El-Rufai exposes those responsible for Southern Kaduna crisis

The Governor of Kaduna State, H E Nasir El-Rufai, has blamed the violence and wanton killings in the Southern part of the state on some religious leaders.

He said this when receiving a delegation led by Primate of the Anglican Church of Nigeria, Most Reverend Henry Ndukuba at Government House, Kaduna on Thursday. The governor said the clerics use their platform to preach disunity and hate which leads to violence in the state.

El-Rufai, however, noted that this government has been able to reduce the violence and killings in the state to the barest minimum, adding that his administration will put an end to insecurity in the state.

He said: “Our study of the situation over four decades has shown that the main drivers of this violence are a few clerics that use their platforms, not to preach peaceful co-existence or promote our common humanity.

“Rather, they use their platforms and revered positions to divide and incite violence. I was sad to hear from the primate that he was a victim in 1987, when his house was burnt down in Wusasa, Zaria.

“In those days, the primate will recall that this sort of violence starts from one part of the state and spreads all over the state.

“One credit that this government gets from everyone, including our adversaries, has been our ability to contain these outbreaks to their points of origin.”

Speaking earlier, Most Rev. Ndukuba called on both Christians and Muslims to work to make the state and nation better. He also asked the governor to do his better in ensuring that no life is lost in the Southern part of the state.

    1. Religious inciment
    2. Language difference
    3. Tribalism
    4. Sectionalism
    Kaduna state will return to normal self where Christan and Muslim leave in house. Every tribe share the same idea. Intermarriage among the tribe and peaceful co existing among each section.

    1. He knows that we do not believe him. But that there’s nothing we can do about it. Is that why his government is not responding to the distress calls? Is that why the killers of the traditional ruler he invited for’peace’ meeting were not fished out? Are the clerics the reason these criminals successfully displaced the locals and they are not dealt with? Let him fear God o.

  3. If you’re putting blames on some religious leaders that the are responsible for killing of innocent people in part of the state that is southern Kaduna fetch them out so as to clean your hands on this curse…God will revealed all those that are behind the killing of our father mother, sister and our brother as last..

  7. What was the governor saying? why can’t he arrest them, if he knew them and didn’t arrest them, it means that he is part of them. I really don’t trust that man and he can never convince me that he is hundred percent neutral In that issues. because his methods of approach to that situation is doubtful.

  8. El-Rufia is a crimal and a bias politician always looking for what he knows will divide the attention of the public to the evil he is chastrating on the southern Kaduna as an excuss for his bad and evil leadership in the state. The same way he was turning people’s attention when he was demolishing public properties in abuja on the disguise of mordetnizing the city of which 70% of the areas affected up till now are still as they were by then. There is only one God that will judge every human being

  9. People are saying there religion is a peace, just for mouth, why always killing, hungry of sucking human blood? Listing Nigeria is of God, not Iraq, libiya,libeno,

  10. PLS, ITS ANY LAW IS MORE GREATER THAN FEDERAL GOVERNMENT LAW? I PERSONALLY BLAME FEDERAL GOVT ALLOW PRIVATE INDIVIDUAL TO CREATE THERE OWN LAW, IF ITS LIKE THESE LET EVERY BODY OR OTHERS RELIGION TO ESTABLISH THEIR OWN LAW AND SHUNT FEDERAL LAW, WHY ALLOW ONE RELIGION OPERATING, ARE THE SUPERIOR , READER THINK WELL
