“Where are we going to get this kind of money? Even if we sell the entire community, we cannot raise N40 trillion. Even Nigeria, as a country, has never made a budget of N40 trillion.

According to him, the communities in Birnin Gwari are surrounded by bushes serving as hideouts for the bandits, adding that the establishment of a military base would tackle the criminal operations in the area.

“From our community down to Birnin Gwari, which is over 150 kilometres, is a stretch of bush.


“We also have another stretch of bushes from Gonin Gora down to Niger State.


The community leader commended the Nigerian Army for their efforts in fighting bandits, urging the federal government to take necessary actions to address banditry.
