Governor Babagana Zulum has recently made a proclamation that the Nigerian army has abandoned people to their fate and accused the army of extorting people at the check point instead of engaging in their primary assignment.
This issue attracted a wide media coverage with actors from different spectrum of life pitching their views. Some analysts lacks the relevant analytical gambit and commonsensical adequacy to surface justice to the issue. This is not in any way trying to exonerates the army from what had transpired between them and the governor at the check point.
Insecurity is still dancing Yoga at some of the remote areas of Maiduguri and other town of Borno State. But our gallant military has been trying in the war against the terror bedevilling the state yet some people were trying to discredit their effort while at their confort zone. I think the Nigerian Army should be commended in every way possible for keeping the fight strong even without the support of external forces within our sovereign entity. If history is worth going by, as seen in Afghanistan, Lebanon, Yemen and other neighbouring countrries.
Less we forget, the b-boys were endlessly terrorising states and even the state capital Abuja where the President is situated, isn’t this a big shame and a total slap to our hospitable giantness? Kano, Bauchi, Adamawa, Gombe among host of others are states that fell victim to Boko haram incessant massacre.
Nigeria Army as at today, enclave this animals to their origin and took the fight right next to them, isn’t this commendable?
How many of us can surge the courage and confront an enemy who wants nothing from you but death.
Fathers, friends, brothers husbands, have all died without any valuable benefits just to safe guard the territories and shores of Nigeria.
And yet we look at them in the face and call them names instead of praying for them, we chose to devise to making jittery of a war that even today American troops in Afghanistan, Iraq, are yet to come and finish the Taliban. A war of almost 20 years.
Let’s learn to give them a fair chance, they might be wrong, yes no human is perfect but do they warrant our indiscipline attitude if they keep arms today many of us will either be dead or scavenging for food In neighbouring Niger Cameroon or Chad.
The federal government should as a matter of urgency checkmate the return of bokoharam and call an emergency meeting with the security chiefs.
Nobody’s life is worth killing the way some fellow Nigerians have turn animals in human form are deliberately justifying their killings to make ends meet.
It’s worrisome and irksome as to why the President is still retaining the current service chiefs. If their ideas is faded they should take a bow and let other fresh heads oversee the affairs of the country.
