Urging people in the state to be more security conscious and vigilant, the governor said: “The security agents also confiscated arms and communication gadgets from the alleged terrorists, even as they divulged very useful information.”

In his remarks when the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II paid him the traditional Hawan Nassarawa homage at the Government House in Kano, Ganduje explained that the arrest was made possible by special network that facilitated local community intelligence gathering.

He assured that the government would sustain its commitment towards protecting lives and property of the people in the state.

The governor explained that as part of effort by his government to assist security agencies to do their work efficiently, vehicles worth millions of Naira have been purchased and distributed to the Army, Civil Defense, Federal Road Safety Corps as well as Hisbah Guards.

“We have also built ten security dormitories, each capable of housing 60 security officials to help the police in surveillance along the major highways coming onto the state capital”, he added.

He further stated that his administration, in conjunction with security agencies, have taken concrete steps to end criminal activities within Falgore forest, pouting out that so far, the Nigerian Army has established a training facility for soldiers in the forest.

The governor told the Emir his administration has committed huge resources to the provision of public infrastructure like metropolitan roads, rural access infrastructure, hospitals and classrooms among others, requesting for the sustained support of the Emirate Council to forge ahead.
