An astonishing revelation obtained by Radio France International, says, ‘most members of the Boko Haram insurgents are Christians.’
Information gathered during a meeting of Nigerian researchers in Paris, where a round table entitled; “Within and around Boko Haram in Nigeria” was held, shows that most people terrorizing the continent are from the Christian community.
The article which was written by a certain Daniel Finnan claimed that, their decision to join the violent group was due to unemployment and the money involved.
According to the report, “The real problem of Boko Haram is that no one has actually infiltrated them or if they have, they haven’t come out, or they’ve joined them. So the level of knowledge about the insides of Boko Haram is remarkedly small.”
Speaking on the number of Christians forced to join the ferocious sect, the report claimed, “It’s almost certainly bound to be about 5,000, but some people put the numbers up way higher. The other problem is that of course as far as we know it’s quite a good job, at one point you could be paid 400 dollars a month for just simply joining them, you wouldn’t have to go fighting, you would spend your first months doing logistics or training. It’s quite profitable joining Boko Haram because you not only loot places, but you share the loot out at the end. And the third point that I think is important to realise is that there are plenty of Christians who are part of Boko Haram because it’s a job”.
