ACF Cries Out Against Killings In The North

by Achadu Gabriel, Kaduna

Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, has decried endless killings in Northern Nigeria, voicing its total disapproval, frustration and anger over the menace.

A statement by Emmanuel Yawe, who is National Publicity Secretary of the Forum, lamented the latest incident, which took place in Giwa local government of Kaduna State where 38 innocent citizens were hacked to death. 

“The ACF will like to put on record its total disapproval, frustration and anger against what appears to be endless orgy killings in Northern Nigeria. The latest incident took place in Giwa local government of Kaduna State where 38 innocent citizens were hacked to death.” 

According to the State’s Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, many houses, trucks, cars and food crops were destroyeds during the attacks.

“While the ACF joins the governor of Kaduna State and the President of Nigeria in consoling those, who suffered losses during the latest attack, we call on all the state governments and the Federal Government to show more empathy and sympathy in such grave security breaches. Nothing stops the President and a State Governor from visiting such places. 

“We sadly note that, he has never felt it necessary to do so. In fact, following his example, not one governor has done so except Governor Zulum of Borno.

“Just a few days ago, also in UBA Askira in Borno, where 10 people were killed and uncountable numbers taken away; the people affected by these savage attacks are thus left to think that their lives don’t count.

“The President and the northern governors are unwittingly creating the impression that only their lives, those of their immediate family members and their offices matter. “The ACF believes the President and the northern governors have the capacity to do better than this,” it stated.
