“The situation is unhealthy as it is no longer safe. “The government we voted into power has left us at the mercy of armed herdsmen, farms cannot be cultivated in the face of the high level of impunity,” she lamented. Responding, the Chief of Godogodo, Malam Iliya Ajiya appealed to the protesting women to remain calm as everything possible was being done to bring the situation under control. When contacted, the Interim Chairman of Jema’a local council, Dr. Bege Katukah confirmed to NAN in a telephone interview that security men had been mobilised to the affected community. The residents of the affected villages have been relocating to Godogodo, Antang and Gidan Waya, for their safety.
