It is a horrifying scene from hell, the painful, dark and troubling picture emerging from Southern Kaduna, a state in Nigeria’s north central region, only a two hour drive from Abuja, the country’s seat of power.

The mutilated bodies of babies, children, women and the elderly are spread almost everywhere, from the living room to the bedroom, from the dusty floor to the bare, cold and silent ground.

Some of the victims have their necks cut, others have their stomachs open. It’s difficult to watch. It’s difficult to describe. It’s hard to comprehend. But it’s been going on since February 9 this year, with authorities doing little to stop it, apprehend the culprits, prosecute and punish them. There are many words but few concrete actions.

  1. Leaders are wrongly detained without evidence to show. Such as the community leaders and Union Executives are presently under detention. Instead of using them and the other Fulani herdsmen leaders to dialogue for lasting solution, instead they are “hanging the dog in order to give it a bad name”. Is unwise, selfish, barbaric and this is rather a calculated mischiefs. Any leader or concern citizen who ear out solution or wants to talk will also be arrested, detained if possible without Bail. This is tyranny to the highest order in a civilized world. NB: while you are spreading the Gospel truth dully escalate to to the Human Rights both in Nigeria and International about the silence genocides taking place in Southern Kaduna, so when the chips are down we know who refused to play a peaceful role for peace to reign. Only one side are mainly detained when ever there is reprisals but none of the chiefs/leaders are question. Please if only the President and the Governor will exhibits justice, this herdsmen will continue to take the law into their hands.

  2. Yes, is a welcomed development, keep it up so as to reach the whole world. If the leaders are finding it interesting and can not put an end to this clashes why not someone some where show concern and a way forward to bring to an end the mayhem. By spreading it to authorities concerns that cares & value human lives. Believing that it is One God that created us the same and order us to multiply. And all equal before Him. We in Southern Kaduna are peace loving people that accommodated every religion and allowed them to enjoyed education and medical attention without prejudices since the early coming of the missionary till date. But today Southern Kaduna are treated like second class citizens, in other words slaves in their mother land. With that we did not complain.
    An 99.5 Southern Kaduna people are farmers and hunters that can feed themselves 100 years without begging on the street. Further more, because of our level of education and industrious we are denied of State of our own, which would have bring a lasting solution. I bet challenge any one to try it. Give us a state of our own and see rapid development and plentiful revenue to the federal government must especially.
    Please let the whole world know our plight and the genocides taking place in Southern Kaduna, God can use some one where to bring a lasting solution. God help SK, Kaduna State and Nigeria at large. Amen.

  3. Mr dahirru
    That attack you referenced were a reprisal to earlier attack(s) by the herders .You and every informed Nigerian knows that the Fulani militia are always on the provoking bargain even at this moment. But the best thing for people like you to do is peace advocacy .

  4. Your write up sound very concerning ….i had hoped you show same concerns and cry out to USA, Britain, Germany, Canada, France etc when communities occupied by fulani Muslims was attacked by Christians of southern Kaduna and killed nearly 200 women, children and Elderly people. . Those killed have their throat cut out, head smashed , bodies burnt and mangled while their homes burnt completely. . CAN and Christian’s celebrated the killings in southern kaduna. … Please stop violence it only represent mutual destruction. ….and don’t fan embers of disunity on the bases of religion and tribe…..
