Boko Haram: Zulum Suggests Strategies To Win The War Against Insurgency


By Nkoli Opara (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, has suggested strategies that would help the federal government win its ongoing war against insurgency in the country’s north-east.

Zulum gave the suggestions on Monday when he received members of a presidential delegation who visited Borno to commiserate with the people of the state following the killing of 43 farmers in Koshobe Village.

According to the governor, the engagement of mercenaries; recruitment of youths into the military to boost its strength; engagement of the services of neighbouring Niger Republic, Chad, and Cameroon to clear the remnants of the insurgents in the Lake Chad region and the Mandara mountains; provision of mine resistance armoured personnel carriers and other equipment for the military, police, and other security agencies involved in the war; and repatriation of internally displaced people in Cameroon and Niger Republic, and provision of palliatives for the people of Borno State, would help the government win its ongoing war against insurgent groups in the north-east.

The Nigerian government is currently engaged in a war against Boko Haram and Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) insurgents terrorising the north-eastern region of Nigeria.
