Former Kaduna Central senator, Shehu Sani, has sent words of advice to hunters allegedly recruited by Borno State government to fight Boko Haram.
Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State was said to have secretly recruited 1,000 traditional hunters from different parts of the North-East and North-West to help fight Boko Haram terrorists in the state.
The hunters according to report were said to possess supernatural powers to resist gunshots and also disappear and appear the way the Japanese Ninjas supposedly do.
But in his words of advice, which he sent out through his verified Twitter handle on Tuesday, Sani called on the hunters to ensure they do a lot of rehearsals, reminding them to understand that while it could be easy to disappear, that reappearing might not be easy.
He said, “I advice those hunters with the ‘magical powers of disappearance’, recruited to combat the insurgents to do a lot of rehearsals, to disappear is easy to reappear is the problem.”
Governor Zulum is a professor of engineering. Since emerging the state governor during the last general elections, he has continued to make efforts to complement those of the Nigerian Military, to ensure an end of insurgency in North-East Nigeria.
