An attack by bandits in 3 villages in Zango, Kataf and Chikun local government areas led to the death of 10 persons. Barely 24 hours ago, bandits killed seven people in Igabi and Kajuru local government areas of the state. Confirming the incident, the Kaduna State Commissioner for internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan said the bandits also burnt down ten houses, two motorcycles, and 50 bags of ginger, while some dry season farmers lost water pumping machines and other valuables around the Zango Urban general area.

In spite of these attacks, the Kaduna state government continues to rule out negotiations with the bandits, in a recent interview with channels television, the Kaduna State Commissioner for internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan said the bandits behind the attacks are from neighbouring states, hence there is no justification to negotiate with criminals who have nothing on the table.

On it’s part, the Federal Government has insisted that necessary measures have been put in place to protect all Nigerians, particularly in the school environment, following the spate of abductions of school children in some states. The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, said this yesterday while fielding questions from State House reporters after a close-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Sirika also said the government would not rule out the possibility of attempts to embarrass government by some elements with the rising incidents of students abductions. Last Sunday Hadi Sirika led a high-powered federal government delegation to Zamfara State to deliver President Muhammadu Buhari’s assurance that the abduction of 317 girls from Government Girls’ Science Secondary School, Jangebe, Zamfara State, would be the last of such incidents in the country.
