THE TRUE SITUATION IN THE NORTH - EAST: Sen Kaka Garbai

THE TRUE SITUATION IN THE NORTH EAST- Sen Kaka Garbai APC Sen  Rep Borno Central.

“They actually got the signal a few days before the attack that the insurgents were likely to attack them, they reported
to the constituted authorities but nothing was done. I will like to appeal to the military to intensify their effort in ensuring they beef up security around the villages and communities that share borders with Maiduguri metropolis. It is very important and more so that this place is porous, there could be attack from any direction.”
“It is a wrong assumption that most of the local governments in Borno are recaptured from the Boko Haram. In reality this is not true in the sense that apart from Maiduguri Metropolis, Bayo and Kwaya Kusar, these are the three local government that are under the occupation of the Nigerian government where the military and police are maintaining law and order.
“Mobbar, Abadam and Kala Balge are 100 percent occupied by the insurgents. There are some local governments that
are partially occupied by the insurgents especially as the local government secretariats have been liberated but their
hither-lands are still controlled by the insurgents.”
Garba “though Gwoza town has been liberated there
still remain six wards in Gwoza local government area still
occupied by the insurgents.”
“From my count, only three local government are fully liberated, 21 local governments partially occupied by
insurgents, that is there is still some level of Boko Haram occupation side by side the military or any other constituted
authority. The local government fully occupied by Boko Haram are Abadam, Mobbar and Kala Balge.’

“We should not live under the illusion that
Boko Haram are decimated or weaken, these are not reality and neither a true reflection of the reality. The reality is that
most of the local government in Borno is partially occupied by Boko Haram.”
“If the people are moved back to their homelands you are making them vulnerable to attack. Unless you
provide maximum security and return of law and order in these areas, relocating these people would be endangering their lives.”

Baba Kaka Garbai, APC SENATOR REPRESENTING BORNO CENTRAL.
