British Commission Reacts to Death of Citizen Killed in Kaduna

Crime

The British Commission has reacted to the killing of one of its national, Miss Faye Mooney, by gunmen in Kaduna.

This was contained in a statement on its official Twitter page on Sunday, April 21.

The deceased who was a staff of Mercy Corps, Nigeria, was killed alongside one other person during their recreation moment at the Kajuru Castle Resort, while 3 others were abducted.

In its post, the Commission sympathized with Nigeria on the unfortunate incident and said that the deceased next-of-kin has been informed of the development.

However, reactions have trailed the post from concerned persons, with some blaming the occurrence on Nigeria’s government.

Our condolences to the family of Faye Mooney killed in Kaduna on Friday. We are deeply sorry that Nigeria Government seems to be incapable to defeat terrorism in Nigeria because of corruption in the military-who has commercialised the fight against insurgency across the North.

You guys are not serious, because it affects your own… So all this while we’ve been crying about the killings in kaduna, you guys actually thinks it was a joke?

@estherclimate

Rufus.. The UK is not your govt. Hold your state govt accountable, not a foreign govt. I think you need more civic education 🤦🏻‍♀️

@xxxhtman

His comment weak me sef.. Why anyone would think a foreign govt is responsible for security baffles me. Please educate him some more.

@uc_rufyz

You can go ahead and educate me, they are not responsible for security that I know, but you can’t dispute the fact that they have a role to play..

@xxxhtman

Ummm, Nigeria is a sovereign nation, so what role exactly?

@uc_rufyz

Refuse entry into UK, US and other Western country of senior government officials and others whose actions and inactions contributes to the security challenges, support training of our military personnel.

@estherclimate

Rufus have you ever written a petition to your state government? Have you directly ever held them to account? Charity begins at home bro

@uc_rufyz

Yah, I know… I wasn’t expecting them to act in anyway different. As for my state government/Governor, he is a disaster. Leadership is zero. Bad governance in this part trickle down from the top to the bottom. End of conversation

@society_german

Our condolence to @UKinNigeria and the family of the victim. #insecurity

Most of the comments on this platform are as unfortunate as the situation, this should be a time to sympathise with the victims and their families. May the Almighty grant their souls eternal rest.

@leghagha144

My condolences, why would a British citizen go to Kaduna and other kidnap prone areas in the north?

@AlfsAwful
