Fayemi, who is the Governor of Ekiti State, said these terrorists have taken up vices like kidnapping in the South East.

Speaking on Channels television, Fayemi said: “Some of the insurgents that escaped from the Boko Haram territory are the ones prosecuting the banditry in the North-West.

“Some of them are involved in kidnapping in the South-West.

“ISWAP (a faction of Boko Haram) insurgents from Sudan and Niger Republic are involved in what is going on. We must take a holistic view of this.”

He also said though the war against insurgency is being supported by a multinational joint task force, the operation is not “as cohesive as it should”.

“We also believe that the entire framework of our internal security operation has to be reviewed. Some morale-boosting issues have to be brought to the fore as far as the leadership of the military is concerned,” he said.
