El-Rufai speaks on where Boko Haram are relocating as they are chased by ISWAP from Northeast

The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has disclosed what he referred to as his biggest fear about Boko Haram and ISWAP insurgents. He stated that the greatest fear is that Boko Haram members may relocate to the Northwest from the Northeast.

El-Rufai stated this at an event tagged 'Fountain Summit', which was organized by Ekiti State Government on Thursday, October 14,2021. The Governor therefore requested a concerted effort between the federal and state governments as well as Nigerians in order to fight insurgency.

His words:" Remember once upon a time, Boko Haram was only in the Northeast. Now the biggest fear we have in the northwest is that they are relocating to the Northwest because they are being chased out from the northeast by ISWAP. When they are chased out of the northwest, where do you think they will come? Somewhere else. It is something we should all be concerned about; not only federal and state collaboration, but also across the country.

"Don't see what is happening in Kaduna and say it is not my problem. It will be your problem one day, unless it is solved.

"We have security challenges , but our investors know where their assets are and they know that those assets are safe and we've never seen the headlines of security affecting our inflow of investments. But we must work on improving security or more than that, we must stop this 'us versus them' mentality and collaborate more closely", the Kaduna State Governor concluded.

What do you think about the governor's statement?
