We Have Limited Manpower To Stop killings In Southern Kaduna -Army

Chukwuemeka Okonkwo, Commander of operation safe haven in Kaduna, has lamented that they have limited manpower to tackle Southern Kaduna killings.

He reveal this to reporters after a security meeting presided over by Governor Nasir el-Rufai.

Okonkwo said the army will deploy more soldiers in the area to tackle the “criminal elements” responsible for the killings and destruction in the area.

He said:

We have attacks on some communities and reprisal attacks.

You have Kataf youths, Fulani militias and the criminal elements of both sides.

Any incident is enough to spark off crisis in that area; there have been lingering disputes and animosities, banditry and cattle rustling there.

We have reviewed our operations.

The soldiers will be more robust in the days to come. If one or two attacks took place, we prevent three

If you know the area very well, the communities are far and disperse, they are several kilometres apart from each other.

The terrain is difficult to access with vehicles.

And we have limitation of manpower but of course you know that we are committed.

But be that as it may, we are going to get more troops.

We are strategising, we will deploy as much as possible to shorten our response time.

Perhaps, we used to respond a bit late, but if we had not responded, we could have had more casualties.
