Demolition threat: Gonin-Gora residents are peace lovers – community

By - - [General ]

Residents of Gonin-Gora community in Chikun local government area of Kaduna State have expressed surprises over the recent statement credited to Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai over threat to demolish and evacuate the community if the youths in the area continue to attack motorists plying the route during crisis.

El-rufai had during an Hausa radio program recently threatened to evacuate and relocate Gonin-Gora, a community if the youths in the area further attempt to block Kaduna-Abuja high way and attack innocent travelers.

Addressing newsmen at the palace of the late Sarkin Gonin Gora on behalf of the leaders and elders of Gonin-Gora and environs, Mr. Simon Bijeh who read the text of the briefing said, Gonin Gora residents are peaceful adding that, the governor’s pronouncement is an attempt to give dog a bad name to hang it.

The text of the briefing jointly signed by Alhaji Baba Ali (Dallatun Gonin Gora), John Auta (Ciroman 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.

“Indeed, all these false allegations and rumours are not new or strange news to the people of Gonin-Gora as this has always been the case whenever trouble is in the offing or had started in any part of Kaduna town.

“What transpired in reality is that through-out the violent clash on the 18th October, 2018 at Kasuwan Magani and its subsequent spill-over to places like Kujama, Mararaban Rido and Sabon-Tasha on 20th, 21st and 22nd respectively, Gonin-Gora and its environs remained calm and peaceful.

“It is in the context of these realities that we in Gonin-Gora are baffled and shocked by the reported threats of His Excellency Governor Nasir El-Rufai to demolish and or evacuate the Gonin-Gora settlement on account of violence to and molestation of travelers which, to the best of our knowledge never ever occurred during this crisis.”

“We are sure that it is either that the governor has been misinformed or ill-advised by people hell-bent on giving Gonin-Gora a bad and gory name in order to hang it”, he stated.
