ACPF fumes over Drone attack on Kaduna community


By: Femi Mustapha


A group under the auspice of the Arewa Consultative Progressive Forum (ACPF) has expressed dismay over the unfortunate drone attack on a group of people on a Maulud procession at Tudun Biri community, Afaka Ward, near Rigasa, in an Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State.


The National Publicity Secretary of the group  Hon. Ahmed Tijjani Mustapha asserted this while speaking to the Injured victims of the attack currently receiving treatment at Barau Dikko Specialist Hospital Kaduna on 5th December, 2023


According to him  ACPF deeply mourns and hereby condoles all families of the dead.


“We pray that God Almighty grants the dead peace. We also pray for a quick and full recovery for those injured.


“Efforts must thus be put in place to avert such avoidable loss of lives (and property). Communities in the northern states have enough problems with banditry to have to worry about becoming hapless victims of the misbegotten strategies of those who should be helping to wipe out the scourge of banditry and terrorism.


The Group commends the Kaduna State Government for its quick response to the situation and for coming to the aid of the injured.


ACPF calls for an investigation of the incident, to establish what exactly happened, who was involved and how, the number of lives lost and injured; etc. Any those found guilty of professional or operational incompetence must be severely disciplined, and transparently.


“We want to state here that the Kaduna State Government has to act to protect the interest of the victims and not the Nigerian Army personnel that perpetrated the incident. ” He said.
