The Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Lucky Irabor, has warned terrorists troubling the Southern part of Kaduna State that their days are numbered.

 

Irabor also restated the resolve of Nigeria’s military to restore peace in Southern Kaduna.

 

He made this known in Kafanchan on Thursday during a peace meeting with stakeholders involved in the Southern Kaduna crisis, NAN reports.

 

Southern Kaduna has become a hotbed of deadly attacks by terrorists in recent months.

 

In some quarters in Southern Kaduna, over 100 persons were killed following repeated attacks on several communities in the area.

 

Also, the terrorists recently attacked a train on the Abuja-Kaduna route at about 7:43pm, the Nigerian Railway Corporation said 398 tickets were bought, saying that only 362 passengers were validated.

 

As a result, many condemned the spate of insecurity across the country and called on the regime of President Muhammadu to take action to mitigate further attacks by the terrorist groups.

 

“We are committed to ensuring that peace is restored in this part of the country,” Irabor said.

 

“However, for those who do not want to heed to our appeal for peace and who think that violence is what they need to unleash on us, I am here to tell them that their days are numbered.

 

“If the peace in Southern Kaduna is disrupted, the peace in Kaduna and indeed the peace in Nigeria will be disrupted because Kaduna is central to the existence of Nigeria,” he stated.

 

“You can have all the personnel and equipment in the world, if there is no willingness amongst the people to live in peace, it will count for nothing.”

 

“So, we need to start looking at ways beyond military deployment to solve this crisis.

 

“This is not something I have authority to make a decision on, but I can assure you I will bring it up as a point during the national Security Council meeting for further consideration,” he said.
