We will meet on the field as Governor promises to join hunters, Security officers to hunt down bandits

The Governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Badugu has promised to join Local Hunters to track down bandits causing trouble in the state.

CRIMECHANNELS gathered that the Governor said this on Saturday, June 19, when the Hunters paid him a courtesy visit, following the recent abduction of some school students in Birnin Yauri.

Recall that some gunmen suspected to be bandits on Thursday morning, at about 1am, invaded the Federal Government College in Birnin Yauri, and abducted over 80 Students and 5 Teachers.

Addressing the Hunters, Atiku who was in the company of Kayode Fayemi, Governor of Ekiti, said as soon as he gets security clearance from troops, he will join the Hunters on the field to track down the Bandits.

In his own words, he said, “We will go out there, and like I promised, the day we will move out, I will not be in the office because we will join you on the field. Also, other Governors will leave their people so that we’ll meet on the field.”


“It is the will that bad people cannot triumph, and we will show that we have enough willpower.”

“President Mohammadu Buhari and the security agencies have been doing the best they could with limited resources. But we also need to mobilize, kit ourselves and take on these bandits.”

“Our various scriptures as Muslims and Christians allow us to put our lives at risk in defence of our honour, property and our faiths. In what the bandits are doing, they have challenged all these. So, we can’t let them.”

“What happened in Birnin Yauri should be the last straw. We should follow these bandits wherever they are and take them on, “he said.
