The Nasarawa Governor, Abdulahi Sule has raised an alarm stating that members of the Boko Haram sect, are regrouping in his state while carrying out acts of violence.
Governor Sule said this when he spoke with the statehouse correspondents after a closed-door meeting with President Buhari at the statehouse in Abuja today, January 22.
According to the Sule, members of the sect who were dislodged from a location along the Abuja/Nasarawa borders last year had regrouped along the Nasarawa/Benue borders, wrecking all kinds of havoc.
