El-Rufai made this allegation on Tuesday when the Senate Ad-hoc Committee on Southern Kaduna Crisis on a fact finding mission on the crisis led by Sen. Kabir Gaya met him in his office.

The governor said most policemen in Southern Kaduna are from the place, and accused them of abandoning their neutrality and taking sides with the Christians.

He said, “I have already mentioned the instance in which a police sergeant, who is supposed to impose curfew, was the one organising women to come out and throw stones at us.

“What we now found is that about 90 per cent of all the policemen in southern Kaduna are from southern Kaduna and they have taken side.

“They have been persuaded by the narrative there that when certain crimes happens don’t even report it.

“When we went to Kafanchan for the special security council meeting, it was policemen from the Government House that were calling to say we have arrived, let the women now come out.”

El-Rufai stated that most reports on the crisis are riddled with false claims.

“There is a lot of fake news on the crisis. They take pictures of the crisis in Rwanda and Boko Haram and post it as happening in southern Kaduna. This is done every day because there are no consequences.

“But there will be, because we are tracking these people, we are going to frame charges and we are going to bring these people to Kaduna and they will face a judge,” he threatened.
