DSS insists that ASUU end its strike.

At the third quarterly conference of the State Directors of Security in the North-East Zone in Damaturu, Mr Yunusa Abdulkadir, the Director of the Service responsible for Yobe, made the appeal.

He pointed out that the strike has security ramifications because it prevented the country’s universities from operating.

“In as much as we know that ASUU is pursuing a genuine cause, they should take a deeper look at the peculiarities of North-East region that has stayed for over a decade in the hands of insurgents,” Yunusa said.

The director also demanded that a mental hospital be built in Yobe to treat -traumatic disorder brought on by insurgency.

Failure to do so, according to him, could result in numerous trauma victims who might then pose a security threat to the state in addition to the insurgents.


The conference’s chairman, Mr. Hassan Abdullahi, stated in his remarks that it will examine security threats, share experiences, and a course of action.

The insurgency, kidnapping, banditry, and cattle rustling were among the security challenges highlighted by Abdullahi, who also serves as the DSS Director for Bauchi State.

He praised the state government for providing the DSS and other security with constant support and cooperation.

Given the nation’s present security challenges, the conference was deemed relevant by the state’s deputy governor,

Even while insurgency efforts had seen some success, he claimed that more needed to be done to completely eliminate any remaining terrorists in the state and the surrounding area.

Gubana gave the assurance that Gov. Mai Mala Buni’s administration would consistently support the aims of all the state’s security organizations.
