Boko Haram insurgents from neighbouring Yobe State on Monday infiltrated at least four Local Government Areas of Bauchi State, destroying some facilities.
This was disclosed in a press conference by the Secretary to the State Government, SSG, Alhaji Sabiu Baba on Monday.
The LGAs attacked according to the SSG are Zaki, Gamawa, Darazo and Dambam.
Meanwhile, as parts of activities marking their 2021 Combats Arms Training, CAT week, soldiers under the Nigerian Army Armoured Corps Bauchi had on Monday embarked on sanitation of streets and evacuation of refuse in the Bauchi state capital.
The soldiers who carried out the exercise in their numbers led by the commander of the armoured corps, Major General Muhammed Magaji, swept the maiduguri bye pass, yan doka, GRA roads, roundabouts and evacuated the heap of refuse dumped at Bayan gari area of the state capital.
Major Magaji told journalists that the sanitation exercise was included in the activities of the CAT week so that his officers could contribute their quota in keeping the state capital clean.
He added that the corps partnered with the Bauchi State Environmental Protection Agency, BASEPA, to evacuate the waste products during the sanitation exercise.
“Today we are kick-starting our Combats Arms Training week. Bauchi is the home of the armour. One of the serious problems in Bauchi is the issue of environmental sanitation. The sanitation is in line with the cvil/military cooperation. We have been giving back to the society by building roads, bridges and offering medical services,” he noted.
