Borno Gov Donates Sambisa Forest For RUGA by ovadozes(m): 7:52am On Aug 14
Borno State Governor, Professor Babagana Umara, has donated some parts of the enclave of the Boko Haram, Sambisa forest, for the controversial Rural Grazing Area (RUGA) programme.

The governor also mobilised the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC), Agro Rangers and hunters to secure the large expanse of the forest and make it safe for the scheme.

The allocated area (forest) covers six council areas of Konduga, Bama, Gwoza, Chibok, Damboa and Askira/Uba.

The governor made the decision public last Monday when he hosted the Shehu of Borno, Alhaji Garbai El-Kanemi, who paid him Sallah homage.


He said the deployment of agro rangers, vigilantes and hunters are to protect farmers and herders in their respective communities.

Umara told the monarch that the state government would also deploy an Emergency Rapid Response Team (ERRT), comprising of security personnel, to protect commuters and rural dwellers against Boko Haram insurgents and bandits.

According to the governor, “This administration is determined to strengthen the security architecture to encourage farming and herding activities across the state.


“We’re also distributing 80 patrol vehicles to the response team so that farmers, herders and commuters could move as well as travel within a radius of 30-40 kilometres of Maiduguri metropolis.”

Umaru said the security response team, comprises 500 troops and hunters that know the terrain of the forest.

On RUGA implementation, he said: “About 75 trained agro rangers and 300 hunters will also be mobilised next week to enable farmers cultivate their farmlands that were prevented by terrorists’ activities.


“The state government is determined to address the root causes of insurgency through improved security; fight against drug abuse and enhance food security with increased job creation among unemployed youths.”

He revealed that the state government had also embarked on vegetation and bush clearance of 187-kilometre Maiduguri-Damboa-Biu road, noting that the exercise would ensure safety of travelers and motorists to ease movements of goods and services in the state.

The governor also directed the immediate demolition of illegal structures in the metropolis, adding that the structures are suspected to be used by prostitutes and illicit drug dealers, and must be checked to sanitise the state capital.


In his response, the monarch, who commended the governor, called for an effective security measures along with the demolition of illegal hotels in Maiduguri.

Why donate some parts of Sambisa forest? The governor should donate all. Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen should be given enough battle field to kill themselves. They should make sure they kill themselves, none must survive that doom. Combination of terrorists.

This is the best comment i have heard since all this Ruga talk started, if the govt is really determined to end conflict and insecurity, let them chase boko haram out of sambisa and give the land to the fulanis and their cows, i swear no nigerian with brain will oppose this, but as usual it cannot happen at least not now, a govt that cannot protect itself, a police that brutalises it citizens at will without consequence, soldiers that collabo with terrorist and kidnappers, little wonder the police are being kidnapped and the soldiers are shooting police, i swear our armed forces are laughing stocks, i dont feel remorse when any of them bites the dust, let them continue forming james bond on legit and hardworking youths, the bush meat is one step away from eliminating the hunter.

Here we have it...So we do not need anyone bringing up the issue of RUGA in the East, West, Middle Belt.

Sambisa Forest (even 1 lil chunk of it) can conveniently house all the cows in the country
