There were reports yesterday that Adamawa State Government is planning to spend N200million to mobilize prayer warriors against Boko Haram.
Reacting to the report, the government of the state said it’s not true, that rather, the money is for ‘strengthen existing community surveillance and intelligence gathering to check mate the operations of the insurgents.’
“One of the challenges inherited by the Government on assumption of office is the menace of Boko Haram insurgency.
And as a serious and responsive government it deemed it fit to tackle it head on by evolving new security measures and sustaining the existing ones aimed at curbing the menace thereby enhancing security of lives and properties.
The correct position of the matter is that government had evolved a community mobilisation process intended to enhance peace and security in the state.” Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mathias Yohanna said
