The Southern Kaduna Peoples Union, SOKAPU, has condemned in strong term the destruction of the foundation laying structure of a proposed military barrack near Kafachan.
A statement signed by SOKAPU National Public Relations Officer, Mr. Kakubu Kuzamani, noted that the attention of the Union has been drawn to a statement from the Kaduna State Government on the destruction of the foundation laying structure of a proposed military barrack near Kafanchan.
The statement reads:
“SOKAPU totally condemns the vandalisation of the structure in very strong terms. As an organization that has been vigorously pursuing an increased presence of the military in an area deliberately neglected and abandoned for a long time, we totally frown at such acts of recklessness.
“SOKAPU will not support any acts that could break the law and will continue to call on all Southern Kaduna people, irrespective of ethnic, religious or political affiliations, to abide by the laws of the lands and never to break the laws.
“SOKAPU stands on its quest for justice and fairness, anchored on the peaceful approach to all solution bedeviling our region and would not stand aloof and watch such acts being truncated by anyone.
“With the one-sided speed that some in Southern Kaduna are being arrested and paraded as the ‘masterminds’ of the genocidal killings in Southern Kaduna, we urge the security agencies to ensure they get the right suspects and not some innocent people picked at random and later paraded without due investigation.
“We still reiterate our stand as a peaceful organization, speaking for the peace-loving people of Southern Kaduna, irrespective of tribe or religion and would not stand and allow acts that could embolden our aggressors and their supporters to wrongly and mischievously continue to allude to some personality in Southern Kaduna as crisis entrepreneurs.”
