Police get nine APCs to protect Mallam-Fatori

Borno State Government has ordered nine Armored Personnel Carriers (APCs) for the police to provide protection to returnees in the border town of Mallam-Fatori, Abadam Local Government Area.  

Governor Babagana Umara Zulum alongside the Commissioner of Police, Abdu Umar, Thursday inspected three units of the vehicles which were delivered in Maiduguri. 

He said the APCs would ‘hopefully’ enhance operations of a special police unit towards restoring civil authority in Malam-Fatori and complimenting the military.

Malam-Fatori, which came under insurgents’ occupation in 2014, has a number of communities sharing borders with the Niger Republic. Insurgents controlled the area for six years before the military liberated it, but so far, without civilians. 

The governor had last month led residents and government officials to embark on the clearance of Malam-Fatori to pave the way for the reconstruction of public facilities and private homes towards safe and voluntary resettlement of residents, who had fled to the Niger Republic since 2014.
