assured all communities in Kajuru Local Government of equal treatment
and protection in spite of recent killings in the area.
Abdurrahman who met with newsmen in Kaduna for update on the
security situation in the area, said the police command was conducting
thorough investigation on the crisis.
He explained that the killing of scores of Fulanis in the area was a
retaliatory attack after suspected Fulani gunmen had killed some locals
of Adara tribe.
He disclosed that the police had made arrest of suspects on both sides
and is conducting “balanced investigation” to bring perpetrators of the
two attacks to book.
The commissioner refused to be drawn into the actual number of deaths,
saying its difficult to get the exact number of people killed in the second
attack because of the terrain.
Abdurrahman urged the media to be part of efforts to finding lasting
solutions to the recurring communal conflicts in the local government,
assuring that the police would continue to quench the fire, arrest and
