Governor Abubakar Sani Bello of Niger State has called on the Federal Government to urgently deploy military action against terrorists in the State.

Addressing journalist in Niger state on Wednesday, Governor Abubakar Sani Bello through his press Secretary Mrs. Mary Noel Barje, said killings by bandits had become daily occurrences.

He regretted that the bandits often overpower local vigilante and the military to gain access to communities.

Barje however noted that the Governor had signed a law to unify all voluntary groups in the state, and give them legal backing to carry arms.
