Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Muideen Olaniyi

A for­mer deputy Se­nate leader, Se­na­tor Ab­dul Ahmed Ningi, has raised an alarm over se­cu­rity breaches in Ningi Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area of Bauchi State, say­ing that crim­i­nals are ter­ror­is­ing and kid­nap­ping in­hab­i­tants of the area.

Ningi, speak­ing in Abuja, yesterday, said that there was se­ri­ous se­cu­rity chal­lenge in Ningi and its en­vi­rons.

“We have this per­sis­tent se­cu­rity breach,” he said.

“My peo­ple are kid­napped all over the place by crim­i­nals who are housed by the vast for­est sur­round­ing the town.”

He said that the crim­i­nals were ei­ther those run­ning from YobeMaiduguri axis or Zam­fara State be­cause of the on­go­ing mil­i­tary op­er­a­tions there.

Se­na­tor Ningi said that he sus­pected con­nivance be­tween these hood­lums and lo­cal crim­i­nals, call­ing on the fed­eral gov­ern­ment to nip the im­pend­ing se­cu­rity chal­lenges in the bud by draft­ing mil­i­tary per­son­nel to the area to deal with the sit­u­a­tion.
