Youths started forming these vigilante groups in June, 2012 in Maiduguri – the capital of Borno State and former seat of BH’s leadership – when they became fed up with BH’s incessant killings.

CJTF members patrol the streets armed with machetes, bows and arrows and sticks, identifying BH suspects, whom they turn in to the government security Joint Task Force (JTF). At times they also attack or even kill suspects themselves. Once a self-organized group, most members now receive US$113 per month from the Borno State government.

Borno state government is seriously investing in civilian JTF popularly known as yan Gora
