The Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed, on Saturday, warned residents of threats posed by bandits.
Mohammed said this when he paid a condolence visit to the people of Sabon Gari, Jada community in Alkaleri Local Government Area, while warning that the state would not be a safe haven for bandits.
Gunmen had on Thursday killed four persons including one Mariam Mohammed, during an attack on the community.
Three other persons were seriously injured in the attack.
The governor urged the residents to join hands with the state government and security agencies to flush out the criminals in the state.
He described the woman killed during the invasion of the community as a heroine and promised that his administration would immortalise her.
Mohammed said: “If left unchecked, the relative peace enjoyed in the state will be in danger as bandits appear to be emboldened in their onslaught on several parts of the country.
“These recent attacks by bandits are becoming a thing of concern and I charge you all to be on the alert. Security agencies cannot defeat bandits without the support of the people.
“I call on everybody to join hands with the security agencies in the fight against criminals.”
