Parade protest


Kaduna's youths protest about killings, kidnappings says ‘Gov. El-Rufai is sleeping’

The Southern Kaduna youths came out in their number protesting against killings, kidnappings and rapping in the state on Saturday.

Being filled up with the excessive killings, kidnappings and raping in the state, they came out to show their grievances on Saturday morning. This follows the worsening security under governor Nasir El-Rufai led government and chief security officer of the state.

The Punch reported that the youths who converged at Unity Fountain in Abuja, under the aegis of the Southern Kaduna People’s Union (SKPU) declared that the insecurity in the North-West state was becoming alarming and terrifying.

According to the youths, the security forces and the government, at all levels, must rise quickly from their deep slumber to calm the rising tension in the state.

The youths who came out were seen with different placards with inscriptions emblazoned on them, signifying their concerns on the level of insecurity in the state.

One of the youths who spoke with the Punch News with tears in her eyes said that the governor must rise to his responsibility and secure the innocent citizens who have had enough of the atrocities in the state.

She said, “The rapers raped children, women and killed people. Governor Nasir El-Rufai, you need to stand up to your responsibilities and protect lives and properties. For how long is this going to continue? We are tired of these; the killings must end.”

According to her, residents of Kaduna cannot comfortably sleep with their two eyes closed because of fear. She cited an example with how kidnappers abducted her cousin recently and the ransom they have before he was later released.

She noted that the governor does not even have sympathy for their plight. Furthermore, she called on the international community to come to their aid. 'Our governor is sleeping, something must be done', she declared.

Jane lamented that although securities are all over during protest like this, when there is killing and kidnapping, they are nowhere to be found.

In the report of Samuel Aruwan, the State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, bandits have killed not less than 222 persons, abducted 774 persons and the culprits injured 226 persons from April to June 2021.
