Half-Unclad Women Protest Against Herdsmen Attacks In Kaduna

Half-Unclad women on Tuesday
protested over alleged night
attacks by herdsmen on Ninte
village in Godogodo Chiefdom of
Jema’a Local Government,
Kaduna State. The women from Ninte and
surrounding villages staged the
protest at the palace of the Chief
of Godogodo.
The women demanded
government intervention to stop the alleged increasing cases of
night killings, rape, burning of
houses by some assailants in the
area.
Spokesperson of the protesters,
Mrs. Deborah Reuben, accused the government of insensitivity
to their plight since the incident
started in May.
“The situation is unhealthy as it
is no longer safe.
“The government we voted into power has left us at the mercy of
armed herdsmen, farms cannot
be cultivated in the face of high
level of impunity,” she lamented.
Responding, the Chief of
Godogodo, Malam Iliya Ajiya appealed to the protesting
women to remain calm as
everything possible was being
done to bring the situation
under control.
When contacted, the Interim Chairman of Jema’a local council,
Dr. Bege Katukah confirmed to
NAN in a telephone interview
that security men had been
mobilised to the affected
community. NAN learnt that residents of the
affected villages have been
relocating to Godogodo, Antang
and Gidan Waya, for their safety.
