Boko Haram insurgents from neighboring Yobe State have infiltrated four local government areas of Bauchi State, destroying some facilities.

The Secretary to the Bauchi State Government (SSG), Alhaji Sabiu Baba, disclosed this at a press conference on Monday.

He listed Zaki, Gamawa, Darazo and Dambam as some of the affected Local Government Areas.

The insurgents reportedly vandalised telecommunication masts in Gamawa.

Baba said security operatives arrested five persons in connection with the vandalism of the telecommunication mast in Gamawa, adding that already the state government has beefed up security around the neighboring communities.

He said the state government has identified some security threats associated with influx of people into the state from Yobe where Boko Haram has been wreaking havoc.

Baba said Governor Bala Mohammed has provided the needed support to security operatives to intensify patrol and surveillance, especially border communities with Yobe.

On the issue of the displaced persons, Baba assured that the state government will work with the affected communities to identify internally displaced persons so as to provide them with urgent support to alleviate their sufferings.

In his remark at the briefing, Bauchi State Commissioner of Police, Sylvester Abiodun Alabi, assured that the police will partner with sister security agencies to ensure security of lives and property.

He equally appeal to residents to give relevant information to security agents on activities of criminals and avoid giving cover to evil-minded people.
