BOKOHARAM’S PLOT TO KIDNAP AND KILL BUHARI – SEE WHAT NIGERIAN ARMY DID NEXT


Maj.-Gen Kasimu AbdulKarim, the General Officer Commanding (GOC), 2 Division, Ibadan, says the Nigerian Army has totally decimated the activities of Boko Haram insurgents in the country.

AbdulKarim disclosed this on Tuesday during an interactive session with newsmen at the Tiger’s Den, Adekunle Fajuyi Cantonment, Ibadan.

“If you look at what has been happening before now and make a comparison yourself, you will know that the Armed forces are in charge.  This is coming hours after one of the factions of the deadly Boko Haram sect unveiled a new video showing how the terrorists in their thousands observed prayers during the Eid ceremony.

The militant sect under the leadership of Abubakar Shekau showed members in three separate praying grounds in Borno and the Lake Chad area.

The recording, narrated in Hausa, was posted on YouTube on September 13, Tuesday, and the group said it was using it to send out message that it remained a strong force.

The Boko Haram faction threatened President Muhammadu Buhari, saying that its members are still many and stay resilient despite the Nigerian army operation that killed scores of its foot soldiers and recaptured Nigerian territory under its control.

The group said:
“This is our eid prayer from us and by the support of our leader Imam Abubakar Al-Shekau. We are extending our greetings to our people and fighters.

“Message to the infidels and the leader of the entire infidels (kafir) who is the President of Nigeria,

Muhammadu Buhari, that he should know we are very strong and doing very good. “By the will of Allah under the leadership of our leader (Shekau) will capture Buhari with our hands.”

But the Army GOC, AbdulKarim debunked the sect’s claims:
“We have not been having incessant attacks on either hard or soft targets,” he said. AbdulKarim said that the division would continue to provide adequate security within the western region of the country. According to him, “this division has not actually had so much security challenges as compared to other areas.

“The western region is the most peaceful in the country and we will uphold it,” he said.

He said the division had been able to deal decisively with issues of kidnapping, robbery, cultism and herdsmen clashes.

“Some of the suspected Boko Haram members arrested within our division have been handed over to the police for prosecution,” he said.
