Chairman, Senate Committee on Army, Senator Ali Ndume (Borno South) has raised the alarm over the resurgence of Boko Haram militancy in the northeastern states of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa.
Ndume stated this while briefing reporters on a Bill which seeks to establish a Federal College of Education Gwoza, Borno State, sponsored by him which passed second reading on the floor of the Senate.
He, however, said the resurgence of Boko Haram activities should not stop the establishment of more educational institutions in Borno South, which, he said, had existed without a higher institution of learning despite its size and population.
Ndume said: “Last week, 30 soldiers were killed in Mainok on the highway. Yesterday (Monday) just 30km from Maiduguri, the town was overrun by Boko Haram.
“It took concerted efforts of the armed forces but we lost a major and two soldiers. In Rann Local Government, the same thing happened.
