Boko Haram: ACN, CAN urge FG to tighten security in Bauchi

| June 2, 2013 More

The federal government and the Bauchi State government have been urged to provide adequate security to stop members of the Boko Haram sect from escaping from either Adamawa, Borno or Yobe states into Bauchi state.

The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, and the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, made the call at separate places while addressing newsmen with in Bauchi, yesterday.

CAN said that apart from Bauchi, the security agencies should also beam their searchlights on the other northern states where there is no state of emergency, in order to prevent fresh crises in those areas, saying that miscreants should be stopped from making life difficult for law-abiding members of the society.

The state Secretary of CAN, Rev. Joshua Rai Mains, who reacted to the ongoing military campaign in the three states said that residents of Bauchi State expect tight security in the state to prevent criminals from infiltrating into the state.

The state Chairman of the ACN, Alhaji Bappa Daffida also said that the declaration of state of emergency in the neighbouring three states had triggered movements of people from the affected states to the near-by states, hence security ought to be beefed-up in Bauchi State among others.

He said “I would advise security agents to increase their surveillance because some of these terrorist groups would feel uncomfortable and migrate to neighbouring states”.
