The Niger State branch of the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) has urged the federal government and the Niger State government to do something about the incessant killing of farmers in the state.
The NYCN President in the state, Abdullahi Mohammed, stated that the insecurity has led to the closure of over 200 schools in local communities for the past three years.
He noted that Minna, the state capital, has continued to witness the activities of thugs and miscreants who have been disturbing the peace of residents and also lamented that the state has not tamed the tide of banditry and insurgency that has displaced thousands of rural farmers.
“Mohammed’s youths would be forced to take further action in three weeks’ time if the government did not take urgent measures to address the ongoing killings in the state,” he added.
Meanwhile, the youths had demanded compensation for victims, villages, and security operatives whose loved ones have been killed, kidnapped, or displaced.
