KADUNAKaduna State government on Wednesday confirmed that no less than 343 persons lost their lives in the state in the past three months to activities of bandits.

Apart from those killed, 830 oth­ers were kidnapped while 210 resi­dents also suffered various forms of injury in the third quarter of 2021.

This was confirmed by the state Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, while presenting a security report to the state governor, Nasir El-Rufai.

The report also observed that 69 bandits were killed by securi­ty agents in the period under review.

It would be recalled that the second quarter security report presented by the Ka­duna State government, cov­ering April, May and June 2021, showed that 222 persons were killed and about 774 peo­ple kidnapped by the bandits.

Though, the figures show a drop in the rate of killing and kidnapping, the disturb­ing trend is however the mass abduction of school children and the revelation by the gov­ernment that the bandits now charge levies to allow farming communities in 12 local gov­ernment areas of the state permission to cultivate their farms.

According to the security report presented by Aru­wan, banditry has hampered farming activities, threatened education and healthcare de­livery and led to near total collapse of economy in the frontline areas.
