The Emir of Mubi, in Adamawa state, Abubakar Ahmadu, has appealed to residents who fled the town as a result of Boko Haram invasion to return as the military continues to recapture more territories in the northeast.
The Emir also stated that his palace is open 24 hours and residents no longer need to book an appointment before they see him, maintaining that “I’m available 24 hours, so anybody who wants to see me, I’m for him, no need for booking. I plead with the people of Mubi to come back home so we can develop Mubi, it is now in peace, so everyone should come back”, he said.
The Emir was speaking during a meeting with military officials who were monitoring some of the recaptured territories in the state.
On his part, the Commanding Officer, Task Force Battalion, Lt. Col. Asuquo Eka, said the town had been a ghost town until it was recaptured from the insurgents and reaffirmed that the town was safe for residents to return.
