Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone, Comrade Shehu Sani, has said that all efforts by the government to tame insecurity, especially kidnapping in Northern states of Kaduna, Zamfara, Niger and Plateau have failed.
Senator Sani, in a Facebook post, added kidnappers and bandits have taken full control of the area, as the states are now under siege.
He called on the Federal Government to allocate special sum from the excess crude account to assist the states and security agencies including the military.
The post reads;
“Communities in Kaduna, Zamfara, Niger and Plateau states are under siege.
“Kidnappers and bandits have taken full control.
“I’m formally writing to the President to demand a surge to protect lives and properties.
“All measures taken so far failed to address the problem.
If it will take allocating a special sum from the excess crude account to assist the states and security agencies including the military, the President must act.
“The FG must not wait for the North West and North Central to become North East before taken seriously.”
