Yobe State Governor, Ibrahim Gaidam has called on security agencies to increase their surveillance mechanism, following incessant Boko Haram attacks at soft targets in the state and other parts of the North-East.
Governor Gaidam also charged residents of the state to remain vigilant about happenings in their areas and report any suspicious person(s) or movements to the nearest security point or jurisdiction.
According to a statement issued yesterday by his Director of Press Affairs, Abdullahi Bego and made available to newsmen, Gaidam described yesterday’s suicide bombing of Damaturu Sunday Market as callous, barbaric and unjustifiable.
Bego said the Governor has been briefed about the horrific bomb attack in a market in Damaturu in which 19 people were killed and many others injured.
Part of the statement reads: “This is another sad day in our state in which innocent people were again the target of blood-thirsty terrorists. His Excellency, Governor Gaidam’s thoughts and prayers are with the families of victims and those who sustained injuries.
“The governor has condemned the attack as callous, barbaric and unjustifiable. He has also called on security agencies in the state to step up surveillance and the people to remain very vigilant about happenings in their areas and report any suspicious persons or movements to the nearest security point or jurisdiction.
“The governor has also directed hospital authorities at the Sani Abacha Specialist Hospital, Damaturu, where the injured have been taken for medical attention to provide immediate and free medical attention to victims.
“His Excellency the governor has also reminded people about the need not to relent in prayers for Almighty Allah (SWT) to help restore peace and security in our state and our country.”
