Monguno Vigilante Head Reveals Boko Haram Sponsors

 One of the displace resident of Monguno town in Borno State which was recently ransacked by terrorist group, Boko Haram, have disclosed that they usually see helicopters dropping arms and food items for the insurgents in the bushes where they are camped.

According to Leadership, the disclosure was made by the leader of the local vigilante group in Monguno, Mohammed Sani.

50-year old Sani said he has on various occassions seen delivery of items in big wooden boxes and sacks by air dropped around the camp of the terrorists.

“Even during the attack on Monguno, there was an aircraft that came but did not do anything, not even dropping a single bomb before it left; then another one later came around the Monguno barracks and we saw four men alighting from the aircraft, using a rope. The aircraft left, but we doubt if they were soldiers.
“Even before then, some of my colleagues and I have been sighting helicopters dropping items in
sacks and some in boxes to them at the camp of Boko Haram near Chikungudu and Kwalaram villages. Many helicopters came to drop items packed in boxes and sacks to the Boko Haram insurgents at a bush camp between Monguno and Marte; then we would see the Boko Haram gunmen rushing to the spot to pick the dropped items,” he stated.

According to Sani, the people in the strange helicopters are most likely foreigners.
“Many of them looked like Chadian Arabs – they were light-skinned with coiled hair, and there were many young men from Monguno – who Boko Haram had abducted when Nganzai was attacked last year – that were now active members of the sect.
“While Boko Haram members that are former youths of Monguno were leading other insurgents to attack Monguno town, the foreigners were the ones engaging soldiers near the barracks,” he concluded.

Sani, who said he had lived in Monguno for the past 20 years, also disclosed that they spent about 48 hours in the bush running towards Maiduguri.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian military has described the Amnesty International report that they had been aware of the impending Baga and Monguno attacks as misleading.
