The Yobe State Government has pledged sustained logistic support for the security agencies in the fight against Boko Haram insurgency in the state.
The state’s Deputy Governor, Mr Idi Barde-Gubana, gave the assurance in Damaturu on Wednesday, shortly before an emergency security meeting summoned on behalf of Gov. Mai Mala-Buni.
He said that the meeting was to review existing security strategies in the state in order to achieve effective results.
“We are here to highlight more on security issues concerning our dear state.
“This is essential especially now that we are approaching dry season when rivers will dry up and there will be frequent movement of Boko Haram terrorists across our boundaries with Borno State, Chad and Niger Republic.
“We are looking at how best to provide logistic support for the security agencies for the maintenance of peace,” he said.
Barde-Gubana urged the security agencies to reciprocate government’s gesture by redoubling their efforts towards tackling terrorism and other security challenges facing the state.
Yobe State has witnessed renewed Boko Haram attacks and farmers/herders clashes in recent times.
