Boko Haram regrouping in Nasarawa, Governor Sule alerts Buhari

Nasarawa governor Abdullahi Sule has raised the alarm over activities of Boko Haram terrorists in his state.

Sule spoke to State House correspondents on Friday after a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in his office at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja.

According to the governor, Boko Haram terrorists, who were dislodged from a location along the Abuja/Nasarawa borders last year, had regrouped along the Nasarawa/Benue borders, wrecking new forms of havoc.

He said he was with Buhari to discuss the insecurity issue in Nasarawa along with other issues including the possible federal government take-over of Jitata Road, which serves as an alternative route from the state to the FCT.

He said some of the Boko Haram elements active in Nasarawa belonged to the Darussalam group that had been dislodged from Niger, saying that upon a joint security operation, a lot of them were killed while 900 were arrested.

Sule said Nasarawa had continued to have security challenges, noting that having briefed the president, he is confident that action will be taken to curtail the menace.
