 Kebbi State Governor, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu on Tuesday in Birnin-Kebbi, has appealed to Military high Command to help the State bring activities of bandits to zero level ahead of the 2023 General Elections which is just few days away.

Gov. Bagudu who made the appeal when the newly appointment General Officer Commanding (GOC) 8 Division, Sokoto, Maj.-Gen. Godwin Mutkut visited him in Birnin Kebbi also appealed for more deployment of troops across the trouble spots in the State.

He told the visiting GOC that he is using his appeal as a quick opportunity to put forward our request about the security situation in the Northwest and Kebbi in particular.

Pointing out that Danko-Wasagu and Sakaba Local Government Areas have long been target areas for these criminals to carry out their inhuman activities, adding that military intervention was necessary in view of the forthcoming general elections.

“As I speak with you, Warkata, Kulgi, Maitaba, Dankolo, Makuku, Kabaro, Danlayi and Dankande Villages are all empty now. I was at Warkata two weeks ago just to confirm what I was told; these are villages with large number of voters and if they are displaced we will be displaced too”. He said.

In his speech earlier, General Mutkut who also doubled as Commander of Operation Hadarin Daji, said he was in Kebbi to interact with troops and encourage them to work hard to secure the state, “i want them to know my philosophy on how we are going to counter the menace of bandits in this part of the country.

He commended the state government for its support to the army and assured that the military would root out the bandits and protect the country’s territorial integrity.
