NEWSBoko Haram: Army discloses Shekau commander’s revelation on those helping terrorists

The Nigerian Army on Thursday said it had received reports indicating that the war against Boko Haram terrorists was being sabotaged by some stakeholders operating in the North East.

It said this disclosure was made by a high profile Boko Haram Commander, Mohammed Modu (an Amir in the Abubakar Shekau’s faction), who was arrested by troops of 251Task Force Battalion Operation LAFIYA DOLE on Sunday.

This information was contained in a statement by Col Sagir Musa, Acting Director Public Relations.

According to him, preliminary investigations revealed that the Shekau’s faction of Boko Haram has been receiving “humanitarian support” of food and drugs supplies from some Non-Governmental Ourganisations (NGOs).

It reads: “The NA strongly warns the affected agencies to desist from compromising Nigeria’s national security and war efforts against terrorism and operate in accordance with the extant rules and regulations guiding the operations of humanitarian aid workers, and in line with the guidelines and procedures of International Humanitarian Laws as well as the Laws of Armed Conflict.

“The NA wishes to remind the NGOs in the North East and members of the public at large that similar concerns were raised on this same issue previously.

“Thus, the NA will no longer tolerate such acts of sabotage inimical to the fight against terrorism by any organisation or agency, and will not hesitate to sanction any such recalcitrant organization as appropriate.”
