The youth wing of the Southern Kaduna People’s Union (SOKAPU) has vowed to defend its communities against any terrorist attack.

Legaldeskng recalls that bandits stormed the Southern part, Unguwar Gimbiya, in the Sabon Tasha area of Chikun Local Government Area, killed two persons and abducted 50 others.

Reacting on Sunday over the frequent kidnapping and killings of innocent people in their area, the SOKAPU youth wing vowed they could no longer remain quiet and allow terrorists to attack communities, abduct the people and take them to the forests.

National Youth Leader of SOKAPU, Comrade John Isaac in a statement on Sunday, urged the residents of the area to rise up and defend themselves.

According to him, we must defend ourselves against terrorists that have now found a safe haven in our forests.

The group, while expressing grief over the recent attack at Unguwar Gimbiya, noted with sadness the repeated attack as the same community was attacked in July.

According to him, in the month of July 2021, “one was killed, several others were kidnapped while millions of naira was paid as ransom.”

SOKAPU warned that the unabated sacking of their communities by terrorists was sad and must stop.

“The recent killing of two of our kinsmen and the abduction of countless others at Ungwan Gimbiya in Sabon Tasha, a town within Kaduna metropolis, has left us perturbed as to the functionality of our security architecture and the readiness of government to tame the rising wave of criminality across the state and the country at large,” the group said.
