The Adara Development Association, ADA, in Kaduna State has cried out over killing and kidnapping of their indigenes by bandits. The association said no fewer than 107 persons have been killed, 49 injured, about 66 persons kidnapped, 111 houses burnt, 32 villages destroyed and about 20,000 displaced from January, this year to date in Adara community.
A statement issued and made available in Kaduna State on Friday by the ADA National President, Awemi Dio Maisamari, explained that, “It is indeed very sad but not surprising that the terrorist/jihadist war on Adara nation has continued ferociously in the year 2020.
Within the period, from January 2020, there have been 63 terrorist attack and kidnapping incidents, more than 107 people killed, about 49 persons injured, more than 66 men/women/girls abducted for ransom, more than 111 houses burnt, another whole 32 villages destroyed and 20,000 persons displaced (especially in the last two weeks).”
He further explained that there have been continuous attacks by unknown gunmen from Monday to Thursday in some villages resulting in the killing of 20 persons.
He added, “We simply lack the words to properly describe the atmosphere of anarchy and despair that is fast taking root in our communities with women, children, the sick and the elderly fleeing with the little belongings they can salvage.
“There are abundant facts to show that Fulani terrorists have for long been on the offensive in Adara land just as they have been nationwide. We have a detailed (though incomplete) chronicle of Fulani terrorist activities in Adara land.”
“We have since realized that the usual silence of government when most of these atrocities are being committed actually means consent.” he revealed.
