Hunters from the 27 local Government Areas in Borno have called on the Nigerian Army authorities to let them join the fight against Boko Haram.
The hunters say they can fish out members of the sect who are hiding in the dreaded Sambisa forest, because they know the terrain.
Punch reports that the Chief Hunter of Borno, Mallam Maigana Maidurma said “We are renewing out call on the military authorities to allow us join the search for Boko Haram elements in their Sambisa forest hideout.
“We are ready to pursue the terrorists because we know the terrain in and out.”
Maidurma said his men are not afraid of the landmines which the sect members reportedly buried in the forest.
He also boasted that his men have supernatural powers that will help in the war against the insurgents.
He said “We know that it is true that the Boko Haram terrorists are in the habit of burying landmines to prevent encroachment into their hideout.
“But we believe that we can work in collaboration with Local Vigilantes, called Civilian JTF, to overrun them.”
Meanwhile, Dr. Andrew Pocock, the former British High Commissioner to Nigeria, revealed in a report that the United States Of America (USA) and the United Kingdom (UK) spotted the location of the Chibok girls, but did nothing to rescue them.
