Following the success achieved in defeated Boko Haram by the military, Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima has instructed the Military to kill anyone that has any link with the dreaded group including his children.
The Governor made this declaration in a state broadcast on Friday.
He reiterated that he had told security agencies not to spare even his children if they were found to have links to the insurgents.
In his words,“I know that majority of you, the good people of Borno state; have remained sincerely committed to fighting this insurgency.
“I have met parents who exposed their insurgent biological children and handed them over to security forces to face justice.
“I know that insurgents and their allies often hide their identity so well that good citizens may innocently associate with them.
“But the bold patriotism of parents who turn in their children has always strengthened our resolve. This is why I strongly say to security agencies, that anyone factually suspected of despicable links with the boko haram and other criminals should face justice even if that person happens to be one of my three biological children.”
The Governor described any form of support for boko haram as a crime against humanity, saying he had seen young men risk their lives to fight the insurgents.
“Support for insurgents is a crime against humanity. I have met parents who encouraged their children to join the Civilian JTF and risk their lives to fight insurgents,” he said.
