Borno Trains Another 1,000 ‘Civilian JTF’ For Community Policing

November 19th, 20130 Comments »

Another set of 1,000 members of the youth vigilante, (aka Civilian-JTF), who are being praised for helping soldiers to catch Boko Haram insurgents in Borno State, have been mobilised from all parts of the state for training on community policing, government officials said.

It could be recalled that the first batch of 750 who received similar training which involves martial art training and perception reorientation, had graduated last month after four weeks of drilling by both military and civilian instructors.

The state deputy governor, Zannah Mustapha who chairs the committee for the training of the youth said the purpose was to reorient them and give them a more civilised outlook at community policing.

The 1,000 youths who had since been arriving the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC)  Orientation Camp in Maiduguri which has been the training ground, were very enthusiastic about the training even as the military instructors did not spare the rod as they subject them to all forms of drilling expected in military trainingcentres.

LEADERSHIP correspondent who visited the camp along the Maiduguri-Biu road yesterday observed young men and women dressed in white vests, shorts and canvasses receiving training.

The state attorney general and commissioner for justice, Barriser Kaka Shehu Lawan, who is the vice-chairman of the committee said the youth were admitted after thorough checks.

 to ensure that they are genuine members of the civilian-JTF.

During the last training of 750 youth, about 31 of the trainees were discovered to be confirmed members of Boko Haram who disguised as Civilian-JTF to take part in the training. They arrested and handed over to the police.
