Gov. El-Rufai reveals how Boko Haram gets funding

The Kaduna State Governor, Nasiru El-Rufai in a recent interview disclosed how terrorist groups, including Boko Haram get money to fund their activities.

El-Rufai said the increased kidnappings in the Northern part of Nigeria was hijacked by terrorist groups to fund their operations.

The Governor made this disclosure on Sunday, in an interview with Channels Television.

He however revealed that the legislators are working hard to have state police in place to help governors fight insecurity.

Adding that the terrorists are fighting Nigeria’s sovereignty.

“Bandits fighting sovereignty of Nigeria and we must treat them as such,” El-Rufai said.

“But it is clear that they are terrorists, it is also clear that the kidnapping operations are substantially funding Boko Haram activities in the Northeast.

“Boko Haram has known the way of getting money, some of them have slipped and joined the ranks of the bandits and together, they use this to raise large amounts of money to fund Boko Haram operations. It is an entire industry, but the bulk is going towards terrorist financing,” he said.
