Babandede claimed the country’s border had been under control since the introduction of the Migration Information and Data Analysis Systems.
When asked about NIS’s line of action over claims of alleged killing and kidnapping of citizens by herdsmen in various states of the country, James, speaking on behalf of the NIS boss stated that he (Babandede) had just returned from an official tour of Adamawa State and that “no armed herdsman was seen during the over 57km drive near the borders.”
