From Sola Ojo, Kafanchan
WHILE security apparatuses are still battling the of incessant bloody attacks on Southern Part of Kaduna State, Troops deployed to the Southern part of Kaduna State have intercepted men in possession of cache of live ammunition in Kagoma Chiefdom area of the state.
The General Office, were Commanding 1 Mechanized Division of the Nigerian Army, Major General Adeniyi Oyebade, who made the disclosure also directed immediate deployment of troops in Ninte, Jema’a Local Government Area of the state, a community that has been ravaged with renewed attacks.
The ammunition was discovered when two middle-aged men, who were driving in a maroon coloured volkswagen vehicle through the front of the Sarkin Kagoma’s palace were flagged down but declined to stop.
Luck, however, ran out on them when Major General Adeniyi Oyebade, amid the troops, who were just coming out of a palace after peace talks with the elders to address the killings, arrested and whisked them away to the military camp in Kafanchan for further questioning.
This development led to their suspicion and interrogated by soldiers on watch On the the deployment of troops on Ninte, the GOC gave the directive during a meeting with youths of Kagoma Chiefdom.
The Pop Gwong of Kagoma Chiefdom, Paul Zakka Gyon who attended the meeting said that the recent attacks have connection with the inability of the natives displaced from Ninte to return home.
There had also been an allegation that Fulani herdsmen have taken over Ninte village and grazing their cattle on the natives’ farm after the first attack in June 2016.
Daly Sun gathered that it was as a result of this that, General Oyebade directed the troops commander in charge of the area, Lt. Colonel Bello to deploy troops on Ninte within 24 hours.
While assuring that the Army troops were on ground to restore peace to the area without taking side, Oyebade appealed to both the Fulani communities and locals not to cause religious crisis, which is capable of consuming everyone.
He warned the youths in particular not to allow anyone, especially politicians use them to achieve their political agenda by causing crisis, at the detriment of their own future.
Meanwhile, normalcy has, however, returned to Kafanchan and Goska, that lost no fewer than ten lives after the bloody coordinated attacks on the eve of Christmas and on Christmas Day.
