Arewa Consultative Forum Cries Out Against Killings In The North


The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) says it totally disapproves, remains frustrated and is angry over what appears to be an endless killing in Northern Nigeria.

In a statement by the ACF spokesperson, Emmanuel Yawe, oN Monday, the group said it is outrageous that those elected to govern the people have not deemed it fit to visit the places where citizens were brutally murdered.

Recently, 38 persons were hacked to death in Giwa Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

According to Samuel Aruwan, the State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, many houses, trucks, cars and food crops were also destroyed during the attacks.

Reacting to the incident, the ACF while joining the Governor of Kaduna and the President of Nigeria in consoling those who suffered losses during the latest attack, called on all the state governments and the Federal Government to show more empathy and sympathy in such grave security breaches.

“Nothing stops the President and a State governor from visiting such places.

“We sadly note that he has never felt it necessary to do so. In fact, following his example, not one governor has done so except Governor Zulum of Borno,” the ACF stated.

According to the ACF, those affected by the savage attacks within the region are often left to think that their lives don’t count.

“The President and the northern governors are unwittingly creating the impression that only their lives, those of their immediate family members and their offices matter,” the group further noted.

The ACF said it believes that the president and the northern governors have the capacity to do better than is currently being done.
