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

Yahaya Idris Ahmed

His administration, he stated, has, however, changed the situation as kogi state is now a safe haven for citizens and prospective investors within and outside Nigeria.

Gov Abubakar S. Bello Blasts His SA As Niger Fishermen Identify Bandit’s Route.

 

Fish sellers operating at the bank of River Kaduna near Zugeru town in Niger state; have taken Governor Abubakar Sani Bello to route used by bandits to launch dreaded attacks on surrounding communities without the presence of police and other security agencies.

The governor was said to have stopped at the spot while returning from a function in Mariga local government of the state for mind rubbing discussion before the fishermen dramatically showed him the bandit’s route.

One of them who identified himself as Adamu, speaking in Hausa said, “This is the route the bandits usually follow to attacks us. They come through this route and go back through this same route. They have no other route, this is the only route.”

The governor asked the people if they had reported this to the security agents in the area to enable them take action.

He was however shocked when they replied that no security agent had ever come to do any investigation since the incidents of kidnap started in the area.

The governor, apparently surprised, turned to his special adviser on security, Brigadier General Iman (rtd), who was in the governor’s entourage to respond asking him if he was aware that no security agent had visited the area despite series of bandits attacks as alleged by the people.

However, the security adviser responded with an explanation that the sophisticated weapons being paraded by the bandits are responsible for the inability of the security agencies to go after the bandits.

Governor Bello was said to be furious with his adviser on security asking him to explain sources of security report he filed to Governor’office.

He said, “If no security agent has come here to get first hand information on these attacks, then where are they getting their security reports from. That means I am being fed with fake security reports from you.”

“So where have you being getting your security reports from, or you just sat down in one place and write security reports”, he queried adding that “what this means is that the people have been left alone, they have been left to their faith. Am highly disappointed from what I am hearing today.”
