The Presidency through the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Doyin Okupe, Monday morning, said there are three categories of Boko Haram operating in Nigeria.

Mr. Okupe who spoke during a televised interview on the African Independent Television listed the three categories of Boko Haram as the religious one, the criminal, and the political.

These were the same categories of Boko Haram listed by opposition leader of the Congress of Progressive Change (CPC), Nasir El-Rufai.

Mr. Okupe however disagreed with Mr. El-Rufai on who the sponsors of the political Boko Haram are, insinuating that they were being sponsored by the opposition.
