‘Bad eggs responsible for Kaduna attacks’

Kaduna State Government yesterday linked the security challenges in some parts of the state to the activities of criminals and warned that “bad eggs” must not be shielded with religious and ethnic identities.

The state government stressed that such criminals must be identified and handled through provisions contained in the law, adding that “criminality is not related to religion, ethnicity or any affiliations, but is simply borne out of wicked intentions of the villainous elements amongst us.”

The State Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, who made the submission during a security engagement on the renewed violence in Kajuru Local Government Area of the state warned communities to avoid resorting to self-help to settle scores, but rather should follow the provisions of the law.

“If a Fulani man while grazing comes under attack, they must not take the laws into their hands but rather they must recourse to the law and government.

“Similarly, should an Adara man, in the course of farming and other activities come under attack, they must recourse to the law and not engage in jungle justice. This is not a banana republic,” he warned.

He said despite several security meetings to broker peace between the Fulani and Adara, both parties had consistently exonerated their people and make counter-accusations on the crisis.

Also speaking, the State Commissioner of Police, Umar Musa Muri promised to look into issues of logistics and personnel in the area, adding that Kajuru will be highly considered in the posting of 10,000 policemen who recently passed out.

Earlier, the Executive Chairman of Kajuru local government, Hon. Cafra Caino reminded the gathering on the existing ban on all hunting expeditions and pleaded to the state government to construct roads in some interior parts of the local government to aid security personnel to have access to communities during emergencies
