Insecurity: Shehu Sani bemoans increasing rate of banditry in Kajuru

On Sunday, former federal lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, provided insight into the actions of terrorists in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

Senator Sani explained on his social media handle that the residents of Kajuru now endure the presence of bandits and terrorists on a daily basis.

He further revealed that the Kaduna State Government wrongly arrested the leaders and elders of the Adara ethnic group and imprisoned them following the killings by terrorists.

This incident occurred approximately five years ago.

Senator Sani depicted a horrific picture of the terrorists’ activities in the region, including the abduction of more than 50 farmers.

Three years ago, the Emir of Kajuru was also kidnapped and released after a ransom was paid.

Senator Sani also highlighted that the paramount ruler of the Adara ethnic group, Agom Adara Maiwada Galadima, coincidentally lost his life after a meeting with an unnamed State Governor.

He wrote, “Kajuru LG is one of the ‘favourite hotspots’ for terrorists in Kaduna State.
“Few months ago, over 50 farmers were kidnapped. Three years ago, the Emir of Kajuru was kidnapped and released after ransom was paid. It’s also the LG that hosts the Bethel Baptist High School, where students were kidnapped in 2021.

“In 2018, the paramount ruler of the Adara ethnic group, Agom Adara Maiwada Galadima was killed after meeting with the state Governor. Some 5 years ago, the Kaduna state government unjustly arrested the leaders and elders of the Adara ethnic groups and kept them in prison after their people were killed by terrorists.The latest one now has 42 kidnapped. In Kajuru, they live and survive each day with Bandits in the day and terrorists in the night.”
