The Emir of Zazzau, Ambassador Ahmad Nuhu Bamalli, on Monday lamented that the ancient city of Zaria and its environs is under siege despite its several military formations.
According to the Emir, residents are having sleepless nights due to abductions going on within Zaria and its environs.
Bamalli, who described the situation as unacceptable, urged government to take action, noting that the residents are now vulnerable to abductions.
The Emir, who spoke a visit by a delegation of security heads led by the State Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, expressed displeasure in the ugly development, saying although there were security formations and military training schools within the emirate, his people are not feeling safe.
Speaking during the visit, Aruwan said they were at the emir’s palace to build confidence and to commiserate with the emirate over the unfortunate incident at the Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic and neighboring communities.
He also assured that the state government was doing everything possible to protect the emirate and the state in general.
