Buni warns against breach of peace in Yobe


By Bala Dauda, Damaturu

Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe has warned citizens in the state against breach of peace.

Buni gave the warning in a statement by his Director-General Press and Media Affairs, Alhaji Mamman Mohammed in Damaturu.

Our correspondent reports that the warning is in reaction to a recent friction between tricycle operators and officials of the Yobe State Road Traffic Management Agency ( YOROTA).

According to Buni, government will not compromise safety and security of its citizens.

“Government shall stand firm against anything and anyone that disrupts the relative peace and harmony enjoyed across the state.

“We have had very bitter experience of breach of peace for quite a long time in the state. We can not afford to have any more.

“We are recovering from a protracted security challenge. We must avoid any issue capable of threatening our hard earned peace, ” the governor said.

He charged members of organisations and associations in the state to always channel their grievances through constituted authorities and must avoid taking laws into their hands.

Buni also admonished parents and guardians to caution their wards against disrupting public peace, saying government would deal decisively with anyone found wanting.

The governor directed the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Alhaji Baba Mallam Wali, heads of security agencies, YOROTA and the leadership of Tricycle operators to draw clear and unambiguous measures that guarantee security of citizens and improve operations of commercial tricylists across the state.

“The measures should resolve all areas of differences between Keke Napep operators, YOROTA, and security agencies to improve safety, and harmony among road users and the regulators,” he said.
