‘Bandits Hiding In Kano Forests’ — Ganduje Raises Alarm Over Upcoming Kano Attack



The governor of Kano, Abdullahi Ganduje, has called on the military to intervene against the criminals who have turned part of the state’s woodlands into hideouts.

On Thursday, Ganduje made the announcement during a meeting with Farouk Yahaya, the Chief of Army Staff, at the Defence Headquarters in Abuja.

He claimed that bandits had begun converging in Falgore woodland, and he raised concern that they were plotting attacks across the state.

Ganduje stated his commitment to assisting security agencies in maintaining the state’s tranquility.

The governor urged for the army training center in Falgore Forest to be completed as soon as possible, stating that it will strengthen the military presence in the area.

“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,” he said.

“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 to 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.”

In response, the army chief said he will visit Falgore to see how work could resume on the army training facility in the forest.
