Against the backdrop of incessant killings in the southern part of Kaduna state, youths in the area have staged a peaceful protest to draw attention to their plight.
The protest was staged on Monday morning in Kafanchan towards having a speedy and lasting solution to the killings.
The spokesman of the youths, Mr Nathan Chaweson, said the killing continued even with the presence of security operatives at flashpoints of the state.
Chaweson called on the government to ensure the security of the people and bring perpetrators to book to serve as deterrent.
“We are pushed to the wall to question the government in what has been happening,” he said.
The youths who turned out in their numbers carried leaves and placards with varying inscriptions, chanting “we no go gree” slogan.
The Kaduna State House of Assembly had in October constituted a fact-finding committee to immediately ascertain and report back to the House the incessant attacks on the people of Southern Kaduna by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
The committee was mandated to give the House a clear picture of the security situation in the area with a view of finding a lasting solution to the unabated loss of lives and property.
