The Governor described the situation in Niger as critical and terrible.
“I am confirming that there are Boko Haram elements around Kaure in Shiroro local government of Niger state.

“They have taken over the territory. They have installed their flag. I am confirming to you that Boko Haram terrorists/ bandits have taken over some of the wives in the communities and attached them to the Boko Haram chiefs,” he said.

The Governor called for urgent intervention from the Federal Government to prevent the Boko Haram terrorists from making Kaure their home and headquarters like they did to Sambisa forest.
