Group raises alarm over roadblocks killing of Muslims

The Muslim Youth Foundation of Southern Kaduna (MYFOSKA) over the weekend alleged that several of their members who are either on transit or in the process of carrying out their legitimate business in parts of Southern Kaduna have been killed.

CRIMECHANNELS reports that part of Southern Kaduna have seen so many attacks and killings by gunmen, as well as counter attacks between farmers and fulani herdsmen.

It could be recalled that the latest attack on Zikpak, in Southern Kaduna led to the killing of nine people in Jema’a local government by unknown assailants.

However, a statement issued by MYFOSKA and signed by its National Chairman, Mohammed Kabir Bello, stated that Muslims have found themselves in the middle of a guerrilla attack and silent killings in different parts of Southern Kaduna.

“Whenever there is a rumour of any form of attack in the area, the Muslims become victims, roadblocks will be mounted and any Muslim on transit will be killed,” he said.

The group said five people were ambushed and killed in July including the former Secretary to the District Head of Dangoma, Sallau Musa, who was killed while on transit from Kafanchan to Dangoma on July 22, 2020.

“This brings the total number of more than 100 people killed while on transit since 2016,” the group said.
