The commissioner in an exclusive interview with Dailypost in Damaturu on Monday said that intelligence gathered showed an influx of Shi’a members into the densely populated town.
“They are not banned in Yobe state, so we are monitoring their activities and proactively stem what could be a crisis despite the recent clash between members of the sect and operatives of the Joint Task Force (JTF),” he revealed.
He stated that the police command in conjunction with other security agencies, especially the State Security Service (SSS), the Military, Civil Defence Corps among others, was able to checkmate the Shi’ites effectively in Potiskum. “My appeal to the Shiite members is to be law abiding, we are for everybody as long as you are law abiding. We monitor them through intelligence we get their dossier and then checkmate them before anything happens,” he assured.
