Bishop Sunday Onuoha, The Co-Chairman, Interfaith Dialogue Forum for Peace, has
warned that the Boko Haram insurgency group in the North-East may spread to Bauchi, Gombe, Adamawa and Taraba states.
He said this could lead to the displacement of thousands of people in the states.
Onuoha said at the 2nd IDFP General Assembly in Abuja on Wednesday the security challenges facing the country, including kidnapping in the South-West, armed robbery and militancy in the South-East, and South-South needed to be urgently addressed.
He said, “In Borno and Yobe states, the Boko Haram insurgency has taken a dangerous dimension, leading to increasing loss of soldiers and policemen.
The Bishop urged the faith community to pray for the success of the forthcoming elections and peace in the country.
