Banditry: Gov Sani of Kaduna identifies Root Causes 

Kaduna State Governor, Uba Sani, has identified poverty and unemployment as the root causes of the prevailing banditry and kidnapping challenges in the North-West region.

 Sani made this known on Monday at Government House.

The Governor emphasized that good governance was crucial for effectively addressing these security issues.

He acknowledged the ongoing military actions against banditry, with the Defence headquarters supporting the establishment of two Forward Operation Bases (FOBs) in key locations.

However, Sani highlighted the importance of a non-kinetic approach, emphasizing the role of good governance in addressing the economic problems leading to insecurity.
