Insurgents Recruiting More Members, North East Govs Tell PMB
State governors from the North East geopolitical zone of the country appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to address the causes of the deteriorating security situation in the zone without further delay, lamenting that the rate at which more members were being recruited into terror groups in the region calls for concern.
At a security meeting with the president and security chiefs at the presidential villa, the governors recommended that more sophisticated equipment should be provided for the Nigeria Police Force in order to cover the manpower deficit in the nation’s military.
Borno State governor, Prof Babagana Zulum, disclosed these to State House correspondents at the end of the meeting.
The meeting was attended by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Service Chiefs, Inspector-general of Police, Mohammed Adamu, and the heads of intelligence agencies.
