Don’t politicise Tudun Biri mishap for parochial gains, group warns 

A group, Kaduna State Patriot and Good Governance Forum (KSPGGF), has called on citizens and Nigerians to rally together over the Tudun Biri bomb mishap to find a way to support the victims rather than seek parochial gains.  

Speaking in reaction to the N33 billion lawsuit said to have been instituted by one Dalhatu Salihu against the federal government over the mishap, and a statement in which the Southern Kaduna for Peace and Unity Forum berated Kaduna state government over its handling of the situation.

President of the group, Awwal Abdullahi Aliyu, tasked the Tudun Biri community to be careful of whom they relate with to avoid falling into the hands of those that have nothing good for them. They also cautioned those who want to benefit from the conflict to desist. 

“We are aware of a lawsuit filed by one Mukhtar Usman Esq, counsel to one Alhaji Dalhatu Salihu who is claiming to do so on behalf of the villagers. They are demanding for apology in three national dailies and N33 billion compensation. While it is the villagers’ right to seek legal redress. We wish to caution them from falling into the trap of idle lawyers who don’t genuinely care about their predicament but are more concerned about dispossessing them of the little assistance they have gotten from good-spirited individuals. 

“While acknowledging the strides made in addressing the unfortunate incident by different groups and stakeholders, we want to urge lawyers and politicians to refrain from politicising the situation. It is crucial that we maintain a united front and work towards resolving these challenges collectively, rather than exploiting them for personal or political gains.”
