Kaduna — The quick intervention of the Paramount ruler of the Bajju, Nuhu Bature and the deployment of security agencies has calmed the protest embarked upon by the youth in Azasak-Madauchi near Zonkwa over the killings of a family of seven on Wednesday night and prevented it from spreading.
Addressing the youths, the Agwam Bajju asked them not to take the law into their hands as government was doing everything humanly possible to tackle the problem.
Also speaking, the Chairman, Interim Management Committee Zangon Kataf Local government Area, Dominic Gambo Yahaya who was at the scene, appealed to the youths to remain calm adding that violence can not be addressed with violence.
Speaking, National President of Bajju Development Association (BADA) youth wing, Gad Ezekel told the traditional ruler and the Local government chairman that the youth can not fold their hands while people are killed regularly in a community with a military checkpoint.
"We see no justice keeping the military personnel here while many people are been killed. If they are not going to improve their intelligence gathering, they have no
reason being here. We have agreed not to take the law into our hands but if these night killings continue, we will not agree because the people that are killing us
are not ghosts. We have been pushed to the wall and there will be problem if these things continue."
When contacted, the Kaduna police spokesman, Aminu Lawan said they have launched a man hunt to ensure that the perpetrators are brought to book.
"We have also beefed up security in the area and everywhere is calm. People should go about their businesses," Lawan said.
