A wing of Southern Kaduna Muslim Ummah Development Association and Muslim Youth Foundation have enjoined all Muslim youths in the area to subscribe to peaceful coexistence.
In a communique signed by the National Chairman, Kabiru Muhammed suggests surveillance activities by stakeholders in every community to nip in the bud any attempt aimed at a breakdown of law and order.
It also calls on the government to Implement the recommendations of inquiries of all crises since the 80s to date and those indicted should be prosecuted regardless of their status.
It calls on Muslim Groups and Associations in Southern Kaduna to intensify efforts to ensure mutual understanding and cooperation among the peoples of southern Kaduna particularly, calling on all and sundry to subscribe to peaceful co-existence.
“We agreed that to ensure the return of lasting peace and peaceful co-existence among all tribal communities in the area, various people of southern Kaduna should appreciate their differences and respect each other by avoiding inflammatory speeches or actions that often trigger conflicts”.
“In the event of any dispute or security threat, the people concerned should not take the law into their hands, but report any breach of peace to relevant security agencies”.
He also advised government to ensure that all Muslims who were displaced and rendered homeless out of their places of birth and abode such as in Matsirga, Gidan-Maga, Tsakiya, Zonkwa, and Unguwan-Rimi Bajju among others are adequately compensated and returned to their homes. And farmland since their displacements taken away by their traducers are returned to them as means of survival.
The communique appeals to Media Houses, including NGOs to always verify their facts from all contending sides to a conflict among the communities and ensure balanced reportage on sensitive issues to avoid one-sided and skewed narratives, capable of worsening any volatile situation.
The Communique was issued by Adamu Yusuf in Kaduna.
