Residents of Kusfa in Zaria, Kaduna state, organised a prayer session to ask for Allah’s intervention regarding the insecurity in the country.
The residents slaughtered two rams during the prayer. They asked Allah for help to win the war against kidnapping and banditry.
The prayer is coming a few days after the Emir of Zazzau, Ahmad Bamalli cried out that Zaria Emirate was under the siege of bandits.
While hosting a delegation of the heads of security agencies serving in Kaduna at his palace on Monday, June 14, the monarch said Zaria city and its surroundings are experiencing incessant attacks and abductions.
Bamalli stated this on Monday while hosting a delegation of the heads of security agencies serving in Kaduna at his palace.
The delegation was led by the state’s Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan.
The emir described the situation as unacceptable and urged the government to arrest the situation before it gets out of control.
He said despite the location of military formations and training schools in the emirate, the area is not secure.
“There are many villages where the residents cannot sleep because of gunshots and the village heads are crying profusely at the palace over the deteriorating security condition in their domain,” Bamalli said.
“This is how bad it is in some parts of the emirate.”
