Uba Sani calls for bombardment of Kaduna bandits’ hideouts
The Senator representing Kaduna Central, Malam Uba Sani has condemned bandit attacks on Giwa and Kajuru communities of Kaduna State, describing it as “murderous and wicked act of desperation that left a trail of blood and destruction.”
He called on security agencies to review their strategies in tackling banditry, saying the fight should be taken to the attackers. Gangs of bandits had carried out attacks on Bakali village in Giwa Local Government Area and Maro village in Kajuru Local Government Area, killing 29 persons— 22 in Bakali and seven in Maro, with yet to be ascertained number of persons inflicted with various forms of injuries.
He said: “Three persons injured in the Maro village attack are presently in St. Gerard Hospital, Kakuri, Kaduna. Two of them have undergone surgery. The attacks on communities are becoming more frequent. So, urgent steps must be taken to take the fight to the bandits. Our security agencies must reassess their strategies and come up with measures to checkmate these murderous elements.
“There is a humanitarian crisis that needs to be addressed immediately in the communities. Hundreds of locals have been displaced from the two villages. The bandits burnt their houses and foodstuffs. These displaced persons need foodstuffs, clothes, blankets, water, toiletries and other items that would help lessen the pain of their displacement…”
