Boko Haram insurgents have started fleeing to Europe and Syria as a result of food scarcity in the north-east.

Quoting intelligence sources, Daily Mail said Boko Haram suicide bombers and militants were seen heading for Europe, while others are travelling to fight for the Islamic State in Syria.

“They (Boko Haram refugees) will soon start showing up on the Mediterranean’s shores,” the newspaper quoted a source linked to Nigeria’s National Intelligence Agency as saying.

“Some of these people are trained suicide bombers and fighters, including children as young as 10. They have all been indoctrinated by Boko Haram and they could soon turn up in Europe’s capitals.”

The report quoted Yodi Alakija, a British public health expert who just returned from Borno state, as describing the food scarcity in the north-east as an “international crisis”.

“The UN requires Nigeria to declare it a humanitarian disaster to get relief. This is not a time for politics or game playing. Five children are dying an hour every single day,” he reportedly said.

“This requires urgent action. We need people to drop their political differences and come together. They can fight later when the children are ok.

“If we do not make adequate provision for these people, there could be an exodus. That’s when Europe will panic and it will happen when people have nothing and take desperate measures.”
