Senator Emmanuel Bwacha (PDP-Taraba), on Wednesday appealed to the Federal Government to establish a military barracks in Wukari to help secure lives and property in the area.
Bwacha, who raised the matter through a Point of Order, told the senators that reports from the area indicated that a helicopter was seen dropping materials and personnel in the area, suspected to be insurgents.
He said urgent security measures should be put in place to dislodge the alleged attackers before they set up a base in the area.
“I will appeal to Mr President that a barracks should be established in this same flash point, Wukari in particular, so that this will safeguard lives and property.
“It is believed that a helicopter is dropping materials and personnel around there and we fear that this may be another Sambisa that is in the making in Taraba.
He appealed to the president to take urgent action on the recent resolution by the Taraba House of Assembly for the Federal Government to take over the security in the state.
