“Boko Haram Has Taken Over Kano”
Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has today briefed President Muhammadu Buhari on emerging security challenges in the state occasioned by increasing influx of Boko Haram insurgents into Falgore forest in the state.
Ganduje was reacting to questions from a group of journalist after a closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
“I came to brief Mr President on the security situation in Kano especially on the fallout from the North Eastern part of this country in which some of the Boko Haram (insurgents) kidnappers will like to dominate Falgore where they will be operating to other parts of the North Western part of the country.
“So, the security agencies are working very hard and a lot of arrest had been made, investigation is going on.
“We will not allow them to dominate Kano and to make it as a launching pad.
“Certainly, we expect if they are dismantled from the North East part of this country they will find another location and Kano being an older city, is an attractive place for such elements to come in.”
He said that security agencies have apprehended three persons believed to be leaders of the criminal group.
