Former Kaduna State federal lawmaker and social activist, Senator Shehu Sani, has lamented the rising cases of killings in the Southern part of his state.
Recall that terrorists on Sunday night reportedly killed over 28 people in separate attacks in Malagum 1 and Sokwong communities of Kagoro Chiefdom in Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
The Council Chairman, Hon. Mathias Siman, who confirmed the incident on Monday, said he could only confirm seven people gruesomely killed in Sokwong Community.
Hon. Mathias added that all the houses in Sokwong Community had been completely razed down by the terrorist adding that he is yet to confirm the killings in Malagum one.
There has been bloodletting in Southern Kaduna as terrorists seemed to have designated that part of the state for persistent and constant attacks.
Speaking on the persisting terrorist activities in the region, Senator Sani who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the 8th Assembly described the killings in Southern Kaduna by a terrorist group as systemic.
According to him, even though it is clear that no part of Kaduna State is spared from the violent killings and kidnappings in the state, the people of Southern Kaduna are institutionally treated like the blacks under apartheid South Africa.
“No part of Kaduna is spared of terrorists’ attacks, violence and kidnappings. However, the killings in Southern Kaduna by terrorists group is systemic; the people of that part of the state are also institutionally treated like the blacks under apartheid South Africa,” He said.
