Gombe state governor has said Senator Danjuma Goje was behind the mayhem that led to loss of lives and property in the State a few days ago.
Governor Inuwa Yahaya said this while answering questions from State House Correspondents on Tuesday in the state capital.
He said though normalcy has returned to the State, Senator Goje should be held responsible for the violence.
Senator Goje, a former governor of Gombe state now representing Gombe Central at the National Assembly, was accused of sponsoring thugs to cause violence.
According to the Governor, “The security situation in my State is calm now, and people are going about their everyday activities. The issue we had before now was caused by a former Governor of the State, Danjuma Goje, a serving Senator, who you all know.
“He tried causing mayhem, and the people resisted that, but as a result of the skirmish that ensued, lives were lost, and some people’s properties were destroyed.
“That is what we as a government are kicking against. Everybody knows he was the one that brought the killer thugs known as Kalare in Gombe. Still, as the Governor of the State, I will not tolerate Kalare. Whoever is involved in Kalare activities, no matter how highly placed, we will stop him, and we will end Kalare by the Grace of God.”
“The authorities concerned will find out the truth since he has reported so that the matter would be investigated.
“Let’s wait for the outcome of the investigation, but whoever knows the history of Gombe knows who Goje is, and they know who Inuwa (The current Gov) is. People know the difference between us.”
