Why Are The Southern Kaduna Youths Getting Arrested But No One Is Arresting Herdsmen? - Col Labo

In a trending video shared on social media platform, Twitter by Umar Sa'ad Hassan with the twitter handle @Alaye_100,

he tweeted

This is the reality on ground in Southern Kaduna & most territories plagued by insecurity..In the famous words of TY Danjuma 'They collude'.How many of these herdsmen are in court today?.How many boko haram terrorists are being prosecuted?.None.Buhari has released over 2000.

In the video, the retired Col Labo Hassan was heard addressing the Southern Kaduna crisis.

The highlight of the video is basically: How come the government only arrests the youth that try to defend their land, none of the Fulani herdsmen have been arrested - Col Labo

The following is the excerpt from the video....

How come the government only arrests the youths within the community who are more the less we want to refer to as JTF within the community who have taken it upon themselves saying "Look, we must protect our community" when there guys (the FUlani herdsmen) are coming to invade. 

Fine, when the guys (referring to the Fulani herdsmen) are coming to invade, the security agents don't see them to arrest.

It is only when the youths want to stand up and defend/protect our community, you see them to arrest.

A number of these youths are there in all sorts of cells in Kaduna State. 

How many of these herdsmen have been arrested ? ,he asked

Because frankly speaking, the situation in Southern Kaduna is not a herdsmen and Farmers' issue.

He said, maybe he'll throw some light to that later.

How many of these herdsmen have been arrested ? ,he reiterated.

He added, whenever they are arrested, they are just meant to be displayed before journalist for TV, for them to be paraded before the Television.

After that, it ends there.

How many have been prosecuted ? He asked.

Nil, he answered.

How many under detention ?

Nil, he answered.

ow many JTF, Southern Kaduna State youths are under detention ?

So, many. He added.
