The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has condemned Wednesday’s attack in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State, which claimed nine lives, saying the killings in the area were an indication that governments are failing the people.

The ACF in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Emmanuel Yawe, reminded local, state and federal governments that their primary responsibility as stated in the country’s constitution is to protect life and property.

It stated that the forum was alarmed with reports of yet another attack in Kajuru by armed bandits, adding that, “of recent, there have been repeated attacks on the people living in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State. The most recent attack left nine people in Angwan Tudu area of the LG dead on Wednesday, 3rd June, 2020.”

“This waste of life is uncalled for, and we condemn it without reservation. The Kajuru community has lived together from time immemorial, and we do not see any reason why they should start killing themselves as they have been doing in the recent past.”

The forum called on Kajuru traditional and religious leaders to call their people to order, while urging security men to act swiftly by apprehending the murderers and bringing them to book.

“They should also increase surveillance in the area to preempt such attacks in the future,” the ACF further said.
