He said: "Kaduna state is as unsafe as Benue, Zamfara and Taraba states. Birnin Gwari bothering Zamfara and Niger state is controlled by heavily armed bandits or Herdsmen who are killing both soldiers and civilians. Kidnapping and killing is a daily occurrence.Anything short of this is a lie.
"The mass killings and kidnappings going on in parts of Kaduna state is systematically suppressed in order not to embarrass the state and the Federal government. Poor people kept burying their dead with tears and others paying heavy ransom to herdsmen.The victims are expected to praise Govt for ‘trying’.
"The roots of herdsmen mass murder and kidnappings in other parts of Nigeria is in the policy of ‘Paying Herdsmen’ by some governors.They appeased a monster with public funds and now the monster is going door to door; Sahel, Savanna and mangrove forests.
"Any governor of a state operating the policy of conditional cash transfer to killer herdsmen is their patron. And he must be seen and treated as a national security risk."
