Kaduna Lawmaker Raises Alarm Over Serial Attacks On Kajuru Communities


Hon. Usman Danlami Stingo, a member of the Kaduna State House of Assembly representing the Kajuru Local Government Constituency, has warned that if no immediate and serious action is taken to curtail bandit activities, the local government will be overtaken by criminal elements.

During the plenary session on Tuesday, Stingo moved a resolution on serial annihilation in Kajuru LGA, lamenting the ongoing killings in his constituency.

The lawmaker noted that kidnappings in the community began in 2017 and peaked in 2019, when many villages were invaded by terrorists, resulting in many casualties reported in the aftermath of the attacks.

“Another terrible occurrence occurred on March 11, 2019, when the Dogo Nnoma Community in Kajuru buried 71 individuals in one day as a result of terrorism, which has lasted to this day.

“On February 17, 2024, a man and his daughter were riding their motorcycle in Libere Village, Kajuru LGA. The bandits had assaulted communities in Kajuru LG and were returning with their victims when the man and his daughter ran into them. They stopped them, murdered the dad, burned the motorcycle, and instructed the daughter to return home and report, which she did,” Hon. Stingo recounted.

He also grieved that several people were burned alive in his electorate and that several properties had been destroyed as a result of the serial attacks.

The state legislator also stated that bandits kidnapped 61 individuals in the early hours of Tuesday in the Buda Hausa Community of Kajuru LGA.

“Just last night, in the early hours of Tuesday, March 12, 2024, 61 people—29 men and 32 women—were kidnapped from the Buda Hausa village.

“The situation is very pathetic in Kajuru, and sometimes, when we talk of them, people find it difficult to believe that we have been passing through hell,” Mr. Stingo added.

The senator also lamented the terrible impact of banditry on the lives and livelihoods of Kajuru residents and the rest of Kaduna State as well.

He raised concern that security authorities had yet to take prompt and decisive action to address security concerns in Kajuru, specifically, and Kaduna State as a whole.

The heartbroken legislator encouraged the Kaduna State House of Assembly to take action by involving the state’s security services in order to find a long-term solution to the problem.
