Southern Kaduna Massacre: Arresting Indigenes for defending themselves will not solve crisis – Shehu Sani
Comrade Shehu Sani, who’s a Senator representing Kaduna Central, has stated that the arrest of local indigenes for really defending themselves from their attackers attacking their villages and run back to the bushy areas at night will not solve the problem.
The senator made this known while speaking to the elders of the Barnawa APC when a woman made complains of the challenges Southern Kaduna are facing during a courtesy call on Monday.
According to the senator, the ungodly situation in the Southern part of Kaduna is not left out, also stressing there that there was the need for all hands to be on deck to nip the situation with all sense of sincerity.
“If there no any form of peace in Southern Kaduna, there is no way the state as a whole can be in peace. We must stay together as long as God brought us as one,” Shehu Sani added.
Shehu Sani disclosed that,” Southern Kaduna is faced with four problems, Issue of Christians and Muslims which has been there for more than fourty years, clashes between farmers and herdsmen, visitors and indigene and people who hide in the bush to attack innocent people at night for no reasons.
“What is happening now in Southern Kaduna has happened in Birnin Gwari, Zamfara and other parts of the the country.
“There must be a holistic approach in stemming the situation. A poor man in Southern Kaduna is faced with the same problem with a man from Zaria which is caused by corruption,” he pointed out.
He emphasized that at the time of Saudauna, a Kataf person, a man from Kano and Katsina are all one but today showing differences has growned to be a cancer in our generation.
According to him, “If you remove General Muhamadu Buhari who declared his asset, nine per cent out 10 are corrupt. If you have not forgotten, it was not APC that killed PDP but its members. Iy was not a skin disease that killed PDP but stomach pains, injustice and lack of truth which is now happening in APC,” Shehu Sani added.
Senator Sani urged Barnawa APC elders to be conscious of some political leaders who do not care about their well being but in the next eight months they will start seeing them and their posters.
“The colossal amount of money being spent on the media to attack to insult Comrade Shehu Sani is enough to do good projects,” he stressed.
He urged the elders to come up with a serious project that will serve as a benefit to Barnawa community which will be sponsored by him.
The elders gave huge thanks to the senator for remembering them, because according to them, they said they’ve not really benefited anything from this government. We are facing challenges of our youth unemployed and women not being empowered.
