BBOG Claims Boko Haram Has 50,000 Members
The Bring Back Our Girls, BBOG, campaign group has claimed that the Boko Haram has up to 50,000 members in its camp some of whom are desperate to die.
The BBOG group which disclosed this in Abuja, yesterday, claimed it was quoting Mr. Ahmad Salkida, a Nigerian journalist said to be close to Boko Haram.
The BBOG said ‘‘According to Ahmad Salkida, Boko Haram has up to 50,000 people in their camps, most of them are sad and willing to die–as suicide bombers. If we’re not mindful our selfishness in not standing up now will consume us all. For these reasons and others, our advocacy must continue; we must continue telling the truth and demanding for it to be told,’’
The group urged good-spirited members of the public to join the advocacy which it said must continue until the abducted girls were returned unharmed.
“We must continue telling the truth and demanding for it to be told,’’ the group added.
It called on the federal government to double its effort in tackling terrorism before it gets out of hands and plunge the country into unprecedented famine.
