A member of the House of Representatives, Representative Adamu Kamale, says in spite of reports of success, parts of Adamawa State, North-East Nigeria, are experiencing worsening security situation.

The lawmaker at the Lower Chamber of the National Assembly, made the statement in Abuja while moving a motion of urgent national importance.

He asked the Nigerian military to provide sufficient security personnel in Adamawa State and other parts of the country, maintaining that this would help reduce the rate of insurgent attacks in the troubled region of the country.

The Nigerian Army had earlier on Wednesday, disclosed that troops of the Army 120 Task Force Battalion in Yobe State killed more than 100 fleeing terrorists at Goniri area of the state.

A statement issued by the Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Usman, stated that seven soldiers died while nine others were wounded when the terrorists attempted to invade the Military Base at Goniri.

The House of Representatives, however, commended the Federal government for setting up the Victims Support Fund for assisting victims of insurgency in the country. (Channels TV)
