Following the rise in the number of violent crimes in Nasarawa, the governor of the state, Abdullahi Sule, has deemed it imperative to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari.
The duo met at Presidential Villa in Abuja on Tuesday, August 18, after which Sule informed journalists that the worsening menace of insecurity in the state is due to the activities of bandits who came from the Northwest and Northeast parts of the region.
In fact, the governor disclosed that the situation has been so bad that even hunters and vigilante groups have braced up and resolve to face the criminal head-on.
He said: “Hunters, as well as the vigilante groups in Nasarawa state, are able to follow because they are very familiar with the places.
“The criminals in Nasarawa State are new, they are not from Nasarawa State, so as a result of that, our own people are more familiar with the ground and are able to follow where they are."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the speaker of the house of representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, had said that the state of insecurity in the country had made Nigeria unattractive to investors.
The speaker disclosed this on Saturday, July 25, at the public presentation of the updated legislative agenda of the house of representatives.
Speaking the troubling issue, Gbajabiamila stated: “We are at war, fighting insurgents in the North-east who want to remake our world in the image of a medieval theocracy. Our education system is producing graduates who cannot compete in the 21st-century knowledge economy.”
Much earlier, the rampant killings of innocent people in the northern part of the country had been decried by a group, the Coalition Against Killings in Northern Nigeria (CAKIN).
Legit.ng reported that the coalition in a statement it issued on Monday, June 15, at Arewa House, Kaduna, lamented that the elected governments at both the federal and state levels had failed in their primary responsibilities of protecting lives and property of the citizens.
