Boko Haram members are expanding their network across three local government areas of Nasarawa State, Governor Abdullahi Sule has raised an alarm.
Sule had alerted in January during a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari that the insurgents were regrouping in the Benue border after their dislodgment by the special forces from Toto local government area.
However, the governor during an expanded Security Council meeting at
the Government House, Lafia on Monday said the insurgents, who were mostly members of the Daru Salam group, are expanding their network across Wamba, Nasarawa and Karu local government areas.
21st Century Chronicle reports that Daru Salam group was dislodged from Niger State during the administration of Mua’zu Babaginda Aliyu, some of whom reportedly merged with Boko Haram.
“They have actually re-grouped in places like Bakono, Kabusu, Pander, Danbata and Gidan Rice in Nasarawa, Wamba and Karu LGAs,” the governor explained.
