Kano is one of the relatively peaceful states in the north, which has recorded little or no attacks of banditry, kidnapping and terrorism.

Why no bandits in Kano

Shehu Sani, a former senator and activist, in an interview with Legit.ng, explained why Kano is one of the states in the north while preferring solutions to the insecurity challenges in the region.

The human rights activist asked if anyone has ever wondered why terrorism and banditry were not taking place in some northern states, particularly Kano and Jigawa.

The former senator said it was because the governors in those states, over time, have taken the issue of the security of lives and properties very seriously, and their security funds were spent appropriately.

According to the former lawmaker, Nigerians would not commend President Bola Tinubu for trial; the people wanted complete eradication of terrorism, banditry and kidnapping, adding that the menace was spreading from the north to the south.

Court dismisses Kano suit against Ganduje

Legit.ng earlier reported that a Federal High Court in Kano ruled that the allegation against Abdullahi Ganduj was a federal matter, and only the EFCC or the attorney general of the federation could investigate him.

The court said the state government did not have the legal standing to investigate the APC national chairman over the alleged dollar bribery scandal.

Ganduje is under investigation over bribery allegations after being seen collecting bonds of dollars from a contractor in a video when he was governor.
