Boko Haram Plan to Hoist their “National” Flag, Stopped by JTF

Perhaps the dreaded Boko Haram sect are, after all, ready to come out in the open – if fresh information emerging from the Joint Task Force (JTF) is anything to go by.

According to information by the Vanguard, security operatives of the Joint Task Force have thwarted an attempt by the Boko Haram Islamic sect to hoist what they said would have been their national flag – “a yellow, white and red stripes” with weapons of mass destruction inscribed, at the centre – in Damaturu, Yobe State capital which sources said is scheduled to be the headquarters of the Boko Haram nation.

The disclosure has been made even as security sources said indigenes of Borno, Bauchi, Yobe and other states harbouring the sect’s ‘cells’ are under immense pressure and fear owing to threats on them to support the group with funds by a percentage of their salaries or profits made from their businesses, which is said to be non negotiable.

Failure to remit such money is most times met with the killing of a loved member of that family or the wiping out of the entire family. That is why the sources of funding for the Islamic sect have been difficult to trace, the source said.


  1. They should have allowed them.every part of Nigeria needs and wants self determination.It is only the corrupt and greedy politicians,business men and religious leaders that are afraid of dividing this country due to their fear of inrelevance of it happens.

  2. Allow BOKO HARAM to hoist their flag after all no any ethnic or race is happy in a cage contraption called NIGERIA. The only people that enjoy the unity of ONE NIGERIA is a politician. GOD BLESS THE GOOD PEOPLE OF EASTERN NIGERIAN AND THE INCOMING FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF BIAFRA, AND ALL THOSE FIGHTING FOR HER INDEPENDENT. KUDOS TO YOU ALL.
