Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has asked security agencies in the state to arrest the killers of a 12-year-old herder, Usman Abdullahi.
Abdullahi was reportedly killed by yet-to-identified persons at Sabzuro-Tunga, Nok Road in Jaba Local Government Area of the state.
The Governor, meanwhile, commended Fulani and Ham leaders in Jaba for de-escalating tension and keeping the peace after the incident.
The Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs in Kaduna, Samuel Aruwan, gave the commendation on behalf of the governor on Saturday during a peace advocacy engagement between leaders of both ethnic groups at Ungwan Tunga in Nok District.
Aruwan, who visited the parents of the deceased at their settlement in company with the District Head of Nok, Fulani leaders, security officials, and Jaba LGA Chairman, commiserated with them over the unfortunate incident.
He informed the parents of the deceased that effort was ongoing by the security agencies to apprehend those behind the klling of their son.
The commissioner also commended them for not taking the law in their hands but chose to report the matter to the appropriate authorities.
Usman’s father, Abdullahi Wakili, who spoke in Hausa, thanked the government delegation for the visit.
He also assured them of absolute recourse to the law, hence their cooperation with security personnel investigating the case.
Wakili said, “All I know is that despite all that happened, I leave everything for God. I know that security operatives are doing their best. I pray that God will help them during their investigation to find the culprit.
“I also thank His Excellency, the governor of Kaduna State for his support. May God lead you all back to your various destinations safely.”
