Residents of four Local Government Areas (LGAs) in Borno State have been forced to flee their homes due to incessant attacks staged by Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs).
According to the Yobe State Police Command, the LGAs are Gubio, Magumeri, Kaga and Konduga.
TheFact gathered from a statement on Thursday from the Public Relations Officer of Yobe State Police Command, Dungus Abdulkarim, that large movements of migrants from these four LGAs into Yobe State have been observed.
“They are believed to have relocated from their ancestral homes due to incessant attacks by unknown gunmen terrorizing their communities while in search of food items and other valuables”, he said.
Abdulkarim further revealed: “In a proactive move, over two thousand (2000) migrants so far have been profiled by the command for security reasons while the influx of persons into the state is yet ongoing.
“The migrants have so far settled in Geidam, Tarmuwa, and Gujba local government areas of Yobe State as well as Isori, Kuka Reta, Kasesa and Kalallawa Villages around the state capital, Damaturu.”
He also disclosed that the Command has commenced investigation with regards to the cause of the migration while emplacing necessary strategies to ensure public safety as well as prevent criminal elements from taking advantage of the situation.
“In this vein, the Command urges the good people of Yobe State to be vigilant and report all suspicious persons, objects and vehicles to the nearest Police Station or formation”, the statement read.
