He decried the insecurity in Southern Kaduna, especially Godogodo Chiefdom and urged the Federal Government to give marching orders to security operatives to engage the attackers in their hide outs.

“The Federal Government should direct the soldiers to enter into the bush and fish out the attackers instead of operating just on the main road,” he said.

The lawmaker, who expressed concern over the untold hardship displaced persons were exposed to, also urged government to as a matter of urgency provide relief materials to cushion the effect of the crisis.

According to him, the declaration of a state of emergency will stem the tide and promote mutual trust and understanding amongst diverse communities in the area.
