No he­li­copter sup­plies weapons to Boko Haram -FG

Daily Trust - - VIEWS -


You mean the people who saw the he­li­copters are hal­lu­ci­nat­ing? Truly with the govern­ment’s track record of ly­ing - like the re­cent claims of free­ing the cap­tured school girls, be­liev­ing Obanikoro is a risk I am not will­ing to take.

Usquar *********************** The min­is­ter is not in tan­dem with the se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tion in the North. Let him visit Borno, Yobe, parts of Adamawa and Bauchi and see the trauma vul­ner­a­ble people are pass­ing through. Most im­por­tantly, telling the world that the ter­ror­ists sneak in from Cameroon to am­bush people is plau­si­ble. Is Sam­bisa For­est in Cameroon? Is it in Chad or in the moon? So the Nige­rian Army does not have the ca­pac­ity to pen­e­trate the for­est and con­tain the in­sur­gents? Or in a lay man’s lan­guage, have the pow­ers that be re­fused to de­ploy the req­ui­site equip­ment to fight the in­sur­gents who are in Sam­bisa and not in Cameroon? Lo­cals see how the ter­ror­ists come out ev­ery day, un­leash mayhem and go back. For over ten days, over 200 girls have been snatched into the forests and not a sin­gle one was res­cued by se­cu­rity op­er­a­tives...where else in this world can this im­punity thrive? And some­one is say­ing Nigeria has the ca­pac­ity to con­tain ter­ror­ism. I am afraid one day, one of the banana republics sur­round­ing Nigeria would an­nex a large part of the gi(ant) of Africa with­out any re­sis­tance. Shame on people who talk in the me­dia with­out re­straint, just be­cause they are in po­si­tion of author­ity.


fi­fina232@ya­ *********************** We heard some of the vic­tims that es­caped from the so-called Boko Haram say­ing he­li­copters are be­ing used by them. The lo­cal people too are wit­nesses to what is hap­pen­ing. We can­not just dis­miss it be­cause the ser­vice chiefs say it is not pos­si­ble. We thought it is not pos­si­ble for the in­sur­gents to pass through Army check­point with their ve­hi­cles but we now know it is pos­si­ble be­cause in Nigeria, all the im­pos­si­bil­i­ties are now pos­si­ble.


abusulem@ya­ *********************** Sorry sir, but Afghanistan is not a state in Amer­ica. How many ter­ror­ists’ bomb­ings, kid­nap of school girls, burn­ing of schools and govern­ment build­ings take place in the USA?
