“I submitted a report to him that it is all well; we are managing. There is high coordination of the security agencies in Kano; they are working very hard.
“The only problem we have is the Falgore forest for which we are providing infrastructure for military training in order to prevent the bandits from colonising that particular environment.
“We are working very hard on that; so, briefly, that is what I have come to discuss with him.’’
