No fewer than four Local Government Areas of Bauchi State have been reportedly attacked by the Boko Haram insurgents.

This is just as the Bauchi State Government raised an alarm over the influx of terrorists in four local government areas of the state.

According to the government, the four LGAs share a border with Geidam, Yobe State which was recently attacked and taken over by the insurgents.

The latest development was made known by the Secretary to the Bauchi State Government, Sabiu Baba, at a press conference after an emergency security council meeting held at the Government House, Bauchi on Monday.

The meeting was presided over by the Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed.

Baba stated that the suspected terrorists, who have infiltrated Zaki, Dambam, Darazo, and Gamawa local government areas, have launched an attack on a communication mast belonging to the Mobile TeleCommunication Network and carted away some of the properties.

“There was an emergency security council meeting of Bauchi State this afternoon and the meeting was to look into the attack by Boko Haram in Geidam (Yobe State) and the take over of that town and the implications for Bauchi State.

“Bauchi state is sharing border with Yobe State in four local government areas of Zaki, Dambam, Darazo, and Gamawa. The implications of what has happened in Geidam is that there is a lot of influx of people moving into Bauchi State from Yobe.”

He added, “Of course, that will put a lot of strain on our facilities and resources, and considering the kind of movement out of Boko Haram activities, the security implications there are also very high.

“The meeting today was to discuss the implications of that, identify the security threats and how to contain them from the Bauchi side.

“Security is the collective duty of all and we do not expect the security agencies alone to tackle this problem, so all hands must be on deck including traditional and religious leaders and all groups.

“It will be expected that we will continue to profile whoever is coming into the state. I can tell you that some people coming into the state, come in with weapons and it is the profiling that will help us stem that kind of problem,” Baba said.
