PMB – Kaduna Killings Is Fuelled By Politics And Revenge

President Muhamadu Buhari has denounced the recent attacks in Kaduna State which has led to the loss of lives and properties in the last few days.

 

In a statement released by presidential spokesperson Garba Shehu on Tuesday, July 21, Buhari stated that the complicated nature of things has made the resolution of the crisis in the state difficult even though there is a comprehensive security structure.

 

President Buhari also declared that the increased killings in Kaduna are fuelled by politics and revenge.

The statement read;

 

“The Presidency wishes to state that the problem of insecurity in Southern Kaduna State is more complicated than many people are willing to admit.

“From available records, Southern Kaduna enjoys comprehensive security deployments, including the Army, Special Forces of both the Army and the Air Force, surveillance aircraft by the Air Force and mobile police units that are on the ground on a 24-hour basis to forestall criminality and keep the peace.

“But unlike other parts of the country, the problem of Southern Kaduna is more complicated than many critics are ready to acknowledge and understand.

“From available security records, the problem in Southern Kaduna is an evil combination of politically-motivated banditry, revenge killings and mutual violence by criminal gangs acting on ethnic and religious grounds.

“It is a situation in which one criminal group will kill a member of another criminal group out of ethnic and religious motivations,  which in turn leads to the eruption of revenge and counter-revenge, thereby making the job of the security personnel deployed to protect lives more difficult,” he said.

“We note that revenge and counter-revenge only creates a circle of violence, thereby making everyone else unsafe, especially innocent people.

“What is required is for the local authorities to radically improve their intelligence capabilities so that security agencies will be alerted in a timely manner to enable them forestall any planned attack.”
