Insecurity: Yobe Residents Hails President Buhari For Setting State Free From Bokoharam

By Chinenye Festus:-
Some group of individuals in Yobe state has commended and expressed gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari in what they called sustenance of peace in the state.
The group, Yobe Peace and Development Movement (YPDM) said residents of the state are forever grateful to President Buhari and Nigerian military over various operations launched against terrorists in the northeast region which is targeted at eliminating Boko Haram terrorists from its territory.
Speaking at the conference, YPDM’s coordinator, Dunoma Goni, recalled that Yobe was among the worst-hit states during the peak of the Boko Haram insurgency between 2014 and 2015.
“While staying at home was not an option as people could be attacked and killed at any time, travelling by road for Yobe residents became a nightmare and an experience in which people say their last prayers for fear of the unknown,” Goni said.
He said: “Major towns in Yobe like Potiskum, Gashua, Geidam and the state capital, Damaturu, have been peaceful and cannot remember the last time it went through such terrible experiences.”
“There is also need for the constant presence of the security agencies in several communities to nip any attempt at regrouping by the terrorists in the bud,” Goni added
Goni maintained that (Buhari’s) emergence as the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, birthed a remarkable turnaround in Yobe state.
