Shehu Dalhatu Tafoki, the lawmaker representing Faskari/Kankara/Sabuwa constituency, has decried the worsening attacks by bandits on his constituents.

He stated that people no longer feel safe in their homes as they live in constant fear.

According to him, residents of his constituents have been sacked from their homes due to the incessant attacks by criminal groups.

Tafoki, who communicated with journalists via telephone, expressed sorrow over the loss of lives, damage to property, and displacement of residents due to the frequent attacks, highlighting the significant impact on the affected population.

“I am deeply disturbed by the relentless attacks by bandits in our communities. The situation has become unbearable,”
Tafoki told Daily Trust.

The lawmaker added: “The fear and anxiety among the people are palpable. Many no longer feel safe in their own homes, with men often chosen to sleep elsewhere and women and children seeking refuge in neighbouring towns.”

While recognizing the endeavours of Governor Mallam Dikko Umaru Radda of Katsina State in dealing with the crisis, Tafoki called on all stakeholders, including national security agencies, to prioritize the safety of Nigerians.

Earlier, Tafoki presented a motion on matters of urgent public importance in the house, emphasizing the immediate necessity to address the widespread killings and abductions, referencing sections 33 and 41 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended, which uphold the right to life and freedom of movement.

He highlighted several recent attacks in the area, such as the incident involving wedding guests, where the kidnappers demanded a ransom exceeding N200 million, Naija News reports.
