Youths of Sanga local government area of Kaduna state, under the aegis of Concerned Southern Kaduna Youths (CSKY) have asked the federal government to declare a state of emergency in Kaduna state following killing of about 200 people in the area.
The group also blamed the Kaduna state governor, Alhaji Mukhtar Yero for allegedly not showing modest regard for the victims of the attacks, saying that the people of the area have lost confidence in the state government “which is seemingly unperturbed by the continued decimation of our people and the destruction of their means of livelihood.”
Mr Emmanuel Adamu, Chairman of Sanga said 2,400 people had been displaced following the recent attacks in the area by gunmen.
The youths who staged a peaceful protest against the killings on Thursday in Kagoro, Kaura local government area of Kaduna state, maintained that the declaration of state of emergency in Kaduna state was imperative to stem the tide of invasion by armed Fulani herdsmen who have killed many people and destroyed homes and crops.
