Borno State Deputy Governor, Umar Kadafur, has solicited the support of the Nigeria Immigration Service to curb illegal migration and other cross-border crimes in the state.

Kadafur made the call on Friday in Maiduguri while receiving the Assistant Controller General in charge of Zone C, Abubakar Kankara, who paid him a courtesy visit.

Kadafur said that the Immigration as a critical stakeholder in the security apparatus, has a vital role to play in the implementation of the state’s 25-Year Development Plan.

The Deputy Governor assured NIS of government’s sustained support for its operations in the state.

Earlier, Kankara said that his team was in Borno on tour of the formations in the zone.

He said that the tour would afford the team the opportunity to discuss intelligence gathering and information sharing on how to secure the borders against the influx of illegal migrants into the country.

Kankara pledged the readiness of the service to support the government in the implementation of its 25 years State Development Plan, particularly in the area of documentation for those coming from outside the country to invest in the state.
