Dislodged Boko Haram group relocate to Taraba forest from Sambisa

The Islamic terror group, Boko Haram waging a bloody war against the Nigerian Army in the North East has opened a new front in their quest to establish an Islamic caliphate in Nothern Nigeria.

The bloodthirsty terror group ousted from their spiritual base in the Sambisa forest of Bornu and Yobe states by the Nigeria military late last year are believed to have relocated to Suntai Daaji forest in Taraba state.

The troubling information was provided by Taraba State Governor, Daruis Ishiaku, when the GOC of 82 army division, Enugu, Adamu Abubakar, a major general, paid him a courtesy visit in Jalingo, capital of his state.

The governor, therefore, requested the deployment of special security forces in the state to root out “the regrouping Boko Haram insurgents and other terrorists in the state”.

“The massive influx of people into Taraba for some time now has been the major cause of insecurity,” Ishaku said.

“But when I was warning of the repercussions, I was accused of being against visitors, but today all of us are victims of their criminal activities.

“The terrorists are today committing all sorts of criminal activities, including rape, kidnapping, and killings.

“People can’t travel freely on Bali-Suntai-Takum road among several other routes any longer in the state.

The GOC said he was in the state to address the issue of farmers/herdsmen clashes as well as the general security situation in the state.

He called for dialogue among parties and active collaboration among the security agencies so as to end the security challenges facing the state.
