Alh. Ibrahim Tudu, a member representing Bakura constituency in Zamfara House of Assembly, has appealed to the Federal Government to deploy more security to tackle banditry and kidnapping in the state.
Tudu, in an interview with some reporters on Saturday in Gusau, condemned the continued abduction of people in his constituency unabated.
The lawmaker called for more security operatives to the state “to flush out the remnants of the recalcitrant bandits who are perpetrating this evil act in the state and making life difficulty for the citizens”.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that gunmen had on Aug. 16 abducted 15 students and four staff of the College of Agriculture and Animal Science, Bukura, after killing a Police instructor and two security guards of the college.
The gunmen had demanded for N350 million for the release of the students and the college staff.
Again, the bandits, on Aug. 20, at about 2.30 a.m. abducted about 60 persons in Rini community also in Bakura local government, as confirmed by the police in Zamfara.
Tudu regretted that the repeated incidents in his constituency had become a source of concern to him and residents of the state.
He, therefore, appealed to the federal government to deploy more security to area and the state in general to tackle the challenge.
The legislator also urged his constituents to support security operatives by volunteering useful information that could prevent security breaches. (NAN)
