Kadaria Ahmed has vowed to organise another protest if the killings in Zamfara should continue.
The Nigerian journalist speaking during an Arise TV programme stated that its her duty as a citizen to hold the government accountable for their actions.
In her words:
“I’m very happy with the response we got. The instant decision by the federal government to take some key actions has started getting us real results.”
“People on the ground are talking about the fact that a few people who have been kidnapped have been rescued. Armed bandits have been killed. Some have been arrested.
“There is a serious security operation taking place there and we are grateful for that. But beyond the security, we do not feel that the problem of Zamfara can be solved through security alone. First of all, it’s a very murky conflict. It’s been going on for so long that it’s very difficult to unravel the causes.
“It’s important that in the immediate term you provide security. People are able to go about their businesses but long term, there are really some serious issues that need to be tackled and this is why we are very angry with the people who have been in power successively in Zamfara state.
“Absolutely. If the insecurity is about to kickstart again, we will take to the street and that is my job as a citizen and I think that should be the job of every citizen to hold people in authority to account by reminding them that this is what we elected you to do and security is your primary responsibility as government. We can’t take arms and defend ourselves. If we did, there will be chaos.”
Okay Nigeria reported that Kadaria on April 6 lead a protest to the presidential villa in Abuja over the killings by armed bandits in Zamfara.
