For The Attention Of Engineer AA Sule, Executive Governor Nasarawa state.

Sir,

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

We the Egbira people of Nasarawa state hereby inform you that there is an ongoing collaboration to annihilate us by the combined team of terrorists and military personnel deployed to the area

Our concern is that any time alarm is raised on kidnapping or attack it takes them time to respond and if they eventually do, they will be reluctant and even threaten us not to take any action against the invaders.

We continue to wonder whether they are here to protect us against aggression or supervise such.

The military personnel deployed to Toto LGA to us are there only to supervise the criminalities going on in the Toto local government area.

While kidnappings and armed robberies  persist in the area, military men deployed to the area continue to shield perpetrators by stopping the locals from resisting attacks.

Kidnappers and robbers willfully invade Toto town and made away with families and resident neighbours could not resist due to the cover given to the assailants by the government security agents.

While the soldiers will not prevent the criminalities, they equally will not allow the people to resist the attack and kidnap of their loved ones.

What the military personnel are doing is purely business, because they are in the position to halt kidnappings, but will stop people from resisting. While the kidnappers carry sophisticated weapons to carryout their crimes, the people even with ordinary stones are prevented from resisting thereby giving the bandits the encouragement to be harassing Toto community.

Sir, we are ready to die in the hands of the soldiers instead of the kidnappers.

They should allow us to defend ourselves and not prevent us and allowing bandits to succeed which invariably is a defeat of the military.

We are ready to face the bandits and kidnappers if the soldiers will allow us. We don’t need their protection since they have failed in doing so.

Soldiers are paving ways to bandits to attack us. They have not stopped any kidnapper from taking our people rather they stop us from resisting them.

If the much tauted community policing is a serious affair, then the locals should be allowed to defend themselves.

This is very urgent

Yours faithfully

Investigation revealed that the invaders are those bandits displaced from the north east and northwest where they have been over powered by the security forces.

It was based on the resurgence of kidnappings and other criminal activities that Governor Yahaya Bello, earlier this week, called on the Federal government to establish a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) base in the State.
