..Community wants military removed
BY ISRAEL BULUS, KADUNA
Again, terrorists have reportedly killed 10 people, some still missing and 4 injured in another fresh attacked in Langson community in Zango Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
The attacked was coming barely 3 days were Ungwan Wakili was attacked claiming 17 lives in the same Local Government Area.
The President of the Atyap Community Development Association, ACDA, Mr. Sam Achie who confirmed the incident to the PUNCH, said 10 dead bodies have been recovered while others are still missing.
The ACDA President, accused the military of complicity over the gruesome killing of Villagers in the land.
According to him the military checkpoints in the Area are not doing anything to protect them.
He explained that the attacked in the Village took place in between 3 military checkpoints but they couldn’t repel the attackers, but rather the military stop some youths from our neighbouring Villages who wanted to come and render help.
” It was unfortunate until the attackers finished their operations before the military allowed the Youths,” He decried.
” The military are sincerely not protecting us as they’re deployed. We are calling on the authority concern to remove the military from the land.
” The carnage on Atyap Communities was a deliberate attempt to disfranchise the people for voting a leader of their choice in the coming Saturday’s election.
” There are ongoing plans to disfranchised our people from participating on the Saturdays election, adding Government silence over the attacks speak volume,” he said.
The ACDA National President commended the Mopol in Langson community who where said to have repelled the attackers, even as he called on the people to continue to remain on alert to protect their communities and properties against the oppressors who are bent on taking their ancestral land.
The Council Chairman, Zango Kataf Local Government, Mr. Francis Sani, while confirming the attack, appealed to government to deploy more security to Zango Kataf Local Government Area to arrest the recurring attacks on innocent lives and property in the area.
PUNCH gathered that the attackers invaded the community at around 9pm, shot sporadically, and also looted a shop in the area before they where repelled by the Mopol.
