Boko Haram is recruiting youths to supply fuel to it in Gamboru Ngala area of Borno State.
The State’s command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps raised the alarm Sunday through its commandant Ibrhaim Abdullahi.
Abdullahi said the command had intercepted a reasonable quantity of fuel packaged in a carton of groundnut oil. He said it was headed for Gamboru Ngala local government area in the state.
Insurgents desperate to survive
“A suspect 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 litres of fuel is sold at N15,000 to the insurgents.
Insurgents involved in cattle rustling
“You will recall we raised the alarm that some agents of Boko Haram were transporting stolen cows from Mafa, Kalabalge, and Bomboshe axis in the state to cattle market in Maiduguri.
“Boko Haram 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 message that looks suspicious to anyone.
“We are also warning the drivers, park owners and union groups to always check their passengers and their luggage to avoid transporting bad elements.
He also said the command was working with other relevant security agencies to bring all the collaborators of terrorists to book.
