The Joint Task Force (JTF) in Maiduguri, Borno State yesterday alleged that the dreaded Boko Haram sect has concluded plans to distort public order and peace on Democracy Day in the state.
The task force in a press statement by its spokesman, Lt. Col. Sagir Musa said, "members of the group intend to attack identified locations in Maiduguri metropolis and environs."
He warned members of the sect and others that are planning to breach security to have a rethink as "the JTF will deal ruthlessly with any one or group that come out trying to jeopardize the security achieved in the state so far."
Musa said: "The task force is determined to see to it that lives and property of law abiding citizens are protected and that the state returns back to the path of peace and harmony soonest."
He advised the members of the public to go about their lawful activities without panic as the JTF is up to the task of warding off any threat to peace and security.
