Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State has expressed concern over the inability of the state governors to control the security agencies in their respective states, to check activities of criminal groups.
As the chief security officers of their respective states, Ishaku said the governors are supposed to have control over the security establishments to assist them in securing their states.
Ishaku speaking while receiving his Gombe counterpart, Ibrahim Dankwambo, at the Government House in Jalingo, regrets that all the security agencies in the 36 states are under effective control of the federal government.
The governor, however, said the governors have enormous responsibilities to protect lives and properties of people in their respective states.
Governor Ishaku whose state is one of the battleground between farmers and herdsmen, says most of the killer herdsmen are foreign militia.
