Kaduna State governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, has said security agents are on the trail of those instigating crisis in the southern senatorial part of the state.

He also said investigations have revealed plans to use Niger Delta militants to disguise as Fulani to attack people in the zone.

El-Rufai who spoke during a media chat on Wednesday night in Kaduna, said he was aware politicians were sponsoring the attacks and were benefitting from the crisis, asserting that they would be arrested and prosecuted to serve as deterrent to others.

The governor disclosed that plans were underway to establish two military formations in the Southern part as a way of ending the crisis, stressing that the state government got assurances of President Muhammadu Buhari, the Ministry of Defence and Chief of Army Staff on the request to site the military formations.
