Bishop Joseph Bagobiri of the Catholic Diocese of Kafanchan, Kaduna state, has advised Governor Nasril El-rufai to develop the political will to sanction those that had been fomenting crises in the state.

According to Bagobiri, there was need for the state government to address the human rights abuses in the state by bringing the perpetrators to book.

While reacting to the recent clash in southern Kaduna between suspected Fulani herdsmen and local farmers in which some villagers lost their lives and properties, he advised that the government should always address its citizens in conciliatory and persuasive manners to give them a sense of belonging in state affairs.

It will be recalled that a similar attack had occurred in late 2016 that recorded fatalities with several houses, churches, shops and cars destroyed in Jema’a, Sanga, Kaura, and Kauru Local Government Areas.
