The ACF, Arewa Consultative Forum, has expressed great concern over the rising insecurity in the country’s northern part.
The ACF condemned in strong terms the endless killings in the North.
Emmanuel Yawe, the Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF spokesman, urged President Buhari to live up to his promise he made when taking his oath of office.
The Forum expressed concern that gunmen invaded Ahamadu Bello University, Zaria, Kaduna State at 12:50 pm and abducted three family members.
The statement noted that the daughter and wife, a university worker, escaped with the help 0f the policemen; following a gun battle between the kidnappers and the police, the worker was taken away by the bandits.
Remember that nine students of the university who were abducted were released on Sunday.
The students from the Department of French traveled to Lagos for a program at the NFLV, Nigerian French Language Village in Badagry, when they were abducted along the Abuja-Kaduna road last Sunday by gunmen.
While reviewing the North’s kidnapping cases, the Arewa Consultative Forum expressed anger over the spate of insecurity in the region.
The Forum pointedly directed the anger at President Muhammadu Buhari over the sundry attacks by bandits in the region recently.
The statement also condemned Muhammad Dingyadi, the Police Affairs Minister, for saying that bandits’ activities had been checked in the North.
It stated that there was no need to call on President Muhammadu Buhari to live up to his oath of office, adding that he knows more than anybody else the implications of swearing on the Quran and refusing to honor the promise to the Almighty.
The Forum said they were only for the umpteenth time conveying the anger and frustrations of many northerners to him so that he would do the needful and speedily too.
“It is getting too late,” the statement noted.
