The Gonin-Gora community of Chikun local government area of Kaduna State has expressed surprise over the recent statement credited to Kaduna State governor, Malam Nasir el-Rufai over threat to demolish and evacuate the community if the youths of the area don’t desist from attacking motorists that ply the route during crisis situations.
It would be recalled that the governor during an Hausa radio programme recently threatened to evacuate and relocate Gonin-Gora, a community with well over 300,000 residents if the youths in the area further attempt to block Kaduna-Abuja high way and attack innocent travelers.
The alleged threat by the governor generated lots of controversies as to why the governor had to narrow down the threat to only Gonin-Gora community as volatile area at the wake of any crisis in the state and exonerated other volatile communities like Tudun Wada, Mararaban Jos, Rigasa and Kabala West.
Meanwhile, addressing newsmen at the palace of the late Sarkin Gonin Gora on behalf of the leaders and elders of Gonin-Gora and environs, the Sarkin Yaki Gora said, Mr Simon Bijeh who read the text of the briefing said, Gonin Gora residents are peaceful, adding that the governor’s pronouncement must be an atempt to give a dog a bad name in order to hang it.
The text of the briefing jointly signed by Alhaji Baba Ali (Dallatun Gonin Gora), John Auta (aCiroman Gonin Gora) Sule Fulani (Wakilin Fulani) and Zakka Auta (Wakilin Atyap) said, “It is unfortunate that while the communal clash was going on at Kasuwan Magani and later spilled over to Kujama, Mararaban Rido and Sabon – Tasha, rumours were already being peddled inside Kaduna and certain areas of the town that killings, mounting of roadblocks and attacks of innocent motorists as well as kidnapping of passersby was going on unabated in Gonin-Gora.
