The governor of the Boko Haram-infected Borno state has reportedly revealed that the terrorist group is responsible for making tens of thousands of widows and orphans in the state as it continues its reign of terror.

Borno Gov. Babagana Umara Zulum served last week as a guest lecturer at the National Defence College in Abuja. He spoke about his new white paper “Strategic leadership: The challenges of Insurgency in Borno State.”

Zulum

Zulum, a college professor who was elected last year as Borno’s governor, did not mince words as he criticized ineffective government leadership for its inadequate response to the insurgency that continues to wreak havoc in his state.

Zulum provided a glimpse into how Boko Haram’s violence has impacted over 100,000 people.

The governor said Boko Haram is responsible for the creation of 59,311 orphans and 59,123 widows throughout its existence.

The lecture was attended by senior military officers and policymakers from inside and outside Nigeria.
