Fulani Bandits gaining ground, will soon take over Kaduna state

Residents of Kaduna raised the alarm on Saturday about the rising tide of armed Fulani attacks in the state and its surroundings.

They claim that given the bandits’ rapid advance, they will soon proclaim one of their leaders as the state’s governor.

Bandits have more advanced weapons than security personnel, according to Musa Abilewa, a former chief security officer for the Kauru Local Government Area.

He claimed that by the time they name their governor, El-Rufai might resign as governor of Kaduna because when bandits attack the military or any other security personnel, they will all flee for safety.

Since most attacks take place in villages and communities, the locals demanded that there be a security presence there rather than just in the city. They claimed that some bandits terrorized, abducted, and raped locals using these communities’ lax security.

Mr. Silas Dogo, the community leader of Idon, Kajuru LGA, claims that bandits target his community whenever they want and that there isn’t a single security post there.

Additionally, Jonathan Asakede, a resident of Kajuru LGA’s Kallah community, claimed that many women had been sexually assaulted by bandits because no single female abducted by bandits, whether married or not, is exempt from this crime.
