Boko Haram group now like an industry in Nigeria - Senate president Lawan

As indicated by the recent submission of Nigeria’s Senate president, Ahmad Lawan, on security on Thursday, June 11, Boko Haram now operates in the country just as simply like an industry.

Lawan revealed that the Boko Haram terrorist group now has members from different country and religion, AIT News reports.

The Senate president lamented that regardless of innumerable goals and endeavors made by the red chamber, the agitators are as yet flourishing in their business of dispensing agony and striking fear in the psyches of Nigerians.

He said: ”Boko Haram has metamorphosed from initially a group of maybe religious zealots into now an industry. It is an industry because what they do is no more religious, they are people from difference, not faiths, from different countries they go about as Boko Haram.

“This Senate passed so many resolutions including the reports of the various ad-hoc committees we set up, senator Kabiru Gaya once headed a committee on insecurity and he toured many parts of the northwest then I also chaired another committee with a public hearing and everything with all the service chiefs were invited but it has persisted.”
