The military does not have enough manpower to tackle the killings in the southern part of Kaduna, according to Chukwuemeka Okonkwo, commander of operation safe haven in the state.

Chukwuemeka Okonkwo while speaking with reporters after a security meeting presided over by Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna, Okwokwo said the military is strategising on how to boost security.

He said;

Quote
“What we have were attacks on some communities and reprisal attacks. You have Kataf youths, Fulani militias and the criminal elements of both sides,” Okonkwo said.

“Any incident is enough to spark off crisis in that area; there have been lingering disputes and animosities, banditry and cattle rustling there.

“We have reviewed our operations. We are going to close ranks. We are going to be more robust in the days to come. If one or two attacks took place, three were prevented. If you know the area very well, the communities are far and dispersed, they are several kilometres apart from each other. The terrain is difficult to access with vehicles.

“And we have limitation of manpower but of course you know that we are committed. But be that as it may, we are going to get more troops. We are strategising, we will deploy as much as possible to shorten our response time. Perhaps, we used to respond a bit late, but if we had not responded, we could have had more casualties.”

The commander also called on communities in Southern Kaduna to embrace peace, adding that a conducive atmosphere will be created for them to meet, dialogue and resolve issues amicably.

Why are we sending the Army? We should send FSAS to take care of the situation. If they set up toll gates there, the killings will stop.
