The Leadership of the Northern Youth Assembly of Nigeria (NYAN) has joined well meaning Nigerians in condemning the continuous killing of natives in Southern Kaduna, Central Nigeria. The group outlined that these killings have intensified in recent times in Southern Kaduna, expressing worry over the state of security across the country.
This position was made known through Deputy Speaker, Rt Hon Audu A. Yibeikas who spoke on behalf of the Northern group in Abuja on Monday while interacting with journalists on the state of security in the country, stating that the country’s leadership is failing in the understanding of remote issues in the violence between herding and farming communities hence all temporary measures can’t give longterm results. He called on the Nigerian Military to set up permanent stations within isolated communities especially in Southern Kaduna in order to have lasting solutions.
Audu expressed worry that despite efforts by the Federal Government in fighting insecurity, the matter seems to be getting out of hand. Audu said that security forces in Nigeria have the best of trainings and can give their best in ending this unfortunate security problem.
He called on the Federal Government and the Kaduna State Government to be more practical in solving the problems ravaging Southern Kaduna and Nigeria at large.
