Kano State Governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has instructed security agents in-charge of manning the boarder between Kano and Kaduna to be extra vigilant and not to allow kidnappers, bandits, cow rustlers, vanguards of religious extremism and other crime perpetrators enter Kano from Kaduna.
Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje in a press statement by his chief Press Secretary, Mr Abba Anwar and made available to PRIME TIME NEWS on Thursday in Kano.
“Security agencies should be extra vigilant to make sure that kidnappers, bandits, armed robbers, cattle rustlers, vanguards of religious extremism and other criminal elements do not cross border from Kaduna to Kano.”
“People should understand that, when state puts ban on inter-states movement, it is necessary for them to observe that.”
“Our boundaries with other states are closely monitored and controlled.”
Mr Anwar also stated Mobile Court working with the law enforcement agents intercepted 45 vehicles that disregarded the lockdown order and ban on inter-states movement at Kwanar Dangora, Kano-Kaduna boundary.
According to the statement, over 45 vehicles that sneaked and arrested, while trying to force themselves to Kano, over 30 of them were from Kaduna state, 10 from Jigawa and others from other places.
The statement revealed that they were arrested because they bypassed the ban on inter-state movement order and decided to sneak to Kano ahead of Sallah festive period.
