The Hausa-Fulani and Muslim communities in Southern Kaduna have demanded their own chiefdoms.

According to the group, they are laying claim to Southern Kaduna as the original owners of the area.

The group, also revealed that Hausa-Fulani were neither minority nor settlers in the area.

Imam Kabir Kasim Kafanchan, the Hausa-Fulani/Muslim community leader stated that major Christian tribes laying claims to Southern Kaduna migrated originally from other northern states.

He urged the Kaduna State Assembly to enact a law stopping Hausa-Fulani from being referred to as settlers in Southern Kaduna.

The community leader went to call on the Kaduna State Government to create Chiefdoms for them in places that were founded by the Hausa-Fulani such as Kasuwan Magani, Kachia, and Zango Urban.

The community went on to debunk the alleged genocide carried out against Christian natives of the area.

Recall that the communities under the auspices of Coalition of United Muslim Group, Kaduna State, Muslim Youth Foundation of Southern Kaduna, Nasihatu Ahlizzaman Southern Kaduna Muslim Forum and Zumunta Youth Development, Kasuwan Magani, addressed reporters on Sunday, August 16.

Speaking during the address,  they said Muslims make up 40% of the population while the Hausa-Fulani are the majority of the about 30 tribes that constitute Southern Kaduna. They further decried that for too long facts have been distorted against them in the ongoing killings in Southern Kaduna in reaction to the spate of attacks.

According to them, the grand plan of the ‘Christian militia’ of Southern Kaduna is to eliminate Muslims from the area.
