Gov Zulum hails UAE govt for convicting Boko Haram sponsors, messages Buhari

Borno Governor, Babagana Zulum has expressed excitement over the conviction of alleged Boko Haram sponsors in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Zulum said he was glad that for the first time in 11 years, there appeared to be a headway on tracking some financiers of the sect.

The governor lamented that Boko Haram had killed thousands of citizens, displaced millions, and damaged private and public properties worth billions of Naira.

In a statement on Tuesday by his spokesman, Isa Gusau, Zulum urged President Muhammadu Buhari to set up a multi-stakeholder committee to follow up on the UAE findings.

He noted that such intelligence if authenticated, be used to expand search on other Boko Haram sponsors within and outside Nigeria.
