One week after more than 200 people were massacred in the violence-prone southern Kaduna area of Kaduna State, Governor Mukhtar Ramalan Yero is yet to visit the scene and reassure the besieged inhabitants. Instead, critics accused the governor of spending his time politicking.
Last week, more than two hundred inhabitants of the area, most of them children, women and the elderly were killed in Sanga local government area of Kaduna State. Security sources blamed herdsmen for the savage attacks.
Bitrus Yohanna, a US-based student who hails from the troubled area and arrived there last Monday, told SaharaReporters he witnessed a shocking level of death and devastation. He added that members of his community were dismayed that Governor Yero had failed to visit the villages where the mass killings took place.
