Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa State has tasked Brigadier General Mohammed Gambo, the new Brigade Commander of the 23rd Armoured Brigade, with assisting the state in addressing internal security issues.
Fintiri revealed that Boko Haram fighters intend to re-establish their cells in the state to conduct activities.
The governor, who made this known when he met Gambo, added that security organizations are keeping an eye on the situation to make sure the group never succeeds in their plan.
He stated: “I think you are coming at a very critical time. From the security report on my table, the Boko Haram group is trying to establish about two cells within the state in the local governments of Maiha and Hong.
“I am not saying they are there already but all of us know there are indications that they are trying to establish their cell in Maiha. A lot of efforts have gone within the last one or two months to dismantle them.
“We are monitoring them and also making all necessary efforts to ensure we support all the security agencies to make our people sleep with their two eyes closed, and we call on you to to help us to address the internal security challenge.
