Biafra agitation: El-Rufai reacts strongly to alleged killing of Igbos in Kaduna

Governor Nasir El-Rufai has assured the Igbo community of their safety in Kaduna state.

The re-assurance became pertinent, following the audio message alleging killing of Igbos in the state.

El-Rufai gave his word at a joint press conference with leadership of Igbo community in Kaduna on Friday, June 16. The Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to governor El-Rufai, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, said, “The attention of Kaduna State Government has been drawn to an inciting picture and audio message stating, that some Igbos relocating to Eastern Nigeria were ambushed and killed in Kaduna State.

“According to the audio being circulated in Igbo language, the Igbos in question were ambushed in a luxurious bus conveying them to Eastern Nigeria.

“The man behind the mischievous narrative, who also claimed to be at the scene, went further to lie, that the attackers slaught*red Igbos, including women and children and that their corpses were burnt along with the luxury bus.

“The so-called eyewitness then appealed to all Igbos residing in Kaduna and rest of the North to relocate to their states of origin, and to also avoid traveling enmass considering mass killings that awaits in the North.

“It is clear that some dark forces are bent on sowing and creating panic in our ‎communities. As you can see, we are here with the leadership of the Igbo community in Kaduna State. The story is entirely false and mischievous.

The Igbo community in Kaduna is safe, like all our communities. Nobody is being attacked and nobody is relocating in fear.

“The Kaduna State Government, under the leadership of Governor Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai, will continue to uphold and defend the right of every resident of the state to live in peace.

Our state is a safe place for all that choose to call it home.

“The government vigorously condemns the use of social media for purposes of incitement, falsehood and to cause distress to citizens.”
