Zauru community in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area of troubled Southern Kaduna has foiled an attack by invaders, leading to the rescuing of 30 persons.

Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai, disclosed this in a statement issued in Kaduna on Saturday by his spokesman, Samuel Aruwan. He showered praises on the community.

The statement indicated that Zauro community in Bajju Chiefdom on Wednesday resisted a group of hoodlums who stormed their community with intent of attacking some settlements.

The community, apart from resisting the hoodlums, also alerted security agencies who were able to evacuate 30 persons, mostly children, women and aged men to Kafanchan.

The statement quoted the governor as saying: “I received the news with joy. The action taken by Zauro community to protect their neighbours is laudable. This is a bold step for peace and harmony. It testifies to the fact that there are people who do their utmost for a common humanity. All our communities should emulate Zauro, and uphold each other.

“This gesture is significant. It reinforces our confidence that ordinary citizens, living together and promoting harmony, are the best guarantee of sustainable peace. I hereby commend the entire Zauru community for this act. Their exemplary conduct should gladden everyone involved in the quest for peace.”
