Kaduna killings: Government must step up or... - Makarfi | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f

Former Governor of Kaduna State and a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi has condemned the recent killings in Gwaska, Kaduna State, warning that the situation could degenerate into a breakdown of law and order, should government fails to restore normalcy in the days ahead.

Makarfi lamented what he called the helplessness of the security agencies in taming the security challenges in parts of the country, even as he called for more deployment of men and materials to tackle the menace.

A statement issued by his media aide, Mukhtar Sirajo, noted: “Senator Makarfi believes that government exists principally to provide security to the people; failure to rise up to this responsibility is therefore a recipe for anarchy which we can ill afford now.

“Governments at all levels as well as agencies responsible must therefore restore people’s confidence by doing all it takes to not only secure the area and others so afflicted, but also ensure that the perpetrators are brought to book.

“The frequency, impotence as well as impunity with which bandits raid communities in some parts of the country and leave unchallenged is a source of worry for all patriotic Nigerians. The latest of such brazen violations of the peace and security of the people, which occurred in Gwaska of Birnin  Gwari Local Government Area of  Kaduna State, which itself was the second time under a week, is becoming one too many.

While commiserating with the Emir of Birnin Gwari, the Kaduna State governor and families of those who lost their lives, the PDP Presidential hopeful prayed God to grant the dead eternal rest.
