Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai yesterday apologised to the people of the state, and especially the communities that were attacked at the weekend for his failure to fully protect them.
He made the apology when he visited communities that were attacked by bandits in Igabi and Giwa councils, saying there would be no negotiation with bandits.
El-Rufai confirmed that the bandits killed over 50 persons, including children, women and old people, adding that the communities are, Kerewa, Ungwan Musa and Zariyawa, among others.
He said, “I also came to apologise for failure to protect you fully, we are doing our best to minimise such incidents, you should continue to forgive us.”
“But we are doing the best we can and we are hoping that banditry will be addressed because security personnel are on ground to manage the situation.
“In Kaduna, we have vast land and if the security agents close one area, they attack another area. It is the duty of my administration to wipe out the attackers.
