The Middle Belt Forum’s National President of the Middle Belt Forum, Dr Bitrus Porgu, in i an interview with PUNCH in Jos, said what was happening in Southern Kaduna was genocide against the people by the Fulani ethnic militias.
Pogu said “If the killings were politically motivated, let him (the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) name the politicians fuelling the killings in Southern Kaduna. As the Chief Security Officer of the country and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. What stops him from going after those politicians?
“Besides, if it is a revenge killing, then who is revenging what? The Southern Kaduna natives are always on the receiving end. They are attacked unprovoked and these attacks have continued unabated. Remember what the Miyetti Allah Association used to say; that their cattle were rustled in the past and they used it as an excuse to kill our people. But now, no cattle are being rustled and yet, the people are killed on a daily basis.”
