  1. THE NIGERIAN ARMY HAS RELEASED A STATEMENT ON SATURDAY CLAIMING THAT ITS TROOPS HAS KILLED 7 MORE BOKO HARAM TERRORISTS DURING THE ONGOING CLEARANCE OPERATION IN SEPERATE AMBUSHES IN BORNO STATE. Onyema Nwachukwu, the Deputy Director, Army Public Relations, Operation LAFIYA DOLE, made the disclosure in a statement in Maiduguri. Mr. Nwachukwu disclosed that the troops also arrested a suspected Boko Haram insurgents’ spy, Modu Chari, and recovered arms in multiple encounters with the fleeing terrorists on April 13. He said that the troops killed two insurgents fleeing from military onslaught in SambisaForest at Kusheri-Ardodam along Magumeri in Borno, adding that the troops recovered two AK 47 rifles, three magazines and 18 rounds of 7.62 mm NATO type ammunition. Mr. Nwachukwu revealed that troops also neutralized two insurgents in an ambush along a remote track in Mafa, recovering one AK 47 rifle, two magazines, and a bicycle. In another ambush, he said, three fleeing insurgents were killed by troops at Multe-Lawanti, South of Furfur in Damboa, Borno, and recovered one AK 47 rifle, three motorcycles, two bicycles, spanners, and dresses. The army spokesman disclosed that the troops on Friday arrested a member of the Boko Haram terrorist group, Madu Chari, while transiting along Cross Kauwa in the northern region of Borno. He explained that the suspect was on an espionage mission when he was nabbed by troops, adding that investigations indicated that Chari was an active member of the Al Barnawi faction of the terrorists' group. “The ferocity of the ongoing Counter Terrorism and Counter Insurgency Operations to rid the northeast of Boko Haram hideouts and enclaves has further suffocated the terrorist group hence they resorted to suicide attacks on innocent civilians. “It is crucial, therefore, to draw the attention of the general public to the terrorists’ callous resort to the use of diverse types of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), to attack vulnerable civilians in their bid to instill fear amongst the populace in order to remain relevant. “Members of the public are advised to be vigilant and report suspicious persons, movements, and activities to security agencies”.

  2. Combined Operatives of Operation Lafiya Dole and the Department of State Service conducting Counter Terrorism Operations in north eastern Nigeria have arrested a Boko Haram terrorist who specializes in making Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) for the terrorists group. Adamu Hassan aka Baale was nabbed by the operatives at Kaltungo in Gombe State during a Stop and Search Operation along Bauchi – Gombe road. In a separate operation, troops of operation Lafiya Dole in a joint operation with Vigilantes on Monday evening busted a raid operation by elements of the Boko Haram terrorists rummaging for food and logistics at Kudiye community, along Dikwa – Gulumbagana Road. The four man raid team was intercepted by troops following a tip- off that the insurgents were on their way to loot the community. The insurgents who revealed that they belong to the Abubakar Shekau faction of the Boko Haram terrorists group have been taken into custody and are making useful confessions. Troops also recovered two motorcycles, bags of grains and tamarin from the insurgents. Meanwhile, troops conducting clearance operations yesterday killed three Boko Haram insurgents in two separate encounters in the mountainous region of Bokko Hilde, along Ngoshe – Pulka road and Mujigine general area respectively. The troops neutralized the insurgents during clearance operations to rid the areas of elements of the Boko Haram insurgents who had escaped from troops’ offensive operations in the Sambisa forest. Troops also recovered two AK 47 rifles and a motorcycle from the insurgents. It is expedient to bring to public awareness, that in its desperation to survive troops’ onslaught and remain relevant in the eyes of the public, the Boko Haram terrorists group has continued to make frantic efforts to infiltrate communities with Person-Borne Improvised Explosive Devices (Suicide bombers) to callously unleash terror and fear on the populace. Members of the public are therefore enjoined to remain vigilant and watchful while going about their normal activities and promptly report suspicious persons or activities to appropriate security agencies.
  3. Archbishop Emeritus of Lagos, Anthony Cardinal Okogie, yesterday, wrote Nigerians, speaking on the greatest problem of the masses. According to the cleric, politicians were more harmful to Nigerians than the incessant attacks by Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen. The former Archbishop said the recent call by former Defence Minister, Lt. General Theophilus Danjuma (retd), for self-defence should normally cause apprehensions in the presidency, since its legitimacy was in doubt. In his latest letter to the nation, entitled “We are waiting and watching 2,” Okogie said politicians, rather than herdsmen, kidnappers and armed robbers, were the real threat to the nation’s security. His letter came at a time Rev. Fr. Matthew Kukah, Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, said it would be the greatest miracle for Nigeria to pull through the 2019 elections successfully. Okogie said rather than worry about several informed admonitions, government’s apologists, as usual, opted to insult the messenger, insisting that the nation’s “political leaders constitute the greatest threat to security in this country, not armed robbers nor kidnappers, not Boko Haram nor herdsmen.” Okogie’s letter is a follow-up to his last, with the same title. It reads, “Whoever loves Nigeria should be concerned about the security of life and property within her borders. “It affects all of us across party, ethnic and religious lines. It affects the rich and the poor. “Unfortunately, it can, and it ought to be said that our political leaders constitute the greatest threat to security in this country, not armed robbers nor kidnappers, not Boko Haram nor herdsmen. “Nigerians are currently forced to watch a show of shame by the ruling party of today and the ruling party of yesterday. “Such are accusations and counter-accusations of looting that Nigerians find it difficult to differentiate between the accuser and the accused. “Huge sums of money belonging to the people of Nigeria obviously got into wrong hands and for wrong reasons. There are good reasons to suspect that the looting that took place cut across party lines. “Nigerians deserve to know how, for example, the two leading parties financed their campaigns in 2015. “But instead of honest answers, we are treated by the two big parties to a theatrical display of politically motivated compilation of lists of looters. “Nigerians deserve to know how, for example, the two leading parties financed their campaigns in 2015. “But instead of honest answers, we are treated by the two big parties to a theatrical display of politically motivated compilation of lists of looters. ‘’We are forced to say what Jesus said to the accusers of the adulterous woman in the Gospel: whoever has not sinned let him cast the first stone.”
  4. Five Cameroonian soldiers have been killed in an attack on a military post in the far north of the country, sources told AFP on Tuesday. The five, one of whom was an officer, were killed on Monday night in the village of Sagme, close to the Nigerian border and the Lake Chad region, according to relatives and local sources. Three other soldiers were wounded. No one has claimed responsibility for the killings but the area has seen many incursions by the Nigerian jihadist group Boko Haram in the past. The Cameroonian army has not commented. Cameroon, along with Chad and Niger, has joined a military effort by Nigeria to crush Boko Haram, a militant movement opposed to Western influence and seeking an Islamic state based on Sharia law, but the countries have increasingly seen the conflict spread across their borders. Since 2014, the group has killed 2,000 civilians and soldiers and kidnapped about 1,000 people in northern Cameroon, according to an analysis by the International Crisis Group (ICG) think tank. Boko Haram has caused the deaths of at least 20,000 people since it took up arms in 2009. In December, a report by the UN Committee against Torture denounced “serious crimes and atrocities” by Boko Haram in Cameroon but also said it had great concern over reports of abuse by Cameroonian security forces.
  5. One of the Boko Haram suspects in white shirt is No.5 on the Nigerian Army wanted list and three other suspected members of the group have been arrested by troops of Operation Lafiya Dole. The vehicle conveying the suspect and three members of the civilian vigilante (Civilian Joint Task Force), were intercepted by troops on Thursday 29th March 2018 at the Forward Operations Base along Kano – Azare road, in Bauchi State. On interrogation, the Civilian Joint Task Force members claimed to have arrested the suspects in Lagos and he is taking them to Department of State Service (DSS) office in Maiduguri for further investigations. Efforts are being made to contact DSS office in Maiduguri for possible confirmation of the Civilian Joint Task Force claims.

  6. The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has joined Nigerians in praying that God ensures the safe return of the lone Dapchi schoolgirl, Leah Sharibu, still in the captivity of Boko Haram Islamists. Leah, the only Christian among the abducted schoolgirls, was not released with her colleagues Wednesday because she would not renounce Jesus Christ and her religion. Her act of defiance not only shed more light on the nefarious activities of Boko Haram Jihadists, but drew attention of many to the plight of minorities in the northeast. As Nigerians call on the Federal Government to secure her immediate release, Adeboye, in a tweet on his official handle Friday, prayed that the Lord should intervene in her case. He said God should “visit the camp of the captors and “in a way that You alone can, see to the safe release and return of the missing girl, Leah Sharibu, in Jesus name.” In another tweet, he said: “Isaiah 49:25: But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.” Also, the Catholic Bishop of Oyo, Bishop Emmanuel Badejo, appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to facilitate Leah’s release, TheNation writes. “The biggest litmus test for President Buhari and the APC government in this Dapchi girls saga is the case of Leah Sharibu, the only kidnapped Dapchi girl yet to be released by Boko Haram,”Badejo told reporters. “Leah, on the evidence of her colleagues, was not freed because she refused to renounce her Christian faith. “Anyone who thinks this is just a Christian problem will be making a big mistake,” he said. “No amount of accolades will suffice to congratulate the girl and her parents who nurtured her to be that strong in her faith as to demonstrate such courage.” President Buhari hosted the Dapchi schoolgirls Friday and promised that Leah will be reunited with her parents.
  7. Boko Haram terrorists were seen on camera receiving a “heroic” welcome as they dropped off high school girls abducted from Dapchi in Yobe state at the early hours of today. Boko Haram members who escorted the released Dapchi school girls back home were hailed by residents as they dropped off some of the abducted girls at an open field around a police station and zoomed off. Locals trooped out in hysteria to receive the girls as they cheered the terrorists while some eyewitnesses were brave enough to shake hands with some of the dreaded terrorists. Witnesses said the insurgents stormed the town early Wednesday morning fully armed but harmed nobody while some of its members preached to the residents to avoid western education which the group stands against. Reports have it that the Nigerian government relaxed security as part of the deal struck with the militants to facilitate the delivery of the first batch of the girls numbering about 101.

Boko Haram terrorists had on Monday attacked the school abducting many of the students. In an interview with The Nation, Amina narrated how the incident happened. She said: "When Boko Haram came to our school, we thought they were soldiers because they dressed like soldiers. "We ran, and then one of them called us. One of them asked me to come to the car. "I got close to the car, and then one of them started laughing at me. "I moved closer to them, thinking they were soldiers. "I soon realized that they were not soldiers. As I made to run away, one of them tried to grab me. I dodged him but he got my hijab. I quickly removed my hijab and left him with it and ran away. I thought I was dead. "They entered our hostel again, but some of us ran into the bush. I ran up to five kilometres and hid in one Fulani settlement called Miligia."

  11. Boko Haram attack military base in Yobe

    A group of fleeing Boko Haram insurgents have attacked a military base in Kanama, headquarters of Yunusari Local Government in Yobe State. The Chairman of the Local Government, Ali Yerima, who confirmed the attack to our correspondent said the insurgents came in large numbers in seven Hilux trucks and made their way through the middle of the town and headed straight to the military base in the town at about 6.30pm where they launched their attack. He said though he could not confirm any casualty in the attack, he was however confident that the insurgents did not attack any civilian in the town. The information I got is that the insurgents were loaded in seven Hilux trucks. They passed through the town to attack the military base. My sources informed me that no civilian was attacked, only the military base was attacked but I also gathered that the soldiers fought very well to repel their adversaries,” he said. The chairman also informed that the movement of the insurgents through the town caused panic and fear among residents who ran in different directions for safety. An impeccable security source informed that the insurgents were fleeing from the heat in Borno State. “There has been a serious heat on the insurgents from Borno axis. You notice there was a fighter jet hovering over Borno and Yobe,” the source said. The spokesman for 3 Division Nigeria Army Col. Kayode Ogunsaya did not respond to calls and text message sent to him by our correspondent. Yobe State Police Commissioner Abdulmaliki Sunmonu said he cannot give details of the attack because “the area is fully under military operations and control but I think they are in control of the situation.”
  12. The Nigerian Army has replaced the theatre commander of the troops fighting the Boko Haram sect, Ibrahim Attahiru, after half a year following a string of insurgency attacks despite years of official claims the group has almost been defeated. The shake-up underscores the fragility of the security situation in Nigeria’s North East where the conflict with Boko Haram is now in its ninth year, despite assertions by President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration that it is on its last legs. Attahiru is being replaced by Major Gen. Rogers Nicholas in the wake of a series of “embarrassing” attacks, two military sources told Reuters. They said the conduct of the war against the insurgents is now being reviewed. “The attacks that occurred during Attahiru’s command included the kidnapping of members of an oil prospecting team which led to at least 37 people being killed in July, and deadly assaults on the towns of Magumeri, Biu and Madagali,” the sources said.
