The National Association of Seadogs (Pyrates Confraternity) is extremely concerned about the resurgence of killings in Southern Kaduna. Kaura, Zango-Kataf, Kajuru and Jema'a local government areas of Kaduna state have continued to witness an orgy of killings in the past few weeks that has left people traumatized.
It is worrisome that despite the imposition of a 24-hour curfew and deployment of security agencies to the troubled area, rather than stem the tide of killings it has done the opposite. Suspected Fulani militia beat military checkpoints and in one fell swoop, killed 33 people in some villages in Zango-Kataf Local Government Area. The inability of the security agencies to stop the reign of terror has fuelled allegations of genocide against Christians in the area.
