The Emir of Muri, Alhaji Abbas Njidda Tafida, has asked his subjects to confront kidnappers and bandits instead of running away from them.
He made this known when members of his community paid him Eid-El-Fitr homage on Thursday, saying, the criminals elements terrorising innocent residents are few compared to the larger members of the society.
He challenged his people to be courageous and secure their communities.
According to him, “When they kill any member of your community, retaliate and kill them and not run away to allow them kill and abduct your people.
“The larger society must resist attacks by kidnappers and bandits by confronting them when ever they come attacking.”
The Emir also advised that walls should be built around villages and towns for protection as was done in the ancient days.
He asked people to be on guard in the localities.
