3 The Director of the Service in charge of Yobe, Mr Yunusa Abdulkadir made the plea in Damaturu at the Third Quarterly Conference of the State Directors of Security in the North-East Zone.
He noted that the strike, which paralysed university education in the country, had security implications.
4 “In as much as we know that ASUU is pursuing a genuine cause, they should take a deeper look at the peculiarities of North-East region that has stayed for over a decade in the hands of insurgents,” Yunusa said.
5 The director also called for the establishment of psychiatric hospital in Yobe to check post traumatic disorder caused by insurgency.
6 He said failure to do so could lead to high victims of trauma, who could pose another security threat to the state other than that of the insurgents.
9 He commended the state government for its unwavering support and co-operation to the DSS and other security outfits.
11 He said although successes had been recorded in the fight against insurgency, more work needed to be done to ensure total decimation of remnants of the terrorists in the state and the region.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that highlights of the occasion included award presentation to the Emirs of Fika and Damaturu, Muhammad Ibn Abali and Alhaji Shehu Hashimi, for their critical roles in the war against insurgency, respectively.
