Most of the people arrested in Kano State in recent times for alleged cattle rustling were identified to come from West African countries who connive with unscrupulous local Fulani.
This was disclosed by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje who also noted that the commercial position of Kano City coupled with the daily influx of people from several parts of West Africa is a great challenge to the Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS.
Governor Ganduje, who made these revelations while receiving the new comptroller of the state command of the CIS, Sadik Baba Shehuri in his office, lamented that the multiplicity of people in the state had made it vulnerable to security challenges.
He highlighted that “in recent times, most of the people arrested in the state for alleged cattle rustling were identified as people from West African countries who connive with unscrupulous local Fulani.”
He was also of the view that with the Nigerian Army’s renewed effort to tackle insurgency, Kano in view of its high population and ethnic diversity, might attract some insurgents, urging the NIS to be up and doing in keeping the state safe.
Governor Ganduje, who charged security agencies in the state to cultivate strong coordination of their activities to make the state safe at all times, donated a brand new 18-seater bus to the state command of the immigration service to ease its logistic problems.
In his speech earlier, Shehuri told the governor that in collaboration with other security agencies, the immigration service had evolved new strategies to monitor movement of people to and out of the state.
While thanking the state government for its support to the command, Shehuri requested for office accommodation to enable smooth take off of the second passport office in the state as well as a vehicle to assist his officers in routine surveillance.
