Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has expressed worries over hardship caused by insecurity in his state.
Speaking during the presentation of the Kaduna State Security Incidents Report for the Second Quarter of 2021, Governor El-Rufai said that the security report presented had sobering statistics on the state of security in Kaduna State.
“The data on security incidents in the state during the second quarter of 2021 reflects the real agony of our citizens and communities, their pains and losses, and the fears and anxiety that have created considerable distress,” he said.
He further noted what the Kaduna State Government and the security agencies were doing to contain the situation.
El-Rufai however said that the investments in security were yet to manifest in the defeat or at least the considerable degradation of the criminals.
He promised his administration’s commitment to continue supporting security agencies and also appealed for Federal Government support.
The governor sympathised with the people of Kaduna State and security agents for all the pains and sorrow caused by the situation. “I assure you that we are working hard to solve this problem and it is our solemn duty to do so,” he pledged.
