Everyone knows Boko Haram’s whereabouts – Zulum

NEWS DIGEST – The Borno State Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum, on Tuesday declared that the whereabouts of Boko Haram is known to everyone.

Mr Zulum said the whereabouts of “these criminals are known to everyone, the military, security agencies, the traditional rulers and most members of the public,” insisting that all we need is to take the war to their doorsteps.

Speaking in Maiduguri at the North-east Security Summit organised by the Office of the inspector general of police and hosted by the Borno state government, the governor said to end this war, “we must take the fight to these criminals. The war should be fought at their doorsteps.”

Mr Zulum called on the governments in the region never to allow any of its citizen to be displaced by the Boko Haram terrorists again.He said: “We have to understand that the absence of human population in some areas is largely responsible for the prolonged insurgency.

“Under no circumstances should the governor of any state in the North-east region allow any of the citizen to be displaced by Boko Haram terrorists again.”

According to him, “The whereabouts of the criminals is well known to all of us . It is well known to the Nigerian military, it is well known to the Nigerian police, the Civil Defence and the DSS.

“Therefore, the only solution is to take the fight to the corridors of the insurgents. Another most important thing we need to understand in the sub-region is the issue of restoring civil authority to the region.

“We have to understand that the absence of human population in some areas is largely responsible for the prolonged insurgency.

“Under no circumstances should the governor of any state in the North-east region allow any of the citizen to be displaced by Boko Haram terrorists again.”
