Baba Hassan in his lamentations said: “we are no longer safe in the whole of Jos North, there is need for urgent government’s intervention to protect the lives of citizens.
“The activities of the cultist and Sara-Suka boys have now become audible to the deaf and visible to the blind as it’s found in almost every community within Jos North.
“They follow us to our houses and they can easily break through our places of business and go away with important property, there are areas in my constituency in Jos North where other civilians and other security men cannot enter,” he added.
He said that although they have vigilante members in almost every community, but the government isn’t helping them in anyway.
“The government needs to assist them in curtailing this barbaric act.
“There is need to engage these youths in doing something positive, idleness and restiveness is one of the major reasons why they engaged in such criminal acts therefore, a need to empower them.
“All stakeholders ranging from traditional rulers, ward heads and religious clerics should stand on their toes to see to the end of this criminality if not, it will consume us all,” he submitted.
Other members spoke out on the dangers of cultists activities and presented their prayers on the floor of the House with a plea to the executive arm of government to be proactive in dealing with criminals of all sorts within Jos and Plateau State at large.
