An Islamic sect, Darus Salam has been born in Nasarawa State.
Right now the alleged sect members have taken Toto Local Govt. Area of the State as their base. Their main occupation is kidnappings and banditry.
Narrating this to President Muhammadu Buhari, the NasarawaState Governor, Abdullahi Sule, appealed to the Federal Government for deployment of more security personnel to the State to confront the dreaded dreaded sect.
Briefing President Buhari in Abuja on the security situation of his State, Gov. Sule explained that the sect was earlier dislodged but has reassembled in Toto Local Government Area with main occupation being kidnapping people and involving in banditry.
“We want the Federal Government to intervene by providing more security, more military presence in the area, more police to engage them and get them out of the State.
“The situation, especially in Toto is very bad right now. The military had a joint operation with the airforce as well as the police recently and they were able to destroy the camp of the Darus Salam group but they have regrouped. I believe our security agencies are up to the tasks,” Gov. Sule cried out.
