by your prophet Jonathan. The majority of secuity agents killing, looting and maiming people in Maiduguri,Mubi, Yobe and Plateau state or robbing peope in Zamfara and Niger States are from Southern Kaduna and Plateau states. You are so blinded by hatred that you cannibalise your huasa fulani victims.You have to repent your evil ways.

The people that hate you

The people that hate you igbos most are SS, they will kill you and take your properties. SS man is already eyeing your property in his area when trouble starts. Igbos always like to pride themselves on emptiness!
Yorubas are not cowardly, they are simply intelligently calculative, igbos are noise makers with physical energy that has no direction.
Hausas are simply lazy bimbos but crafty political players.

3RD WORLD WAR COMING SOON.. FORGET BOKO HARAM

You people are still talking o0f Nigeria, our case is mie mie case, The recent trouble we ought to beg and pray hard not to happen is the coming of the 3rd world war which is fast generating from Alqaeda in Mali, war in Syria, Gaza, Isreal vs Gaza with Egypt supporting Gaza, France supporting the Arab League and UK still considering where to join.. Am quite sure that the peace we have now will soon be over.My fellow Nigerians a great catastrophe will soon occur, the world is no longer safe, even Jonathan knows this. THE COMING OF THE 3RD WORLD WAR

Chijoke, you are a fool and a

Chijoke, you are a fool and a coward! Who told you that if Nigeria will dsintegrate the SS will go with the SE? The SE are full of criminals. In every ten thieves in Nigeria eight are from the SE. May be your illitrate father did not tell you that

Blood sucking demons

Before they took delight in sucking Igbo bloods. With no Igbo in sight, they sucking their own blood. Ekene Dili Chukwu

Secession is the COMPLETE solution

I still do not understand the relationship between a man from Warri, PH, Enugu etc and another from Sokoto or Zamfara. 1914 was a disaster.

1914 is an aberration. There is no one continent with such gaping diversity and divergence of its peoples as u find in continent Nigeria. There is no basis for coexistence except that the parasitic North & cowardly West of continent Nigeria wud want to continue to feed on the wealth of the SS & SE countries. This is totally unacceptable to the SS & SE.

The SS & SE should break away now. This Nigeria is too large for one centre. Confederation or total fragmentation is the COMPLETE solution. The SS & SE will be kind enough to give hand outs of oil money to d North & West countries. So, dont be afraid, you will not die of hunger.

God bless the republic of the SS & SE

KILLINGS IN S/KADUNA

What I will say is that if we continue killing people like that what is the benefit to the society and to the person killing people.

The mistake people have and really a mistake is that they are doing the work of god or God. they are behaving like Judas who betrayed Jesus christ with the hope that christ will escape and he has gotten money .not knowing that he was fulfilling a prophecy.God will help people to understand that the only way to salvation of the soul is through Jesus Christ accept it or leave it. that is the bitter or sweet truth. the earlier the world and Nigerian think positively the better for us.

As long our rogue leaders

As long our rogue leaders continue to see enough to loot Nigeria is working and in the right direction

Don't Blame Yakowa

i sympathise withe the community and d families. But the community should know that Yakowa can only provide money for security; he's not in control of any security outfit. That's why some sections are calling for state police. Families have been wiped out under the nose of the military and other security agents and the same community members are arrested for attempting a reprisal. This is the sad tale of our security system. No security agent will be asked to give explanation.

Nigeria isn't a Country. It's a Continent. Break up now!

“Soldiers are not far from the scene and they turn a blind eye, when the Fulani finished shooting and burnt our people, they now appeared and started harassing us from protesting their inefficiency. We are fed up with anything of government’s promise because we are carrying our lives on our heads. Something fundamental is wrong and we have told ourselves the reality, that this government cannot protect us. Let soldiers just pack.”

I said it before and I say it again, Nigeria is not a country but a continent. This kind of thing - Partisan soldiers or security agents, only exists where there are two or more nations involved. In this case the two countries are Southern Kaduna Christains & Northern Kaduna Fulani Muslim countries. The only place the Hausa Fulani lives in peace is where they are allowed to be rulers and make the land owners slaves. i.e., where they preside over cowards-in Yoruba Kwara...Long live the United States of the SS & SE.

SLOWLY NIGERIANS ARE UNDERSTANDING THE NEED FOR A LEADER

IT IS NOT A CHRISTIAN OR A MUSLIM LEADER THAT IS NEEDED BY ANY COMMUNITY. IT IS THE HONEST AND STEADFAST LEADER THAT CARE FOR THE PEOPLE. JUST BEFORE THE 2011 ELECTION A PROMINENT SHEIKH WAS ROUNDLY CONDEMNED BY THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY IN KANO WHEN HE DECLARED IN A LOCAL RADIO STATION THAT WHEN MUSLIM VOTE THEY SHOULD NOT VOTE FOR A MUSLIM LEADER BUT A JUST LEADER EVEN IF THAT LEADER IS A CHRISTIAN! THAT WAS CONDEMNABLE AS FAR AS KANO MUSLIMS WERE CONCERNED EVEN THOUGH THE PROPHET OF ISLAM HAS DECLARED LONG AGO THAT THE CRITERIA FOR LEADERSHIP IS NOT RELIGION, HEAR HIM:" GOD WILL PROTECT AND EXTEND THE REIGN OF THE JUST LEADER EVEN IF HE IS NOT A MUSLIM, BUT HE WILL CUT SHORT THE RULE OF THE UNJUST EVEN IF HE IS A MUSLIM."

IT IS ENCOURAGING THAT MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIANS IN NIGERIA ARE COMING TO TERMS WITH THE NEED FOR A JUST LEADER NOT THE ONE THAT PRACTICE MY RELIGION.
