A group, Neo Black Movement of Africa Worldwide (NBM), has called on the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to save the people of Southern Kaduna of the alleged genocidal ethnic cleansing by bandits in the area.The group also known as Aye confraternity expressed concern that the federal government had ignored the destruction going on in Southern Kaduna by bandits.
Recall that the SOKAPU over the years has cried out over alleged onslaught on their communities by suspected Fulani herdsmen, which it accused the Federal Government of ignoring.
The group in a statement issued by its Public Relations Officer, Mr Oluwatosin Dixon, appealed to the federal government to urgently address the disturbing trend.
The group noted with concern that if the attacks continued, the pursuit of development in the area will be a mirage.
The Neo Black Movement of Africa Worldwide condemnd in strong terms what it described as perceived ethnic cleansing by suspected Fulani herdsmen and onslaughts on Christian sects by extremists.
According to the group, “We are appalled by news of Christians facing ethnic cleansing in Southern Kaduna and Christian students routinely kidnapped by suspected Fulani terrorists with predominantly Christian schools inevitably shut down.”
The statement noted that it becomes ever more alarming when citizens contemplate a resort to self help in the face of perceived dereliction of functions by the Nigerian government.
The group noted that herdsmen killed 100 people in six days, burnt churches, destroyed houses in Southern Kaduna, added to the numerous other horrific reports, including that of suspected armed Fulani herdsmen killing no fewer than 100 Atyap natives in the last six days.
The NBM appealed to the Federal government to provide adequate secirity and protection for the besieged Southern Kaduna communities.
