Polls: NBA cautions lawyers against interfering in electoral process

NBA condemns Kaduna killings, wants perpetrators punished

By Akeem Abas
Ibadan –   The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has condemned the gruesome murder of some Nigerians in the Southern Kaduna, calling on the relevant authorities to institute probe into the killings.

This is contained in a statement signed by its President, Mr Abubakar Mahmoud (SAN) and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria(NAN) in Ibadan on Wednesday.

He described the development as part of a series of attacks and disturbances in different parts of the country, urging relevant authorities to ensure that the culprits are punished according to the law.

Mahmoud insisted that there could be no justification for the wanton termination of innocent souls and destruction of property.

The NBA boss noted that the carnage was nothing but violation of human rights of citizens living in the community.

He urged the Federal and Kaduna State governments to ensure that a lasting solution to the crisis was achieved as soon as possible, in fulfillment of their responsibilities to protect lives and properties.

“The NBA wishes to remind all authorities that security of lives and property is the primary purpose of government.

“Yet peace and security has continued to elude us and has remained a raging issue on the front burner of national discourse.

“We commend the recent efforts of the Federal Government and the Kaduna State Government, in tackling the security challenges facing Southern Kaduna.
