Troops moved into cities in the Northeast yesterday
to enforce President Goodluck Jonathan's
emergency rule declaration.
Residents were frightened by the sight of many
army trucks carrying soldiers into Yola and
Maiduguri. Borno, Adamawa and Yobe are now
under emergency rule, following attacks by
militants of the Boko Haram group.
The main thrust of the patrol is to track down
criminal elements within the vicinity of border
communities prone to terrorist activities.
