BY Achadu Gabriel, Kaduna

Majority of those kidnapped in Zamfara, Katsina states, Birinin Gwari, Giwa in northern Kaduna state and other northwestern states of Nigeria are indigenous Christian Hausas popularly known as Maguzawas.

A Zaria born activist cum Christian leader Rev. David Ayuba Azzaman of Kings Worship Chapel and Ministry, Kaduna made the startling revelation in an interview with newsmen during Annual Convention of the Ministry in Kaduna on weekend.

He said even though Muslims are being kidnapped, he decided to let cat out of bag and put the record straight for the whole world to know that majority of those kidnapped are indigenous Hausa Christians call Maguzawas.

“The Hausa that are kidnapped in Zamfara, Kano, northern Kaduna like Birinin Gwari, Giwa are majorly Christian Hausas. I’m not saying, they don’t kidnapped Muslims but majority of those kidnapped are indigenous Hausa Christians call Maguzawas.

“This are the people they kidnapped. But the whole world think they are kidnapping Muslims. No, it’s Christians they are kidnapping. Even the northern government know it’s Christians they are kidnapping”, he lamented.

Pastor David Ayuba Azzaman who was ordained as Reverend, during the convention on weekend also revealed that he was born, brought up and schooled in Zaria but cannot lay claim to anything in the LG because of his name.

He however expressed dismay that even people from Kano state living in his area are claiming indigenes of the LG in Southern Kaduna where his parents hailed from.

“I was born in Zaria, schooled in Zaria, I don’t know anywhere but Zaria, but i cannot claim anything in Zaria, even though I’m from Southern Kaduna.

“I’ve been denied a lots of things because of my name David. But I see the same people in my locality, some of them from kano, claiming my local government but I cannot claim Zaria.
“So, with what we’ve gone through, look at killings. I’m a Pastor, some people will come, just last months, in fact, the people they kidnapped in Kajuru, we prayed here, and say they’ll escape and they escaped.

“And when they escaped they told me that many of the herdsmen say “you’ve to convert to Islam before we can stop kidnapping you”. And some people will say even Muslims are kidnapped. Go and ask, about the Muslims are kidnapped, go and ask the Hausas; let me say Hausa Christians in Zamfara. Check this very well”, he emphasized.

Rev. Azzaman further revealed that as activist in Christian body he also speaks for Muslims adding that “In 2017 I led a peaceful demonstration to free El-Zazaky.

“I see myself as an activist in Christina body. So my elevation to Reverend is to speak more like Rev. Martin Luther King in America.

On Babachir Lawal’s on Muslim – Muslim ticket, he described the move as unfortunate that the party could not found anyone capable among Christian north to pick as vice. “So, for now for a northern Christian, are we not capable for them to pick one from north as vice president.
“They say no, they must pick a Muslims in the north to deputize for a Muslims in the South. So I hundred percent agreed with Babachir Lawal, “that it’s only a mad Christian, that will go and vote Muslim- muslim ticket.

“You see, I love Babachir David Lawal interview. When I saw the interview i was shouting in my room in my house.
“In fact, i love the one he say in Hausa. He spoke in Hausa, and also agreed with him. We in the north, what we’ve gone through, me personal have gone through a lots because of my name David. I’ve gone through a lots”, he said.

He continue that “And see, Atiku is the continuation of fulanalization, why Tinubu is Islamic agenda. I mention it in the last interview. The world Islamic league said let all the parties field Muslim- Muslim, the major party, and they did it.

“It’s God that brother Peter Obi. I’m telling u, is not about Christianity but about liberation of Nigeria. What will Atiku, Tinubu do there, if you keep this three people; forget about the religion, Obi is the best.

“So I’m calling on the Christians of the northern Nigeria to vote for Peter Obi of LP. And i repeat, I’ll get 1million votes for Peter. Some Pastors said 1m is conservative and should be put at 2million votes, its possible.

“The whole northern Christian will go for LP, Just like Babachir said. You can feel it in the church now, when they mention LP the whole Church was up. so If u see a northern Christian going for APC maybe is their stomach, looking for something is appointment”, he said,

DSS ING Alarm:Legal Means Can Be Deployed To Stop Tinubu’s Inauguration- HURIWA



Civil rights advocacy group, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, (HURIWA), yesterday said there was nothing wrong in applying legal means to stop the inauguration of the President-Elect, Bola Tinubu on May 29, 2023 because the February 25, 2023 election that produced him is still being actively challenged in court by leading candidates in the poll.

HURIWA, in a statement by its National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, said the so-called alarm raised by the Department of State Services (DSS) on Wednesday that some politicians are plotting an interim government should not be used as an obstacle to stop the petitions filed by Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) challenging Tinubu’s Victory

The DSS warning followed a petition by the Minister of State for Labour and Productivity, Festus Keyamo that the DSS should invite Obi and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed, over their rejection of Tinubu as the President-Elect.

Similarly, Atiku had earlier in March led a protest to the Abuja office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to reject the result of the February 25 poll declared by the electoral umpire.

Both Atiku and Obi alleged electoral malpractices in the poll and are in court to challenge the declaration of Tinubu as President-Elect by INEC.

HURIWA’s Onwubiko said, “The Department of State Services should not rope in powerful opposition forces such as Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar with a view to finding some frivolous charges to hang on their necks to frustrate their formidable petitions against the outcome of the February 25 presidential poll.

“The DSS must work for all of Nigeria and not work as errand boys of Tinubu and his allies who only recently made claims that some persons want to stop his swearing in. By the way, there is nothing wrong in applying legal means to stop his inauguration because the election is being actively challenged. Nothing should be used as obstacles to obstruct Obi and Atiku’s petitions.

He advised that ,“The DSS should go after arm smugglers, kidnappers, bandits and terrorists and leave politicking for politicians.”
