Borno border communities attract FG’s attention on border patrol

The Acting General Officer Commanding (GOC) 7 Division Brig.- Gen. Abdulmalik Bulama Biu leads other officers, during his operational visit to assess the combat readiness of troops of 82 Task Force Battalion in Ngwoshe, Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno State.

Rural communities bordering Cameroon, Chad and Niger Republics in Borno state, are henceforth to be properly controlled by Immigration officials to facilitate the achievement of permanent peace in the state and the country.

President Muhammadu Buhari has empowered the Nigerian Immigration Service and other security agencies to work as a team to ensure the proper patrol of the border communities.


Comptroller General of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), Alhaji Mohammed Babandede, said all these at a dinner marking the 3-day Comptroller-General’s Annual Conference in Maiduguri.

He acknowledged the return of sufficient peace across the state in contrast with the impression created by the people outside the state that the Boko Haram insurgency was still wrecking the entire state.

“We took the advantage of ths 3-day event to pay private visits to some places and we observed the sufficient restoration of peace,” Babandede.

Expressing gratitude to Governor Kashim Shettima and the people of Borno state for their resilience, he assured the officers and men of the (NIS) state command that he would do his best to ensure the desired border patrol.
