BREAKING: Boko Haram slaughters Chief Imam, four others in Borno

​The Chef Imam of Kurmiri Village in Titiwa ward of Magumeri local government area of Borno State was on Sunday night killed alongside four others, when suspected members of dreaded Boko Haram sect, attacked the village.

Kurmiri village of Titiwa Ward, is about 15 kilometres away from Magumeri Local Government headquarters of Borno state.

Reports reaching press on Monday, said the Chief Imam, Ustaz Goni Bukar Tabare is the elder brother to a popular politician in Magumeri, Mallam Goni Kundube.

Magumeri had witnessed series of deadly attacks in recent past including the ambush, killing and abduction of NNPC oil exploration workers, contracted staff of University of Maiduguri and members of Civilian JTF in Bornoyesu village in July this year.

Eyewitnesses said the attackers came into the village armed with Ak47 rifles, knives and machetes, but decided to execute their mission on their victims using machetes, because using guns will alert many residents to repel the attacks, even though, sources said, one of the attackers was arrested.

Confirming the attack, the Caretaker Chairman of Magumeri Local Government Area, Alhaji Abubakar Abdulkadir in an interview with our Correspondent said, “Chief Imam of Kurmiri village and four other persons were slaughtered by suspected members of Boko Haram sect last night.”

Abdulkadir who regretted the incident assured his people that adequate security have been provided and normalcy have been restored.

His words: “We in Magumeri wake up this morning (Monday) and recieved a distress call that one of our Community witnessed Boko Haram attacks.

” Five people were slaughtered including Chief Imam of Kurmiri village. We regreted this attack and we Pray Allah (God) grant Aljanul Firduas to the souls of the deceased and their families to bear the irreparable loss.

“I want to commend the effort of our Civilian JTF and other security agencies for their prompt action which led to the apprehension of one of the attackers.

“I also want to urge members of the general public not to panic, but go about their businesses as the situation is under control,” Abdulkadir stated.

We Will Not Use Military Force Against Fulani Herdsmen – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government has ruled out the use of military might to subdue the attacking force of rampaging Fulani herdsmen.

Minister of Interior, Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau, retd, while featuring on a Channels Television programme, “Question Times” on Sunday night said deployment of the military to combat the Fulani herdsmen menace was not an option because, the situation has not overwhelmed the police yet.

According to the Minister, “We must protect the country which is the main function of the police. The Civil Defence are there to complement them too.

“This is a non-military issue that borders on law and order. It is not every security issue that you call in the military. It is the responsibility of the police to maintain peace. I believe that if we put the police in proper position in terms of discharging its functions, then there would be no need for military option. The police are equal to the task. If you have to deploy the army, then you are going above board. In any case, I do not even have the power to deploy the military for anything. It is only when the situation gets out of hand that you invite the military.”

Recall that Fulani herdsmen have in recent past attacked several villages across the country, killing scores of people

Breaking: Boko Haram kills 11, injures 13 in Borno

The police and members of the vigilante youth group popularly known as Civilian JTF, yesterday confirmed that 11 persons were killed, 13 injured while eight others are still missing in two fresh Boko Haram attacks in Borno State.

The Civilian JTF operatives had on Friday morning recovered nine corpses of rice farmers who were said to have been abducted by Boko Haram militants on Thursday.

Eight other farmers were also reported missing and five more wounded when the insurgents attacked rice farms in Khaddamari and Dusuman communities of Jere Local Government Area of the state.

Elsewhere along the Maiduguri-Mafa way, two suspected female suicide bombers were killed when they detonated the Improvised Explosive Device (IED) strapped to their bodies. Eight other persons, including a personnel of the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) were injured in the incident.

The state police spokesman, DSP Victor Isuku, in a statement he issued in Maiduguri, said, “yesterday (Friday) at about 1738 hours, two female suicide bombers detonated IEDs against a vehicle on a feeder road off Maiduguri/Mafa highway, close to the NDLEA checkpoint on the outskirts of Maiduguri township.

Just In!! Nigerian Air Force allegedly prolonging fight against Boko Haram [Investigation Reveals]

​The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has been accused of prolonging the fight against Boko Haram terrorists in Sambisa forest and other parts of Borno state through alleged incompetence and badly informed decisions made by top hierarchy of the Air Force.

Some Defence personnel and residents of Borno said that the Nigerian Air force has been unable to make meaningful contribution to the counter-terrorism war in spite of the huge funding and other resources made available to it to complement its effort in the North-East.

Just yesterday, the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, said Nigerian Air Force operations against Boko Haram in the North East has gulped over 1.03 million litres of aviation fuel at the cost of N265 per litre from its reserve which totals N273 million.

However, DAILY POST, gathered that such resources may not have been judiciously deployed in support of Operation Lafiya Dole launched to combat insurgency in the region.

Some Borno residents said they expected the Air Force would have located and carpet bombed the convoy of dozens of Hilux Pickups that ferried away school girls that were abducted in Chibok over three years ago before they got the girls.

They added that the Air Force should have also carpet bombed members of the terror group as they continue to shuttle between Nigeria and neighboring Niger, Chad and Cameroon on a daily basis through the use of motorcades that are visible from the sky.

According to one Defence personnel, “the best practice is for the Air Forces of countries with similar security challenge to carpet bomb such convoys while troops hunt down the terrorists that are usually left in disarray after such operations.

“This method worked in decimating Islamic State terrorists, who become easy targets for Syrian and Iraqi troops in the aftermath of airstrikes from Russian and American aircrafts.

“However, the airstrikes launched by the Nigerian Air force has not yielded such benefits,” he said.

Similarly, another source in the armed forces queried why the Air Force is unable to deploy its resources for aerial surveillance and relay the information gathered from such exercises to ground troop that are in a better position to neutralize the terrorists.

“If the air support were what it should be the kind of Boko Haram ambush that killed several persons on the UNIMAID, NNPC oil exploration team in July this year would not have been possible.

“The other terrorists’ ambushes would have rather led to their destruction since aircraft would simply pound them from the air before they have the chance to do any crazy thing.

“You’ll agree that the counter-terrorism war would have had a better result if the recent talks emanating from NAF had been converted into action the terrorists would have become history by now.

“Instead, all we hear is talk and more talk. We are not seeing aircrafts delivering the needed advantage from the skies,” the source lamented.

DAILY POST also gathered from some Borno residents that the Nigerian Air Force may be wasting pricey ammunitions as some of the airstrikes are usually ill-targeted; hitting abandoned and disused structures in Sambisa Forest.

A source who volunteered only his first name as Adamu, for fear of being identified and victimized, noted that; “it is not unusual for aircrafts to repeatedly pound the same location even when there is no sign of life.

“We see empty shacks, abandoned places, and the next thing aircrafts will come and drop bomb. We will count, one day, two days, three days and there would be not the faintest trace of the smell of death.

“Even small animals in the bush will stench up the place it died but this people will drop bomb and nothing will rot. You look up in the skies later and don’t even see the (carrion) birds that follow death. We then tell ourselves that these airplanes do not want the war to end.”

On its part, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) is however not accepting the damning verdict of Borno residents.

A source at NAF Headquarters, who is a close confidant of Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, claimed that the allegations against the Air Force are simply efforts aimed at tarnishing the good works the third arm of the military is doing to help nip Boko Haram insurgency in the bud.

He revealed that Abubakar is conscious of that negative effort and has increased his media appearances in recent times as part of the Air Force’s public relations effort and to fix the battered image of the service.

“We are aware of how Nigerians feel about NAF (Nigerian Air Force) but we also think it is important that people are made aware of the peculiar challenges that we face as a military organization,” the source who preferred anonymity because he lacks the capacity to speak on behalf of the Air Force explained.

Air Marshal Abubakar himself had publicly declared on September 1 that, “we must redouble our efforts to make sure that we cleanse the forest before they even come out to do harm”.

His reference to Boko Haram coming out (of Sambisa Forest) to do harm reportedly addressed incidents in the past when terrorists easily overran Air Force Bases in attacks that were blamed on poor leadership.

Observers believe Abubakar’s declaration was a subtle admittance of the fact that the Air Force has not been alive to its responsibility in the North East region.

They recall that the Chief of Air Staff once told a retreat through a subordinate that, “recent evaluations of the (Air Force) bases revealed that many commanders and bases were yet to imbibe and adopt the tenets of the new base Defence concept.”

Army Respond to Boko Haram Sallah Message, Claim Death of Shekau’s Deputies

The Nigerian army have responded to the Sallah message sent by the Boko Haram sect taunting them, stating that they have killed 2 deputies of leader Abubakar Shekau.

The army spokesman, Brig-General Sani Usman, said in a statement on Tuesday that the deputies that were killed in the onslaught included Afdu Kawuri and Abubakar Banishek.

He also claimed that the video was a desperate attempt to seem strong even though they are weakening daily.

“We wish to challenge the so-called terrorist leader to produce the five key commanders earlier killed or the video of those Ameers he claimed not dead and are still with him.

“It is also instructive to note that Shekau is scared and rattled by the 40-day ultimatum issued by the Chief of Army Staff to Operation Lafiya Dole to fish him out,”

Usman added;  “The Nigerian Army has noted that in their desperation, the remnants of the Boko Haram terrorists have released yet another video clip yesterday, in which they made all manner of spurious assertions, denying the surrender of some of the terrorists and the killing of five key commanders, among other lies, all aimed at instilling unnecessary fears in law abiding people.

“Although the relevant department is still analyzing the video clip, suffice to state that it is sheer desperation and clear signs of fear as our troops keep closing up on them.”

He also noted that “two other Deputies of the purported Boko Haram terrorist group leader, Afdu Kawuri and Abubakar Banishek, were killed in a successful military operation at Alafa on Sallah day, Friday, September 1, 2017.

“This is in addition to Ba’Abba Ibrahim and 2 other Boko Haram commanders that died after sustaining injuries during their last ambush at Magumeri Local Government Area of Borno State.

“We wish to challenge the so-called terrorist leader to produce the five key commanders earlier killed or the video of those Ameers he claimed not dead and are still with him.

“It is also instructive to note that Shekau is scared and rattled by the 40-day ultimatum issued by the Chief of Army Staff to the Theatre Commander Operation Lafiya Dole and hiding from one hole to another, like the bush rat that he really is,” Usman said.

“We are Here Celebrating Sallah”- Boko Haram Taunt Army In New Message

Terrorist sect Boko Haram released a new message taunting the Nigerian Army, who had been given a 40-day ultimatum to crush the group, saying that they are enjoying Sallah in Sambisa forest and that leader Abubakar Shekau is still alive and well.

In the new video, a commander of the sect who was swapped for the release of 82 Chibok girls, appeared and mocked the military while also threatening that they could attack at any time.

He said; “We have observed the Eid-el-Kabir prayers peacefully with our brothers, wives and children in Sambisa forest under the leadership of Abu-Muhammad -Ibn-Mahammad Abubakar Shekau.

“We thank Almighty Allah for sparing our lives to witness this very wonderful day and good state of health. We want to tell the infidels of the world, infidels in Nigeria and even small ants like Buhari and his attack dogs like Kukasheka and Buratai who gave 40-day ultimatum to kill our leader, Abubakar Shekau that here we are celebrating Sallah in Sambisa.

“I also want them to know that killing Shekau is not the end of us. With or without Shekau Boko Haram will remain. They should know we worship God and Shekau is only leading us on the path of service to the Lord.”

He added that they were ready to attack and were just waiting for the command from Shekau, “They should know that just as they are giving orders to their military to invade our camps; we are also waiting for Shekau’s orders to invade their barracks, towns, and cities at any given time.

“I have said it before and you have seen what I have done. I am not making empty noise; I guess you know who is talking to you, this is ‘Moni’. You have seen what we did in the university and the city of Maiduguri and other places.”

“We mean everything we are saying, and you should wait we are coming after you. We will never dialogue with the government.”

Boko Haram mocks Army, calls Buhari ‘a small ant’ over Shekau

​A Boko Haram Commander, Shuaibu Moni has mocked the Nigerian Army and government over their failure to capture its leader, Abubakar Shekau within 40 days.

Moni, who was part of the Commanders swapped for the release of the 82 Chbok girls in May, said despite the expiration of the ultimatum, they were celebrating Sallah in Sambisa forest.

Moni described President Muhammadu Buhari as “a small ant” over the inability of the military to either capture Shekau dead or live.

According to Moni, “We have observed the eid-el-Kabir prayers peacefully with our brothers, wives and children in Sambisa forest under the leadership of Abu-Muhammad -Ibn-Mahammad Abubakar Shekau.

“We thank Almighty Allah for sparing our lives to witness this very wonderful day and good state of health. We want to tell the infidels of the world, infidels in Nigeria and even small ants like Buhari and his attack dogs like Kukasheka and Buratai who gave 40-day ultimatum to kill our leader Abubakar Shekau that here we are celebrating Sallah in Sambisa.

“I also want them to know that killing Shekau is not the end of us. With or without Shekau Boko Haram will remain. They should know we worship God and Shekau is only leading us on the path of service to the Lord.

“They should know that just as they are giving orders to their military to invade our camps; we are also waiting for Shekau’s orders to invade their barracks, towns and cities at any giving time.

“I have said it before and you have seen what I have done. I am not making empty noise; I guess you know who is talking you, this is ‘Moni’. You have seen what we did in the university and the city of Maiduguri and other places.

Boko Haram Defeat: Military giving Buhari wrong information – Kamale

A member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Adamu Kamale, has said the Military was giving President Muhammadu Buhari wrong information about Boko Haram.

Kamale represents Michika/Madagali Federal Constituency of Adamawa State, where the insurgents had attacked and abducted residents.

In an interview with Punch, the lawmaker said the insurgents were still very much strong and capable of conducting attacks.

“I am from this place (Madagali) and I can authoritatively tell you that my people are not safe. The military are always feeding Mr. President with the wrong information that things are normalising; it’s not true.

“We are happy that Mr. President made a reference to the Boko Haram issue in his broadcast to the nation when he returned from his medical vacation to the United Kingdom. He spoke of stepping up the war against Boko Haram and other forms of insecurity.

“However, we advise Mr. President to match the broadcast with actions because the insurgents are truly killing more people than he is even aware of, particularly in Michika/Madagali Local Government Areas of Adamawa State.

“In the past few days, over 10 lives and over 200 houses have been lost again. The security reports he gets on these two local governments are not detailed.

Members of the Boko Haram sect, yesterday, burnt down Bayan Dutse and Kubu communities of Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

The incident left 14 residential houses destroyed after the terrorists carted away relief items meant for Bayan Dutse village.

 

 

Also, four houses were set ablaze in Kubu village which was predominantly occupied by women, children and aged men, as the youths have deserted the community due to a renewed onslaught by terrorists.

A reliable security officer from Gulak, headquarters of Madagali Council Area, whose relatives and parents were victims of the renewed attacks, said: “It is unfortunate that most of our communities in Madagali Council Area have been under renewed siege by the Boko Haram.”

Happening Now!! See What Boko Haram Did In Borno village over members’ arrest

Boko Haram insurgents have killed six men in Kijimatari village in northeast Borno on Tuesday, AFP reports.

It reported that 9 terrorists stormed the village at 2am, broke into the homes of six men and slit their throats.

It was learnt that the village chief was one of the victims.

“The attackers evaded a nearby military checkpoint by entering the village through bush paths,” said Ibrahim Liman, the head of a local anti-jihadist militia force.

“The chief of the village was among the victims and it was clear the victims were deliberately targeted.”

Local resident Kulo Musa said that while the attackers had carried guns, they “chose to use knives” to avoid alerting soldiers manning a nearby checkpoint.

He said it was a reprisal attack for the arrest of two Boko Haram members who moved into the village claiming to have been displaced from their homes by the jihadists two months earlier.

“We believe the attackers suspected the six people they killed of tipping off the military which led to the arrest of the two Boko Haram fighters,” he said.

BREAKING: See New Tactics Of Boko Haram, Their Latest Move Will Shock You

The Boko Haram terror group in northeast Nigeria have sent out 83 child bombers against Nigerian targets this year, according to a tally by United Nations Children’s Fund.

This is four times as many child suicide bombers used in all of 2016, the UNICEF said.

The UN agency said out of the 83 children deployed by the insurgents, 55 were girls, mostly under 15 years old and 27 were boys. One was a baby strapped to a girl, and in total, nineteen children were used last year, UNICEF said.

The Boko Haram insurgency, now in its eighth year, has claimed over 20,000 lives and forced more than two million people to flee their homes over eight years.

The frequency of suicide bomb attacks in northeastern Nigeria has increased in the past few weeks, killing at least 170 people since June 1, according to a Reuters tally.

UNICEF, in a statement released on Tuesday, said it was “extremely concerned about an appalling increase in the cruel and calculated use of children, especially girls, as ‘human bombs’ in northeast Nigeria. The use of children in this way is an atrocity”.

Boko Haram is trying to create an Islamic state in the Lake Chad region, which spans parts of Nigeria, Niger, Cameroon and Chad. It gained notoriety by abducting more than 200 girls from the northeast Nigerian town of Chibok in April 2014. Aid groups say it has kidnapped thousands more adults and children.

Children who escape are often held by authorities or ostracized by their communities and families. Nigerian aid worker Rebecca Dali, who runs an agency that offers counseling for those who were abducted, said children as young as four were among the 209 escapees her organization had helped since 2015.

“They (former abductees) are highly traumatized,” Dali told Reuters on Monday at the United Nations in Geneva, where she received an award from the Sergio Vieira de Mello Foundation for her humanitarian work.

Her team, which includes former police officers, identified some returnees as having been trained as suicide bombers.

“There were two girls taught by Boko Haram to be suicide bombers … The girls confirmed that they were taught that their life was not worth living, that if they die detonating the bomb and killing a lot of people, then their lives will be profitable,” Dali said.

Some 450,000 children are also at risk of life-threatening malnutrition in 2017 by the end of the year in northeast Nigeria, UNICEF said.

President Muhammadu Buhari, has also given fresh orders to the service chiefs to clamp down on every security threat in the country including the Boko Haram terrorists.

The full UNICEF Press statement reads below:

Abuja, Geneva, 22 August 2017 – UNICEF is extremely concerned about an appalling increase in the cruel and calculated use of children, especially girls, as ‘human bombs’ in northeast Nigeria. Children have been used repeatedly in this way over the last few years and so far this year, the number of children used is already four times higher than it was for all of last year.

Since 1 January 2017, 83 children have been used as ‘human bombs’; 55 were girls, most often under 15 years old; 27 were boys, and one was a baby strapped to a girl. The sex of the baby used in the explosion was impossible to determine.

The use of children in this way is an atrocity.Children used as ‘human bombs’ are, above all, victims, not perpetrators.The armed group commonly known as Boko Haram has sometimes, but not always, claimed responsibility for these attacks, which target the civilian population.

The use of children in such attacks has had a further impact of creating suspicion and fear of children who have been released, rescued or escaped from Boko Haram. As a result, many children who have managed to get away from captivity face rejection when they try to reintegrate into their communities, compounding their suffering.

All of this is taking place in the context of a massive displacement and malnutrition crisis – a combination that is also deadly for children.

There are 1.7 million people displaced by the insurgency in the northeast, 85 per cent of them in Borno State, where most of these attacks take place.

Northeast Nigeria is one of four countries and regions facing the spectre of famine, with up to 450,000 children at risk of severe acute malnutrition this year.

UNICEF is providing psychosocial support for children who have been held by Boko Haram and is also working with families and communities to foster the acceptance of children when they return. This includes providing social and economic reintegration support to the children and their families.

UNICEF also supports reconciliation activities in northeast Nigeria, led by respected community and religious leaders, including influential women, to help promote tolerance, acceptance and reintegration.

Boko Haram: Fed Govt approves N3 billion for schools in North-east

The federal government has approved N3 billion through the Universal Basic Education Commission, UBEC to be used to rehabilitate schools affected by Boko Haram insurgency in the North-east.

The Executive Secretary of UBEC, Hameed Bobboyi, said the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, gave the approval for the funds to assist in basic education in the North-east.

“Our intervention has to come with re-establishing teaching and learning process, students have to be re-convinced to return back to school, ” the executive secretary said.

Mr. Bobboyi also said UBEC has agreed to build model schools in each senatorial zone, as the schools would serve as backbones of the system, adding that in the next five years, the commission has plans of building these schools in all the 774 Local government areas in Nigeria.

 

He noted that by the end of September 2017, the commission would produce a National Basic Education Sector Plan, saying there was a need for the nation to plan on strategic areas to be able to build the solid foundation needed for the development of the nation.

The North-east has been invaded by Boko Haram insurgency that has claimed tens of thousands of lives and displaced many more.

The UBE programme is a nine- year basic educational programme, which was launched and executed by Nigerian to eradicate illiteracy, ignorance and poverty as well as stimulate and accelerate national development, political consciousness and national integration.

Boko Haram’s Original Intention Was Not To Abduct Us – Chibok Girls

​More information around the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls from Chibok, Borno State by Boko Haram insurgents in 2014 has emerged through secret dairies kept by the girls.

One of the authors of the dairies, Naomi Adamu wrote that the insurgents had come to the school on that night in April 2014, to steal machinery for house building and when they could not find what they were looking for, the militants were unsure what to do with the girls.

“One boy said they should burn us all, and they (some of the other fighters) said, ‘No, let us take them with us to Sambisa (Boko Haram’s remote forest base) … if we take them to Shekau (the group’s leader), he will know what to do,” She wrote.

Naomi Adamu was among 82 of the Chibok girls released by Boko Haram in May – part of a second wave after 21 of them were freed in October. They are being held in a secret location in Abuja for what the government has called a “restoration process.”

The authenticity of the diaries, written by Adamu and her friend, Sarah Samuel, cannot be verified, nor their intended role as the government negotiates with Boko Haram for more releases but a copy was obtained exclusively by the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

According to the diaries, they started documenting their ordeal, in passable English, with some parts scribbled in less coherent Hausa, a few months after the abduction, when Boko Haram gave them exercise books to use during Koranic lessons.

To hide the diaries from their captors, the girls would bury the notebooks in the ground, or carry them in their underwear.

The diaries shed light not only on the horrors the girls endured under Boko Haram, but their acts of resistance, and their staunch belief that they would one day go home. They even devised amusing and mocking nicknames for the fighters.
