Boko Haram Regroup In Nasarawa, Causing Havoc, Gov Sule Alerts President Buhari

Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State has ran to President Muhammadu Buhari, asking him to do something urgent against members of the outlawed Book Haram who are currently regrouping in borders with Benue State.

Speaking to newsmen shortly after a private audience with the President today, January 22 at the Presidential villa, Abuja, Governor Sule said that his state after the challenge with a team of Boko Haram who settled at the border with the FCT was addressed then as they were dislodged by the security forces, “now, they have gone back and gathered at our border with Benue. And they are causing a lot of havoc.”

The Governor said that his government confirmed their status as Boko Haram fighters from the families of those who were killed during their first appearance in the state.

“If you remember, they used to gather at a place called Utu in Toto Local Government Area. When I came here the last time, I appealed to Mr President. Then, the department of State Services (DSS), the Police, the Air Force, and the Army  had a joint operation. And they were able to dislodge them. When they dislodged them, a lot of them were killed. “Some of them ran away and left members of their families. We took hostage of about 900 members of their families in Lafia, including children and wives.

“The Special Forces which we have in Doma, Nasarawa State, took the hostages. A lot of interrogations were done and most of them confirmed that they were indeed Boko Haram.

“In fact, they gave us the name of the person who used to be like the second-in-command to Shekau. So, during the interrogation, they confirmed themselves that they were indeed Boko Haram. Some of them said they were remnants of Darussalam group that were dislodged from Niger.

“They came, merged, and became Boko Haram. That is how we got our confirmation that they were indeed Boko Haram. They said it themselves.”
