Although the exact cause of the incident could not be ascertained, reports revealed that the killings reportedly resulted from a disagreement over where traders were to be off-loading their wares for sales during the Thursday market day.

Reacting in a post on Twitter on Saturday, Fani-Kayode slammed President Muhammadu Buhari’s silence on the issue.

He wrote: “Over 100 innocent Nigerians were slaughtered in cold blood in Kaduna state yesterday yet not one word has been heard about it from the Presidency.

“Worse still there has been a news blackout of the entire event. That is the Buhari legacy for you: murder, mayhem and mendacity.”
