Why mil­i­tary can’t tackle in­sur­gents – Shu­luwa

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Hope Abah, Makurdi

Chair­man of Tiv Elders Fo­rum in Benue State, Chief Abu Shu­luwa, said yes­ter­day that the Nigeria mil­i­tary can­not ef­fec­tively tackle in­sur­gents, “be­cause they have com­pro­mised their po­si­tion”.

Speak­ing with Daily Trust in Makurdi, Shu­luwa said “the Nige­rian mil­i­tary and po­lice have out­lived their use­ful­ness such that they can do only lit­tle if at all to face the dreaded Boko Haram sect.

Af­ter the world war and the Nige­rian civil war, they have not fought any other. So, their equip­ment are ob­so­lete”.

Shu­luwa, who flayed the mil­i­tary for its in­abil­ity to trace over 200 school girls ab­ducted in Borno State more than a week af­ter the in­ci­dent, said the agony of par­ents whose chil­dren were in­volved in the in­ci­dent can only be imag­ined.
