The killings in Southern Kaduna have attracted a lot of reactions from around the world. Audu Maikori, Chairman of Chocolate City entertainment group has been at the forefront of criticizing the lack of governmental intervention on the matter especially on social media.
He often shares gruesome photos of what he alleges to be corpses of people killed in the mayhem. However, some twitter users called him out saying those photos were not from Southern Kaduna. One twitter user even went as far as asking the Department of State Security Service DSS to arrest him because he is a threat to peace in the country.
But a lot of people have also spoken out in support of him saying not only is he not a threat, he is just letting the world know about the extra judicial killings of his people.
A recent story he shared of how his driver’s younger brother and his friends who were students of Kaduna College of Education were killed by herdsmen also received a lot of criticism as the school issued a statement saying that no such event ever happened. But Audu fired back saying why then did the school release their statement a day before media houses like Vanguard published the story?
This issue of extra judicial killings in Southern Kaduna needs to be sorted out immediately. We call on the appropriate authorities to urgently look into the matter.
