Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State has reassured the fleeing residents of Ali Dawari Village of their safety after an attack by Boko Haram in the village recently

He said: “You should not flee; we will do everything possible to protect your lives and property, I came with the garrison commander, deputy commissioner of police and commanders of Civilian JTF. I assured you they are going deploy more personnel to the village and right now your village will be surrounded with ditch.”

Governor Shettima further ordered for the immediate release of the sum of N200,000 to the members of the vigilante group in the area, adding that the 20 members of the Civilian JTF in the village will be paid N10,000 each monthly to patrol the village.

Early in his remarks, the village head of Ali Dawari, Bulama Mallam Ali told the governor that 16 males including old age, youths and children and 11 females were killed in the village while 3 children playing at the football field were also first killed by the insurgents.

Speaking to journalists at the scene of the event, the state coordinator of the Civilian JTF, Abba Aji appealed to the federal government, cooperate organisations, and individuals to assist them with logistic to adequately fight the insurgents, as state government alone cannot carter for them with the challenges of the IDP and the scare sources at its disposal.

The Ali Dawari village and some adjoining villages at the outskirt of Maiduguri metropolis were attacked Sunday 27th December 2015 where some residents were killed and others injured.
