Reps Seek End To Needless Killings In Zamfara State.

Zamfara State had become one of the worst-hit states concerning the spate of killings.



The House of Representatives has stressed the need to halt the continuous killings in Zamfara State, calling on the armed forces and other security agencies to urgently flush out criminals and restore normalcy in the state.

This followed adoption of a motion of urgent public importance sponsored by the member representing Gusau/Tsafe Federal Constituency, Hon. Kabir Ahmadu.

Ahmadu regretted that Zamfara State had become one of the worst-hit states concerning the spate of killings,

maiming and all forms of destruction for over a decade.

He said over five farmers were killed in the week, and 17 of them were abducted in Magami Town. In contrast, bandits stormed students’ off-campus residences in the Sabon Gida area last week, where they took away five students of Federal University Gusau.

“Recently in Taafe, bandits in broad daylight invaded the town, attacked and killed almost eight people, abducted dozens and as usual, they are now demanding millions of Naira as ransom,” he said.

The lawmaker expressed concern at the frequent means through which bandits attack soft targets and cart away hostages, food, goods and services.

He stated that the bandits who abduct vulnerable women and students request millions of naira in ransom from poor citizens who can no longer access their farms for fear of attacks.

Ahmadu expressed sadness that schools, markets and other socio-economic centres have been forced to shut down, leaving the people helpless.

Consequently, the House resolved to set up an ad-hoc committee to liaise with the armed forces to ensure the prayers of the motion are complied with.
