Hausa Community Debunks Claims Of War At Mile 12
The deputy head of Hausa community in Mile 12, Abdu-hami Galadima, has debunked claims that his people are at war with their host community, saying a lasting solution to the riot and looting that took place at the market, few days ago, is on the way.
According to him, the current crisis in the area would not be allowed to degenerate to what happened in 1999, when many were killed and property destroyed.
“The talk in some quarters that we are at war with our landlords or want to take over their land is wicked. There could be problem among family members, and there should be a way to make peace. It is impossible to take what belongs to someone else unlawfully. We are still at a loss over what happened,” he said.
Continuing, he said, “we don’t have a house of our own in this area, but some us have been living here even before the arrival of the market. And we can only appeal for cooperation with our landlords, we are here to do business not for war.”
