Despite the assurances by the Inspector General of Police that a batch of police officers have been posted to Kaduna South and the imposition of a 24 hour curfew by the State Governor, suspected Fulani militia group attacked Kurmin Masara community in Zango Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State in the early hours of Thursday killing 20 people.
Many houses are said to have been burnt down by the attackers during the incident and the area is very troubled.
The Kaduna State Government announced a 24-hour curfew in the affected local government area in June this year in order to curb the menace of hoodlums but despite the move, killings have continued in the region.
The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) had warned the Federal Government that Kaduna South which is predominantly a Christian area may result into self defense if the unwarranted attacks prevail.
But the Kaduna State Governor, Nasril El-Rufai said the challenge is that the killings were politically motivated and filled with revenge missions so he met with security chiefs in the state and the new measure seems to be faulty.
The Kaduna police or the army is yet to come up with arrests as they never did before neither have they made comments.
Several Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO) have petitioned the United Nations and the ICC at the Hague over consistent Kaduna killings over five years now.
