Taraba Gov Expresses Worry Over Boko Haram

By Bright Bassey

Governor of Taraba State, Darius Ishaku, on Tuesday voiced concern over the penetration of Boko Haram members into the state.

The governor raised the alarm, when he hosted senators on fact-finding to the IDP camps.

Ishaku said the influx has made the state insecure for residents to live in, after the recent attacks which resulted to internally displaced persons, IDPs. He further explained interrogations by security agents implied a high rate of influx of the jihadist group into the state.

Governor Ishaku said it was up the Federal Government to stand up and control the situation by taking action to prevent breakdown of law and order.

He urged the senators gradually come up with ideas to deal with the issue of insurgency in the country, especially in the North East.

Recall that earlier this year, Emmanuel Bwacha, representing Taraba South raised an allegation that there was a high influx of unknown persons into the state.
