A faction of the Boko Haram terrorist group loyal to the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) has distributed Ramadan welfare packages to some Borno and Yobe States residents.
It is understood that the insurgents distributed food items including rice, beans, millet, maize, sugar, spaghetti as well as cash gifts to the residents.
The insurgents claim the gesture is to help the residents observe the Ramadan fast with ease.
However, a security source noted that the welfare package might be part of a grand plan by the terrorists to lure new members into their organization.
“Imagine, they (insurgents) claimed that the gesture was aimed at assisting villagers to perform Ramadan fast and Sallah with ease and happiness, the same villagers they killed their friends and family members,” the source said.
Below are more pictures of the food and cash distribution.
