We’ve Reclaimed All Local Governments Taken Over By Boko Haram In Borno, Adamawa, President Buhari Says Despite Rising Killings In Region

President Muhammadu Buhari  made a claim in his Democracy Day broadcast on Friday. He said, “In the area of security, we remain unshaken in our resolve to protect our national

infrastructure including on-shore and off-shore oil
installations, secure our territorial waters and end piracy in the Gulf of Guinea.”All the local governments that were taken over
by the Boko Haram insurgents in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa have long been recovered and are
now occupied by indigenes of these areas who were hitherto forced to seek a living in areas far from their ancestral homes.”I regret recent sporadic incidents with tragic loss of lives in Katsina and Borno states as a
result of criminals taking advantage of COVID-19 restrictions.Security agencies will pursue the perpetrators and bring them to swift justice.”I must implore state and local governments to revamp their intelligence assets so that the security agencies can nip in the bud any planned
attacks in remote rural areas. I send my heartfelt
condolences to all the relatives and communities
affected.”However, Buhari’s claim comes amidst a fresh wave of attacks by Boko Haram insurgents in
Yobe, Borno,Adamawa and renewed activities of
bandits and killer herdsmen in Southern Kaduna,
Katsina and Sokoto that has left dozens dead and hundreds more homeless and without hope. “The total collapse of the economies of these
areas, which constituted a threat to our food security,has also been reversed with the gradual recovery of farming and other economic activities.he said
