Taraba State governor, Darius Ishaku on Thursday said fleeing Boko Haram members are relocating from Sambisa forest in Borno state to Suntai Daaji forest in the state.
Ishaku made this statement when the general officer commanding (GOC) of 82 army division, Enugu, Major Gen. Adamu Abubakar, paid him a courtesy visit in Jalingo, capital of his state.
He said deployment of special forces to the state was necessary to fish out the regrouping Boko Haram insurgents and other terrorists in the state.
Ishaku said; “The massive influx of people into Taraba for some time now has been the major cause of insecurity,” .
“But when I was warning of the repercussions, I was accused of being against visitors, but today all of us are victims of their criminal activities.
“The terrorists are today committing all sorts of criminal activities, including rape, kidnapping and killings.
“People can’t travel freely on Bali-Suntai-Takum road among several other routes any longer in the state.”
