Buhari Ahmadu Tanko the Commander of Civilian Joint Task Force (JTF) in charge of Kakuri community, Kaduna South Local Government Area of Kaduna state, has been murdered.

The Nation reports that Tanko was reportedly killed by some yet to be identified assailants.

The Kaduna state police command spokesperson, ASP Aliyu Usman confirmed the incident

He said, the late Tanko, 27 was murdered by hoodlums while attempting to stop them from stealing from the premises of defunct Kaduna Textile Limited located in his catchment area.

ASP Usman said the incident occurred at about 3:26 hours of Monday 29th August 2016, making it difficult for the police to make immediate arrest of any suspect in connection with the killing.

He however said investigation into the matter has already been launched and the culprits will soon be fished out to face the full wrath of the law.

Effort to speak with family of the deceased could not be established as the time of filing this report.

But member of JTF in Kakuri, who would not want his name in print vowed, never to be deterred by the gruesome murder of their leader in their efforts to make the community safer, urging the state government to train and equip them instead of attempting to scrap the activities of local vigilante in the State as we read in the media.

“We know the community better because we leave here. The government can train us continually so we discharge our responsibility better. What happened cannot stop us from patrolling our area especially at night. And we will bring the killers of Buhari to justice no matter how long it will take us,” he said.

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
