The Youth Wing of Southern Kaduna Youth Peoples Union (SOKAPU), Saturday issued a serious warning to Kaduna State governor, Mallam Nasir El-rufai to re-consider the planned demolition of Gbagyi Villa, a community with over 4,000 structures in Kaduna metropolis.
The youths who were viciously angry condemned the planned action, wondering why the governor was desperate to demolish an entire community while the case was still pending in a court of competent jurisdiction.
The SOKAPU National Youth Co-ordinator, Comrade Nasiru Jagaba while speaking at the stakeholders meeting organized by the group on Saturday in Kaduna, said that “it is obvious the governor wants blood, as he is so desperate to go ahead with the demolition plan.”
He warned that if even one building was touched, the situation could get ugly.
His comment was greeted with cheers from the other youths who in their support for the speaker, almost made the meeting rowdy.
The youths urged the governor to give peace a chance, saying his action might degenerate into unpalatable consequences that may affect the peaceful co-existence currently being enjoyed.
“I pray this issue can be addressed peacefully because we love our state, so we can go about our duties without fear. If anything happens, it would take us years back from the gains we have made at ensuring peace,” he added.
