He said: “My visit here today is to condole with the Nigerian Army over the death of the former Chief of Army Staff Lt.- Gen.   Attahiru and 10 other officers.

“It was painful;  it was untimely and sorrowful but we are consoled that they died in active service to the nation.

“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.

“We are building houses, schools, and hospitals for the herdsmen in some of the forests but we want the Army to commence full activities at the Falgore forest”.

He commended President Muhammadu Buhari for approving the use of Falgore forest as a  military training base.

At least 6000 military personnel were trained at the Falgore forest last month.
