Against the relative peace being enjoyed by most of our communities, I received the sad news of the attack in Malagum 1 and Sokwong communities in Kagoro chiefdom, Kaura Local government area of Kaduna state.
It is disheartening and reprehensible that such senseless act could still be found among us. This is totally condemnable and should have no place among civilized people like us.
I extend my heartfelt condolence to the chief of Kagoro, the families of the victims of the attack and the entire people of Kaura LGA.
As a mark of respect to the faithfully departed, the injured and those grieving, the town hall meetings scheduled to start in Kaduna South Senatorial District on Tuesday, 20th December 2022, have been suspended. Also, all the PDP party offices in Kaduna South Senatorial District have been advised to fly their flags at half-mast as a mark of respect to those that have been affected by this incident.
It is my sincere hope that as we work together to install a new government at the state and Federal levels by the special grace of God, we would be able to collaborate and develop strategies that would curtail future incidents.
While I pray for quick healing and comfort to the injured, I once again extend my sincere condolences to all those that have been affected by this incident.
Rt. Hon. Isa Mohammed Ashiru
