BOKO HARAM DISTRIBUTES RAMADAN PACKAGES, CASH TO BORNO AND YOBE RESIDENTS
Militants from the Islamic State-backed faction of Boko Haram, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), formerly known as Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād has distributed Ramadan welfare packages to some residents of Borno and Yobe States.
Brave Views gathered that the package distributed by the insurgents included rice, beans, millet, maize, sugar, spageheti and cash gifts.
A security source said the gesture was to induce the villagers to join the group’s ranks as militants.
Our source said: “Imagine, they (insurgents) claimed that the gesture was aimed at assisting villagers to perform Ramadan fast and Sallah with ease and happiness, the same villagers they killed their friends and family members”.
