April 17, 2017 (SSB) — I would like to take this opportunity to thank Gok Youth for the love of their State. I have education they have received is important as they are assets to Gok State. With such good education, Gok youth are going to contribute to development to Gok State in the near future and even now.

However, I have received the information from credible source that there some young people among the youth who have turned themselves into spies or informants against their brothers and sisters in the State, which has resulted into arrest of several youth whose names I shall mention shortly.

But first, I would like to warn those informants or spies who are prosecuting some Gok Members for their own benefits. Hence, giving away very strong youth to authorities who arrested them on unsubstantiated allegations and because of that, many youth are now relinquishing behind filthy bars in Gok State.

April 17, 2017 (SSB) — The current situation in the country is so disheartening. It has been a great concern to me. It is so pathetic that a country that became an independent state, July 2001, has been crippled by ethnic conflict which began December, 2013.
