Nigerians should Worry because Boko Haram has been Chased to North West by ISWAP- EL-RUFAI

Governor Nasir El-Rufai has expressed concerns over the spread of Boko Haram to the North West.

The diminutive Governor of Kaduna State made this known during a speech he delivered at the Fountain Summit organised by the Ekiti State Government on Thursday.

The Governor noted that the terrorists are being chased to the North West by ISWAP. He however didn’t say how he came about that information.

According to El-Rufai: “Remember once upon a time, Boko Haram was only in north-east. Now, the biggest fear we have in the north-west is that they are relocating to the north-west because they are being chased out from the north-east by ISWAP.

“When they are chased out of the north-west, where do you think they will come? Somewhere else. It is something we should all be concerned about; not only federal and state collaboration, but also across the country.

“Don’t see what is happening in Kaduna and say it is not my problem. It will be your problem one day, unless it is solved.”

“We have security challenges, but our investors know where their assets are and they know that those assets are safe and we’ve never seen the headlines of security affecting our inflow of investments.

“But we must work on improving security or more than that, we must stop this ‘us versus them’ mentality and collaborate more closely,” he added.
