“At this point, I want to call on all the affected communities to remain law abiding and not take law into their hands as the State Government is working tirelessly to ensure justice is being done in boarder communities.”

On his part, NBC’s Director General, Surveyor Adamu Adaji explained that the exercise was designed to generate relevant data in addition to the physical assessment of the disputed communities through geographical location, historical background and their appreciation of the boundary alignment.
