The peace in Kachia town of Kaduna State was disrupted on Sunday, as adherents of the two major religions were embroiled in crisis, following an alleged demolition of places of worship by Christians and Muslims from different communities in the Kachia locality.
Governor Mukhtar Ramalan Yero of Kaduna State had, on Sunday, warned that his, “government will not fold its arms and allow enemies of peace cause mayhem in the state.”
The State Police Public Relations Officer, Aminu Lawal, had told newsmen that “the situation is under control, as our men are fully on the ground. No life is lost, but we don’t have the number of worship places that were burnt. We will let you know in due course as we don’t want to give wrong figures.”
Kachia, about 150km from Kaduna, is home to many military formations and had enjoyed peace for many years, until recently when some youths were alleged to have demolished the fence round the Muslim prayer ground in the area.
