In the wake of another attack in Borno State by insurgent group, Boko Haram, which claimed 26 lives, International Association for the Advancement and Defence of Human Rights, a CSO, has canvassed increased funding of the military.

President of the association, Babatunde Johnson, made the appeal in Maiduguri while addressing newsmen.

He said that increased funding would boost the morale of the military to win the war against Boko Haram terrorists.

He urged the federal government to increase logistical support to the security agencies to enhance the pace of the anti-terrorism war.

He also urged the government to sustain current regional and international collaborations in the fight against the terrorists.

Johnson also said that the Boko Haram insurgency had created about 1.5 million Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) across the country.

He, however, urged the federal and state governments to increase their support to the IDPs and ensure that their dignity was protected.
