Southern Kaduna: SOKAPU alleges
fresh killings, arson despit
Despite the 24-hour curfew, suspected Fulani militias have
allegedly invaded Unguwan Gankon village in Gora ward in
Zangon Kataf local government area of Kaduna State, killing
two persons and burning 7 houses.
Recall that Zangon Kataf local government area has been on
24-hour curfew for about 63 days following the Zangon Kataf
unrest when a farmer was alleged to have been killed in
farmland.
The Southern Kaduna Peoples Union, SOKAPU, National Public
Relations Officer, Luka Binniyat, in a statement said,
“Yesterday, 18th August 2020, amidst a rigidly imposed
punishing 24 hrs curfew that is 63 days today, armed Fulani
militia invaded Unguwan Gankon village in Gora ward, Zangon
Kataf local government area and killed two persons and burnt
7 houses. Neighbours, however, came to their rescue and the
murderers fled.
“The name of the victims are Kefas Malachy Bobai, a 30-year-
old farmer and father of three and Miss Takama Paul, 16, a
student.”
The statement explained that
Though armed troops arrived after the killers had escaped,
SOKAPU said it was grateful that there was a response from
the military.
The statement observed, “The previous day, 17th August 2020,
Mr Bulus Joseph, 48, father of 9 was murdered gruesomely in
his farm at Sabon Gida Idon along Kaduna – Kachia road, in
Kajuru LGA, by armed Fulani militia. He stood up to the killers
so that his wife and 3 children could escape, which they did.
But he paid the price with his life as he was sub-humanely
butchered by the cold-blooded murderers.
