He said that government and other relevant security agencies in the state had since adopted many security strategies aimed at overpowering the recalcitrant bandits and their informants.
“While sympathising with the people of the area, the speaker thanked Allah that no life was lost during the recent attacks, while also commending them for not taking laws into their hands.
“During the visit, the speaker donated the sumN200,000 for the ongoing renovation of Jumu’at Mosque in the town.
“Also, the Special Adviser to Gov. Matawalle on Rural Water Supply, Aliyu Magaji-Ajala, donated the sum N100,000, while the Majority Leader of Assembly, Alhaji Faruk Dosara donated the sum of N50,000,’’ the statement said.
