Former Gov El-Rufai, Sanusi, Northern Lawmakers Should Contribute Salaries To Help Plateau Victims As They Did During Kaduna Incident – Sowore



Human rights activist and presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, has asked a former governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, and a former Emir of Kano State, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi and Northern lawmakers to contribute their salaries to help the victims of the multiple terrorist attacks in about 17 communities in Plateau State.

Sowore said this in a post on X (formerly Twitter) on Wednesday as Nigerians mourn over the tragic incident that occurred in about 17 communities in Bokkos and Barkin Ladi local government areas of Plateau where at least 155 persons have been confirmed killed, dozens injured and scores of houses burnt down.

Sowore, who said El-Rufai, Sanusi and the Northern lawmakers who contributed their salaries to help the victims of Nigerian Air Force bombing in Kaduna should replicate the same gesture in Plateau, also asked all the people who visited Kaduna during the bombing incident to show solidarity to replicate their action as well.

The convener of #RevolutionNow wrote, “I am hoping that @elrufai, @former Kano Emir, @SanusiLamidoS and all the northern lawmakers who contributed their salaries to help Kaduna bomb victims would not forget the Plateau herdsmen victims during this particular hour. The same applies to others who visited Kaduna to show ‘solidarity’”.

SaharaReporters had reported that the Plateau State Governor Caleb Mutfwang, had said that the Christmas Eve attacks in the 17 communities in the state were outright terrorism and never motivated by religious or farmers-herders crisis.

Governor Mutfwang also lamented how terrorists had been occupying schools in the Barkin-Ladi Local Government Area of the state for the past five years.
