El-Rufa’i raises panel on Zangon-Kataf crisis

June 30, 2020

 203     195

Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufa’i has resolved to find a permanent solution to the perennial crises that keep erupting in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area.

The State Executive Council has set up a committee to develop a White Paper on the recommendations given on the issue.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Muyiwa Adekeye, the governor said the government set up a committee to draft a White Paper on the two reports of the Justice Rahila Cudjoe Commission of Inquiry into the Zangon-Kataf riots of February and May 1992.

The statement further said that the White Paper drafting committee “will also consider the 1995 report of the Zangon-Kataf Reconciliation Committee, chaired by Air Vice Marshall Usman Muazu.’’

The statement recalled that “violent clashes broke out in Zangon-Kataf LGA on 11th June 2020, between two communities that were reportedly disputing over ownership of farmlands whose place in the conflict is mentioned in the 1992 and 1995 reports.’’

The special adviser said that recommendations in both the Justice Cudjoe Commission of Inquiry and the Air Vice Marshall Mu’azu reports have not received comprehensive response or attention.

He said: “No White Paper was drafted or adopted by the Dabo Lere government that established the Justice Cudjoe Commission and the Colonel Lawal Jafar Isa government that appointed the AVM Muazu Reconciliation Committee.’’

The statement recalled that the February 1992 riots in Zangon-Kataf council led to 95 deaths and injuries to 233 persons.

It said: “In the May 1992 riots, the death toll increased, with 1,528 persons killed in Zangon-Kataf and 305 others in Zaria, Ikara and other parts of the state to which the rioting spread.”

According to the statement, the administration of former Head of State, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida detained and prosecuted some persons.

It said: “But the elected government of Kaduna State, led by Alhaji Dabo Lere, did not produce a White Paper to set out its official position on the recommendations of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry.

“On 30th November 1994, the military administrator of Kaduna State, Colonel Lawal Jafar Isa, appointed the Committee for Reconciliation and Search for Peace in Zangon-Kataf community, under the chairmanship of AVM Usman Muazu, himself a former governor of the state, with equal representation from the Atyap and Hausa communities.”

In the eight-member committee are permanent secretaries   Adamu Mansur (Ministry of Human Services); Chris Umar (Ministry of Justice); Abdullahi Sani (Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs); Habiba Shekarau (Ministry of Housing & Urban Development); Ibrahim Jere (Public Service Office); Phoebe Yayi (Ministry of Education); Aisha K. Mohammed (Civil Service Commission) and Senior Special Assistant at the Kaduna Geographic Information Service (KADGIS) Bulus Audu.

The committee has six weeks to submit its report.
