Abdullahi Ganduje, Governor of Kano has appealed to the military to come to the rescue of the state as bandits have allegedly taken over the Falgore Forest and others in the state.
Ganduje who had to run to the service chiefs at the Defence Headquarters in Abuja, begged the military to intervene and save Kano from impending doom.
He said: “I am also here to seek the help of the Nigerian Army to sustain the peace in Kano State. Bandits have converted some forests in the state into hideouts.
“The bandits are grouping in Falgore Forest and may be planning to attack our people.
“We are building houses, schools, and hospitals for the herdsmen in some of the forests but we want the army to commence activities at the Falgore Forest.
“I plead with the Nigerian Army to quickly conclude work on the training depot at the Falgore Forest so that they can take over the forest.”
