Ishaku raises the alarm over plan to set up terrorist camps in Taraba
Taraba State Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku has again raised the alarm over plan by terrorists to take advantage of the state.
Ishaku, who disclosed this, yesterday, while signing into law the 2022 budget, said intelligence gathering showed that terrorists had concluded plan to establish camps in the state.
He said that to frustrate the plan, traditional rulers must, as a matter of urgency, desist from accommodating unknown persons in their domains.
He said: “Security is my priority. I have talked to the traditional chiefs not to allow strangers in their settlements.”
The governor, while reiterating his determination to bring to book any person or group of persons playing host to strangers, alerted that fleeing terrorists from the neighbouring Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states were said to be converging in some local councils of the state planning to execute their trade.
He, however, lauded the efforts of the state House of Assembly for the timely passage into law the 2022 Appropriation Bill.
He said the lawmakers’ action was an indication that the executive was in the same page with the House of Assembly.
The governor, who also ceased the opportunity to passed a vote of confidence on the Speaker, Joseph Albasu Kunini, said such a cordial relationship had enabled the citizens to reap the fruits of democracy.
