”The new law is also designed to align with global best practices.

”It is a model for other sub-nationals as well as a clear demonstration of the state government’s commitment towards degrading terrorists, bandits, kidnappers and other criminal elements who have been laying siege to some communities in our state,” he added.

”Security is everybody’s business; we must join hands to uproot the evil elements destroying our local economies and the livelihoods of our people,” Mr Sani said.
