They are to meet Governor Seyi Makinde and supervise change of leadership at the division.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government has said that negotiating with bandits is a sign of weakness and incapacity on the part of the Government.
National Security Adviser, NSA, Major General Babagana Monguno, who stated this during the weekly Ministerial briefing at the State House in Abuja, said Government would rather deploy all necessary forces to eliminate criminals.
He said the government would not succumb to blackmail and the use of criminals by proxies to harass innocent citizens.
“While the government is not averse to talking it must apply the necessary force because you can’t trust these people.
“Government wants to use military assets to eliminate them but if along the line, they come out, good. Negotiating with bandits paints the picture of weakness, incapacity,” Monguno said.
