The people of Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State, where over 200 female students of the Government Girls’ Secondary School, GGSS, were abducted by Boko Haram Islamic militants have lamented the recent threats from the insurgents to the community..
According to the community head speaking in Maiduguri who did not want his name mentioned, the sect wrote a letter informing members of the community of their plans to attack the local government again.
The community leader said they approached the police with the said letter but the officers complained of lack of fuel for their vehicles, as the ban on the sale of fuel in the local government for fear that insurgents would use it to burn houses made it impossible to access the commodity.
“Whenever Boko Haram tell you that they are coming, they never fail to come. Our fears now is that, we do not know when and how they are going to come but our people are in great fear. We are calling for prayers as well as the government to provide adequate security in Chibok.”
He, however, stressed that the local government assured the security operatives that it would buy the fuel for them and also pleaded for more reinforcement from their headquarters as the number of security personnel might not be enough.
