We have limited manpower to tackle Southern Kaduna killings - Nigerian Army

Okonkwo who spoke to reporters after a security meeting presided over by Governor Nasir el-Rufai, said more soldiers will be deployed in the area to tackle the “criminal elements” responsible for the killings and destruction in the area.

He said;

“What we have were 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. We are going to close ranks. We are going to be more robust in the days to come. If one or two attacks took place, three were prevented. If you know the area very well, the communities are far and dispersed, 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.”

He also called on all Southern Kaduna residents to embrace peace, as a conducive atmosphere will be created for them to meet, dialogue and resolve issues amicably.
