A lawmaker representing Kaduna Central at the Senate, Uba Sani has sympathised with the grieving people of Kerawa and Birnin Yero communities in Igabi local government, Buruku in Chikun local government and Birnin Gwari over the huge losses they suffered in the hands of bandits.
Legit.ng's regional reporter in Kaduna, Nasir Dambatta reports that the senator, while distributing N10 million worth of foodstuff, clothing and other essentials, noted that he was on a visit to commiserate and lessen the pains caused by the murderous bandits and give them renewed hope.
The senator who is also the chairman Senate committee on banking, insurance and other financial institutions, expressed dismay that despite strenuous efforts by the Kaduna state government and security agencies, bandits were still holding sway, maiming and killing the people and destroying properties with reckless abandon.
Sani, however, assured them that the El-rufai administration would never succumb to the blackmail and evil machinations of the bandits and their sponsors, adding that the government is determined to win the war against banditry and kidnapping.
The lawmaker, who expressed delight over the warm reception accorded him by the leaders in all the areas he visited, also hailed the efforts of the state government for sustaining the tempo of its battle against banditry, kidnapping and allied crimes.
He also stated that it was heartwarming that the leaders of the area committed themselves to more vigorous community vigilance to support the efforts of the government in curbing banditry, kidnapping and other forms of criminal activities in their communities.
Senator Sani, therefore, presented relief materials worth N10 million to the victims of the bandits' attacks.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Senator Uba Sani put smiles on the faces of the wives of the late police officers in the state by donating a sum of N2million to them.
It was reported that the senator made the kind gesture as a special guest at the annual empowerment programme of the Police Officers Wives Association (POWA) held in Kaduna.
