Boko Haram attacking Abuja villages – Senator


Senator Matthew Urhoghide has told of alleged invasion of some villages in Abuja by Boko Haram.

The revelation came barely 24 hours after Niger Governor, Sani Bello, revealed that Boko Haram terrorists had taken over about 50 communities in the state.

 Speaking during a plenary session on the spate of insecurity, Urhoghide, representing Edo State raised the alarm that  some villages and communities in Federal Capital Territory (FCT) were already under the siege of terrorists.

“If nothing is done in the next few days, Abuja will be the target. Already, villages within Abuja are under siege. We need to do something. Why can’t we invite powerful countries to help us? These bandits don’t know the Villa; we are the target, lawmakers. Let’s invite the United States of America, United Kingdom and other countries to help us,” he said.
