Women, Youths Storm Streets In Large Numbers To Protest Killing In Southern Kaduna
Following the incessant killings in Southern part of Kaduna State, women and youths have reportedly stormed out in large numbers on Saturday, August 8 to stage a protest in the area.
While lamenting the incessant killings by bandits, the protesters called on the Federal and State governments to put an end to the attacks that have claimed the lives of so many.
One of the protesters who spoke on behalf of other aggrieved protesters identified as Mrs. Dorcas David called on the Kaduna State Government to remove the curfew imposed in the area as a matter of urgency as the curfew gives the assailants easy access to their villages to kill them.
“The military that was deployed has been baised in protecting lives and properties and has become a tool that is used in killing them. It is unfortunate that our killers could still beat security check-points, invade our communities and carry out all kinds of heinous acts for hours without any interruption.
We have called the military on several occassions when our communities are under attacks but they only come when the attackers must have finished their operations and left.
We’re letting the whole world know that the military sent to guard us have now formed part of the problem we are facing in Southern Kaduna.”
