Ahmadu Jaha, a House of Representatives member representing Damboa/Gwoza/Chibok federal constituency, revealed that Boko Haram is presently occupying eight out of the 10 local government areas in northern Borno during the plenary session on Tuesday September 24. 

The All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmaker made the disclosure as he stated that the war against Boko Haram has not been transparent. He backed the motion of need for a special funding for security agencies and also decried the rising insurgency in the north-east region of Nigeria

“(A) number of geographical locations in Borno state and other insurgency-related areas are under the occupation of Boko Haram,” Ahmadu said.

“Let us take for instance, in a local government that has 13 electoral wards like my own Gwoza, only three or four are not under the occupation of Boko Haram.

“In Chibok, I have 10 electoral wards, only two are not under the occupation of Boko Haram. In Damboa, I have 10 electoral wards, only one is not under the occupation of Boko Haram. This is as far as Chibok/Damboa/Gwoza federal constituency is concerned.

“The same thing… the chief whip to the house can bear me witness, out of the 10 local governments in northern Borno, only two local governments and it is only their headquarters, are still not under the occupation of Boko Haram.”

This is coming amid claims by the Presidency and military authorities that Boko Haram has been degraded and presently occupies no territory in the north-east.
