Published by The Nation on Mon, 03 May 2021


By David Adenuga BauchiBauchi State Government has raised the alarm over infiltration of four Local Government Areas by Boko Haram following vandalisation of a telecommunication mast in Gamawa.It said the influx of people from neighboring Yobe where a recent attack by Boko Haram in Geidam community occurred has made the affected LGAs vulnerable to terrorists.Addressing newsmen at the Government House Bauchi on Monday shortly after an emergency meeting between the Governor and head of security agencies, the Secretary to the State Government, SSG, Alhaji Sabiu Baba, said five people have been arrested in connection with the mast vandalisation.The SSG said the act by the suspected terrorists who had the intention of blocking communication in preparation of attacks points to imminent danger.He identified the affected LGAs as Gamawa, Zaki, Dambam and Darazo.He however assured the State Government was working round the clock to beef up security surveillance around neighboring communities.This influx of the displaced people has put the state under security threat, our facilities are now overstretched and we are not comfortable with the development.Read Also:Abuja not under Boko Haram attack, say policeSecurity strategies have been developed to ensure the threat does not turn into attack in the state. We have decided to commence profiling of all the people coming into Bauchi State particularly in the four affected LGAs will be done to discover those with dangerous weapons and demonise them, he said.He added: The State Government will ensure the joint operations of the security agencies will be intensified particularly air surveillance around the affected LGAs.Some bandits have been arrested for vandalising the MTN installation in Gamawa LGA with the intention of blocking communication in the area in preparation for attack.As for those that are displaced persons, government officials will identify them in order to provide relief materials for their well-being because government will not just watch them suffer.The gateway LGAs are Gamawa, Dambam, Darazo and Zaki which are sharing boundaries with Yobe state and close to the seized Geidam by Boko Haram militants.The SSG stated Governor Bala Mohammed has provided the needed support to security agencies to intensify patrol and surveillance, particularly in the vulnerable communities, which share border with Yobe.
