No fewer than 3,000 people were displaced by the recent attacks on some communities by gunmen in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State, the Council Chairman, Mr Cafra Caino has said.

Addressing a news conference in Kajuru on Friday, Caino said that steps have been taken to address the incessant attacks and wanton killings by hoodlums and criminals in the area.

He said that the local government held a stakeholders Security Summit on Thursday, attended by sons and daughters of the council to find lasting solution to the bloody crises affecting the area.

The council chairman said that the people, including the Adara, Hausa and the Fulanis, in a communique issued after the summit, noted that there was the need for continuous consultations with stakeholders for lasting peace.

“The people, who agreed to live in peace and harmony with one another, also noted the need for more security intelligence gathering in the area. They have also agreed that a truth and reconciliation committee be established to receive memorandum from all the people living in the LGA on what is causing the crises and the way forward.

“The people equally took a collective step to ensure seize fire in all communities affected in the crises and called on the state government to ensure equity and fairness to all people in the LGA.

“They equally resolved that incessant killings and burning of houses and properties must be stopped, and to also hold quarterly stakeholder’s security meetings as mitigation measures.”

According to Caino, the use of social media to send fake news about the crises also aggravated the crises rather than helping to restore peace in the area.
