A group, Northern Development Movement (NDM), has lamented the regular killings in the North, adding that the region is bleeding.
The convener of the group, Ismail Bako and the secretary, Patricia Gambo, expressed the lamentation in a statement on Thursday.
They stated: “The North is bleeding, not just Southern Kaduna. Our march towards development has been hampered. It is time stakeholders realise the enormity of what we have done to ourselves.
“We cannot continue on this path. It will definitely take us years to recover from the damage the crisis has caused.
“NDM is making a passionate appeal to all in the region to give peace a chance. We also urge politicians to play with rules of the game as the 2023 general elections draws near.
“NDM also commends the DHQ which took this peace initiative to Plateau State in 2021.”
The group also lauded the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Lucky Irabor, over his recent move to halt incessant killings in Southern Kaduna.
