Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, has urged the federal government to recruit foreign mercenaries to aid in the war against Boko Haram Insurgents in the country.

The Governor made the recommendations on Monday, November 30, when he received a federal government delegation that visited the state to commiserate with the people of Borno over the Saturday killing of 43 farmers by suspected members of Boko Haram.

“One of our recommendations as possible solutions to end the insurgency is the immediate recruitment of our youths into military and paramilitary services to complement the efforts of the Nigerian forces.

Our second recommendation is to engage the services of our immediate neighbours, especially the government of Chad, Cameroon and Niger Republic, in clearing the remnants of Boko Haram hiding in the shores of the Lake Chad.

Our third recommendation is for him to engage the services of the mercenaries to clear the entire Sambisa forest.

Our fourth recommendation is for him to provide the police and the military, with armed resistant armoured personnel carriers and other related equipment.

We are also soliciting the support of the federal government to support the Borno state repatriation of out displaced persons currently residing in Cameroon and Niger Republic,
” he said.
