“Houses were burnt, properties destroyed our people are homeless, some are in refugees camps it is quite disheartening and we do not have a representative, we do not have goverment backing.

“We want to break away because this is devastating the Kaduna goverment can not protect us so let them leave us,” she added.

She expressed sadness that we the Southern Kaduna we do not even know where we belong because Kaduna goverment is now rule by Muslim, Muslim there by our people lender helpless and hopeless. So it is better we break away from Kaduna and have a state of our own and elect leaders that can stand for us.
