Lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Senator Shehu Sani, has lamented the spate of killings by gunmen and herdsmen in parts of Kaduna State.
Sani, who raised a point of order at the plenary on Tuesday on attacks on communities in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of the state, decried that hoodlums were taking over parts of the country.
He said criminals, including armed herdsmen, have taken over a part of Nigeria while the federal government has been left to control the remaining part.
According to him, local government area had been under siege of armed herdsmen and bandits in the last two to three years.
Sani said, “Part of this country is controlled by the government and a part is controlled by gunmen. For how long will this continue? Violence in all parts of the country. This systematic killing is becoming widespread everywhere. How can we say over 100 years after amalgamation and over five to six decades after independence, that in countries like Niger, Cameroon, and Benin Republic people there can live in safety?READ MORE
