Banditry: Group urges FG to review security response system

Published

on

The Jam’iyyatu Ansariddeen (Attijjaniyya) (JAA), an Islamic organization has urged the Federal Government to review the nation’s security response system to curtail killings, kidnappings and destruction of properties by bandits in Kaduna and Katsina states.

National Secretary of the group, Sayyidi Yahaya, made the call in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja.

Yahaya said that the government’s intelligence gathering and response arrangement require a collective impact approach to curtail the deplorable security situation in some parts of the country.

He also called on the government to constantly scrutinize its operatives, particularly, those in charge of security, in order to tackle the potent challenge of internal and external sabotage against the efforts of the government to provide enduring security in the country.

“The JAA notes with deep anxiety, the growing concern of rampant and incessant killings, kidnappings and destruction of the property being perpetuated by bandits in several northern parts of the country, particularly in areas of Kaduna, Katsina, Niger, and the Sokoto States.

“A few days ago, the bandits attacked a number of villages in Sokoto East Senatorial District, killing, maiming, raping, robbing, and rustling cattle.

“Similarly, in Katsina State, they attacked Kankara, Batsari, Danmusa, Safana, and some other parts of the State with gusto and ‘devil-may-care’ attitude.

“Likewise, in Niger State there are incessant attacks on some villages and communities in Shiroro and Rafi local government areas on a more or less daily basis, turning the villagers into refugees in some bigger towns,” he said.

Yahaya, therefore, called on the government to appraise the situation and device a more proactive and clearly accountable approach to curtail the menace.

He explained that the actions could involve the ‘ Collective Impact Approach’ mechanism, utilizing the government, community leaders, and faith-based organizations while also putting in place measures to check-mate possible sabotage of the security efforts internally and externally as may be envisaged.

He said the JAA remained committed to supporting and partnering the government in addressing public challenges and in rendering good governance to the citizens as epitomized by the personality and leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari.

He also urged the concerned State Governments to take decent practical measures to integrate the Almajiri Education into the conventional educational system as a right and not a privilege.
