The on-going genocide in Southern Kaduna, continues to claim more victims with the ambush and murder of a travelling company of students training in the local teachers’ college on Sunday, January 22, 2017.
Audu Maikori, a lawyer and music industry mogul, has taken to micro-blogging website, Twitter to announce the murder of six students of the College of Education in Gidan Waya in Southern Kaduna, the epicentre of the Fulani herdsmen militia.
Over 800 people have been murdered by the Islamist terrorist group in a space of 6 months and the numbers keep increasing as the Muhammadu Buhari administration shows open support for the Fulani killers while casting blame on the Christian communities being massacred by the Islamists.
According to Maikori, one of the victims was a driver to his brother who was travelling with his schoolmates in the College of Education. The group was ambushed and murdered by the Fulani herdsmen.
Governor Nasir El Rufai of Kaduna State has publicly admitted that his government has found the members of the Fulani militia perpetuating the killing in Southern Kaduna and he has paid them a “compensation” for them to stop the killings. The governor revealed that the militia is made up of Fulani nomads from neighboring Cameroon, Mali, Niger and other countries.
The victims of these murders are Christians and their attackers are on an ethnic and religious cleaning mission, according to the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN.
While Christians leaders have called on communities under attack to defend themselves against their attackers, Muslim clerics in Kaduna have called for the arrest of Christian religious and political leaders from Kaduna and other parts of the country who have called on Christians to defend themselves against their attackers.
These exchanges have led to an intense political environment
Maikori offered a prescription in the set of tweets announcing this sad incident.
