– Leaders and Citizens of Borno are not Safe Anymore – Shehu of Borno
– Reintroduce planting trees
The Borno State cleric leader has cried out on the security challenges facing the state.
Shehu of Borno made the outburst at the state’s government house when he said the leaders and citizens of Borno states are not safe anymore from the hands of Boko insurgent.
The Shehu, in response to the attack on the convoy of Governor Babagana Umara Zulum, made this lamentation in Maiduguri when he paid traditional Sallah homage on the Governor at the Government House.
The Governor’s convoy was last Wednesday shot at at Baga town in Kukawa local government area during a visit to the area.
The Shehu, during his homage on the governor, said: “Your Excellency, we are not happy about what has happened in Baga the other time, it is very unfortunate and great pity. If the convoy of the whole Chief Security Officer of the state will be attacked, then wallahi nobody is safe, because he is the number one citizen of the state, he is the Chief Security Officer of the State.
If a convoy of such highly placed person in the State will be attacked, I repeat, nobody is safe. The matter is getting worse, I urge everyone to raise up our hands to seek for Allah’s intervention.”
Speaking on the environment, the Shehu lamented on the high rate at which trees were cut in the state, urging the state government to take urgent steps in mitigating this dangerous act before it leads to a serious environmental problem.
He called for the reintroduction of tree planting which was a regular practice in the past.
Governor Zulum thanked the Shehu for the visit and assured him of Government’s readiness to address the issues raised by him.
Meanwhile, the governor has earlier raised a question about the information being disclosed about the Boko Haram terrorists by the military service.
He further threatened to relocate the military base closed to the location of his attack and replace them with local securities.
