According to Senator Musa, the insecurity in the senatorial district has attained an alarming proportion in the last few weeks, a development that means that the bandits are testing the will and capacities of the Federal and Niger State governments to secure the lives and property of Nigerians, which he believed the President Bola Tinubu’s administration will deal with the criminals ruthlessly in the coming days.

He noted that the saddest aspect of the saga is that the victims are being subjected to inhuman treatments with some chained together to forstal their escape from their captors.
