Why I Gave Boko Haram N1.5m –Senator Zanna
Embattled Senator Ahmed Zanna has shed more light into his dealings with the Boko Haram sect. During his interrogation by operatives of the SSS, the senator opened up on why he gave Boko Haram members N1.5M for Sallah rams.
He was said to have told his interrogators that he gave N1.5 million for Sallah rams to the sect members following their threat to launch an attack against him.
Sources said he explained that one thing led to another and Boko Haram captured one of his aides. They took the aide to his house for a search, they retrieved N250,000 and left a message with the aide for him that he should provide them with N10 million or they would come for him.
For fear of his life, he gave them N1.5m to buy Rams for Sallah celebration.
