The Governor of Kano State Abdullahi has informed all who care to listen that 90% of victims kidnapped in the state have been rescued successfully by state security operatives.
Ganduje made the claim on Sunday while addressing newsmen when receiving a delegation from Rano Emirate who visited him.
According to him, “90 percent of the people kidnapped in Kano were rescued. Cattle rustling has become history in the state drastically and armed robbery has reduced drastically.”
He also disclosed that the army had pledged to convert the Falgore forest to a military training ground.
Ganduje said: “When I lodged my complaint about Falgore forest to President Muhammadu Buhari, he directed me to meet with Chief of Army Staff, General Yusuf Buratai, who, in turn, promised to convert the forest into a military training ground.”
