According to Zulum: “From day one, we were faced with an acute humanitarian crisis, particularly in northern and some parts of the central senatorial zones.

“There was the risk that insurgents could, after making IDPs socially and economically vulnerable, also explore that vulnerability by offering food and cash incentives to recruit fighters who could even serve as their spies in communities.

“From records, we had experienced instances when insurgents offered as low as between N5,000 and N10,000 to recruit some spies and smugglers of weapons.

“Borno State has thousands of volunteers who are being paid monthly allowances, provided with kits and vehicles to complement the military in the fight against Boko Haram.”
