Ramadan: Boko Haram distributes food items, cash to Borno, Yobe residents
The Islamic State-backed Boko Haram group, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), has distributed Ramadan relief packages to residents of Borno and Yobe states.
Rice, beans, millet, corn, sugar, spaghetti, and cash gifts were among the items distributed by the insurgents, according to SaharaReporters.
A security source told SaharaReporters that the gesture was to induce the villagers to join the group’s ranks as militants.
“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,” the source said.
