Kaduna market riot: Igbo leaders cry out over missing kinsmen

News

Leaders of the Igbo community in Kaduna State have alleged that some of their kinsmen were still missing following the riot that broke out in the state few weeks back.

Recall that a communal crisis erupted at Kasuwan Magani, Kajuru Local Government Area of the state where several people were killed, many houses and other property were burnt by rioters.

The Chairman, Igbo Community Welfare Association (ICWA), Kasuwan Magani chapter, Mr. Tobias Udeh, speaking to Sun said “As I speak to you, I cannot locate some of our people. We don’t know whether they have relocated to the East or to the neigbouring communities.

“We are still searching for them. But all we know is that they are alive. We didn’t lose any Igbo man. But we don’t know their whereabouts. Many Igbo lost property worth hundreds of millions of naira.

“I personally lost millions of naira following the burning of my property. It was not quite long I received fresh supply that the place was set ablaze.

“On the day of the incident, I went to one village to buy chicken for the celebration of my birthday which I always mark on February 27 of every year. I left my house as early as 6:00a.m and by the time I returned around 9:00a.m, I discovered that my wife was not in the house. One of my children told me that she had travelled to Kaduna town to buy some items.
