El-Rufai Sacks Aide Over Facebook Comment On Southern Kaduna Killings

By Israel Bulus, Kaduna

Kaduna State governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai has allegedly sacked one of his aides in the office of the Deputy governor, Mr Mock Samuel Kure, over a comment he allegedly made on Facebook when terrorists attacked his Goska community during curfew and killed over six people on Christmas Eve, 2016.

Mock Kure, it was alleged that he posted a comment on Facebook when his community suffered an unprovoked attacked by Fulani herdsmen on the 24th December, 2016 which did not go down well with an aides of the governor.

A top government official who pleaded anonymity said, “Mock Kure was handed a letter of disengagement on Thursday at the government house Kaduna.”
Both the governor, and the deputy, who is out of the country might not be aware of this development,” it was gathered.

Mock Kure is an indigine of Goska, Kaninkong Chiefdom in Jema’a Local government. The community was attacked on the 24th December, 2016. No fewer than six people were brutally killed including the daughter of a former Chairman of Jema’a LGA, Barr Gideon Morik. Many houses were also destroyed in the Goska attack.

Mock is an ardent APC supporter who also worked tirelessly during the elections to ensure both his party and el-Rufai get to power.

Meanwhile, some people in the southern part of the state have viewed the sack as a total war of marginalization waged by the el-Rufai’s government against the region.

People who spoke to Elanza News said it was disheartening that an appointee of government who is a victim of one of the attacks has to be sacked without any reason.
