The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, on Tuesday said he is deeply worried by the hardship caused by security challenges in the state.
Bandits over the week have attacked hundreds of residents across the state, while many have been killed.
El-Rufai while speaking during the presentation of the Kaduna State Security Incidents Report for the Second Quarter of 2021, said the security report presented had sobering statistics on the state of security in the state.
“The data on security incidents in the state during the second quarter of 2021 reflects the real agony of our citizens and communities, their pains and losses, and the fears and anxiety that have created considerable distress,” he said.
According to the Kaduna State Governor, the report also revealed the plan of the state government to contain the situation.
He, however, lamented that the considerable investments in security are yet to manifest in the defeat, or at least the considerable degradation of the criminals.
El-Rufai stated that his administration would continue to support security agencies.
He appealed to the residents of Kaduna State, to remain law-abiding, and to uphold peace in their communities.
He sympathised with the people and security agents for all the pains and sorrow caused by the situation.
“I assure you that we are working hard to solve this problem and it is our solemn duty to do so,” he pledged
