Shekau plans to launch an aggressive indoctrination and recruitment drive in the coming weeks which is expected to target young and adult males.
“The back up plan is to kidnap unwilling targets.” Vanguard quoted Spokesman of MNJTF, Col Timothy Antigha, as saying.
“Consequently, the Task Force urges youths in the North-Eastern states of Nigeria, Lake Province of Chad, Diffa Region of Niger and Extreme North Region of Cameroon, to be vigilant and shun all promises of opportunities for quick money and misguided teachings about jihad.
“The Multinational Joint Task Force also wishes to draw the attention of the public in the affected areas and environs to the sinister plan of Boko Haram / ISWAP and appeals to Imams, community leaders and parents to sensitize their congregations and family members and also watch the activities of their youths and children,” he added.
