Taraba State Governor, Darius Ishaku has sought permanent military bases at Taraba’s border with Cameroon to prevent further Ambazonia attacks on Nigerian civilians.
Recall that NewsBreak reported In November, how the militants attacked Takum local government and killed 11 persons, including a traditional ruler in Manga village.
Ishaku, in an interview with Channels, said although the military is stationed there for now but not permanent, but has met with the president on Tuesday for a permanent solution.
He said: “The military is stationed there for now but I had to tell the President, as the Commander-in-Chief, we will need a permanent solution on the axis of our continuous boundary with Cameroon.”
“Therefore we need to station a naval base, an air force base to police the borders, and also a military base permanently.
“This is the only way we can prevent the re-occurrence of these Ambazonians, which is one too many.
“I was very happy with the meeting,” he said. “He understood the details of everything I discussed with him. And he was quite sympathetic. I think we are on the way to a permanent solution.”
