LEAKED: How Hausa-Fulani politicians fund Boko Haram

Explosive! How Hausa-Fulani politicians
fund Boko Haram
The chicken has come to roost. At last it has
come to light that Hausa-Fulani politicians are the
funders of the Boko Haram terrorist group that
has been terrorising Nigerians. As a result of this
Nigeria security agencies are currently beaming
their searchlights on some northern politicians
found to have paid money to suspected terrorists
in the North East. According to a top security
source the politicians admitted paying into Boko
Haram coffers in the guise of paying for the
protection of of their family members, businesses
and other interests against attacks from the

“At a recent chat, three political office holders in
the troubled zone were confronted with evidence
of their paying money to certain persons and
they admitted it, but claimed it was for the
protection of their interests. And these are the
same people who would go out to accuse the
security forces of all sorts of allegations,” the
source said. The source, however, declined to
disclose what step would be taken against such
people after the conclusion of investigations.
Nigerian Tribune reported that a recent press
conference addressed in Abuja by leaders of the
North West geopolitical region, led by a former
Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Al-amin Dagash, is
being viewed with serious concern by both the
presidency and the security forces. Dagash, with
former Finance Minister, Adamu Chiroma and
former Secretary to the Government of the
Federation (SGF), Alhaji Babagana Kingibe, among
others, a few days ago, called for an end to
emergency rule in the North East and withdrawal
of troops from Borno, Yobe and Adamawa
states. They insinuated official complicity in the
uneding mass killings in those states.
However, a top source in the military
hinted Saturday Tribune that the
government viewed with “serious security
concerns, the statement credited to the
prominent people who should know better
than what they said.”
The source hinted at a possible cessation
of military operations in those states
saying “those people should stop their
unpatriotic activities and appreciate the
sacrifice being made by our officers and
“The system is under serious pressure to
withdraw the troops. It is considering the
demands of the political elite of the areas
who recently claimed that they are
representing their people and that the
troops be withdrawn.
“If the government would concede to such
demands and there is any untoward
consequence, the people should know those to
be held responsible.
“They said they represented the people. But who
are the representatives of the people now? Is it
elected political leaders or these people who are
making false claims and throwing influence
about? Whatever it is, the government is not
taking it lightly with their position on the military
operations going on there. Government has a
duty to protect the people but if these pressures
continue, there may be some drastic measures
on these operations,” the source warned.
