The governor said even though the Federal Government had launched a military operation against the bandits in July, the criminals regrouped and returned with vendetta, killing and kidnapping innocent people and demanding large sums of money as ransom.

He said after a meeting with stakeholders in the state on Monday, the state government had set up a crisis management committee comprising security agents, civil servants, legislators and retired security agents.

The governor said the body was charged with the responsibility of assessing the damages caused by the activities of the hoodlums to enable the government to assist the victims.

Yari appealed to the Federal Government to deploy more military personnel to the state to defeat the bandits.
