There is no Boko Haram Attacks in Bauchi, SSG

ON BOKO HARAM ATTACK IN BAUCHI STATE

I read the story in many online media this afternoon where many of them report attacks in four Local Government Areas of Bauchi State.

The base report has it that the Secretary to the State Government told the media that there was an attack on a GSM mast in Gamawa Local Government Area of the state.

In the course of his explanation, he said there seems to be an influx of people into the state following attacks on towns in neighbouring Yobe State. The affected LGAs are Darazo, Dambam, Gamawa and Zaki, all direct neighbours of Yobe.

Significantly, the SSG did not mention an attack on all the affected LGAs except the GSM mast attack in the Gamawa Local Government area. He, however, raised the concern of the State Government on the reported influx of refugees.

The fear of the presence of the dreaded group in the Darazo Local Government area is not a new development. This has been on for more than a decade now with villagers reporting very disturbing experiences from time to time.

However, Bauchi state has not in the past or now, been under any major Boko Haram attack as being reported erroneously. The challenge in the North East is, of course, a collective one and should not be treated in isolation by the media.

There was no attack on four LGAs and the report is hysteric, hasty and of course, very panicky. There is no basis to be so as it will germinate the cloud of fear beyond justification and further embolden the confidence of the outlawed group, giving it easy propaganda against the people.

The North East, the North West and the entire North, need some positive reportage at this time to give its people some measure of confidence to go about their businesses despite challenges. Reports that will pin people down their cocoons will only impoverish the people and grind down businesses and even kill our battered economy.
