The lockdown In Nigeria has come with so many bad stories though Fulani herdsmen crisis has been going on before the lockdown came calling.
The people of Tudun Wada in Kaduna state has their story to tell:
Caveat: Viewers discretion advised:
This morning, Wednesday 3rd June 2020, another sleepy Adara community in Tudun Wada of Doka Avong, Idon ward of Kajuru LGA, Kaduna State came under severe attack by suspected Fulani herdsmen terrorists. At the end of the attacks, nine (9) lives were lost:
- Richard Yusuf
- Kefas Yusut
- Fidelis Wada
- Genesis Soja
- Victoria Gyata
- Rose Soja
- Rahab Soja
- Name not yet known
NB: This much was confirmed by the Chairman, Hon Cafra Caino in a press release made public today with the number of those killed (9) though without the names and mention of the ethnic group that suffered this barbaric cruelty.
He was quick to mention with “pains in his heart” days back in another press release that 11 Rugas (thatched houses) of Fulanis were burnt without any human casualty but silent about the the names of those killed and their ethnic group in today’s attack.
We will never make any progress as long as we don’t hold our leaders accountable for the lingering crisis and wanton destruction of lives and property. The Adaras have seen death and destruction and its about time we say enough is enough. It’s about time we put our government and security forces on the spotlight.
As the Minneapolis Police Chief, Medaria Arrandondo rightly posited at the heat of the protests in America some days back “to be silent in an action, means are complicity”.
On the crisis in Adara land, our governor has been silent and we accuse him of complicity.
