The Yobe State Police Command has observed the movement of a large number of migrants from Gubio, Magumeri, Kaga and Kunduga Local Government Areas of Borno State into Yobe State.
In a statement the PRO ASP Fungus announced that the migrants relocated from their ancestral homes due to incessant attacks by unknown gun men terrorizing their communities while in search of food items and other valuables.

The migrants have so far settled in areas which includes Geidam, Tarmuwa, and Gujba LGAs of Yobe State as well as Isori, Kuka Reta, Kasesa and Kalallawa Villages around the state capital, Damaturu.
