Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has hinted that bandits are planning to attack the state.
Ganduje alleged that bandits are gathering in forests across the state, possibly to plan attacks.
He raised the alarm during a meeting with the Chief of Army Staff, Maj. Gen. Farouk Yahaya in Abuja.
Disclosing that the bandits are grouping in Falgore forest, Ganduje urged the Nigerian Army to hasten to work in the forest.
Ganduje said: “My visit here today is to condole with the Nigerian Army over the death of the former Chief of Army Staff Lieutenant General Ibrahim Attahiru and ten other officers.
“It was painful, it was untimely and sorrowful but we are consoled that they died in active service to the nation. I am also here to seek the help of the Nigerian Army to sustain the peace in Kano State; bandits have converted some forests in the state into hideouts.
“We are building houses, schools and hospitals for the herdsmen in some of the forests but we want the Army to commence activities at the Falgore forest.”
