SEPTEMBER 24, 2014

As you may be aware, Southern Kaduna Indigenes Progressive Forum (SKIPFo) is a registered, non-partisan, non profit, non-violent organisation made up largely of youths, serving and retired professionals of Southern Kaduna origin with the major objective of achieving a free, secured and developed Southern Kaduna. We are for peace, justice and the right of everyone to pursue self-realisation and happiness as contained in the Universal Chatter of Human Rights.

We are registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission as a corporate body

Having made this introduction, SKIPFo hereby wishes to state that it is with anguish and deep regret that we are making this Press Statement after the unending bloodbath of our people under the present Kaduna State government.

Unfolding events since the unprovoked,   violence against the non Hausa/Fulani residents of Kafanchan town just after the result of the April 2011 Presidential polls by well trained an armed Muslims supporters of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) Party, and the introduction of same carnage in Zonkwa, and most parts of Southern Kaduna, we  have not had any sleep.

Below is a chronicle of the gory summary of what Southern Kaduna has gone, and still going through
