Governor Babagana Zulum has met behind closed doors with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, over the recent Boko Haram onslaught on some communities in the state.

Governor Zulum who briefed State House correspondents after the meeting, attributed the continuous attacks on Borno communities by the insurgents to the porous nature of Nigeria borders.

He noted that the state borders three countries, Republic of Chad, Niger Republic and Cameron, adding that it is very difficult to man such vast area.

The Governor said the composition of the insurgents cuts across different ethnic groups, adding that even expatriates have joined in the attack.

He said his administration is having discussions with the traditional rulers, community and religious leaders with the view to identifying repentant Boko Haram members so as to reintegrate them into the society.
