The Senator representing Kaduna Central, Senator Shehu Sani has said, the People in Birnin Gwari and areas of zamfara State are living in perpetual fear and perpetual funeral service.
The Senator stated this on his twitter handle.
According to him” They have moved their hope away from the hollow assurances of their Government to the consolations of their faith and their God.
Reacting on Danjuma’s self defense called, he said,” When Danjuma spoke about Self Defence,you threw spears at him;When the Emirs spoke about self defense,you threw flowers at them.Fairness is that you either throw all of them to the crocodiles or you adorn on them crowns of Gold for their courage to speak out.You can’t give the former a slap and the later a pat,when both of them told us how naked we live.But I don’t think the Emirs need a pat or flowers, they need oxygen for their people to breath in Peace .For a people living on the crosshairs,Shield is life and Shield is God
“Our countless motions in the parliament on security matters have become comets that only fly,flashes and fadeaway .You can be forgiven for ignoring the truth that comes from your foe but not when it also comes from your friends. If you cannot comfort or console the bereaved,don’t ask them of decorum in their tears, ” He said.
He further added,” I don’t share the view that ALL our serving soldiers who are making sacrifices are colluding with criminals,but we cannot rule out cases of betrayal of duty and of trust in some very few. We must appreciate the heroes in the military who sacrificed their lives for us and left behind widows and orphans.
“Self defense represent the failure of the state and its apparatus but it also represent the truth in bed with tragedy. More is needed to protect our people.
