Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has commended the people of Zauru community in Zango Kataf Local Government Area of the state for resisting Midweek attack of hoodlums.
The governor’s media aide, Samuel Aruwan, in a released statement, disclosed that no fewer than 30 persons escaped death due to the bold action of the community.
The invasion came barely three days after the renewed attacks that claimed 21 lives, an incident that almost led to burning of houses by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
According to the latest reports, the people of Zauru community, apart from resisting the hoodlums, also alerted security agencies who were able to evacuate 30 persons, mostly children, women as well as aged men to Kafanchan town, Jema’a Local Government Area of the state.
Governor El-Rufai commended Zauru community for rescuing the 30 persons attacked by the hoodlums. The statement reads: “The Zauro community in Bajju Chiefdom had on Wednesday resisted a group of hoodlums who stormed their community with intent of attacking some settlements”.
“I received the news with joy. The action taken by Zauro community to protect their neighbours is laudable. This is a bold step for peace and harmony. It testifies to the fact that there are people who do their utmost for a common humanity. All our communities should emulate Zauro, and uphold each other,” he added.
