The governor of Borno State, Babagana Zulum has cried out over children in his state being recruited into Boko Haram terrorist group.
Zulum made this known while in talk with members of committee from the Nigerian House Of Representatives at his office in Maiduguri, Borno State capital.
According to him the new development is as a result of the increased rate of unemployment currently in the state.
He also revealed that there are more than 700,000 Internally Displaced Persons in Monguno and another 400,000 in Gamboru Ngala without access to their farmlands.
In His Words;
The only solution we have now is to ensure the safe return of our people to their homes in a dignified manner. If nothing is done believe me sincerely we shall face a very serious challenge even more than what we are facing now.
This is because right now the insurgents are recruiting many of our children into the sect because of the increasing unemployment rate.– Gov. Zulum
