The Youth Wing of the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU), have said that what is going on in Southern Kaduna is pure murder and not revenge killings as painted by the Presidency.
The Presidency had in a statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Shehu Garba, while trying to explain their failure to protect the lives and property of locals that are being killed on a daily basis, said it was a revenge killings.
But the youth in a statement signed by the leader, Comrade John Isaac, said, “It is sad and demeaning that instead of the Presidency owning up to its gross failures and lack of will in ending the brutal killings of innocent citizens by its kinsmen, it has resulted into blame games.
“It must be stated that there are no such thing as revenge killings in Southern Kaduna as painted by Mallam Shehu Garba.
“What is going on in the region are pure acts of murder and terrorism by Fulani militia killing scores of people on daily basis.
The group call on government to address and arrest the deteriorating security situation in the Southern part of Kaduna to calm the mountain tensions building up across the region.
The group further said they noted with dismay and deliberate attempt to mislead the Nigerian populace and the international community on the organized and systematic attacks taking place in Southern Kaduna by Fulani herdsmen, insisting that the killings going on is a kind of gang battle by criminal elements which government failed to arrest for over six years.
