• Supports Establishment Of Operation Amotekun In Southwest
The Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU) has called attention of government and the international community to the continuous siege and violent attacks on Southern Kaduna communities by armed militia.

The union said the attacks, believed to be from “Fulani herdsmen” have gone from bad to worse.

They lauded the Southwest governors’ launch of Operation Amotekun to combat insecurity, urging other regions to follow suit.

A statement by Luka Binniyat, the union’s National Public Relations Officer, recalled several attacks on the axis, saying: “On the 6th of this month, we informed the world of the impunity with which armed militiamen sacked several Gbagyi communities in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, forcing residents to flee their homes into exile in neighbouring Niger State.
