The Governor of Taraba state, Darius Ishaku has said that members of the Boko Haram sect are relocating to Taraba state.

Ishaku said the members of the sect who escaped from Sambisa forest in Borno state have found their way to Suntai Daaji forest in Taraba.

The Governor said this while speaking with the General Officer Commanding (GOC) of 82 Army Division, Enugu, Major General Adamu Abubakar.

He also called on the military authorities to deploy soldiers to help dislodge the terrorists.

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

“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 Nigerian Army onslaught against members of the Boko haram led to the recent capture of Sambisa forest and arrest of some of their top leaders.

However, the Nigerian government, in a bid to secure the release of the kidnapped Chibok girls, released Boko Haram leaders who were arrested during the Army operations, as part of a deal with the sect.

Do you think the government should have released the Boko Haram leaders?
