Governments issue a warning about bandits moving to the North-East.


Governments issue a warning about bandits moving to the North-East.
According to the North-East Governors' Forum, the region's relative tranquilly is at risk due to the enormous departure of bandits from the region's North-West.

According to our source, the governors of Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, and Yobe states were all there, with the exception of Darius Ishaku, the governor of Taraba State, who was represented at the group's seventh meeting in Gombe.

This was declared by the group on Friday evening in a nine-point declaration that was read by Yobe State Governor Mai Mala Buni and signed by Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State, who is the Chairman of the North-East Forum.

The panel emphasised the necessity for a strategy to break up the criminals with the backing of the federal government.

The conference asserted that there is a connection between mining operations and insecurity and emphasised the requirement for strict adherence to the Land Use Act.

The meeting applauded President Muhammadu Buhari and the security forces for their efforts in battling the Boko Haram insurgency, according to a portion of the communiqué. It took notice of the region's security situation's improvement, which had mostly been made possible by kinetic and non-kinetic measures.

The meeting praised the sub-current region's state of relative calm, particularly the decline in farmer-herder conflicts. However, due to the widespread mobility of the bandits, who are being progressively driven out of the North-West by the security forces, the region is becoming more and more vulnerable to insecurity. A coordinated security road map must be immediately implemented in coordination with security agencies and the Federal Government due to the bandit inflow.

The discussion brought up the connection between mining operations and insecurity, particularly when it came to the misuse of mining leases. Therefore, it decided to strictly enforce the Land Use Act's requirements.

The organisation also lamented the estimated 5% power distribution in the area and urged the federal government to act quickly to realise the promise of the Mambila power project.
