Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje on Friday visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja and raised the alarm that Boko Haram and kidnappers were planning to dominate the northwest.
Addressing State House correspondents after meeting with Buhari, Ganduje said the insurgents were planning to leave Sambisa forest in Borno State for the northwest.
He observed that as a cosmopolitan city, Kano is an attractive place for insurgents and kidnappers to operate.
The governor said the security agencies had already made so arrests and that investigations were going on.
“I came to visit the president on the security situation in Kano, especially the fall-out from the north western part of the country in which some of the Boko Haram and Kidnappers will like to dominate, to come back from Sambisa forest so that they can be operating from the north western part of the country.
“So, the security agencies are working very hard. A lot of arrests have been made and investigation is going on. We won’t allow them to dominate Kano and make it as a launching pad.
“As a cosmopolitan city, Kano is an attractive place for such elements to come in. The security agencies have apprehended about three or four of them,” Ganduje stated.
