Abubakar Sani Bello, the Governor of Niger State, said that the dreaded terrorist group, Boko Haram has captured Kaure, Shiroro Local Government Area of the State and hoist the Boko Haram flag there.
Bello said: ”“I am confirming that there are Boko Haram elements in Niger State, around Kaure.
The governor who stated this during his visit to over 3,000 Internally Displaced Persons from Shiroro and Munya local government areas, said ”I just heard that they’ve already hoist their flag in Kaure.”
According to him, the hoist of the Boko Haram flag at Kaure local government area indicates that they’ve taken over the territory.
”This is what I have been engaging the Federal Government on, and unfortunately it has now got to this stage that if care is not taken, not even Abuja is safe”, he said.
His words: “They’ve taken over the territory, they’ve installed their flag. I am confirming that now. They’ve taken over the wives of people by force.
“Boko Haram elements are trying to use these areas as their home just like they did in Sambisa.
“I have not lost hope from the federal government but I am not waiting for anyone anymore”, he added.
