Worried over security challenges in southern part of Kaduna state, the emir of Jama’a, Alhaji Muhammad Isa Muhammad (CON) has met with the Chiefs of Kaninkon (Tum Nkyob), and Waziri of Zikpak Chiefdom deliberate on the prevailing insecurity in Jema’a and the neighbouring local government areas of Kaura and Zangon Kataf.
The emir, while delivering a short remark at the commencement of the meeting, said although the Jama’a emirate enjoys relative peace, the escalation of the crises in neighbouring local government areas which spill into the emirate remains a source of concern and compels the convening of the meeting with the rulers to share experiences, map out peace strategies, and pray for lasting peace.
Speaking at the event that took place at Jama’a Emir’s Palace in Kafanchan, the Executive Chairman of Jama’a LGA, Peter Danjuma Averik said the decision of creating a forum for interaction among the traditional rulers is timely and a welcome idea, noting that dialogue is the panacea for mutual understanding.
In their separate remarks, the Chief of Kaninkon, Mallam Tanko Tete, and the Waziri of Zikpak chiefdom who represented the Chief, promised to support any kind of peace effort from the emirate.
The meeting had in attendance representatives of the security agencies; Pastor Emmanuel Egoh Bako of Good News Power Base, Kafanchan; traditional title holders of Jama’a Emirate, as well as leaders of Igbo, and Yoruba communities in the area.
Zikpak, Kaninkon Chiefdoms, and Jama’a Emirate are from Jema’a Local Government
