The Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai has commended Zauru community in Zangon Kataf local government for rescuing 30 persons who were attacked by hoodlums.
The Governor’s spokesman, Samuel Aruwan, disclosed this in a statement issued in Kaduna. The Zauro community in Bajju Chiefdom had on Wednesday resisted a group of hoodlums who stormed their community with intent of attacking some settlements.
The community, apart from resisting the hoodlums, also alerted security agencies who were able to evacuate 30 persons, mostly children, women and the aged to Kafanchan.
The statement quoted the governor as saying:
“I received the news with joy. The action taken by Zauru 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 Zauru, and uphold each other.
“This gesture is significant. It reinforces our confidence that ordinary citizens, living together and promoting harmony, are the best guarantee of sustainable peace. I hereby commend the entire Zauru community for this act. Their exemplary conduct should gladden everyone involved in the quest for peace.”
