No fewer than seven people have been killed following separate attacks in Igabi and Kajuru local government areas of Kaduna state.
A statement by the State Commissioner for internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said the armed bandits attacked Kajinjiri village in the Igabi local government area and killed two residents, while one person sustained gunshot injuries, and is receiving treatment at a nearby hospital.
Similarly, in Rago village also of Igabi local government area, bandits killed two locals
In a separate incident, gunmen invaded Kutura station in Kajuru local government area and killed three residents.
Recently, there has been incessant killings by bandits across Kaduna State.
Bishop of the Kaduna Catholic Diocese, Most Reverend Mathew Ndagoso, had, in a recent interview, asked President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a state of emergency in the country’s security sector and protect the citizens from constant attacks by bandits and other criminal elements.
According to the Bishop, the president has failed woefully in protecting the lives and property of the citizens, contrary to his campaign promises.
He said the daily abductions and killings of innocent people by bandits, and the inability of President Buhari to put an end to the attacks, clearly show that Mr. Buhari cares less about the welfare of those he is leading.
