Boko Haram: Security report from Nigeria’s North-east “worrisome” – FG

The security report coming from North-eastern Nigeria is worrisome, the federal government has said.

The Minister of Defence, Mansur Dan-Ali, stated this when he briefed journalists at the end of a meeting of security chiefs with President Muhammadu Buhari.

Mr Dan-Ali said the meeting was a routine security briefing with Mr Buhari, and an update of the August 2 meeting held before the president’s departure to London for vacation.

Mr Buhari returned from London on Saturday.

At the meeting, President Muhammadu Buhari directed security chiefs in the country to step up their game, an official said after the almost three hours meeting.

The meeting started at about 11.30 a.m. and ended at 2 p.m. in the State House, Abuja. It is one of Mr Buhari’s first major­ assignments since returning from London on Saturday.

“The decision that has been taken is that we have seen that there is a lot of improvement in the security situation in the country more especially in Zamfara and Benue state and in the Niger Delta,” Mr Dan-Ali said.

“In the North-east, we are having worrisome report, we have looked into it critically and we have taken absolute decision,” he said without elaborating on the “absolute decisions” taken.

The North-east is the part of Nigeria most affected by the Boko Haram insurgency. The terror group’s activities have been largely limited to the three North-eastern states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe by security forces.

Despite the efforts of the soldiers, however, the terror group is still able to carry out attacks on soldiers and civilians.
