Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State, yesterday, raised alarm over influx of Boko Haram members into the state.
According to him, the influx has made the state relatively unsafe, following recent attacks which gave rise to internally displaced persons, IDPs.
The governor, who raised the alarm while playing host to senators in his office in Jalingo, said recent arrests and interrogations by security agents indicated a high rate of influx to the state.
The senators were in the state on fact-finding mission to IDPs camps in the state.
Governor Ishaku said it was the responsibility of the Federal Government to take proactive measures to forestall any breakdown of law and order, urging the senators to evolve ways of tackling issues of insurgency in the country, particularly in the North-East, which had been ravaged by Boko Haram.
Earlier in his speech, leader of the delegation, Senator Kabiru Gaya (Kano South), told the governor that the team was in the state to authenticate the number of IDPs in the state and look into ways of supporting them.
It would be recalled that the senator representing Taraba South, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha, had earlier this year raised at the Senate, alleging high influx of unknown persons into Taraba State.
