The Governor of Nasarawa state, Abdullahi Sule, says on Friday that Boko haram terrorists are regrouping in the state in large numbers.
The governor raised the alarm during an interview with journalists after a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in his office at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The governor said members of the terror group, who were dislodged from a location along the Abuja/Nasarawa borders last year, had regrouped along the Nasarawa/Benue borders, wrecking new forms of havoc.
He said some of the Boko Haram elements active in the state belong to the Darussalam group that had been dislodged from Niger, adding that upon a joint security operation, a lot of them were killed while 900 were arrested.
Sule said he was with the president to discuss the insecurity issue in Nasarawa along with other issues including the possible federal government take-over of Jitata Road, which serves as an alternative route from the state to the FCT.
