The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, deputy gubenatorial candidate in
the just concluded governorship election in Kaduna State, Hon. Sunday Marshall Katung has said the attacks and crisis in Kaduna communities are becoming one too many to bear.
He stated this in a statement made available to the media in Kaduna yesterday.
According to the statement, Hon. Katung said his attention has once again been drawn to an ongoing ethnocentric crisis in communities of Kajuru local government area and the gunmen attacks on Nandu Gbok, a community in Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna State, saying these attacks/crisis are becoming too many.
He added that he is greatly disturbed at the scale and magnitude of destruction of lives and property that has been going on unabated with very little action by the government.
“When the crises broke out about in Kajuru about three weeks ago, we expressed sadness at the comments of our State Government, warning that it could trigger a circle of violence.
“For as long as government does not treat it’s citizens with justice, equity and fairness, this unfortunate situation will continue.
“While I sympathize with all grieving families, friends and relations, let me use this opportunity to call on all citizens to eschew violence and embrace peace.
May God grant strength and fortitude to those that have lost loved ones,” he said.
