Senator Shehu Sani has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to secure Kaduna State before his retirement in 2023.
While lamenting the spike in killings, Sani who is the former Senator, representing the Central District of Kaduna, noted that more people have been killed and abducted in Kaduna than in the war-ravaged Libya and Yemen put together.
He said bandits killed about 1,192 people last year across the state.
In a tweet, the former Senator wrote: “That bandits killed 1,192 and kidnapped over three thousand in Kaduna last year alone, outpaced the number of people killed and abducted in Yemen and Libya.
“If this is the state the President wants to retire and settle, he must secure it first.”
Kaduna is one of the states that have experienced a high level of banditry activities.
Religious leaders, students, commuters have been abducted and killed by bandits in Kaduna, despite the heavy presence of security structures.
