Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri of Adamawa state has directed all traditional and political leaders in Dabna community in Garaha ward, Hong local government area that do not reside in the area to within one month come back and stay with the people or otherwise face sanctions.
The Governor visited the area on Sunday to commiserate with the people of Dabna over last week’s attack by unidentified gunmen that left over twenty people dead.
Recall last Wednesday some miscreants attacked the community in the morning hours, burnt down LCCN and Awareness Churches, some selected shops, households, and killed scores of people including some members of vigilante groups.
In a remark, the Speaker Adamawa State House of Assembly, Alhaji Aminu Iya Abbas who frowned over the incessant security threats in the area called on the Government to ensure bad eggs among the dwellers who connive with miscreants to cause mayhem are fished out.
Earlier, the District Head of Dugwaba, Mr Simon Yakubu said the area is prone to security threat owing to its proximity with Sambisa forest and appealed for establishment of military camps between Kopre and Askira as well as Garkida that borders with Borno state.
