NNPJ calls for revival of “Operation Yaki” to combat security challenges in Kaduna

From Abdullahi Alhassan, Kaduna

The National President of the Nigeria Network of Peace Journalists (NNPJ), Comrade Ibrahima Yakubu, has urged the Kaduna State government under the leadership of Malam Uba Sani to reinstate “Operation Yaki”.

In a press statement made available to journalists in Kaduna, Comrade Yakubu appealed that reviving “Operation Yaki” is crucial in addressing internal security concerns in the state, much like the approach employed during the tenure of former Governor Namadi Sambo.

He emphasized that reactivating “Operation Yaki” would significantly reduce the activities of phone snatchers, the ‘Yan Sara-Suka group, ethno-religious attacks, and other forms of security threats that undermine peace and unity within the state.

Comrade Yakubu reminisced about the past, mentioning that during the tenure of Architect Namadi Sambo, who later became Vice President of Nigeria, Kaduna State saw helicopters and brand new police cars actively patrolling communities day and night.

He also commended the efforts of the military and paramilitary forces in the state, while encouraging affluent individuals to support the government by providing essential resources and tools.
