Guzamala Local Government Still Siege By Boko Haram - Borno Speaker Faults Lai Mohammed Claims

Rt Hon Abdulkarim Lawan, the Speaker of Borno State House of Assembly, faulted claims made by Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed and the immediate past Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) Gen Gabriel Olonisakin that all the 27 Local Government areas in Borno State have been liberated and fully under the control of Nigeria Military Troops.

Hon. Lawan said that the entire Guzamala Local Government area where he reside, is still seriously under the control of Boko Haram.

He further said:
“There is no existence of civil life in Guzamala, not to even talk of Military presence in the Council Headquarters and its surrounding communities, that are not dominated by armed Boko Haram Fighters."

Hon. Lawan was speaking at the Guzamala Concerned Stakeholders’ Meeting in Maiduguri, the capital city of Borno State on their continued stay in resettlement camps and other host communities for several years.

He said, although, he has been since agitating for Nigeria military presence in Guzamala to enable his displaced people take the advantage of Governor Babagana Zulum’s move in Reconstruction and Resettlement, but to no responds, as Guzamala is still a ‘no go place’.

He said even him as a Speaker of the Borno State House of Representative who has been reelected for four consecutive times representing Guzamala, he has spent over three years without going to his own Local Government Area, Guzamala, and still wondered why the Federal Government Officials who were busy staying at their comfort zone in Abuja would fabricate lies in telling the Nigerians that all local government areas in Borno State are safe.

He Further said:

"We have a total of 774 Local Government areas in Nigeria, we in Guzamala Council want the Federal Government to tell us whether Guzalama has been cancelled out of the 774 so that we can know our position and look for a better option”. Lawan stated.He said even in the whole of the 10 Local Government Areas in the entire Northern Borno, people only exist in the nine (9) Council Headquarters, but not in wards or villages, as most people from Northern Borno including their Imams, Traditional Rulers and stakeholders resides in Maiduguri and other host communities.The Speaker however appealed to the new service chiefs"
