Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has alerted President Muhammadu Buhari of the terrorists group, Boko Haram influx to his state.
Ganduje met with the President on Friday to brief him of the migrations of Boko Haram insurgents into Falgore forest in Kano.
The governor who disclosed this when questioned by State House correspondents after a closed door meeting with Presiden Buhari in the Presidential Villa, Abuja said:
“I came to brief Mr President on the security situation in Kano especially on the fallout from the North Eastern part of this country in which some of the Boko Haram kidnappers will like to dominate Falgore where they will be operating to other parts of the North Western part of the country.
“So, the security agencies are working very hard and a lot of arrests have been made, investigation is going on. We will not allow them to dominate Kano and to make it as a launching pad.
”Certainly, we expect if they are dismantled from the North East part of this country they will find another location and Kano being an older city, is an attractive place for such elements to come in.”
Ganduje also revealed that security agencies have apprehended three persons suspected to be leaders of the criminal group.
Ganduje who is the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign committee for the Rivers State rerun elections stated that it is not normal to have free and fair elections in that state, or parts of the south of Nigeria.
He said, “We are prepared, we just came out of the Ondo elections, we have fresh ideas even though both environments are different but we have our own strategies. Like in Ondo State we must ensure they have a free and fair elections. You know in that part of the country, having a free and fair elections is not normal and we have to make it normal this time.
“We must ensure that there is security so that people will come out and vote, that’s our main preoccupation at the moment. We are making wider consultations with stakeholders and we believe we will succeed”, he said.
