I advocate a stoppage to killings in Zaria, other parts of Nigeria– Speaker Abbas

The Speaker of the House of Representatives Abbas Tajudeen, has condemned the attack by suspected bandits on Anguwar Dankali community in Zaria Local Government Area of Kaduna State, that reportedly left four people killed and five injured.

In a press statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Musa Krishi, the Speaker said:

“enough is enough” on the killings in Zaria and other parts of the country. I urge the security agencies to “descend on the killers.”

The bandits reportedly attacked the community, shooting nine people and abducting five others, who later escaped on the arrival of security operatives that engaged the attackers in a gun duel.

While describing the latest attack as one too many, Abbas commiserated with the families of the victims, as well as the people and government of Kaduna State.

He recalled with pain, how some of his constituents were similarly killed in an attack earlier in August.

The Speaker insisted that the lives of Nigerians must be protected and safeguarded as provided in the country’s constitution.
