Nigeria’s security agencies have alerted the public, based on intelligence report, on the impending movement of terrorists in some areas of Borno State.

Speaking at a briefing with journalists, the National Coordinator, National Information Center, Mike Omeri, said a considerable movement of some Boko Haram recruits in Geidam, Mairi and Dupcha might be noticed.

He said the terrorists, who could be moving to their various training camps, had planned on disrupting elections in the area, having boasted about having a strong capacity of over 50,000 members.

Mr. Omeri, however, said the Nigerian military forces have fully mobilised and deployed against the insurgents who are being chased and roundly subdued.

He urged the general public to exercise a high level of vigilance and also support the effort of the military to ensure hitch-free elections and a return to normalcy in the area.

He also called on civil society organizations and politicians to avoid disruptive and inciting statements.

In addition, security emergency numbers were released by the office of the National Security Adviser for use by residents of North Eastern Nigeria.

The telephone lines, he said would enable members of the public lay complaints and report any security breach and other related issues for prompt intervention by the appropriate authorities.

The New Crisis Centre Telephone numbers are: 07057274630, 07057276432, 07057254633,07057254634, 09096223788, 09096223816 and 096303517.

    Mike Omeri, when did you become spokesman of the Security Agencies sitting in Abuja? Remember your outing last week which many doubted your sincerity because you are Political appointee of PDP. Is it the new Agenda in claiming that Boko Haram has now occupied those areas? Why did you not include Nguru, Nangere, Yussufari, Posticum and Fika? We want peace and tranquility not scaring and harassing innocent citizens. Change shall come. CHANGE! YES WE CAN.

      Mike Omeri is a senior liar. Please somebody should let him know that Geidam is not part of Borno.

    This is part of the ploy they are using to justify the election postponement. But the issue now is that different aids of this corrupt government and their party PDP are singing different tunes regarding the postponement. I have never seen a complete clueless, confused cum corrupt government. We are patiently waiting for March 28. Peace must surely return to Nigeria under our able GMB.

    Those numbers are dodgy. Call them at your own peril!!!

    May the blood of innocent Nigerians killed by this wicked government through their support to boko haram be upon their heads, and may they not escape the fierce judgment of God. Imagine someone vomiting this senseless alarm all in wicked attempt to justify the postponement of election. Let God deal with them the way they are dealing with Nigerians.
