Leader Of Hunters Fighting Boko Haram In Borno: “Our Guns Can Only Shoot Twice”
The Mai Karwina of Borno (leader of the hunters) has urged the government to arm them with better weapons to enable them fight against the Boko Haram terrorists. According to him, their guns are outdated and can only function for two strikes maximum.
Read below what was shared on Facebook;
‘I am the Mai Karwina of Borno (leader of the hunters). I was crowned 17years ago when my father died. I was 12year old. Even at the age no one made me feel like I was unworthy of being in the position. I grew up with the other hunters still I became a man old enough to lead. Borno is our home, our land. So we know where the terrorists will go and where they might hide.
And every time we go to attack terrorists, we lose one or two of our boys because we don’t have the necessary ammunition and machinery or any support from government. Our guns are outdated.
With rainy season approaching, the gun will only function for two strikes maximum and anyone can strike you dead afterwards. It isn’t a modern version. It’s difficult working like this. We need weapons. We work day and night because it’s our community but sadly there’s no support. We are hoping and desperately seeking the attention of government to provide us with the necessities. We just want to win this war’
This Reminds me of the Popular Boko Haram Female Hunter ….
