"Boko Haram Is A Multi-billion Naira Outfit", Security Source

Sahara Reporters
29 January 2012

Several top security personnel in Nigeria have exclusively told SaharaReporters on condition of anonymity that the Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati wal-Jihad, popularly known as Boko Haram, is multi-billion naira organization.

One source said the extremist Islamist group has a substantial financial base and has invested millions of naira to penetrate Nigeria’s security agencies, obtaining vital and sensitive data. In addition, Boko Haram reportedly is embedded with many other institutions in Nigeria and beyond.

Our sources revealed that the Nigeria police are the institution most penetrated by Boko Haram. “Both President Jonathan and National Security Adviser, Gen. Azazi, have vital reports about Boko Haram’s in-roads in the police and other security outfits,” said one source. He added: “We don’t know why they are not acting.”

One of our sources disclosed that all plans and security details concerning how to cripple the terror group are always leaked to the sect – because of their heavy investment in the security agencies.

“The least they are offering informants is about five million naira,” said a source, adding that “many senior security agents have been compromised and cannot speak about how Boko Haram can be contained.”

Several of our sources indicated that Boko Haram was now, in the words of one of them, “a very big organization with cells across the country, even though its strategic hub is in the North.”
