Minister of Defence, Major-General Mansur Dan Ali has said politicians and traditional rulers in the North are responsible for the present increase in insecurity, just as Buhari blasted the various murders by cult groups in Rivers State and urged the law enforcement agencies to see to its end.
He also criticized the recent attacks in Kaduna State, which resulted in the killing of 20 members of the Adara community.
A statement from Dan Ali read, “despite the concerted efforts of the Armed Forces and other security (agencies), some unpatriotic persons including highly placed traditional rulers in the areas were identified as helping the bandits with intelligence to perpetuate their nefarious actions or to compromise military operations.”
21 persons died while 50 cattle were injured in an attack by armed bandits in Banono and Anguwan Aku in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna on Monday.
