The women wing of Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU) has disclosed that 27 women, girls and four boys have been kidnapped by bandits in the area and appealed to the Governor Uba Sani to ensure their rescue.
SOKAPU national women coordinator, Mrs Jemutu Katarma, in a statement made available to newsmen, said several villages in Southern Kaduna had been sacked and some taken over by bandits with many residents displaced.
She said, “May I use this opportunity to warmly greet the governor of Kaduna State, Uba Sani and his deputy, our dear sister, Dr. Sabuwa Hadiza Balarabe and express our goodwill to them on behalf of the entire women of Southern Kaduna.”
“After closely observing the policies, words and actions of Governor Uba Sani since he came to power in May 2 023, we have good reasons to believe that he has come to restore hope, confidence and unity to the state. We also see him working with the Federal Government in helping to solve the serious challenge on the security of lives and property of citizens of Kaduna state.”
“It is based on this belief that we are encouraged to use this medium to send him an SOS message on very disturbing security matters, part which he inherited, and to plead for his urgent intervention. As you may all be aware by now, Southern Kaduna is made up of the eight local government areas of Kaduna South Senatorial Zone, plus Lere LGA in Kaduna North Senatorial Zone including Kajuru and Chikun LGAs in Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone,” she stated.
The women said of these 12 LGAs of Southern Kaduna, only about three have not suffered violence and crimes from armed groups, especially bandits and armed herdsmen, as thousands have been killed, houses burnt and hundreds have been kidnapped.
“Hundreds of our villages have been sacked and some taken over by bandits. Even the immediate past government of the state has been reporting these atrocities to the press every quarter each year. Our people, especially women and children in their thousands are rendered as IDPs. It is usually women and children that suffer the most during such displacements,” she said.
