‘Watch out for flee­ing Boko Haram mil­i­tants’

Daily Trust - - FRONT PAGE - From Johnkennedy Uzoma, Ow­erri

Fol­low­ing the rout­ing of Boko Haram mil­i­tants by the mil­i­tary in the North­east, Nige­ri­ans have been ad­vised to be at alert on pos­si­ble in­fil­tra­tion of other parts of the coun­try by flee­ing mem­bers of the sect.

The Deputy Com­man­dant, Nige­rian Se­cu­rity and Civil De­fence Corps ( NSCDC) in Imo State, Mr. Atunde Ade Michael, gave the ad­vice at a work­shop on ‘‘Pro­mot­ing Na­tional Unity and Se­cu­rity Aware­ness at In­de­pen­dence’’ or­ga­nized by the Na­tional Ori­en­ta­tion Agency in Ow­erri yesterday.

He said their dis­lodge­ment was forc­ing some of them to other parts of the coun­try and warned Nige­ri­ans against keep­ing late nights, not­ing that the high­est per­cent­age of crimes are com­mit­ted at night.

He ad­vised par­tic­i­pants to en­sure that they know the iden­ti­ties of their neigh­bours.

Ear­lier in his ad­dress, the Di­rec­tor, Na­tional Ori­en­ta­tion Agency in Imo State, Mr. Vi­tus Ekeocha, urged agen­cies to take mea­sures to pro­tect the en­vi­ron­ment and cit­i­zens.
