There was a report on Sunday that Borno State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps had complained on how the youths in Maiduguri were being recruited by Boko Haram to supply fuel in the Gamboru Ngala area Borno.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, the state Commandant of the NSCDC, Mr. Ibrahim Abdullahi, said it during his interview.

His statement:


“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.”
