Sokoto State government is planning to establish a military camp in one of the three towns frequently attacked by bandits. 

The Deputy Governor, Alhaji Idris Gobir, who disclosed this while addressing a gathering at Sabon Fegi in Sabon Birni Town, said consultation to that effect has reached advanced stage.

This, he said would check the frequent attacks being carried out by bandits in the area.

He implored the people of Sokoto East Senatorial District to shun fabricated stories on security issues. 

He described such rumour mongers as unpatriotic and called on citizens to remain united and security conscious in the fight against banditry.

He reiterated the commitment of Governor Ahmad Aliyu-led administration in the fight against banditry.

Gobir also announced that the contractor handling the construction of Tsululu Road in Sabon Birni would relocate to the site for the completion of the project.

He commended the people for their continued support to government.

In their separate remarks, the Sole Administrator of Sabon Birni Local Government, Alhaji Garba Kaba and his Isa Local Government counterpart, Alhaji Isah Dandela said significant success is being recorded in the fight against banditry in the zone, which has contributed in the reduction of attacks.
