Nigeria: Half Naked Women Confront Governor Yero of Kaduna State

On Monday, Governor Mukhtar Ramalan Yero of Kaduna State and his entourage were on their way to Fadan Karshi, in Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna State to pay a condolence visits to the little town that had come under several invasion by suspected Ansaru Islamic terrorists, said to have disguised as Fulani gunmen.

The governor had come under criticism for allegedly refusing to visit villages in southern Kaduna where mass killings in the past two years of his government have attracted global media coverage. According to eye witness accounts from Fadan Karshi, where the governor was received at
the palace of the District Head, the governor was embarrassed all the way into the place, mainly by protesting women, some half nude.

“The women were angry that after not less than seven attacks on their villages, in which not less than 300 villagers were killed since last July, the governor had not visited the place until a few months to the 2015 elections,” Mr. Bezard Wuyah, National President of Ninzom Progressive Youths, told reporters in Kaduna.

It was gathered that some of the women carried placards with messages such as, ‘Election time is near, come and deceive Sanga people again; The blood of our husbands would haunt the guilty; ‘Give us food, not scare us with soldiers’; ‘Will you treat your mother like this?’

Some more wailed and rolled on the rain soaked ground in front of the convoy, blocking it from moving, according to eye witnesses.

“The governor came with hundreds of soldiers, policemen, Roads Safety Corps, SSS, even prison guards. It was more of an invasion, not a condolence visit. Our mothers and sisters, who were expecting a sober, caring governor were furious when they saw it as a form of intimidation; so they bared their minds on the negligence they had suffered since gunmen sacked their villages and rendered them homeless” one of the eye witnesses said.
