…Appeals to FG for more security Intervention
Governor Zulum stated this when he visited Jakana town barely 24 hours after his first visit.The Governor’s visit was aimed at building community resilience.
Zulum’s visit was necessitated by the recent security threat around Jakana general area. Zulum thereafter proceeded to Mainok, another community along Maiduguri – Damaturu highway on a similar mission.
Governor Zulum strongly warned that anyone aiding criminal activities would severely face the wrath of the law.
The Governor in his separate remarks both Mainok and Jakana pleaded with the federal government and the Nigerian military to redress their decision on evacuating the two communities.
“Government of Borno does not support the evacuation of this two communities. Simply because, we don’t want to create another humanitarian crisis not only to the two communities but to the entire people of Borno state. Non existence of people from Jakana and Mainok would simply lead to the closure of of Maiduguri-Damaturu highway. This However entails, cutting off food supplies to Maiduguri. We are appealing to the federal government, Nigerian military to provide more security that would secure the communities as well as the road.” Zulum said.
