- Dr. Sa’ad Abubakar III has condemned the killings in southern Kaduna
- Abubakar described the killings as madness that has to be stopped immediately
- Going further, he called on those involved in killings in Southern Kaduna to stop the act
As senseless killings continue without any sign of stopping in the southern part of Kaduna, the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III, has called for an end to the killings which he described as madness.
Abubakar who is also chairman of the Northern Traditional Rulers Council while speaking at the meeting of Northern Traditional Rulers’ Council in Kaduna on Monday, September 7, said the madness must stop immediately.
Going further, the respected monarch called on those involved in the killings to stop the dastardly act. He said enough is enough. Specifically, he accused politicians of fueling the crises.
“No man in his right senses go on a killing spree of innocent people under whatever guise,” he added.
Meanwhile, Nigerians have reacted to the Sultan's declaration. While some praised him for his position, others tackled him, claiming the monarch should have spoken long ago.
Jacob Samuel on his part wrote: "Until we stop the rehabilitation of these killers. There’s no peace they’ll continue cos that’s what your northern government bargained for."
"The governor knows them, he paid them to stop the killings, they are revenging, they said no peace according to Miyetti Allah," Samson Shans added.
Recall that Legit.ng had reported that the governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai. also recently rocked the boat when he spoke on the crisis in southern Kaduna.
He said some leaders in the affected region accused him of taking sides in the crisis.
These leaders, he added, wanted to be “appeased” but he insisted that his administration will not grease the palms of those whom he described as trouble-makers.
In another development, Legit.ng reported that the association for cattle breeders in Kaduna the Miyetti Allah, has decided to end the disagreement between its members and their neighbours in the southern part of the state.
MACBAN - the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, Kaduna chapter, said it will now work for the return of peace in Southern Kaduna.
MACBAN's resolve was announced in a communique after a peace meeting the same day.
“We have agreed to revert to our olden days' relationship with our neighbouring communities in Southern Kaduna.
