Niger State Governor, Abubakar Sani Bello said the senseless killings in some communities in the state is partly attributable to the inability of government to adequately punish those taking laws into their hands.
The governor made this known while inaugurating an eight-man judicial commission of inquiry into the recent killings in Mazakuka, Addogon Malam Kulho and other communities in Mashegu Local Government Area of the state.

The commission are to submit the results of their findings within 30 days.
