Some stakeholders in Kajuru Local Government Area, Kaduna State have urged the state’s Peace Commission to prevail on Governor Nasir El-Rufai to facilitate the release of Adara leaders arrested after recent killings in the area.
The members of the peace commission led by the Chairman, Reverend Josiah Idowu-Fearon, visited the area in their push for reconciliation among the warring communities.
Both the Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN in the area, Makama Danjuma and Chairman of the local reconciliation committee Patrick Maigari, said the release of Adara community leaders would fast track reconciliation and engender confidence in the process.
Maigari said reintegration of the people for lasting peace was possible, but the first step should be the release of those in detention. Also, JNI Chairman, Kajuru local government area Sheikh Dahiru Kabir, expressed regret over recurring attacks in the area after each reconciliation meetings.
Earlier, Idowu-Fearon, said the commission would continue to play its part until peace is achieved in the state.
