The irate youths were said to have blocked the busy road with bonfire, stones and wood, insisting that nobody will pass until the government addresses the issue of insecurity situation in the area.

The residents expressed their anger that bandits had been picking people up from house to house without any intervention by the security agents in the area.

Despite the presence of the military barracks – Zuma Barracks – in the area the residents said they were helpless and had been unable to sleep well.

 

KanyiDaily had also reported how bandits killed the son of the Emir of Kontagora, Bashir Saidu Namaska, on his way to his father’s farm at Lioji village.
