The senator representing Kaduna South, Sunday Katung, has called for an investigation into the attack that claimed the lives of six people in Ambe community in the Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

Katung urged security operatives to unravel those behind the attack, while also commending the community members of apprehending one of the suspects.

He stated this on Thursday when he, alongside the member representing Jema’a/Sanga Federal Constituency, Daniel Amos, visited the community to sympathise with them.

Some terrorists launched a fresh attack on the community, killing six persons while nine others were injured, according to the youth leader of the community, Micah Aude, who confirmed the incident on Monday.

“I commend your community for the braveness in apprehending one of the suspected attackers. I’m also calling on the security operatives to leave no stone unturned to unravel those who masterminded the unprovoked attack and bring them to justice.

“To the community members who always connive with attackers to attack their community, don’t forget that no matter how long it takes, nemesis will always catch up,” Katung added.

In his address, Amos prayed for the repose of the souls of the deceased and offered to take up the medical bills of the injured alongside Katung, to speed up their healing process.

“I will work side-by-side with the Senator to ensure that the request for the re-establishment of a military camp within the community is actualised to give them and four other communities around the area hope to go back to their farms to cultivate a bumper harvest this year,” Amos said.

In his remark, the community’s youth leader, Micah Audi, said the community had been living in peace with their neighbours, but wondered what actually went wrong that led to the unfortunate incident, ten years after the community suffered the same faith that led to the death of over 40 people.

He commended the security operatives in the area for their professionalism in carrying out their duties and hoped that the investigations would lead to the arrest of all those involved so that justice would be served on them and not released unconditionally.

The House of Representatives has called on the Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun; the Department of State Services and heads of other security agencies to probe the recent killings of innocent Nigerians in Ambe community.
