The Kaduna State Government and Fulani leaders, as well as other stakeholders from the southern part of the state met on Friday over the disturbing insecurity in the area.
The Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, who met leaders of the Fulani community and others, said efforts to bring lasting peace to the area would be explored by the government.
Aruwan told the leaders that the gathering was in continuation of the government’s engagement efforts in pursuing peace in the state.
At the gathering, it was resolved that a vigilante group would be set up to complement the ‘Operation Safe Haven’ and the police operating along the Kaduna-Plateau border in the state.
The commissioner said, “We will continue to work towards sustainable peace and security in the state.
“Peace is very important and we have been going around the state meeting with critical stakeholders on the importance of peace and the need for all to recourse to the law. We would also complement the efforts of security agencies in enhancing the internal security of the state.”
The leaders commended the peace efforts of the government and agreed on the need to have a joint task force to supervise imposter who comes to their community to commit crimes.
