March 30, 2016 – 10000 Nigerian Hunters Volunteer To Help The Nigerian Military To Flush Boko Haram Out Of Sambisa Forest

At least 10,000 local hunters from 6 North-Eastern states have vowed to rid the society of criminals.

The local hunters, who gathered recently in Adamawa State for their annual oath-taking festival, known as Salala in the local parlance and dressed in their warfare attires, with their dane guns dangling over their shoulders, appealed to government to make use of their members in the fight against terrorism and other social vices.

The leader of the hunters in Adamawa, Muhammad Tola, who claimed the hunters had so far played significant roles in the fight against Boko Haram, said hunters were familiar with the terrain in dreaded forests, like the Sambisa Forest.

His words: “We are ready to pursue the terrorists because we know the terrain very well, we are appealing to the military authorities to allow us join the fight against Boko Haram at the Sambisa Forest,” Tola said, adding that the hunters needed the government to assist them with ammunition, transportation and logistics.

He said the government could also enlist young hunters who were willing to join the army, police, and other security agencies.

“We remain one big family devoid of religious or tribal sentiments, that is why you can see over 10,000 hunters from Taraba, Gombe, Bauchi, Borno, Yoba and Adamawa converged for this epoch-making event,” Mr. Tola said.

Female hunters also participated in the oath taking festival.

    This is wonderful. I feel this is best way to finish Boko haram. Hunters know more about boko haram’s hideouts.

    Hunters are known for their bravity and fearlessness. If they can contend with dangerous wild Animals like Lions, Tigers, Leopards, Hyaenas, Pythons, Wild pigs etc… How much less, a man?

    The FG should empower and encourage them with whatever assistance they need to carry out thi National assignment effectively.

    This is not the first time Hunters would be coming out to render their unalloyed support to fight the boko harams boys.
    The first was in Borno State. Then it was about 5000 of then or so. But the Govt. underplayed their efforts and their aims faded into insignificance. That was in Goodluck‘s regime. This time we want to see encouragement and rehabilitation.

    make i do go join them oo cos na my colleagues them be. blood is thicker than water oo… *wink

    the are forming another boko haram with the help of federal government, and when they do , nothing will ever stop them if they want to take Nigeria down.
    secondly they are looking for WOR as they said
    thirdly it is well planned strategy from Mr President to recruit boys from north into military.
