Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State has started the process of temporary relocating his office to Auno village to protect the community against Boko Haram attacks.
The community located in Konduga Local Government Area of the State had been subjected to multiple attack by the insurgents but the governor is now determined to change the narrative.
The governor, after his inspection on Saturday, directed an establishment of a community outreach office in the community to attract increased security as well as bolster the confidence of the locals.
He stated that the new outreach at Auno will not be only an office, but will also help the state government to have direct interactions with the residents at Auno, and nearby communities in Konduga and Kaga local government areas.
“Auno is only six kilometers away from the Borno State University, dislodging Auno would mean dislodging Maiduguri which has more than half the population of Borno.
“We have to take measures to secure Auno like we should do for all parts of the state. I am establishing a community outreach that will be used by me and I will be regular here,” Zulum said.
