Tashas fumes over resurgence of criminal activities in Toto, suspends forestry activities
According to the Chairman, the forests within the Local Government Area have become places where kidnappers held their victims to, and continue to demand for ransome and in several cases kill their victims.
A statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant, SSA to the Chairman on Media and Communications, Yahaya Idris Toto, said all activities in the forests have been suspended with immediate effect as two persons were killed in one of the forests.
The SSA stated that Hon Tashas who is currently making security arrangements to flush the bandits and kidnappers, urged the people of the local government to be extra vigilant so as to avoid falling victims of criminals.
He pleaded with those with genuine businesses in the forests to suspend their activities as the government will not sit by and allow miscreants threaten the peace of the progressive people of Toto Local Government Area.
Hon Tashas who condoled with the families of the deceased, prayed to Almighty God to give them eternal rest and peace, urged residents to be conscious of their environment and report any suspicious persons and movements.
