Youth report Boko Haram presence in Taraba

01 February 2016, 07:45Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Concerned Taraba Tiv Youth Frontier (CTTYF), a pressure group, is demanding the arrest of Senator Abubakar Yusuf for denying the presence of Boko Haram terrorists in the state.

The legislator represents Taraba Central at the National Assembly.

Chairman of the pressure group, Goodman Dan Dahida, made the call for Yusuf's arrest during the weekend in Jalingo.

He regretted that instead of the senator supporting his counterpart,  Emmanuel Bwacha, to ensure security of the people of the state, he chose to "play politics with the lives of the people."

Dahida explained that on a daily basis, "strange people" were massively coming to the state from far northern states.

He noted police had confirmed this influx.

“The strange people coming to Taraba in droves are dangerous, they have killed about 23 people in Bali and injured many others," said Dahida.

"They are practically taking over Taraba and security agencies must team up to flush them."

He thus said police head, Solomon Arase, should open a probe and question Yusuf.

The group commended Bwacha for raising the alarm on terror.

CTTYF meanwhile commended Governor Darius Ishaku for his commitment in ensuring a peaceful Taraba since his emergence as governor.
