Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni has commended the Nigerian Army and other security organisations for repelling the attempted attack on Babbangida town, the headquarters of Tarmuwa local government council on Wednesday.
Gov. Buni in a statement issued on Thursday by his Spokesman, Mamman Mohammed said the bravery exhibited by the combatant soldiers in defeating the terrorists forced them to retreat into the bush.
“We are proud of our gallant troops who have shown great patriotism and superior fire power to deal with the terrorists.
“Your resilience, bravery and gallantry made us all proud, the government and people of Yobe state, and Nigerians in general will continue to be with you”, he assured.
Buni also lauded security agencies for the improved security in the State which has translated into increased economic activities.
He, therefore, reiterated the support of his administration and the good people of Yobe State to all security agencies in the State.
Meanwhile, Governor Buni has called on the people to be optimistic on the massive repentance of some members of Boko Haram in Borno State.
“We should all pray that the repentance is for real and is the begining of the end of insurgency in Nigeria”, he prayed.
