DISTRESS CALL from a resident that wishes to remain anonymous
On my way to Mando Park to board a Night Journey Bus, I saw many trucks and mini buses along Askolaye roundabout loaded with hausas, meanwhile they were holding the posters of Late Sheikh Abubakar Gumi and also one of the Late Sheikh of Borno state. The trucks and buses together with the Hausas inside were moving towards Trikania.
These areas needs to be ransacked, they are Ungwar Romi, Kudenda Village, Barnawa Market area and the whole of Barnawa, Parts of Maranba Rido, Nasarawa and Kakuri. These are all Kaduna south areas but still have hausas leaving among them as neighbours... Please help contact the Security Agents, to do a thorough search in these areas...
Report from Another Resident
I called a friend of mine who lives in the same area, he said he hears sounds of machine gun and hence he is lying flat under his bed. This is happening now in kakuri, close to Trikania, the scene of Sunday’s blast.
He also added that they the Christians are trying to gather weapons as much as they can find to protect themselves.
I also gathered that soldiers are now shooting sporadically to scare the human hunters. I also noticed that in Sabon Tasha where I live, people are still awake and afraid to sleep. So also in Romi, Barnawa, Trikaniya, Kakuri, and most part of the state as I gathered people now turn night watchmen as a friend just told me from Romi.
ANOTHER DISTRESS REPORT WE GOT EARLIER
I left Kaduna for Lagos yesterday morning, it was about an hour after I left Kaduna, that a fellow passenger in six seater golf I boarded received a call concerning Shalom Church bombings, immediately i made calls to my family and friends in Kaduna who told me Kaduna is in a bad shape as Christians are already killing and burning Muslims in the Kaduna south.. I had to log on to the internet and behold I saw many dead Muslims, the pictures were uploaded by my friends who uses Blackberry because some of them were at the scene of the crises...
I can confirm that Nassarawa, Tirkania and Kakuri are calm now. I have just confirmed that through phone calls. Security operatives have been drafted to maintain order. - Samaila Leeman
