Kaduna Killings: Killer Herdsmen Are Terrorists – Senator Shehu Sani
Senator Shehu Sani, representing Kaduna Central has described the killers of about 45 innocent people in Kaduna State at the weekend as terrorists but not bandits as being reported.
He said via his twitter handle that Herdsmen who commit the massacre in Benue and Taraba and ‘Bandits’ who commit the massacre in Zamfara and Birnin Gwari in Kaduna state, are nothing but terrorists; except if we want to call a spade a pestle or a spoon.
Sani said that he would support the President on the floor of the Senate to fund and equip the DSS, Police and Civil Defence, as he did to the Military so that we can bring an end to all the excuses now ‘produced daily in an industrial-scale.’
According to him, the indifference of the ruling political establishment to end the ceaseless violence & killings in the country is based on the fact that the victims are the poor and the peasants in rural areas.
“Again and again, I will continue to raise the tragic situation of Birnin Gwari on the floor of the Senate until it touches the conscience of those responsible for its security to prioritize human lives over 2019 politics. Mass Burial has become ‘a daily ritual’ in Birnin Gwari. We must admit the fact that the police and the army have nothing much to work with to enable them to confront the danger and the superior firepower of the armed bandits,” he said.
