Kaduna Gov’t Considers Security Trust Fund

The Kaduna State Government said it is looking at the possibility of setting up a State Security Trust Fund as a means of collaborating with corporate organisations, the business community, industrialists, professional groups and other critical stakeholders towards enhancing material and logistic support to security forces, to frontally combat the challenge of teething insecurity in the State.

The governor said the establishment of the FOBs will greatly assist the expansion of campaigns against terrorists and bandits in frontline locations.

He, however, appealed to the military and the Police to step up their presence in the Tudun Biri general area of Igabi local government area of the State in view of threats arising from efforts to rebuild the community after the unfortunate incident of accidental drone attack last year.

Governor Sani said: “The purpose of this meeting is to brainstorm on the situations in certain areas of interest, notably Kauru, Kajuru, Birnin Gwari, Igabi, Chikun, Kachia, Kagarko and the Kaduna-Abuja Road. There was security on the Kaduna-Abuja Road for about 18 months, until the sudden unfortunate and disturbing attack and kidnapping. The recent occurrences on that axis clearly indicate the re-opening of a front on that route, and this points us strongly to the need for renewed focus and coordination.

“You are also aware of the attacks on citizens and military personnel along the Kaduna-Birnin Gwari Road, and in the Birnin Gwari general area. Bandits and terrorists have exploited gaps – particularly around Maganda, Kuyello and other villages surrounding Buruku, Udawa, Damba, Kuriga, Polewire and other flash points – to carry out ambushes on citizens, as well as security forces attempting to respond to distress calls.
