Sajoh said the meeting also underscored the need for people to be more vigilant during this festive period and in places like markets, motor parks, churches and mosques.

“We also resolved in the meeting, based on security recommendations, to assist members of vigilance groups in the areas in view of their contribution to security agencies.

“We also want to appeal to the media on sensational reporting and the need to verify their facts before reporting.

“The media need to know that the terrorists are banking on such sensational reports.”

The commissioner said victims of the attack were responding to treatment in Michika General Hospital and already, the governor had directed all health personnel in neigbouring Hong and Mubi Local Governments to move to the affected area.

“The state emergency management agency has also been directed to give urgent support to victims and relations of victims.”
