Shortage Of Food, Medicare Hit Southern Kaduna After Attacks


Shortage of food, drugs and other relief materials has hit Southern Kaduna communities following persistent attacks by gunmen suspected to be Fulani militiamen.

Four local government areas of Southern Kaduna – Zango-Kataf, Kaura, Kauru and Jemaa – have been under persistent attacks, forcing the state government to impose a curfew on them.

Following a week-long attack on communities in the LGAs and the inability of the villagers, who are subsistence farmers, to go to the farm, hunger has crept into the communities.

Sources, who spoke with Punch, said some of the Internally Displaced Person camps, especially at Zonkwa, were being flooded by displaced villagers, including aged women and children.

It was learnt that the development has led to a shortage of food, drugs and relief materials in the camps, as well as in the communities.

A farmer, Jatau Mutum, told Punch that since Saturday, the IDP camp at Zonkwa had witnessed an increased number of displaced persons from Zikpat and other communities under attack.

Mutum, however, added that there was no commensurate food and medical supplies to take care of those at the camp.

"Before now, the ECWA church camp was sustaining no fewer than 1,500 IDPs, but we have over 3,000 displaced persons following the recent attacks on some communities," he said.

The spokesman for the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union, Luis Binniyat, stated that daily the union was besieged by calls from families who were starving because "there is no market and farming activities have come to a stop."

"Both the federal and state governments are not ready to look into the plight of the displaced persons in Southern Kaduna," he added.

Meanwhile, the Muslim community in Southern Kaduna, under the aegis of the Muslim Youth Foundation of Southern Kaduna, has alleged isolated killing of its members in the area.

The group added that Muslims were being targeted for killing following attacks on Zikpak in the Jemaa LGA where no fewer than nine persons were killed on Friday.

The chairman of the group, Mohammed Bello, in a statement, said, "Guerrilla attack on Muslims, who are either in transit or in the process of carrying out their legitimate business, has been going on in Southern Kaduna for quite some time now."

Following the recent attacks, Governor Nasir El-Rufai, on Friday, extended the 24-hour curfew to Jema'a and Kaura LGAs.

In a related development, a religious organisation, Interfaith Dialogue Forum for Peace, on Monday expressed the fear that the killings in Southern Kaduna could unleash hunger on the people of the region and the state.

The organisation recommended that more security posts should be put in place in Southern Kaduna to check the spate of killings, adding that the security post personnel should work with the communities.

A statement by the co-chairmen of IDFP, Bishop Sunday Onuoha and Alhaji Kunle Sanni, called on Kaduna State Government to put in more efforts towards protecting the lives and property of citizens to ensure sustainable peace in all parts of the state.

EndLooting, Enough is Enough: Stop the Looting of Public Funds in Nigeria!


Nigeria ranked 145th out of 180 countries in the 2023 Corruption Perception Index, with a score of only 25%.


This means the public perception of corruption in our government is alarmingly high, and it's impacting all of us.

Elected and appointed officials are supposed to serve the people, not themselves. Yet, we see looting of public funds, financial indiscipline, and misappropriation happening right before our eyes.

Imagine:

  • Hospitals lacking basic equipment while legislators cruise in N160 million SUVs.
  • Teachers struggling to make ends meet while public officials pocket unrealistic salaries and allowances.
  • Infrastructure crumbling while funds meant for development disappear into private pockets.

20 most corrupt Nigerians

https://youtu.be/aZBDbd9UE_g?si=xCUtYgdAR1gL5Gpr


This blatant disregard for the people's well-being is stealing our future. It's impeding development, eroding trust, and deepening inequality.

We can't stay silent anymore!

Here's what we can do:

  • Speak out! Share this message, raise your voice on social media, and demand accountability.
  • Report corruption! Transparency International provides a platform to anonymously report suspected cases: https://www.transparency.org/en/countries/nigeria
  • Hold your elected officials accountable! Ask them tough questions, demand transparency, and vote for candidates who prioritize integrity.

Together, we can fight corruption and build a better Nigeria. It's time to reclaim our resources and our future!Spread awareness, share this message, and let's make a difference!

Let's work together to create a more transparent and accountable Nigeria!
