Half Of Nigeria Controlled By Armed Herdsmen, Criminals - Shehu Sani
Everyone is pained over the attacks and killings by Fulani herdsmen across the country.
But it obviously pains some more than others, especially those from the regions where the killings and attacks have been more intense.
Such people include the lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Senator Shehu Sani.
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 over attacks on communities in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of the state, decried that hoodlums were taking over parts of the country.
“Part of this country is controlled by government and a part is controlled by gunmen. For how long will this continue? Violence in all parts of the country,” Sani lamented.
“This systematic killing is becoming widespread everywhere. How can we say over 100 years after amalgamation and over 5 to 6 decades after independence, that in countries like Niger, Cameroun and Benin Republic people there can live in safety?” questioned an angry Sani.
“I am raising this issue to all the authorities that are concerned that there is a need to have a permanent military presence in this local government,” he said.
According to him, the local government area had been under siege of armed herdsmen and bandits in the last two to three years.
