Nigerians on social media are currently expressing outrage over the mass burial of 40 people who are mostly Christians, killed by suspected terrorists in Southern Kaduna.
Southern Kaduna Killings
It was gathered that the victims were killed by gunmen last Sunday in Malagum 1 and Sokwong communities in Kagoro chiefdom, Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna.
During the funeral service of the 40 victims on Thursday, the Catholic Bishop of the Kafanchan diocese, Reverend Julius Kundui called on the government at all level to focus on their primary responsibility of protecting the lives and property of the people.
While narrating their ordeal, some of the victims said they have been neglected by the government and called on the international community to come to their rescue.
The victims said that they lost 29 motorcycles, and two cars and 164 houses were burned adding that in less than two years the area had lost over 80 persons in Kagoro and Madamai communities who were killed by terrorists.
The Catholic Diocese of Kafanchan posted photos from the Inter-denomination burial service on its official Facebook page.
“The Inter- denomination burial Mass/ service of the victims of Fulani herders attack at Mallagum, Kagoro, Kaura Local Government Area, Kaduna State, Nigeria, on this day Thursday, 22nd December, 2022.
‘May their Souls Rest in Peace with the Lord.” the post read.
The people of Southern Kaduna have decried government’s inability to arrest and bring to book the perpetrators of several attacks on the area since 2014.
The mass burial has sparked outrage on social media with many Nigerian on Twitter accusing the government of ignoring Christians genocide in Southern Kaduna.
Kagoro is my mother's hometown. Many of my relatives have left their homes and gone to seek refuge elsewhere. This is Christmas season, the happiest season in Kagoro destroyed by genocide and hate.
Our only fault is existing.
God save Southern Kaduna 🙏🏽 pic.twitter.com/sndhE0lzl7

Sorrow! Tears!! Blood!!!
This is the lot of the people of Southern Kaduna. There is no government to protect them. The moment there is a call for self-defense, the security agents respond by raiding and disarming them. The cheapest commodity in Nigeria is human life. God help us. pic.twitter.com/Zs1iHjXUPb

When TY Danjuma, a former Army Chief said that the military is colluding with the terrorists killing people in the country, many thought he was just being mischievous.

Let the world see the atrocities continually committed by the jihadist against the people of #southernkaduna. Today, we buried 40 persons. Here are the bullets used. The questions therefore is; who owns the bullet? And how can any human use such on another human? pic.twitter.com/H5BIfS73b1

My people, I have a question to ask?
Take a look at this video and images. This bullet was used in southern Kaduna. The only gun that uses this bullet is right in this image, you see.
My question is, who is fighting a war and who declared a war on us all without knowing? pic.twitter.com/bC5rR5QvsI
