While commending some of his colleagues in the region who have adopted several security measures to checkmate banditry in their states, he advised those yet to do so to adopt community policing and the use of technology.

On his part, Masari thanked Ganduje and his entourage for the visit, noting that no major differences were existing between the two states.

He said, “We share our longest borders, and the relationship between us has remained ages. I don’t see boundaries and differences but administrative conveniences.”
