The executive governor of Sokoto state Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has called on the President for immediate intervention against the killer bandits who have been terrorizing most parts of his state.
The governor made this call to the president and to the federal government during his visit to Abuja on Monday. A report of the meeting was later released by Mohammed Bello, Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Publicity, which reads that gov. Tambwal urged the president to “declare a full scale emergency in terrorists” that have been reeking havoc in the state.
The governor stressed that declaring a full scale emergency in terrorists’ enclaves in the state, will enable the Armed Forces to carry out their operations without hindrance in all affected states of Northern Nigerian.
The gov. also suggested that when these operations are approved, that they should be carried out simultaneously on all affected states, where the terrorists have strongholds such as, Sokoto, Zamfara, Katsina, Kaduna, Niger and Kebbi states; as well as elsewhere, where they have hideouts and sleeper cells.
Gov. Tambuwal also appealed to the President to give premium to the deployment of more manpower to all troubled areas with sophisticated equipment, particularly, modern technology-which use is now centered around the deployment of drones globally.
