Insecurity:Kaduna to Recruit 7,000 Youths

Kaduna State governor, Uba Sani, has revealed his intention to hire 7,000 young people to assist security agencies in combating insecurity in the state.

Located in the North-West region of the country, Kaduna is grappling with security issues such as banditry and kidnapping.

Sani, who has just been in office for about three months, stated his plans to involve young people in the fight against the crime.

He explained that he had always been an advocate of state police during his time as a senator, and he intended to start the recruitment process soon.

Speaking on Channels TV on Monday, Sani said, “Coming to Kaduna, I also revived the Kaduna State Vigilance Service of old.

“As we are speaking right now, in the next week, we are going to recruit at least 7,000 youths who are going to be running our Kaduna State Vigilance Service.”

According to him, the development was further necessitated by the fact that “security agencies are lacking the boots” in their bid to tackle insecurity.

“And of course, they need the support of our local vigilance service. As of today, we have only 2,000, but we are recruiting another 7,000 to make them 9,000,” the former lawmaker explained.
