Southern Kaduna youths protest killings, kidnappings, say ‘el-Rufai sleeping’

Tired and frustrated with the spate of killings and kidnappings in Kaduna State, youths from the southern part of the state, on Saturday morning, protest the worsening security under the watch of the governor and chief security officer of the state, Nasir el-Rufai.

According to the youths, who gathered at the Unity Fountain in Abuja, under the aegis of the Southern Kaduna People’s Union, the insecurity in the North-West state was becoming alarming. The youths, therefore, demanded that the security forces, as well as government at all levels, must rise up quickly from their deep slumber.

To drive home their points that the insecurity in Kaduna has become unbearable, the youths carried placards with different inscriptions emblazoned on them.

One of the youths Jane Thomas-Rogers, who spoke with newsmen said the governor must rise up to his responsibility and secure the people. She stated that before now, kidnapping was an occurrence on Abuja road but right now, it has moved to Southern Kaduna and they no longer feel safe. 

They youths also called the attention of the international community and all Nigerians to the situation, saying that the Kaduna government is sleeping and something must be done.
