For many months the Nigerian military repeatedly dismissed reports that three local governments in Bornu State are under the control of the dreaded Boko Haram insurgents.
Surprisingly, the news about the local governments being under terrorist control was first made public on Journalists Hangout by award-winning journalists Babajide Otitoju and not by the Nigerian Army.
Babajide stressed on many occasions that it is untrue that Bokoharam does not hold any territory in Nigeria because they are fully controlling 3 local governments.
He particularly mentioned Baga as one of the terrorists stronghold in Bornu state.

The governors appeal has sparked controversy over the state of insecurity in the Northeast where it was said that the insurgents have been degraded
