The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, Kano State Command, has dismissed a statement circulating in the social media that bandits from Zamfara and Katsina states were relocating to Kano state.

The alleged report indicated that the bandits, escaping from the onslaught of security forces, were believed to have infiltrated Kano state through some communities in Shanono, Gwarzo and Kabo local government areas of the state, here they are involved in illegal mining.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Command’s Spokesman, DSC Ibrahim Idris-Abdullahi, in Kano on Monday.

He said that: “The above information is verified to be untrue”.

“On Oct. 28, at about 9:00 a.m, some people were seen on motorcycles moving from Danguzuri village in Makarfi Local Government in Kaduna State.

“They went through Zarewa village in Kano State, along Beli road to Babbarika, to a settlement belonging to one Shehu Danfulani to attend a wedding and naming ceremony at the settlement.

“After the celebration, they all returned to where they came from,” he said.

Mr Idris-Abdullahi noted that the Village Head of Zarewa and Shehu Danfulani have all been interviewed by security agents and they confirmed the situation.

“From our investigation so far, no bandits have relocated to Gwarzo, Kabo and Shanono local government areas, as well as Dansoshiya forest.
