”Tinubu told me that we must find ways to restore security and harmonious coexistence. The President also mandated the meeting to look into the issue of resettlement of internally displaced persons (IDPs) including feeding and security,” he said.

On the ransom demanded by bandits for the kidnapped students, Senator Usman said, “The Federal government has maintained a position that no kobo will be paid as ransom to kidnappers’’.

He sympathised with the families of the kidnapped students and assured that security agencies were working to rescue the children.

He called on the communities to involve in intelligence gathering and provide useful information to security agencies whenever they suspect any planned attack by bandits.

“We must collectively work together to end this problem. President Tinubu is serious about insecurity as such we should support him.’’
