The vice president of the Borno State Assembly Chamber, Abdullahi Musa Askira, lamented the worsening of the insecurity situation in the country.
Askira spoke as she recounted how suspected fighters from the provinces of the Islamic State of West Africa (ISWAP) burned down her older brother’s home in a recent attack.
Askira said the incident occurred after ISWAP terrorists carried out an attack on the community of Chan Chan Dana in the local government area of Askira Uba state on Wednesday 10 November.
He also revealed that before the terrorists arrived in his village, the troops had gone to their enclave to dislodge them.
The vice president told the Daily Trust;
“There was an attack by insurgents in my hometown yesterday, they razed the house of my late older brother who was the head of the village before he died almost a year ago.
“I built it for him; but it’s not my home … Before they came to attack my village earlier in the day, the troops had gone to their enclave and dislodged them. So, it’s a shame they still hit. However, we will continue to support our troops who are working to ensure peace in our domain ”.
