At least 55 people were killed in Kasuwar Magani crisis believed to have resulted from religious and political differences.

The Secretary General of JNI, Dr Khalid Aliyu, condemned the crises in the two states, noting that the problems were allowed to fester by the failure of government to properly punish the perpetrators.

“Government on the other hand, particularly the judiciary should dispense justice promptly and appropriately, as there are cries over the delay tactics within the system, which has given impetus to the recurring communal crisis in Nigeria,” he said.

He also said, “At will people just take up arms to maim, kill and sometimes slaughter fellow human beings without any sober reflection, yet government often looks the other way on the alleged culprits.

“Something must be wrong with our psyche.”
