A group under the auspices of concern Southern Kaduna Youth has donated relief materials to Goska victims of terror attack on Christmas eve, by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
About 11 people were killed on 24 and 25 Dec, 2016 when Fulani herdsmen dressed in military uniform attacked Goska community despite curfew imposed by the state government in the area.
But concerned by the plight of the affected victims, the concerned Southern Kaduna youth donated over 500 blankets, 10 bags of Rice, 20 Cartons of groundnut oil amongst other items.
Speaking during the donation, one of the contributors, Ndi Kato, expressed sadness over the way and manner the victims have been abandoned.
“The situation of this people is wearisome and disheartening. We will not relent in raising our voices to the world over the unprovoked and persistence killings of our own people,”
“The idea of supporting these victims came from few individuals who cares about the well-being of our people. They are our families we must identify with them,” Ndi said.
Ndi stressed the need for other privilege individuals,non-governmental organisation and groups to replicate the gesture to the innocent villagers.
“These are people that are very hard working but today they can’t access their farm lands. This is our land and we must protect our ancestral heritage,” Ndi declared.
One of the victims, Pastor Kadima Wakili, commended the youth for their quick response toward alleviating their suffering.
“All the crops that have been harvested has been burnt down by the Fulani terrorists,” Kadima added.
“We have buried our love ones un-prepared but we are certain that God will provide succour and we shall bounce back,” Kadima added.
