The Kaduna State Commissioner of Police Ahmad Abdurrahman has

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

prosecute suspects.
