El-Rufa’i raises panel on Zangon-Kataf crisis

Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufa’i has resolved to find a permanent solution to the perennial crises that keep erupting in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area.

The State Executive Council has set up a committee to develop a White Paper on the recommendations given on the issue.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Muyiwa Adekeye, the governor said the government set up a committee to draft a White Paper on the two reports of the Justice Rahila Cudjoe Commission of Inquiry into the Zangon-Kataf riots of February and May 1992.

The statement further said that the White Paper drafting committee “will also consider the 1995 report of the Zangon-Kataf Reconciliation Committee, chaired by Air Vice Marshall Usman Muazu.’’

The statement recalled that “violent clashes broke out in Zangon-Kataf LGA on 11th June 2020, between two communities that were reportedly disputing over ownership of farmlands whose place in the conflict is mentioned in the 1992 and 1995 reports.’’

The special adviser said that recommendations in both the Justice Cudjoe Commission of Inquiry and the Air Vice Marshall Mu’azu reports have not received comprehensive response or attention.
