The rising spate of insecurity was due to the bad governance exhibited by Al-Makura since assumption of office, the violence will not only affect everybody, the violence has affected our corporate existence as a people.
Fielding questions on the presence of security personnel at the crisis prone communities, Muluku buttressed that no single soldier was deployed to the troubled area.”

There is no military formation, no food, no medical facilities, and camp for displaced Eggons from the State.
When asked on the recent donation of relief materials to the internally displaced person, IDPs, by the State Government, he said there was no presence of relief materials doled out to IDPs from Nasarawa Eggon.
“I am representing the people of Nasarawa Eggon East at the Assembly but I’m not aware of relief materials donated to displaced persons, even as there was no single dine given to the Eggons.
“In addition go to my school now and you will pity those occupying classrooms there, my school Foundation Private School, was filled to capacity, even homes in Nasarawa Eggon are overstretched with the influx of people, he added.
“As of this moment Nasarawa community expended barely two million on security, we are those paying money to soldiers to ensure our people go back to their abode, no any stringent measure was taking by the governor of the state,” he exclaimed.
