- Senator Uba Sani has condemned the recent killings in Kaduna communities
- The lawmaker said the killings of innocent Nigerians must be stopped
- According to him, the FG should partner with the Kaduna government to end banditry in the state
Following the incessant killings in Kaduna communities and highways, the lawmaker representing Kaduna Central senatorial district at the red chamber, Uba Sani, has described the incidents as barbaric, ungodly and unacceptable.
Legit.ng's regional reporter in Kaduna, Nasir Dambatta, reports that the senator warned that the regularity of attacks and killings of innocent souls would no longer be tolerated.
Speaking on the renewed wave of attacks on communities in Igabi and Kajuru local government areas of the state and the repeated bandit hold-ups along the Kaduna-Abuja road, Senator Sani in a message issued on Wednesday, November 18, called for an immediate end to non-state actors holding the nation to ransom.
Lamenting the situation where criminals with access to instruments of violence operate with ease, he said, there is a major cause for concern to anybody interested in the security and welfare of the people.
The lawmaker also lamented the continued siege on the Abuja-Kaduna major expressway by bandits, adding that the menace has become a direct affront on the will and capacity of the federal government and the entire national security assets.
He warned that criminal elements should not be allowed to “annex” a strategic gateway in the country without adequate measures at tackling them.
Senator Sani said the time has come to take the fight against the bandits and kidnappers and reassert the federal government’s monopoly of the coercive instruments of state.
He also asked the federal government to work with the Kaduna government to uproot the bandits from Igabi and Kajuru local government areas of the state.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, said that the Force would not allow a repeat of the recent attacks, looting, and destruction of properties by hoodlums in some parts of the country.
It was reported that the IGP said the Force would deploy the full weight of the law and legitimate force (if necessary) in preventing a reoccurrence of the incident.
