DAILY FILE – Senator representing Kaduna central, Shehu Sani, on Monday says the northern Nigeria has lost its peace and freedom to kidnappers and bandits.
Sani, said Faye Mooney, British tourist, killed in Kajuru local government area of Kaduna, was a victim of propaganda.
Mooney was one of two persons shot dead at Kajuru castle on Friday.
She lost her life during an exchange of gun fire between police officers guarding the castle and suspected bandits.
In a statement on Monday, Sani said Mooney was a victim of the propaganda of those who falsely advertised the state as safe.
“Her Killing reflects the danger and disorder that has become of the crime of Kidnappings in Kaduna state and other states in northern Nigeria,” the senator said.
“Faye Mooney is a martyr and a hero who believed in us and we as a state failed to protect her. Faye Mooney was lost to a failure of leadership and the perilous collapse of security in the North West.
“She was a victim of the propaganda of those who falsely advertised the state that everything is well. Faye Mooney’s death was needless if those in the position of executive authority woke up and rose up to the challenge of insecurity in the state.
“Kaduna has moved from its known motto as a center of learning to a center of Abduction.Trains and planes have become the only safest means of transportation to and from the state and even when you arrived you are not safe,” he said.
“Kaduna like Zamfara and Katsina state are under siege of dangerous armed kidnappers. Kidnappers stalks and prowls our land,the clouds of death and ransom hangs over our heads.
“When Violence,deaths and disorder reigns supreme and continues unabated,it’s either The government failed or the nation is failing or both.”
