Four local government areas of Bauchi State government that share a border with Geidam, Yobe state have been stormed by the Boko Haram fighters.
This development was confirmed in a press conference by Secretary to the Bauchi State Government, Sabiu Baba during an emergency security council meeting which took place at the Government House, Bauchi on Monday, May 2.

Saidu made it known that Zaki, Dambam, Darazo and Gawama were the four local governments which were attacked. In the meeting presided over by Governor Bala Mohammed, Saidu said the insurgents have launched a massive attack on a communication mast owned by Mobile Telecommunication Network and made away with some valuables.
“There was an emergency security council meeting of Bauchi State this afternoon and the meeting was to look into the attack by Boko Haram in Geidam (Yobe State) and the take over of that town and the implications for Bauchi State.
Bauchi state is sharing border with Yobe State in four local government areas of Zaki, Dambam, Darazo, and Gamawa. The implications of what has happened in Geidam is that there is a lot of influx of people moving into Bauchi State from Yobe.
Of course, that will put a lot of strain on our facilities and resources, and considering the kind of movement out of Boko Haram activities, the security implications there are also very high.
The meeting today was to discuss the implications of that, identify the security threats and how to contain them from the Bauchi side.”
Security is the collective duty of all and we do not expect the security agencies alone to tackle this problem, so all hands must be on deck including traditional and religious leaders and all groups.
It will be expected that we will continue to profile whoever is coming into the state. I can tell you that some people coming into the state, come in with weapons and it is the profiling that will help us stem that kind of problem.”
