Borno State Governor, Prof. Babagana Umara Zulum has directed the release of five vehicles and a business grant as a stimulus to fish dealers and marketers in Monguno town.

Zulum made the offer during an interactive meeting with fish dealers during his visit to enhance the trading of dried fish previously suspended as a result of the activities of Boko Haram insurgents.

The governor who was in Monguno to supervise the distribution of N275 million cash donations alongside bags of food items and textiles to over 90,000 Internally Displaced Peoples (IDPs) and vulnerable members from Thursday to Saturday.

Before the insurgency, which disrupted business activities in most communities in Borno, dry fish was a commercial commodity supplied to other parts of Nigeria and neighbouring countries.

The governor also warned fish traders against any business deals that can support funding to Boko Haram/ISWAP.

“I warn you not to be involved with any illicit transaction that can jeopardise the security of our people. Anyone caught associating with criminal elements should blame himself,” Zulum said.

He urged the traders to cooperate with the security agencies by providing information about suspicious activities relating to insurgents.
