Governor Patrick Yakowa of Kaduna state has decried the spate of killings involving security agents and he promised that government would do everything in order to check the activities of those who do not want peace.
Yakowa, who made this known during the church service in honour of the late Inspector Tanimu Yakubu Barde who was killed last Saturday at Trikania, also commiserated with the Sa Gbagyi I, Chief Danjuma Barde, the deceased’s uncle and the paramount chief of Gbagi.
The service which held at the Multi-purpose hall of Gonin Gora, a settlement along Kaduna-Abuja road, was attended by friends and well wishers, including colleagues of the deceased.
The governor decried the killing of innocent people, especially young men who are in the security forces. He said that the matter was discussed at the security council meeting of the state and that government is working tirelessly to put an end to these senseless killings.
The Tanimu who was the younger brother of Hon Yakubu Umar Barde, the representative of Chikun-Kajuru federal constituency in the House of Representatives, was allegedly trailed by gun men to Tirkaniya where they shot him at close range.
According to reports, the killers wanted to snatch his End-of-Discussion model Honda car and when he resisted, they shot him. Another account had it that Tanimu was just asked to come out of his car and when he complied, he was shot by the assailants.
He was rushed to Graceland Hospital at Barnawa where he died.
