The Arewa Youth Movement for Good Governance has alleged that land encrochers are harbouring kidnappers especially around the National Eyes Centre, Kaduna.
The youths expressed worry over the convertion of National Eye Centre Land by land encroachers to kidnappers den and criminal hideouts for disgungtled elements.
In a statement signed by the Youth Chairman, Alhaji Ibrahim Ahmadu, alleged that most building along the access road to National Eye Centre are not completed and not occupied.
He said the purported owners were those who National Eye Centre dragged to court.
“Now if you happened to pass through Eye Centre road from 8pm to 1am you will notice strange caliber of boys and men that would scare you, smoking and taking dangerous substances suspected to be hard drugs.”
“No normal human being hangs out in uncompleted building at such odd hours. Don’t they have families or houses of their own? We are calling on the Chief Security Officer of the state, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai to as a matter of urgency rise to the defense of neighbouring communities and the National Eye Centre itself because the hospital is the only hope for the commoners in Kaduna and indeed Northern Nigeria,” he said.
Ahmadu stressed that the issue of land encroachment in National Eye Centre has become bad such that even Coperate companies like 9mobile have invaded and installed communication mask, an issue that have already been taken to court.
“We hereby call on President Muhammadu Buhari to direct Inspector General of Police to fasttrack measures in dismantling illegal structures and arresting suspected criminals and Kidnappers” the statement added.
The group also thank governor Nasir El-rufai for the ongoing massive road construction around the metropolitan area of the state stressing that the good people of the state will never regret giving him the mandate to pilot the affairs of the state.
