Boko Haram Recruiting Jobless Youths In Maiduguri
The state Commandant of the NSCDC, Mr. Ibrahim Abdullahi, made the revelation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Maiduguri.
Abdullahi said the command had intercepted a reasonable quantity of fuel packaged in cartons of groundnut oil, bound for Gamboru Ngala area in the state.
He said since Boko Haram fighters were running out of food and other supplies, they were now employing all sorts of means to replenish stock.
“The command had so far arrested a suspect, who confessed that he did not know the owner of the consignment that he was asked to deliver to the insurgents trapped in Gamboru Ngala.
“He later confessed that each of the five-litre keg of fuel is sold for N15,000 to the insurgents.
“You will recall we raised the alarm that some agents of Boko Haram were transporting stolen cows from the Mafa, Kalabalge and Bomboshe areas in the state to cattle market in Maiduguri.
“The Boko Haram sect usually send the cows to their agents in the city who will then sell them and repatriate either cash or fuel to the terrorists.
“We are warning the people, especially drivers not to accept or convey any form of luggage that looks suspicious to anyone, especially along the Gamboru area.
“We are also warning drivers, park owners and union groups to always check their passengers and their luggage to avoid transporting bad elements that would cause havoc in the society.”
