The assailants, the governor revealed, came on tinted glass and unregistered vehicles.

According to the governor, it is needless for public officers to mask themselves in tinted vehicles after being elected by the people.

“Because of insecurity, people lost hope from going to farm. Security should be everyone’s business. As government officials, we must do something.We have all the intelligence about the activities of these hoodlums. And very soon, they will face the music,” the Governor said.
