Senator Ibrahim Abdullahi Gobir, representing Sokoto east Senatorial District in the senate has condemned in a strong terms the recent resurgence of banditry in his constituency in Sokoto state.
The attack led to the loss of over 74 innocent lives in villages of Kusama, Aduwa, Gangara, Yarbulutu, Garki and Kuzafa in Sabon Birni local government council of the state.
The senator said the activities of the dreaded armed bandits in the state were barbaric, inhumane and capable of mass destruction. He remarked that it was crippling both social and economical potential of good citizens of the state and the Sokoto state government.
The Senator who spoke through his media aide, Malam Kabiru Muhammad Sokoto, in a statement in Gusau said Wednesday that he will do everything humanly possible to ensure the federal government assists Sokoto state government with all the necessary proactive steps to curb banditry in the state.
“Indeed, I must commend the Nigerien security operatives for their quick intervention in stopping the bandit’s attacks in Sabon Birni local government council of my state recently and there is need for collaboration with Nigerian troops to secure our state, so that relative peace can be restored as quickly as possible,” Senator Gobir stated.
