Hausa-Fulani Community of Zangon Kataf Urban District Elders, Stakeholders Forum has proposed for the establishment of permanent Army barracks in Zangon Kataf Urban District as a way of ending the attacks and killings of innocent people in the area.

A statement issued by the forum on wednesday signed by its Chairman Danbabala Tanko Zango made available to newsmen condemned the renewed attacks and killings of villagers in Zangon Kataf villages by suspected gunmen.

He said the establishment of the permanent Army barracks would greatly assist in ensuring peace, law, and order in the communities.

” We call for the full establishment of the proposed army barracks in Zango Urban District as against the present temporary base. This would greatly assist in ensuring peace, law, and order returns,” he said.

According to the forum, some of the problems leading to the attacks in the area are injustice, marginalisation, sinister Indoctrination and brainwashing, unemployment, drug abuse, and restiveness among youths which must be addressed to attain peace.

The forum also said political inintotives were arriving from the actions and utterences of some selfish politicians in the area.

The group further cautioned the unscrupulous politicians to desist from overheating the polity with their words, actions divisive antics, etc.

It could be recalled that 17 people were killed last week at Zangon Kataf LGA which led to the imposition of a Curfew by the local government authorities.
