The Emir of Gusau, Alhaji Ibrahim Bello has said that the authorities of the emirate would partner youths in the area to fight crime.

The monarch said on Saturday that the youths would include ‘’repented’’ members of criminal gangs who had been identified.

The Emir made this known while receiving the state governor, Alhaji Abdulaziz Yari, who visited him in his palace on Sallah homage.

He said that the youths in the area, especially the ‘’retired and repented’’, had at several fora in communities in the area, expressed regrets for their earlier activities.

According to him, they have pledged not to return to their old ways.

‘’The youths who were numbering up to hundreds had expressed readiness to support the emirate and security agencies in exposing and dislodging criminals in the area,’’ he told the governor.

Bello, therefore, urged the state government to support the emirate in its resolve to fight crime, adding that the government should also design more skill acquisition programs to engage the youths.

``This will help in their rehabilitation and enable them to positively contribute to the development of the state and the nation as a whole,‘’ he said.

He assured that the emirate would continue to organise regular sessions to counsel youths groups against crimes, drug addiction and on the importance of Islamic and western education.

Earlier, the governor had commended the Emir for his efforts in providing a way for youths in the area.

He assured that the state government would give all necessary support to the emirate in its determination to combat crime, saying that it was a noble objective.

He urged other emirates and communities in the state to embark on such ‘’missions’’, which would also help in rehabilitating the youths. (NAN)
