President Muhammadu Buhari has appealed to Kaduna state indigenes to cooperate with government and security agencies to secure peace and harmony in the state.
The president made the appeal on Monday, September 21, during his speech at the virtual Kaduna investment summit 5.0 being aired by Channels TV.
"We must live together as brothers and sisters because without peace development cannot take place," the president said.
Kaduna state, particularly the southern part, has been embroiled in violence which claimed hundreds of lives for years.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the military eliminated several bandits after it bombarded their meeting venue in Kwaimbana forest area of Kaduna state.
This was disclosed by the Defence Headquarters through the coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj.-Gen. John Enenche, on Friday, September 18.
According to the DHQ, the Air Component of Operation Thunder Strike was on target on Thursday, September 17.
Legit.ng had also previously reported the details of Governor Nasir El-Rufai's meeting with Sultan of Sokoto, HRH Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, on Monday, August 24.
The discussions during the closed-door meeting held at Sir Kashim Ibrahim House in the state capital between El-Rufai and the monarch were on the killings in Southern Kaduna.
Speaking with newsmen after the meeting, the Sultan only said he came to visit his brother.
However, El-Rufai noted that the northern ruler was in Kaduna to advise him on how to ensure lasting peace in Southern Kaduna following the incessant attacks.
Apparently unhappy over the incessant loss of lives and damage to properties in the Southern Kaduna crisis, the lawmaker representing Kaduna Central, Senator Uba Sani, has urged leaders and elders in the area to cooperate with the government to work for peace collectively.
Legit.ng's regional reporter in Kaduna, Nasir Dambatta, reports that the senator in a statement he issued on Friday, August 7, advised the leaders in the area to pull the brakes, move for a rapprochement with the state government and collectively work out strategies for frontal battle against bandits wreaking havoc on the communities and people.
