APC condemns Southern Kaduna killings, postpones Town Hall meeting

By Our Correspondent

The Kaduna State chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) Campaign Council has condemned the attack in Southern Kaduna where over 28 persons were killed by bandits on Sunday night. 

Describing it as shocking and unfortunate,  the Director General, Professor Muhammad Sani Bello, said the Campaign Council commiserated with  ‘’ Malagum and Sokwong communities in Kaura Local Government Area, where several people were reportedly killed.’’

According to him; " the unfortunate attack which is coming on the heels of relative peace in Kaduna state, following ariel bombardment by the Nigerian Air Force and attacks by ground troops, has thrown Kaura Area Council, Kaduna State and the entire country into mourning over the loss of lives and properties."

He said that ‘’as a mark of respect to the souls of the deceased,  and in mourning with the families of the bereaved, the Kaduna State APC Campaign Council has suspended its Town Hall Meeting which was scheduled to hold on Wednesday, 21st December, 2022.’’

‘’ Campaign Council is extending its condolence to the Kagoro traditional institution, the  good people of  Kaura Local Government Council and  Kaduna State Government, over this unfortunate incident.’’

Prof Bello  said that the Campaign Council is  praying ‘’ for the repose of the souls of the dead and we hope that the perpetrators of this dastardly act will be apprehended and brought to book soon. We equally pray for a peaceful and prosperous Kaduna state and Nigeria in general.’’

‘’The prompt response of  security agents for containing the situation from escalating into another round of crisis and bloodletting," he said.
