ABUJA, Nigeria – Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Alhaji Uba Sani has warned criminals, kidnappers attacking innocent passengers along Kaduna-Abuja road to repent of their evils as the government will no longer accept acts of criminality in the state.
The Senator who condemned the renewed attacks on communities in Igabi and Kajuru Local Government Areas and the repeated bandit hold-ups along the Kaduna – Abuja in a statement he signed on Thursday, reminded criminals that, “many days are for the thieves, but one day is for the owner of properties that have been stolen”
According to Senator Sani “A situation where criminals with access to instruments of violence operate with ease is certainly a major cause for concern to anybody interested in the security and welfare of the people.
He emphasized the continued siege on the Abuja–Kaduna major expressway by bandits and warned that criminal elements should not be allowed to “annex” a strategic gateway in the country without adequate measures put in place to tackle them.
“Time has come to take the fight to the bandits and kidnappers and reassert the Federal Government’s monopoly of the coercive instruments of state. Enough is indeed enough,” he said.
Uba Sani also pleaded with the Federal Government to work with the Kaduna State Government to uproot the bandits from Igabi and Kajuru Local Governments Areas.
“Federal Government should carry out a one-month intensive operation on Kaduna–Abuja Road to degrade the bandits and kidnappers.
“Anybody, no matter how highly placed, found to be aiding and abetting criminality along the road should be brought to book,” he said.
