Let us provide more security cover for them and properly integrate them to enable to them to have a sense of belonging.
Gov. Muhammadu Jibrilla of Adamawa on Tuesday urged the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) to intensify border patrol in the state for the safety of border communities.
Jibrilla made the call on Tuesday while receiving the newly-posted Area Controller of Customs in charge of Adamawa and Taraba, Mr Emmanuel Edede, who paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House, Yola.
He said that some communities in the state were located in the extreme border between the state and the Republic of Cameroon.
"We have some communities who are at the extreme border with the republic of Cameroon, though they are Nigerians and not Cameroonians.
"Let us provide more security cover for them and properly integrate them to enable to them to have a sense of belonging.
"On our part, we will continue to support the NCS under your command and we will intensify our partnership with you," the governor said.
Earlier, Edede said his visit was to introduce himself to the governor and declare his readiness to work with the state government.
