Security Update On Kajuru LGA:
We have once again been set back in our confidence building effort and peace engagements after Tudu village in Agwala Dutse general area was attacked this morning. It is confirmed that nine lives were lost in the attack. A detailed inventory of casualties is being taken.
My heart goes out to all the families affected; may God grant the souls of the victims eternal rest.
The position of Kajuru LGA remains that all communities must recourse to the law as against engaging in killings and reprisals.
I also passionately implore all and sundry to unite to win this war against criminality in our Local Government Council. The council will not relent in its commitment to end the violence but success can only be achieved with the support of every peace loving citizen.
Hon. Cafra Caino
Kajuru Local Government Council.
