100 Local Hunters Volunteer To Support Military Combat Boko Haram

About 100 local hunters from Kaduna State have expressed readiness to join in the war against Boko Haram in Maiduguri, Borno State.

The hunters said they are ever ready to bring the activities of Boko Haram to an end by December ending.

Addressing newsmen in Kaduna, the head of the local hunters, Alh Shehu Musa Al-Jan disclosed that about 100 local hunters have declared their interest to go to Maiduguri and fight the dreaded Boko Haram.

According to him, the hunters were aware of the December deadline given to the military authorities by President Muhammad Buhari, saying that, ‘‘we are ready to go and fight the insurgents to a standstill.’’

Al-Jan remarked that the fight against the Boko Haram was a call to duty, adding that, ‘‘the military alone cannot end the psychological war. We want to go there and assist them, we are not joking.’’

‘We have contacted our members across the Northern region and we know who and who are ready. We just want an invitation from the government, and we will land in Maiduguri without delay.’

‘We are ashamed of ourselves and inspite of the fact that we have brave and courageous men in the region, we cannot fold our hands and continue to see the senseless killing of our brothers, sisters, sons, daughters and wives by this blood thirsty and heartless men[Boko Haram].”

Local Hunters Form Patrols to Counter Boko Haram

Local Nigerian hunters have formed armed patrols in the northeastern part of the country to counter militancy by the Takfiri Boko Haram group.

The commander of the traditional hunters in the city of Yola, the capital of Nigeria’s Adamawa state, said on Wednesday that the group is ready to help the Nigerian government to fight the Takfiri militants and protect the city.

“Initially there was this fear with the wave of Boko Haram overriding some towns, that’s what prompted us in contributing our quota towards bringing an end to this insurgency,” Adamu Abdullahi said.

Hunters in Adamawa had previously helped the army to retake towns from the militants. “As I’m talking to you now we are making headway. That is why we are pushing them (Boko Haram) back from where they were,” Abdullahi added.

Boko Haram militants have already seized more than two dozen towns in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states, raising fears about a potential loss of government control in the region. In mid November, the Takfiri terrorists killed about 100 people in separate attacks in the Mafa and Kukawa areas of Borno.

Boko Haram, whose name means “Western education is forbidden,” says its goal is to overthrow the Nigerian government. It has claimed responsibility for a number of deadly shooting attacks and bombings in various parts of Nigeria since the beginning of its operations in 2009, which have left more than 10,000 people dead so far.
