Niger Governor Reads Riot Act To Bandits

Abubakar Sani Bello

Governor Abubakar Sani Bello of Niger State has disclosed that measures have been put in place collectively by the Federal and State governments to deal decisively with anyone involved in the killing or kidnapping of innocent people.

The Governor made the disclosure during an interactive session with Kogi State indigenes residents in Niger at a forum organized by the Senator representing Kogi West, Sen. Smart Adeyemi at the Idris Legbo Kutiigi International Conference Hall, Minna.

He decried the current situation in the country especially the Northern region, compared to how it was before 1999.

The Governor who was positive about an end to the spate of insecurity in the state in particular and the country in general warned the criminals to desist from their nefarious activities or be dealt with decisively.

"We will try to become a better state and nation, and all the insecurity will for sure be history one day. It is my prayer that bandits and kidnappers will see reasons to desist from their actions.

"However, they are running out of time and we cannot continue to give them time to repent. If they don't repent, collectively, the Federal and state efforts have been established, and there will be no room for any mercy on anyone found killing or kidnapping innocent people, disallowing them from continuing with their ways of life. So the choice is theirs.

"I hope this nonsense will stop. I hope we will have a better environment. I have no doubt we will have a better country and a better Niger State.

On the coming general elections, Governor Sani Bello said there is no alternative party to APC.

Earlier, Sen. Smart Adeyemi recounted the good old days in Minna his place of birth, saying his visit is a homecoming.

The Lawmaker explained that he came on "a one-man campaign team for Tinubu/Shetima", and to empower Kogi indigenes residents in Niger State.

He described the combination of Tinubu and Shetima as the best for Nigeria considering the vast experience of Tinubu in wealth creation and Shetima in matters of security.
