Ansaru terrorists’ group, a splinter of the dreaded Boko Haram terrorists, has commenced recruitment across communities in Birnin-Gwari Local government Area of Kaduna State.

It was gathered on Friday that members of the Ansaru group, in their bid to lure residents, mostly young people into their deadly group, decided to provide Sallah gifts to residents of communities in Birnin Gwari.

The group, believed to have been operating for years, along Birnin-Gwari axis, is responsible for many deadly attacks in Kaduna and its environs.

A resident of one of the communities in Birnin-Gwari, Alhaji Usman Dankabo said that members of the Ansaru group visited the following villages: Damari, Farin Ruwa, Kwasa Kwasa, Kuyello, Gobirawa, Tabanni, Kutemeshi and Kazage, persuading members of the communities to join the group.

“They distributed gifts, preached to them, and assured them of safety against any attack,” the source said.

A resident of one of the villages, Abdullahi Madaki said they distributed biscuits, performed motorcycle stunts to the delight of villagers and distributed pamphlets, flash disks and other accessories on the activities of the group.

Abdullahi said the group vowed to protect them against any invasion and unjust maltreatment.
