Taraba State Governor Darius Ishaku has blamed the Federal Government for some of the crises in the Country saying it has been inactive.

Ishaku stated this in Jalingo when the Minister of Interior, Gen. Abdulaham Danbazau (rtd) and the Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) in charge of operations, Joshak Habila, visited him at Government House.

The Governor said he had complained to the Federal Government over the regrouping of Boko Haram terrorists in Suntai Daaji forest in Bali Local Government Area of the State over a year ago, but nothing was done on the matter.

“Government cannot celebrate its victory over Boko Haram until the terrorists regrouping in Taraba are rooted out.
“The Federal Government must act fast to avoid a devastating crisis.
“Some of the crises being blamed on Herdsmen in actual sense are not carried out by Herdsmen but by terrorists masquerading as Herdsmen.
“The Federal Government must be proactive in handling security issues,” he said.

Ishaku thanked the Federal Government for the attention given to the crisis on the Mambilla Plateau.

He however, faulted the Federal Government for not giving same attention to crises in other Local Government Areas of the State.
