CAN, ACN Seek Tighter Security in Bauchi

| June 3, 2013 More

Bauchi โ€” The federal and Bauchi State governments have been asked to provide adequate security to discourage Boko Haram insurgents escaping from either Adamawa, Borno or Yobe states from using Bauchi State as their sanctuary.

The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, and the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, made the call at separate interviews with Vanguard 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 to prevent fresh crises in those places, 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 on-going military campaign in the three states said that residents of Bauchi State expected tight security in the state to prevent criminals from infiltrating into it.

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 survelliance because some of these terrorist groups would feel uncomfortable and migrate to neighbouring states”.
