He made this statement while introducing a resolution calling for the military to send more troops to the state’s impacted areas in order to stop the increasing number of attacks.

According to Gumi, robbers recently raided many settlements in the state, roosted cattle, destroyed property, burned down police stations and food silos, and killed 16 people while injuring dozens more.

He claimed that there are always attacks in the neighborhood. According to him, farmers abandoned their land in order to be safe, while people of roughly 71 communities evacuated their homes.

Gumi noted that the bandits taxed residents of the settlements and demanded ransom payments from those they kidnapped.
