The governor told State House correspondents that insurgents, kidnappers, armed robbers can be defeated with unity of purpose by all Nigerians.

“I visited Mr. President, Buhari, to further brief him about the unfortunate incidents in Kebbi State, at the Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri, where a number of bandits overwhelmed the and abducted a number of pupils, teaching staff and non-teaching staff and the regrettable loss of life by a police officer in the process and some pupils also and those who were wounded in the process, and those who are still in the hands of the terror gang even though some successes have been commendably achieved by the of some pupils and teachers. 

“I explained to him that the have mobilised and are doing a great job, assisted by the military, the Air Force, the police, civil defense, vigilante and community leaders. They are still at it and they’re doing a great job, but we need more support by all Nigerians and in fact all to ensure that we give them our maximum cooperation to finish what they have started.
“President has, as always, expressed sympathy to those innocent persons who are held hostage against their will by terror elements and he condemned the action of all terror groups, wherever they are, whether they are bandits, Boko Haram, or any group that is taking away the liberty and freedoms and, in fact, lives and livelihoods of others. He maintained the instruction he has always given to the to give their maximum best in dealing with those criminal elements. 

“Our stand, I have made it very clear this is condemnable, this should not happen and all people of goodwill, all good people should mobilise to confront evil and evil elements and criminal elements in our society. It’s not just a job for the agencies, we have to support them. We have to mobilise. 
“Since I made that statement, which I meant by every stretch of imagination, many groups have come out to demonstrate similar supports and yesterday we have seen mobilisation by the governor and I believe we’ll see more in the coming days. 
“Nigerians should unite so that we confront criminality. Even yesterday, Fulani leaders in Kebbi State all visited , Kebbi, even though I was not there to receive them, to condemn and to distance themselves from those renegade groups, or renegade criminal elements and to offer to support in whatever role the agencies will want them to play,” he said.
