He urged residents to be patient and to support new security measures put in place to flush out bandits and their collaborators to restore peace in the state.
The Governor jadded the barrage of attacks on bandits by security forces had made them to make a fresh overture to government seeking dialogue.
He said the bandits’ emissaries informed him that they had repented and would want to dialogue with government.
