Borno State now safer than Abuja, Sokoto, Zamfara – Governor Shettima boasts

Kashim Shettima, the Borno State governor has stated that the state is much safer now when compared to states like Sokoto, Zamfara, Katsina as well as the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.

While justify his assertion, Governor Shettima said that Borno State is safer now because there are hardly issues of kidnapping, banditry and other related crimes as obtained in other states.

The governor made this known on Wednesday when the Chairman House Committee on Army, Rima Shawulu and other members of the House of Representatives were received during a courtesy call at the Government House, Maiduguri.

The Governor said: “At the moment the military alongside other security agencies are doing all they can in Borno state, the only problem right now is the poor publicity accorded to our military operations.

“Let’s take for example, in a case where Boko Haram attacks and kill even one person, it will be celebrated on the front page of our newspapers but when military kill dozens of insurgents and capture several others alive, such success against the insurgents will be published in a small corner of our newspapers.

“At the moment, Borno state is safer than Abuja, Zamfara, Katsina, Sokoto and other volatile states of the nation.

We in Borno State do not have any issue of kidnapping or banditry, and I so much believe that very soon we will overcome our security challenges.”
