Hundreds of protesting women, some half naked barricaded the Jema’a Local Government Secretariat to protest against the killing of a youth by soldiers who also injured other people around Garaje in Kafanchan. The youths who were protesting against Fulani killings were shot at and brutalized by soldiers who forcefully dispersed them but unfortunately, a youth was killed in the process.
Kaduna State Governor, Nasir EL-rufai visited Kafanchan and was reportedly displeased by the wanton destruction of properties by the protesting youths. He warned the youths to keep calm and let the security agencies do their job instead of taking the law into their hands.
The Jema’a Local Government Chairman, Dr. Bege Kakuta subsequently imposed curfew in Kafanchan in order to prevent further breakdown of law and order.
