The communities in Southern Kaduna are ready to dialogue and live in peace with any group or groups of persons in the area.
This was disclosed by the Chief of Kagoro Mr. Ufuwai Bonet,
in Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna state, saying Southern part of the state is open to dialogue with Fulani people and any warring faction towards ensuring permanent peace in his Chiefdom.
“We are ready for any group of people that have any grievances with us to come forward for us to discuss at a roundtable to resolve our differences amicably or we invite the government to resolve any problem affecting our peaceful coexistence,” he said
Recall that Kagoro Chiefdom and some communities in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area recently experienced attacks by gunmen which led to the killing of persons, burning of houses, and destruction of properties worth millions of Naira in region.
While speaking during the Kagoro Chiefdom prayer and peace summit in collaboration with Global Peace Foundation Nigeria on Sunday in Kagoro, Chief Afuwai Bonet said, “for the past two years, the Chiefdom has witnessed attacks by gunmen and all that we hear as the causes of the attacks are mere rumors without any real reason for the attacks resulting to the killings of innocent people and the destruction properties worth millions of Naira.”
But for years the Kagoro people have been living peacefully with people of other ethnic groups and religions without any problem, adding that the present attacks were so strange to the people that they do not know what could be the problems causing the attacks.
He therefore called on all to evolve ways that could usher harmonious relationships that the area is known with in the past, saying that it is the only way that people could go about their legitimate businesses.
