SOKAPU Distributes Wike’s Relief Materials to Adara IDPs Amidst Tales Of Kaduna Govt’s Neglect

By Nura Ismail, Kaduna

The Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU), Thursday, distributed various relief materials to natives of 36 Adara communities in Kachia Local Government Area (LGA) of Kaduna State. They were recently displaced by armed herdsmen.

Our correspondent reports that the items were donated by Gov Nyesom Wike of Rivers State during his campaign for the presidential primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.

The survivors took the opportunity to narrate their maltreatment in the hands of Kaduna State government.

The president of SOKAPU, Hon Jonathan Asake, who met the IDPs at the Adara town hall in Kachia town, about 150km South of Kaduna metropolis, told the IDPs, whose total numbers are estimated at 10,000, that there are people who cared much about their plight and had donated to their welfare.

He said, “I am here with my team to express our solidarity with you and to bring you goodwill from Governor Nyesom Wike of River State who came to Kaduna in April for campaigns and donated to the IDPs in the state.

“I have followed the cruelty that you have had to face in the hands of armed herdsmen and your subsequent displacements, which has also attracted the sympathy of Gov Wike.

“It is unacceptable that unarmed people will be living their normal lives just to be attacked, killed, kidnapped and the communities taken over by armed herdsmen and no one is called to book.

“But the world is watching this criminality against you and other affected communities of Southern Kaduna and by the grace of God, justice shall come one day.

“I am therefore calling on the international community, all men and women of goodwill and conscience to intervene for these poor people and come to their aid.”

The materials were handed over to leaders of the communities.

They include food items, beverages and toiletries. The materials are valued at N12.8 millions.
