The Niger State Governor, Abubakar Sani Bello has reiterated his commitment to tackling insecurity across the state
The Governor who made this known through his spokesperson, Mary Noel, warned the youths not to engage in communal clashes or any acts of thuggery, lawlessness and unrest.
According to him, anybody intending to ferment trouble in the state would not be spared by the clutching fist of the law.
The Governor said that hoodlums must accept to live in peace, stop violent attacks on each other and ensure peaceful coexistence among themselves or face the full wrath of the law.
“These communal youth clashes are becoming notoriously disturbing in Minna, and we will not fold our arms and watch it degenerate. The government will continue to improve on and protect the security of lives and property of the people.”
Governor Bello has therefore directed the security agencies to comb the nook and cranny of the state capital and apprehend those restive youths who want to take laws into their hands.
He said normalcy has been restored in the affected areas and urged residents to go about their legitimate businesses without any fear of harassment and intimidation as any form of lawlessness would be repelled.
Report shows that clashes mostly between youths in Unguwar Daji and Limawa, a suburb in Minna which created anxiety among residents in the state’s capital have become frequent in the past three months
