GOV ZULUM DEPLOYS 1000 HUNTERS TO PROTECT FARMERS FROM BOKO HARAM IN BORNO
Borno state governor, Babagana Umara Zulum has deployed 1,000 hunters to protect farmers from Boko Haram.
The hunters will protect farmers who cultivate crops in the outskirts of Jere, Maiduguri metropolis, Konduga and Mafa LGAs of the state.
The 1,000 hunters were inducted weeks after they completed security vetting by the Department of State Services (DSS) and the military.
“Our local hunters have become part of our success story because of their active involvement in trying to address the security challenges we have been facing in the state,” the governor said.
“This largely prompted us to engage in the recruitment of more hunters to assist our gallant military in their undeniable and commendable efforts to end the insurgency.”
In a welcome address, Satomi Ahmed, member representing Jere at the house of representatives, praised Zulum for his determination to secure the lives and property of Borno people.
Since 2019, Zulum engaged the services of thousands of hunters drawn from different parts of northern Nigeria, to join volunteers in the civilian JTF and vigilantes.
