Shehu Sani, the senator representing Kaduna Central has stated that the present administration is yet to end killings in some parts of the country because the victims are poor.
He wrote “The indifference of the ruling political establishment to end the ceaseless violence & killings in the country is based on the fact that the victims are the poor and the peasants in rural areas.”
No fewer than 27 persons were killed and several houses set ablaze after suspected bandits attacked Gwaska village in Brinin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State on Saturday.
The attack came barely a week after nine local miners were killed by gunmen at Janruwa village in Brinin Gwari.
The armed bandits, who reportedly came in from Zamfara State, surrounded Gwaska up to Kuiga village around 2.30pm and killed nine persons, mostly children.
