Niger State governor, Umaru Bago, has threatened to arrest any person who protests against his administration’s decision to establish the Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida University Teaching Hospital in Minna, the state capital.

Recall that the state government had awarded a contract for the conversion of the defunct Shiroro Hotel in Minna to IBBU teaching hospital, instead of Lapai where the university is situated.
The decision, however, didn’t sit well with some students and indigenes of Lapai town, who demanded the establishment of the teaching hospital in the same local government area.

“I heard that some little pests are planning to protest against the establishment of IBBUTH in Minna. May God give them the courage to carry out the protest.

“But if they make their threats, they will know who Bago is. I will lock them up with their parents. There are no doubts about that. And after that, I will chase them out of Lapai permanently,” Bago said.
