Boko Haram Serial Killers Are Being Paid $3,000 Daily, While The Military Is Being Paid 1,000 Naira Daily. Is This The Way Forward To End The Boko Haram Insurgence?

It has been confirmed that the Boko Haram killers are being paid $3,000 daily while the military is being paid 1,000 Naira daily. This is clearly a sign that Nigeria is not ready to solve the Boko Haram insurgency, if the military is been paid peanuts while the latter is being paid higher, it would discourage the former from performing their duties effectively.

Thus, there should be an increment in the minimum wage if we want them to perform much more effective in their assignments or duties.

What other strategic means and methods should the government take in other to encourage the military to work better? Let us hear from you.

This is the Northerners own way of collecting their part, because they saw that miltants in Niger Delta benefited from the amnesty progammes. But this is sick because they are fighting for no cause unlike the militants, the militants has reasons for carry arms, but what can the Boko Haramist say is their own reasons for this wasting of innocent lives,

To every hand that works, there should be proper payment and reward for such. 

We need to appreciate our own militants, if not, the pay is enough to discourage them for risking their lives to save the nation.

The military can also be compensate in other ways by giving them car's, house apart from barracks ,or try to create a means of fun or sport and the winning should be giving something and those that need to rank should be properly do and there should be a certain amount for the family of those solider that die in service ,the money should be pay to the family directly not through boss that will scissorsless the money.

No no no...... rather, the way forward is by: serious prayers, motivation of the security agents, transperancy among those in charge of the security issues, their level dedication, selfless service and above all the fear of God both by we the mass and our leaders.

In a situation like this, we shouldn't be sentimental. 

Our soldiers suppose to be paid higher than any other force. 

Boko Haram Being paid is just a means of squandering our naira.

It is only citizens who are unserious just like this administration still believes this administration really want to solve the issue of insurgenct in this country. People like me have long ago concluded that they are not ready and am never tricked by their actions anymore.

How on earth will the terrorist be paid and even far more than the force fighting crime in the country?

The government should stop the payment of Boko Haram and use the money in getting higly sophisticated arms and the forces well in order to flush this insurgent out of ou dear country Nigeria

Not good. For the Army to perform their works very well as soldiers, they should be paid very well. And the boko haram causing destruction in the nation shouldn't have any reason to be given money.

Increasing the salaries of soldiers won't stop the evil menance of Boko Haram. The Nigerians that voted  PMB simply said they wanted Boko Haram to continue. As long as PMB is there, the war against Boko Haram will never be won. What do expect to see when the president of a country supports the activities of Boko haram by his actions and inactions?

The Nigerian Government needs to buy more fighter jets to bomb the hideouts of these terrorist group, I don't think the issue of who is paying higher should be a problem because one destroys while the other protects, with that amount how will you enjoy the money when you are asked to be a suicide bomber?

You can't use money to discourage a thief from stealing because he/she won't see it from your perspective on why you gave him/her that money... Concerning the ways government should encourage the military, I think they should pay them different amounts of allowances because they need to be appreciated for defending Nigeria..

Can you imagine this our government system sha. How can the military be collecting such money, the one who lay their lives down for their country. While the terrorists they tackles are earning more that them. Is the act encouraging the military or discourage them. Our government should find a way to appreciate their effort.

This is very strange...the government should do what it can to fight this insurgency, even if it means increasing the military men's salary...anyway they deserve it, do they think it it easy for those soldiers to leave their family to fight for just #1,000 ...that is #365,000 yearly and #30,000 a month!

Some people earn up to #500,000 a month o... This is really appaling👎👎🙁😒

That is not the way out, rather they should embark on hostage taking among the military,  Boko Haram and the Federal Government to address the issue from the root, I believe they are humans they will finally come to understanding. It's possible to have peace in Nigeria if wisdom is employed sometimes in a seemingly stupid way.

Government has no blame on this,my opinion on this is does the masses ever think of the wellbeing of the politician? Have we ever considered our selves as brothers and sisters? The answer is no so how did we think the issue of killing will stop Christian thinks only about his fellow Christian Muslim did the same with that the government continue to enjoyed what they are enjoying while living us in blood and hunger,so to me I think before we could think about killing let's first think about ourselves are my doing a good think to bought Christian and Muslim if I belong to the other or not

The issue on ground is that the government need to buy adequate ammunition for the arm forces in order to tackle insurgency in northern part of the country. 

But to be candid those that are paying boko haram such huge amount of money,, are they not human being like us.they are,, all what is hidden from human being is clear to God 

God bless Nigeria

I rather say,the govt is actually encouraging people to join bokoharam so they can make a good lively hood, because it's babaric to hear of payment without service.how would u pay an individual money for distorting lives and properties.

Hence,I suggest the govt should stop the pay to the bokoharam and rather give that to the soldiers.

What? you call them killers yet you pay them? that's the first mistake. firstly, I critic to any scheme that pays killers. secondarily, Obviously it's not the way to solve the insurgency. You solve a problems by fighting the problem and there are many ways and arsenals to fight every problem. The number one strategy I perceive will be effective to fight insurgency is to empower the nations armed forces with both finance and weapons. thanks!

1.I think the government should please increase the salary and even they should improve the rate at which they are providing ammunition.

2.Also if it is possible for the Government to also provide them nuclear weapons like hydrogen bomb that would only affect the locality where it is being used but the soldiers should have their own protective wears.

      Thanks.

There is need for Government to overhaul the top Security Chiefs and bring in new hands to fight the boko-haram war as this will bring in new strategy to fight the terrorist group. Moreover there is need to motivate the soldiers more by increasing their renumeration very well and provide the necessary equipment to fight the boko-haram group.

Well, come to think of it tho

We say the Boko Haram people are being paid $3000 daily... Calculate it well o... Ion think it's that they pay each of them oo... The $3000 is probably for all of them to share.

Compare it to the 1k per soldier... Multiply that by the millions of soldiers we have then convert it to dollars... Then you'll know that the amount being paid to the soldiers is higher

This situation is pathetic and a cause for concern.People sacrifice their life to secure the country.Aside from salary increase their families should be given free education and health care in the country.In case of death in active service,the family should be adequately be compensated with not less than #5m.Those that retired in any rank should be on salary for life.

Paying them to not attack won't discourage but encourage there attacks and they would keep on requesting for more and keep treathening to attack. The more you pay someone who knows your weakness not to expose you the mote they'll threaten to expose you and ask for more money. The government should focus more on enquiping the military and paying them more in order to motivate them and feed the spirit of patriotism in the army and in Nigeria.
