The socio-cultural group, Southern Kaduna Peoples’ Union (SOKAPU), has donated food items, clothes and medical supplies to over 10,000 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in two camps situated at Zonkwa and Samaru Kataf all in Zango Kataf Local Government Area of the state.

The National Women Coordinator of the union, Jemuta Alheri Katama, who presented the items to the two camps on behalf of the union’s President, Jonathan Asake, said it has become imperative for the union to identify with people who have been neglected by the government.

Jemuta noted that the ‘carnage’ being meted on Atyap land calls for urgent attention both within and outside the country, adding that the people need help from the government, NGOs and spirited individuals.

“We’re calling on the government and the international community to come to the aid of these victims who have lost everything,” she appealed. The Coordinator of ECWA Widows camp in Samaru Kataf, Rev. Victor Elisha Yahaya, disclosed that 5,500 people, among them women and children, were registered in the camp on the 8th June 2021.

“We lost two people from the camp, among them a pregnant woman. They were left to attend to their domestic works but they were trapped and gruesomely killed,” he said.
