The governor spoke through his chief of staff, Hon. Mukhtar Ruga at the opening ceremony of the 27th provincial Quran recitation competition.

Lawal was reacting on Friday to the abduction of more than 100 villagers by bandits in Mthunzi and three other communities in Maru local government area of ​​the state.

He said the state government was aware of the mass abductions and security challenges in rural areas.

“The state government has recruited 4,200 Community Protection Guards (CPGs) to deal with vile acts in the state,” he added.
