Kajuru people seek release of their leaders in prison custody
The aggrieved people of Kajuru, under the umbrella of Adara Development Association (ADA), have demanded for the release of their community leaders who were arrested and remanded in prison custody.
In a statement signed yesterday by the National Assistant Secretary of ADA, Luka Waziri, he said: “Today (Monday) makes it almost 31 days that our leaders, elders and chiefs of the Adara nation were indiscriminately arrested in a blatant, injurious and a one-sided reckless abuse of state power never envisaged under a democratic government in Kaduna State.
“The unfortunate crisis that erupted in Kajuru Local Council provided an opportunity for statesmanlike conduct to flourish from the consciousness of those with the responsibility of dispensing not just justice but good governance. What we got instead was an aberration.
“Our leaders were arrested, locked up in police cells and later transferred to the Kaduna Prison under bogus and ludicrous charges.”
“Despite six attacks on different Adara villages happening after their arrest, despite hundreds killed and thousands displaced, none of the killers has been arrested.
