There’s a fresh report of killings in Kaduna and Nigerians have a lot to say about it


Nigeria projects itself as a country that prides itself on the freedom of worship – three major religious groups thrive under this idea; Christianity, Islam, and the African Traditional Religion (with a long chain of other subgroups and sects). With these known facts, it is safe to say that Nigeria can be reasonably considered as a safe haven for diversity in ethnic and religious beliefs, however, that may not be the case.

Over the years, there have been a large number of reported cases of killings, gruesome attacks, and bloodshed that are backed up by a certain belief attached to religion, especially in the North. For a lot of Nigerians, this chaos currently on headlines is tied to some religious backing; considering the advent of terrorist group, Boko Haram.

Kaduna is again in the spotlight after a report shows the gruesome attack on a community by an alleged militia claimed the lives of over 15 persons. From the report, it was also gathered that about 31 persons also sustained various degrees of injuries after the gunmen stormed a village at about 10:30 pm during a wedding after-party late Sunday, opening fire on the guests.

As expected, social media turned red on this update as many expressed their minds on the state of things in Southern Kaduna, noting that this will be the second major attack in that region within the space of three months.

It is not unusual to have terrorists claim responsibility for attacks, stating their reason for doing so, as we’ve seen with Boko Haram, however, with these fresh reports about Kaduna, many Nigerians are speculating that these attacks may be a Genocide.

While there are no official explanations on the attack yet, Nigerians are calling on the Kaduna Government to do better in improving the level of security in the state.
