A report from Peoples Gazette confirmed that leaders of the dreaded Boko Haram sect and their foot soldiers have relocated from Sambisa forest in Borno State to Rijana forest in Chikun local government area of Kaduna State. The report further revealed that the Secret Security Services(SSS) have asked various security agencies in the state to "step up surveillance and intelligence gathering".
This information might spell doom for Kaduna State, as it is currently battling with incessant attacks from bandits. A day hardly passes by without a report of abduction or killing in the state. A few days back, primary and secondary schools across the state were reopened after months of closure due to insecurity.
The relocation of terrorists to the state should be a cause for concern to the state government, as it might affect the recently opened schools. It should be noted that Boko Haram are vehemently against western education and are also notorious for attacking schools.
Furthermore, bandits who are currently under attack from the military might be tempted to join forces with the terrorist group, which will be disastrous to the state and the country at large.
The government should take proactive measures to protect the lives of students in the state. Schools located close to Rijana forest should be closed down for the main time. The military, on the other hand, should bombard the forest with the Super Tucano fighter jet.
