Reps ask Buratai to relocate barracks away from UNIMAID


The House of Representatives on Tuesday asked the Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen Tukur Buratai, to relocate the Giwa Barracks in Galtimari, Jere Local Government Area of Borno State, 10km away from the University of Maiduguri.

The request followed the unanimous adoption of a motion moved by a member, Mr Satomi Ahmed, tilted ‘Need to Relocate Giwa Barracks to the Outskirts of Galtimari in Borno State.’ Adopting the motion, the House “urged the Chief of Army Staff to, as a matter of urgency, commence the process of relocating Giwa Barracks to the outskirts of Galtimari in the area laying between Bale Kura and Yawuri village or 10km away from the University of Maiduguri.”

The lawmakers also “urge the Chief of Army Staff to, after the relocation, donate the facilities in the barracks to the Borno State Government for use as training centre for the unemployed youths and victims of Boko Haram insurgency.”
