It’s clear FG can’t protect its citizens –Sen Sani

A member of the Nigerian Senate representing Kaduna Central, Senator Shehu Sani, has bemoaned what he says is the inability of the government to protect the lives and properties of the people of southern Kaduna, who are continously being butchered by suspected Fulani herdsmen.

The senator who expressed pains with the carnage going on the place cried, “It is unfortunate that Southern Kaduna has become a slaughter house and a cemetery.”

Senator Sani expressed these feelings when he paid a solidarity visit to Senator Danjuma La’ah, who represents Kaduna South at the Senate, consoling him to take heart with the activities of the blood sucking herdsmen.

He said, “Southern Kaduna killings is a reality in Nigeria and northern part of this country in particular of what has been happening for years. It is very clear the government is unable to protect lives and properties of its citizens.”

According to Senator Sani, “The way out of this mess is the need for security presence in all the villages and towns in Southern Kaduna. There is also need for civilian JTF where the communities will fully involve fund and support to protect their own communities.”

He further stated that there was need for an immediate action to nip the activities of these herdsmen killing innocent people.

“The tragedy in Southern Kaduna is also translating to Niger State which is close to Abuja. So you can see the danger of these killings to other cities in the country,” he said.

Sani also called for an economic master plan for Southern Kaduna to address the neglect, abandonment, poverty and underdevelopment that has seriously ravage the zone for a very long time.

“The government cannot be seen to have done enough until and unless these killings stop. The Federal Government must provide the necessary environment,” he added.
