The Kaduna State Police Command on Friday said 55 people were killed in Thursday’s communal crisis at Kasuwan Magani in Kajuru Local Government Area of the state.

The State Commissioner of Police, Ahmad Abdur-Rahman, who disclosed this at a press briefing in Kaduna, said that the police had arrested 22 suspects in connection with the mayhem.

The Kaduna State Government on Thursday declared a 24-hour curfew on the community following the violence.

Mr Abdur-Rahman said mobile and conventional policemen as well as a team of the state joint security Operation Yaki, dispatched to the town had restored normalcy in the area.

According to him, he has also visited the town and engaged youth leaders, traditional and religious leaders in the efforts to stop the crisis and prevent its spread

He noted that the timely imposition of curfew by the Kaduna State Government also helped to douse tension in the area.

The police chief assured that all perpetrators of the mayhem would be brought to book

“Anybody that has a hand in this crisis must face the full wrath of law, we will not allow lawlessness; we remain committed to saving life and property of every citizens,” he said.

He appealed to the public to continue to live in peace, and assist the command with useful information to track the perpetrators.

Also on Friday, residents of Kasuwan Magani were charged to shun violence and learn to live in peace.

Governor Nasir El-Rufai gave this admonition on Friday when he visited the community following violent clashes between rival youth groups there on Thursday.

Mr El-Rufai assured residents that the government will prosecute those responsible for the violence in their community.

The governor led a team of senior government officials to Kasuwan Magani around 4 p.m. and immediately received briefings from Mr Abdur-rahaman.

He thereafter moved around the town, accompanied by traditional and religious leaders.

 Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry, please respect the dead, how can they pile them up like trash, if this is the way they treat ordinary people then we don't have value, the value of a society is measured by how the ordinary people are treated, so our leaders one day can be piled up like trash.

All this killings won't stop until we start telling ourselves the truth. This forced union must be renegotiated or everyone should go their separate ways.
