The Borno State governor, Babagana Zulum, has constituted a committee on the processing and sale of fish in the Lake Chad Basin following a clearance from the Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen. Tukur Buratai.

About five years ago, the military banned fishing, processing and sale of fish based on the intelligence reports that Boko Haram members had taken over the fish value chain as part of terrorism financing strategies in Lake Chad region and Sambisa forest.
