El-Rufai Lied, Kigam-Chawai And Dudun Attacks Not Communal, But Fulani Herdsmen Terrorism

By Steven Kefason

The general public must as a matter of urgency disregard the lies from the pit of hell been peddled by Samaila Aruwan the media aid to Governor Nasiru Elrufai that the attacks that claimed over 23 lives in Kigam and Dudun communities in Kaduna and Plateau states respectively were communal clashes.

Findings from members of the community in Kigam-Chawai revealed that the attacks were not communal clashes as stated by the spokesman but a full-scale Fulani terrorists attack. The attacks took place simultaneously in both Kigam-Chawai and Dudun community in Bassa LGA of Plateau state which is less than a kilometre apart, the communities over the years have merged with no visible boundary and are living as brothers and sisters despite them being from two different states (Kaduna and Plateau). During the attack, over 23 persons were said to have been killed by the Fulani terrorists with 3 being from Kigam-Chawai and over 20 from Dudun in Bassa LGA of Plateau state. An ECWA church pastorium and a Catholic Church were burnt alongside 25 houses in Kigam-Chawai, Kauru LG while dozens of houses were also burnt down in Dudun community.

I, therefore, call on all Nigerians to disregard the falsehood being spread by Samaila Aruwan who is only doing the bidding of his principal the governor who is known for always trying to twist facts with regards to the Fulani terrorist atrocities. It will be recalled that in February 2017 after a terrorist attack in Bakin Kogi, the state commissioner of police went on air to downplay the casualty figures and properties destroyed, he claimed only 3 houses were burnt but during my visit to the community I counted over 150 burnt houses.

It will also be recalled that Governor Elrufai during an interview on channels TV confessed to paying the Fulani terrorists responsible for these mindless attacks compensation to stop the killings, yet the killings have persisted.
