Two Borno LGAs under Boko Haram control – Zulum

Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno has disclosed that two Local Government Areas - Abadam and Guzamala - are under the control of Boko Haram.

Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno has disclosed that two Local Government Areas – Abadam and Guzamala – are under the control of Boko Haram.

The governor disclosed this during an interactive session with the Senate Committee on Army, which paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House, Maiduguri, on Wednesday.

He expressed concern over the growing presence of the Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) in the Southern part of Borno.

“I must commend the Nigerian Army for the relative peace in many parts of the state but I want to appeal to the military to take the war against the insurgents and chase them out because ISWAP is currently recruiting fighters in some parts of the state,” he said

“If nothing is done to check and tackle the growing presence of ISWAP fighters who are better armed, better equipped, more deadly, more sophisticated and receive more funds than Boko Haram, it will be disastrous not only to Borno state but the country in the general. They are growing spontaneously and it is not difficult for us to address these problems; we need to pursue ISWAP at this early stage.

“ISWAP fighters are mounting checkpoints between Damboa and Biu, they are collecting taxes from communities because just three days ago, I got security information that they held a party ceremony with over 300 machines. Something needs to be done especially in the axis of Askira, Chibok and Damboa.

“Another issue is that two of our local government headquarters are still under the control of Boko Haram terrorists, Malamfatori in Abadam local government and Guzamala. We want the owners of these two local governments take over, that is the government of Borno state and the two local governments.

“I have commended the Nigerian Army for relative peace in many parts of the state and there is nothing wrong if I ask themĀ  to wake up from the slumber in addressing the problems of ISWAP.”
