Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje on Friday said Boko Haram insurgents were entering into the state through Falgore forest.
Ganduje said this whole speaking with newsmen shortly after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari.
“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 also spoke on the forthcoming rerun in Rivers State, stating that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will be victorious.
He said, “We have fresh ideas even though the environment in Rivers is quiet different. We are consulting, we are coordinating and this time around, like in Ondo state, we must ensure free and fair election.
“You know in that part of the country, having free and fair election is not normal and we must make it normal this time around. We must make sure that there is security so that people can come out and vote and vote the person they like.
“That is our main preoccupation at the moment. We are making wider consultations with stakeholders and we believe we will succeed.”
