Concerned over the recurring killings by unknown armed men in Zamfara state, the House of Representatives has called on the federal government to provide special security attention to the state by providing a coordinated and sustainable security intervention, involving but not limited to land and air military operations; State Security Services and other security agencies.
The call was contained in a motion of urgent national importance on the urgent call on federal government to provide security to Zamafara state sponsored by Hon. Abubakar Husaini Moriki in which he noted that the state is facing various security challenges ranging from kidnapping, cattle rustling, community attacks and general banditry activities.
Moriki who recalled recent killings of about forty people on Wednesday, 14th February, 2018in Birane and Mashema districts of Zurmi Local Government by unknown armed bandit, noted that previous killings had been brought before the House and many resolutions to address the situations were adopted and implemented by both Zamfara state government as well as the federal government but regretted that the implementation was not consistent and could not be sustained thus leaving the state vulnerable to further attacks.
He also noted that recent attacks in Shinkafi and Zurmi claimed no fewer than one hundred lives and property worth millions of naira were lost and several persons kidnapped.
The lawmaker expressed worry that the development has negatively impacted on the economic wellbeing of the people of the state as businesses have collapsed and farms abandoned due to fear.
In adopting the motion, the House also resolved to send a delegation to visit and condole the people of Birane and Mashema in Zurmi LGA, the people and government of the state.
It also urged the national emergency Management Agency NEMA, through its committee on NEMA to send relief materials to families of the victims.
