The Northern Governors Forum (NGF) has commiserated with the people of Bauchi State and family of the legendary hunter and crime fighter, Alhaji Ali Kwara who died recently.
The chairman of the Forum and Governor of Plateau State, Mr. Simon Bako Lalong, in a message signed by the Director of Press and Public Affairs, Mr. Makut Simon Macham, described the late Kwara as an outstanding hunter who devoted his gifts and energy in the fight against crime in various parts of the country.
He recalled his exploits against bandits, armed robbers and terrorists in most parts of the country, particularly the 19 Northern states, saying his efforts assisted greatly in addressing some of the security challenges of the country.
Governor Lalong said the services of the late Kwara would be seriously missed, particularly because of the assistance he rendered to law enforcement officials in the apprehension of criminals, many of whom were successfully prosecuted.
While praying God to grant the deceased eternal rest, the governor said his legacies would continue to be remembered in the history of crime fighting in the nation.
