Adamawa Civilian JTF vows to battle Boko Haram in Mubi

A cross section of Civilian JTF fighters in the North-East

Apparently worried by the recent attacks by the Boko Haram sect on towns and villages in Adamawa State, the youth vigilante group, popularly known as Civilian Joint Task Force, JTF, vowed to ward off attacks by the insurgents.

Already four local government areas in the state including Madagali, Michika, Mubi North and Mubi South have since fallen into the hands of Boko Haram, while some towns, including Maiha, Hong, and Gombi have become targets of attack by the insurgents in recent times with many civilians killed and several thousands of people displaced.

Expressing their willingness to take the battle against terror to the hideouts of the insurgents, the Adamawa State Coordinator of the Civilian JTF, Bako Goni, said he and his colleagues were not afraid of death.

“Every soul must taste death and therefore we are not afraid,” Mr. Goni said.

He said his group is optimistic that with their sticks (Gora in Hausa) and other local arms, they will flush out the insurgents from their hideouts if the Federal Government gave them a go-ahead.

Mr. Goni said if more people in the state could join the civilian JTF, they would put an end to the insurgency which started five years ago.

Respect for the laws
Mr. Goni asked volunteers to respect the law while discharging their civic responsibilities.

He appealed to those willing to assist and participate to always follow the directives of the military and other security agencies while discharging their duties.

Maintaining that the youth vigilante group has really assisted in dislodging the insurgents from Maiduguri and its environs, the Adamawa State Coordinator of the group stressed the need for communities in the state to set up their own Civilian JTF to tackle the menace of the terrorists.

“I want to thank the few boys and girls that sacrificed their lives and the effort they are collectively and voluntarily making in order to fight Boko Haram who are bent in not only destroying our social and economic structures, but also killing innocent lives of our citizenry.

He said the youth vigilante group is nowmore motivated given the cooperation and support from retired military men, local hunters and other patriotic citizens who have expressed willingness to join the group to stop the five-year-old insurgency in the entire North East.

    People did not take Gideon Orkar serious when he wanted those from Northern Africa to be sent away in 1990.

    Those same people inconivajce with their kit and kins in Niger, Cameroun and Chad now make nonsense of the real Nigerians.

    The Various Hilux vans and APC are deployed to Boko Haram camps through those nations.

    This is the time to determine where and who is Nigeria. Never again will foreigner rule us. If the Yorubas like they can continue to serve them.

    They killed more Yorubas in the Locust days than people from the rest of the Country put together.

    Make una ask Abiola for im grave wetin remain of his wealth today? Na Fulani do am

    Tinubu shora o!

      Emanuel,I will not ask Abiola,but I will ask you whose was caught running Guns in South Africa?

    These youths I see in the photo above are not likely going to defeat Boko Haram. They need the help of many mouthy Yorubas who have been accusing Jonathan of doing nothing. The insolent Yorubas want others to be slaughtered so that they will inherit the oil. This is their chance to distinguish themselves at the battle field to save their dear Nigeria from disintegration. A patriot will not just sit on the fence and criticize the leader, he will take action and lead by example. Yoruba patriotic Nigerians my foot. I don’t care if this true comment draws millions of insults from insolent Yorubas, such is expected.
