Jibrilla Bindow

Adamawa State Governor, Bindo Jibrilla has said that he was not using N200 million to mobilize prayer warriors against Boko Haram insurgents as reported in the media.

The government says it is using the money to strengthen existing community surveillance and intelligence gathering to checkmate the operations of the insurgents.

This was made known in a statement released in Abuja by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mathias Yohanna.

“One of the challenges inherited by the Government on assumption of office is the menace of Boko Haram insurgency,” the statement read in part.

“And as a serious and responsive government it deemed it fit to tackle it head on by evolving new security measures and sustaining the existing ones aimed at curbing the menace thereby enhancing security of lives and properties.

“The correct position of the matter is that government had evolved a community mobilisation process intended to enhance peace and security in the state,” the statement read.
