Boko Haram Plan to Hoist their “National” Flag, Stopped by JTF

Perhaps the dreaded Boko Haram sect are, after all, ready to come out in the open – if fresh information emerging from the Joint Task Force (JTF) is anything to go by.

According to information by the Vanguard, security operatives of the Joint Task Force have thwarted an attempt by the Boko Haram Islamic sect to hoist what they said would have been their national flag – “a yellow, white and red stripes” with weapons of mass destruction inscribed, at the centre – in Damaturu, Yobe State capital which sources said is scheduled to be the headquarters of the Boko Haram nation.

The disclosure has been made even as security sources said indigenes of Borno, Bauchi, Yobe and other states harbouring the sect’s ‘cells’ are under immense pressure and fear owing to threats on them to support the group with funds by a percentage of their salaries or profits made from their businesses, which is said to be non negotiable.

Failure to remit such money is most times met with the killing of a loved member of that family or the wiping out of the entire family. That is why the sources of funding for the Islamic sect have been difficult to trace, the source said.
