El-Rufai Condemns Lynching Of Two Herders In Kaduna

Kaduna Governor Malam Nasir El-Rufa’i has condemned the killing of two herders by a mob in Birnin Gwari local government area.

He directed investigations into the incident with a view to fishing out the culprits and make them face the full wrath of the law.

A statement by the Commissioner Internal Security and Home Affairs Samuel Aruwan said security agencies reported that the mob forcefully seized the two herders from security personnel, on unsubstantiated claims that they were linked with banditry. The mob then lynched and burnt the herders, even though they had not been found complicit of the allegations.

“The Governor has also directed the Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs to liaise with the military, police and DSS to contact the victims’ families for further engagements toward averting counter-attacks.
