Bauchi Gov. urges traditional rulers to preach against crime

Gov. Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State has urged traditional rulers in the state to preach against crime and violence in their respective communities.

Mohammed  made the call on Tuesday in Bauchi when emirs and chiefs visited him.

The governor said that the involvement of the traditional institution in fighting crime had become very crucial.

He said that the recent discovery of oil and gas in commercial quantity on the Kolmani River II saddled the state with a responsibility to ensure law and order.

“Oil has been discovered in commercial quantity on the Kolmani River II Well, on Upper Benue Trough, Gongola Basin.

“This development has a way of attracting people with nefarious character; we must be very careful,” he said.

Mohammed  said he was happy that a recent criminal attempt  in Toro Local Government Area was repelled by the people.

He urged the traditional leaders to always charge the people to keep away from crime and other forms of social disturbance.

“We have heard about traditional rulers in some states who abet crime; such will not be tolerated here.

“You have to be extra-vigilant; always report suspicious movements and security threats to relevant security agencies,” he said.

The Emir of Bauchi, Dr Rilwanu Adamu, who led the delegation to the governor, said the visit was to congratulate him on his victory at the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal.

Adamu commended the governor for his achievements in infrastructure and security within the first 100 days of his administration.(NAN)
