Kaduna attacks: We will react if Buhari fails to end terrorism – El-Rufai blows hot


The Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, has stated that he would resort to hiring foreign mercenaries to fight terrorists in the state if the Muhammadu Buhari Government fails to end the incessant attacks.

The governor made this known on Friday while addressing journalists shortly after briefing Buhari on recent attacks in the state.

Speaking on the Abuja-Kaduna train attack and the general insecurity in the country, El-Rufai stated that the state governors may not have a choice but to find means of protecting the lives and properties of their people if Buhari fails.

Speaking in Hausa, El-Rufai said, “I have complained to Mr president and I swear to God, if action is not taken, we as governors will take actions to protect the lives of our people.

“If it means deploying foreign mercenaries to come and do the work, we will do it to address these challenges.”

Gunmen have been on a rampage in Kaduna State killing, unsuspecting residents and abducting many in coordinated attacks.
