PODCAST: Marriage And Infidelity: Who Cheats More?This had reportedly cut off communication between bandits and their informants.But as a means of circumventing the security measure, bandits have now resorted to using the telecom service of the neighbouring country which shares border with Nigeria through Sokoto headtopics.com
.Gobir said he received a threat from one of the bandits who using Nigerien network service.“The bandit was threatening to lead his gang to attack me and my community,” he told Daily Trust.Gobir also confirmed the attack on a military base in Sabo Birni Local Government area of the state.
Daily Trust had reported how bandits raided the military base, killing security personnel and setting patrol vans on fire.“It is true that they attacked a military base at Dama and killed about 12 of them while many are still missing.”“This is why I faulted the government for shutting GSM network in the eastern part of the state without a serious military operation taking place there.
“The bandits are now using Nigerien network to communicate within themselves and perpetrate their heinous activities in the area.“I expect our Governor to provide Divisional Police Officers and the military deployed to Sokoto East with Thuraya phone which could enable them to communicate within themselves and with their superior officers if they need help since there is no GSM network.
“This is what the Governor of Zamfara did and it’s paying off positively,” he saidThe spokesman of the 8 Division of the Nigerian Army, Major Yahaya Ngulde, could not be reached for comment as at the time of filing this report.But the Police Public Relation Officer, ASP Sanusi Abubakar, said he was not aware of the attack on the military base. headtopics.com

Pantami and NCC should also block the communications services of Niger Republic. I wonder how we ended up with these jesters in government. Awon werey JibrinIbrahim17 Shows you the calibre of thinking on each side of this conflict! Smh.. Okay.. DoctorEmto For the people that voted Buhari into power, tomorrow never dies.
Lol Good . That is what I am saying Niger Republic is not doing enough. They need to do more to compart terrorism EricSule2 Stop all this nonsense please, when the government is ready to fight these monsters they'll fight and defeat them, untill then they'll continue to implement ineffective policies. The government knows this but APC must be seen to be doing something no matter how stupid. Same with banning of Twitter, but they know VPN must come to our rescue. The only way to deal with banditry is by stoping it themselves. They are all in it together.
I pity most of the people in Nigeria. There attention is focused on BB9ja by the time they realize what’s coming. Will be too late.

That cut off was a bust from the get go for many reasons, the principal reason is that it stops nothing, certainly not these werey bandits/terrorists Bandits one step ahead!!! They will soon start using the Kano maradi rail line.
