Gov. Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State has sought urgent presidential intervention to check the dastardly activities of dislodged Boko Haram insurgents along the Benue/Nasarawa border.
The governor said this on Friday while briefing State House correspondents after a closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said that the terrorists, who were dislodged from Toto Local Government Area where they had camped, had regrouped at the Nasarawa/Benue border from where they were causing havoc on the State.
He said some of the Boko Haram elements active in Nasarawa State belong to the Darussalam group that was dislodged from Niger State.
The governor said that he also updated the president on other socio-economic issues including the possible Federal Government take-over of the construction work on Jitata road, which serves as an alternative route from the State to the Federal Capital Territory.
Sule expressed the hope that the road, when completed, would open up the area for development and reduce traffic congestion along the main Abuja–Keffi–Lafia road.
