Mohammed assured that the government was prepared to flush-out all the people sponsoring or aiding criminality in the state.

“Some of the members of our traditional institutions are compromised, allowing strange people, people with criminal backgrounds just because of the small peanuts they will get.

“We will not spare anybody, even though I am a member of the traditional institution.

”If anybody is found wanting, we will discipline him because we will not allow the traditional institutions to compromise and bring people that will make our lives and property compromised.

“I also want to say to our people that we should always be together, we should eschew rumour mongering, hatred, treachery, and mischief.

“I know some leaders of the state who are busy bringing criminals to the state. I will talk when the time comes but certainly, we are not afraid of them.

“You’ve seen what is manifesting in Bauchi recently, criminality everywhere, kidnapping and stealing. We have a security board and we know those behind it,” the governor said.
