The Nigeria Army has revealed that Boko Haram has recruiters all over the country, especially in the Northeast, adding that the group’s clearing house for such recruitment is at Potiskum in Yobe State.

Potiskum, a local government in Yobe state about 234 kilometres from Maiduguri, the Boko Haram epicenter, is known in the northeast for pursuing radical Islamic ideology.

The Director Army Public Relations, Sani Kukasheka, who made the revelation on Monday, stressed that efforts are ongoing to track those involved.

Mr Kukasheka also spoke on tricks adopted by the Boko Haram terrorists for evading air raids, saying their tricks have been unraveled by the Theatre Command of Operation LAFIYA DOLE combating insurgency in the Northeast of Nigeria.

He said: “The Boko Haram terrorists group has always perfected survival tricks to continue their nefarious activities through enticement, deceit, concealment and outright propaganda.”

Mr Kukasheka, who is a Brigadier General, said these were decoded through credible intelligence which became imperative for the public to be aware of it.
