The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Tajudeen Abbas, has demanded an immediate investigation of the bandits’ attack at the Kofar Gayan area of Zaria that led to the killing of two persons on Saturday night.
The suspected bandits reportedly invaded the area, shot sporadically, and unsuccessfully attempted to kidnap some residents.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Musa Abdullahi, the Speaker condemned the development and described the deaths as unfortunate.
The statement noted that the recurring attacks in parts of Zaria in Kaduna North Senatorial District were unacceptable and insisted that a thorough investigation must be carried out this time to unravel the circumstances behind the endless attacks.
He therefore urged security agents to up their game in the protection of lives and property, which is their primary responsibility, stressing that citizens, wherever they may be, should be safe to go about their businesses at any time of the day.
