Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasiru el-Rufa’i, has vowed to punish the perpetrators of the recent crisis in Kasuwan Magani, Kajuru Local Government Area, which led to several deaths.
Speaking during a Town Hall meeting on Sunday in Kasuwan, the governor declared that his administration would not tolerate acts of lawlessness and called on the people of the state to live in peace with one another irrespective of their differences.
el-Rufai decried the manner in which the social media is being used by self-centered residents of the community to cause mayhem through the spread of fake news and hate speeches.
The governor described such act as criminal and vowed that those engaged in it would be duly identified and punished.
He said security agents are monitoring and tracking masterminds of crisis in the state.
He appealed to citizens of the state to report any culprit to security agencies, assuring them that criminals would never go free under his administration.
In his suggestion on how to end crisis in Kasuwar Magani, the District Head of Kufana, Mr Titus Dauda appealed for additional security personnel and resources in the community.
Oh his part, the Sarkin Kasuwar Magani, Ibrahim Abdullahi, said lack of necessary action against perpetrators has helped in fueling more crisis in the area and appealed to the state government to look into the matter.
He stressed that traditional leaders irrespective of religion and tribe, must shun sentiment and report any criminal act in their chiefdoms.
On his part, the Secretary of Jama’atu Nasril Islam in Kajuru local government, Tijjani Muhammad, also appealed to the governor to ensure that perpetrators “are really brought to book.”
He recalled that some of those known to have actively participated in the crisis in the past, were arrested and released.
The Secretary of Christian Association of Nigeria in the area, Pastor Joseph Maigida, also expressed similar concern.
He also emphasized on the importance of living in peace with one another and urged religious and traditional leaders to always preach peace to their followers.
