He lamented that the attack, suspected to have been carried out by terrorists who have continued to invade and displace hapless and defenceless communities unprovoked with impunity, has become a regular affair in the communities around the local government.

The governorship candidate urged the Kaduna state government to act fast against the perpetrators of last Saturday’s inhumanity against man to serve as deterrent to other criminal elements in the society, and to forestall reprisal in other communities.

Asake also said that the security agencies must swing into action immediately by arresting and prosecuting those criminal bandits suspected to have murdered the 17 villagers in Ungwan Wakili of Zangon Kataf LGA.

According to him, it is only when the long arms of the law is seen to have acted against criminality that criminals would fear committing crimes.

The LP candidate appealed to the various communities in the local government to live in peace and harmony irrespective of ethnicity and religion, saying this is the only panacea to development.
