Governor Ishaku backs Governor Zulum on use of mercenaries to fight Boko Haram

Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State has backed his Borno state counterpart, Babagana Zulum who advised the federal government to bring in mercenaries to help in the fight against Boko Haram. 

Ishaku who led the governors of Adamawa, Bauchi and Gombe on a sympathy visit to Borno on Tuesday December 1 over the killing of farmers in Zabarmari community in Jere local government area of Borno last weekend, stated that Nigeria needs external help in the fight against insurgency and should not be mourning every time. 

Ishaku said; 

“Our dear brother, we are here to condole you over the killing of farmers by Boko Haram insurgents. We are indeed saddened and traumatised. 

“I will key into your request, which you said that the federal government should invite some mercenaries to come and help us out of this problem, because what you can’t do, what you can’t solve, I think we should invite who can solve it for us.

“We cannot continuously be mourning, there has to be a time to stop the mourning. All of us in the North East Governors Forum, we are pleading with the federal government to find a solution to the issue of Boko Haram because if we neglect it, it will become even worst.”
