Some irate women went on rampage in Kafachan Jama Local Government Area of Kaduna state protesting half-n*ked against the Government over the killing of their children by alleged Fulani herdsmen.
It would be recalled that some weeks ago, the Governor of the state Nasir El-Rufai had said he had to pay some Fulani herdsmen to stop them from slaughtering villagers in the Southern Kaduna.
It was gathered that the women were forced to strip after alleging that soldiers had killed some youths who took to the streets to protest against the killing of innocent lives in Southern Kaduna by Fulani herdsmen.
The women stormed the Jema’a Local Government secretariat unclad disrupting an ongoing security meeting being chaired by El-rufai.
The women told the Governor that soldiers had followed some of the youths who were embarking on a protest, shooting sporadically, killing one and injuring many around Garaje, Kafanchan.
Gov. El-Rufai  who was at the Emir of Jema’a’s palace today, vowed to bring to book perpetrators of the protest that led to the destruction of property in Kafanchan metropolis.
Governor El-Rufa’i, after inspecting the extent of destruction, said the dastardly act must not be allowed to continue.

Sultan Sa’ad Abubakar

Sultan dissociates himself from dastardly acts

The Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III, on Tuesday dissociated himself and other Muslims from the killing of Christians in the name of Islam.

“The Sokoto Sultanate Council, all traditional rulers and the generality of the Muslims, have dissociated themselves from such dastardly acts.

“Islam abhors the killing of any innocent souls without following the due legal processes,” he said.

The Sultan spoke when former Head of State, Abdulsalam Abubakar, paid him a courtesy call.

“We are always committed to the growth and development of Islamic religion, but in line with its teachings and law.

“Muslims should even persuade non-Muslims to join the religion by their good conduct and strict adherence to the Islamic law.

“We should, therefore, live peacefully with our Christian brothers and not attempt to kill them,” the Sultan said.

The Sultan commended Mr. Abubakar for his dexterity and commitment to peace and unity in Nigeria, and globally.

Mr. Abubakar extolled the sterling virtues of the Sultan, describing him as a pillar of peace, unity and peaceful coexistence.

“The Sultan has been facilitating peace, unity and understanding between Muslims and Christians in Nigeria and beyond,” he said.

He stressed the need for the use of dialogue to resolve all the problems of Nigeria, adding that this could be done in spite of the diverse religious, cultural and ethnic differences.

Mr. Abubakar, told the Sultan that he was in Sokoto to inaugurate the state university and commended the state Governor, Aliyu Wamakko, for transforming Sokoto State.

The dignitaries at the university’s inauguration included former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, and Adamawa State Governor, Murtala Nyako.
