Boko Haram Invades Four Bauchi LGAs

Published by Nairaland on Mon, 03 May 2021


<blockquote>The Bauchi State Government has raised an alarm over the influx of suspected Boko Haram fighters in four local government areas of the state that share a border with Geidam, Yobe State which was recently attacked and taken over by the insurgents.<br><br>The Secretary to the Bauchi State Government, Sabiu Baba, made this known at a press conference after an emergency security council meeting held at the Government House, Bauchi on Monday and presided over by governor Bala Mohammed.<br><br><b>He said that the suspected terrorists who have infiltrated Zaki, Dambam, Darazo, and Gamawa local government areas have launched an attack on a communication mast belonging to the Mobile TeleCommunication Network and carted away some of the properties.<br><br>He said, There was an emergency security council meeting of Bauchi State this afternoon and the meeting was to look into the attack by Boko Haram in Geidam (Yobe State) and the take over of that town and the implications for Bauchi State.</b><br><br><b>Bauchi state is sharing border with Yobe State in four local government areas of Zaki, Dambam, Darazo, and Gamawa. The implications of what has happened in Geidam is that there is a lot of influx of people moving into Bauchi State from Yobe.</b><br><br>Its wrong to reintegrate ex-terrorists when Boko Haram fighters are still killing peopleDean, Borno Elders Forum<br>Of course, that will put a lot of strain on our facilities and resources, and considering the kind of movement out of Boko Haram activities, the security implications there are also very high.<br><br>The meeting today was to discuss the implications of that, identify the security threats and how to contain them from the Bauchi side.<br><br>Security is the collective duty of all and we do not expect the security agencies alone to tackle this problem, so all hands must be on deck including traditional and religious leaders and all groups.<br><br>It will be expected that we will continue to profile whoever is coming into the state. I can tell you that some people coming into the state, come in with weapons and it is the profiling that will help us stem that kind of problem. </blockquote><br><a rel=ugc href="https://punchng.com/breaking-boko-haram-fighters-invade-four-bauchi-lgas/'utm_medium=Social&amp;utm_source=Twitter&amp;amp&amp;utm_medium=Social&amp;utm_source=Twitter&amp;__twitter_impression=true">SOURCE </a>
