DSS requests that ASUU end its strike.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities was urged to end its current strike by the Department of State Services on Thursday.

At the third quarterly conference of the State Directors of Security in the North-East Zone in Damaturu, the Director of the Service responsible for Yobe, Mr. Yunusa Abdulkadir, made the appeal.

He pointed out that the strike has security ramifications because it prevented the country's universities from operating.

"While we are aware that ASUU is working for a just cause, they ought to look more closely at the idiosyncrasies of the North-East region, which has been under insurgent control for more than ten years," Yunusa remarked.

The director demanded that a mental hospital be built in Yobe to treat post-traumatic disorder brought on the insurgency.

Failure to do so, according to him, could result in numerous trauma victims who might then pose a security threat to the state in addition to the insurgents.

The conference's chairman, Mr. Hassan Abdullahi, stated in his remarks that it will examine security threats, share experiences, and discuss a course of action.

The insurgency, kidnapping, banditry, and cattle rustling were among the security challenges highlighted by Abdullahi, who also serves as the DSS Director for Bauchi State.

He praised the state government for providing the DSS and other security agencies with constant support and cooperation.

Given the nation's present security challenges, the conference was deemed relevant by the state's deputy governor, Alhaji Idi Gubana.

Even while insurgency efforts had seen some success, he claimed that more needed to be done to completely eliminate any remaining terrorists in the state and the surrounding area.

Gubana gave the assurance that Gov. Mai Mala Buni's administration would consistently support the aims of all the state's security organizations.

Highlights of the event, according to the News Agency of Nigeria, included giving awards to Muhammad Ibn Abali and Alhaji Shehu Hashimi, the emirs of Fika and Damaturu, for their respective crucial contributions in the struggle against insurgency.
