Boko Haram Infiltrates Four Local Councils In Bauchi State

The Bauchi State Government has indicated that reports that Boko Haram has infiltrated four Local Government Areas in the state are true.

This comes after the vandalization of a telecommunication mast in Gamawa and this was confirmed by the Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Sabiu Baba.

He confirmed this while addressing newsmen after an emergency meeting between the Governor and head of security agencies.

In his submission, he said;

“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.

Security 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.

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.”
