The Sanga Development Association, SDA, in Sanga local government area of Kaduna State, has called on the state government to immediately uncover and bring to book, the killers of their paramount ruler, Etum Numana, Dr Gambo Makama and his wife.

A statement signed by SDA Secretary, Mr Agony Jetty, described the killing of the paramount traditional ruler, who is also the Chairman, Sanga Traditional Council, by suspected Fulani herdsmen as unacceptable.

The group said it has again been thrown into great mourning on the eve of New Year and cannot explain the rationale behind all the unprovoked attacks and killings, but added that a time had come when an end must be put to all the killings if government and her security apparatus were serious.

“We demand that Kaduna State Government under Mallam Nasir el-Rufa’i should use all machinery at her disposal and the security agencies to uncover the perpetrators of this dastard act and bring them to book.

“It is on record that after the systematic genocide that was targeted on various of our communities in Sanga Local Government Area from June 2014 where the aged, women, children and all categories of people were massacred, the Fulani killers under the umbrella of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) then turned around and fingered out some of our traditional rulers demanding for their dethronement and prosecution.

“This was simply unthinkable! Two key Traditional Rulers were targeted by MACBAN in two separate petitions dated 12th June, 2014 and 1st August, 2014 which they wrote and were jointly signed by its Sanga Chairman – Alh. Alhassan Abdulkarim and Pro-tem Secretary, Musa Abdullahi Badembo, and the other jointly signed by Southern Kaduna Zonal Chairman – Alh. Haruna Usman, Chairman Jama’a LGA – Alh. Abdulhamid Musa and Chairman Sanga LGA respectively.
