“Boko Haram is attacking people and you’re collecting N1000 per car” – Borno Governor blasts soldiers


Governor Zulum’s convoy, according to TheCable, ran into a long queue of vehicles at one of the military checkpoints, on his way to Jakana, a community where Boko Haram insurgents struck on Saturday, January 4, 2020.

The governor, who had earlier been briefed that the security operatives were extorting people, alighted from his vehicle and walked straight to where some of the soldiers were.

“I’m going to report all of you in this unit… nobody can tolerate this. Boko Haram is attacking people and you are here collecting N1000 per car,” he said in the video, obtained by TheCable below:.


Even after one of the soldiers tried to calm the governor down, saying he would look into the case, Zulum fired back, saying: “But we saw them.”
