Yobe Police Command on Saturday advised people of the state to be extra-vigilant and volunteer information on suspicious movements in their communities.

In a statement through its spokesman, Dungus Abdulkarim, the command said the call became necessary following renewed attacks by Boko Haram insurgents on some parts of the state, the latest being in Dapchi last Wednesday.

It said Information should not only be provided but in good time to enable security agents to take pre-emptive measures.

The command said Mr Yahaya Abubakar, the State Commissioner of Police had visited Dapchi on Friday to identify with his men for their gallantry and symphathised with them over the death of seven others in the attack.

The commissioner commended the policemen for their gallantry in defending Dapchi community, assuring that additional logistic support would be provided.

It described the attack as “sad and unfortunate,” adding that the insurgents launched attack on the Police Divisional Headquarters in Dapchi.

“In the course of the gun fight, the insurgents suffered casualties losing 11 members but unfortunately, the police also recorded some casualties,” it said.

The command assured the people of their safety, urging them to also contribute their quota in curbing the threat by being vigilant.
