Soldiers Killed by Boko Haram

We Are Being Slaughtered On Daily Basis By Boko Haram; They Barred The Press From Covering The War - Serving Nigerian Soldiers Cry Out

The Same Ideaology

A serving Nigerian Soldier who doesn’t want his name in print has cried out that they are being slaughtered on daily basis by Boko Haram. This call is coming even at a time the President of Nigeria claimed he has triumphed over Boko Haram. Of recent, there have been increased bombings and murder by the dreaded Islamic terrorists group but the government of Nigeria is doing everything they could to suppress or conceal the news. The serving Nigerian Soldier who shared the experience of what Nigerian troops is passing through has termed the onslaught against them ‘very regrettable’. He noted that while they are giving it everything they have and the government is taking their sacrifices and death for granted; the Soldiers might one day turn against their commanders.

Book Haram menace played a major role in bastardizing Jonathan’s government and with Buhari being fingered as the man behind the bloody campaign against Jonathan, it was believed that giving him power would arrest the situation. As a man that ordered Northerners to react against the outcome of the 2011 election he said was rigged, the reaction spilled into post election violence that claimed hundreds of lives. That was where Boko Haram became a threat and from then till this moment was chronicle of bloodshed.

Stopping Boko Haram became the primary objective of Buhari’s administration and he has become obsessed with that. Buhari is doing everything possible to make sure that Boko Haram is stopped but it has persevered. Releasing prisoners at random, giving unofficial amnesty and promising direct recruitment into Nigerian military were least of the measures to curb Boko Haram.  Knowing that terrorism anchored by extremists hardly goes and to please his backers, he dishonestly approaches everything about Boko Haram.

We have heard about technical defeat, and we have heard about remnants of Boko Haram, there is desperation to conceal or suppress the activities of Boko Haram. All these are lies or efforts to curb or suppress the reality; Boko Harma is very much with us and carrying on its activities. Buhari has gone on to demand appreciation for defeating Boko Haram while bombs still go off every day and killing people. Using the press to conceal the onslaught against Nigerians and serving Soldiers is lack of respect to human existence.

The serving Soldier who explained what they are passing through said that there is a serious war raging in the North and that the only victory recorded so far is the clampdown on the press to stop reporting everything. Recall that Buhari had called on Nigerian press to help in the fight against terrorism and claimed that reports that are against Nigeria or the military always boost the morale of the terrorists. The Soldier also frowned at the various reports that there is no town under the control of Boko Haram; saying that there are no-go areas for them as they are the territory of Boko Harma.

“I want to tell you that we are being killed on a daily basis; Boko Haram is on top of the situation here. This is an Islamic Jihad movement and they are supported by Muslims; they might not tell you on the pages of newspapers but we on ground, fighting the battle will tell you what is going on. The more we are killed is the more they reinforce; ask your brothers in the force and you will notice that personnel are being shifted to the North regularly, but kept out of the news.” He said and continued.

“Our comrades die every day, Boko Haram is not just a group but a region, and they are much that you can’t kill all of them. They come like locust and you kill the ones you can kill and others kill you; boys are hiding or beating the war front, nobody wants to go there again. We are killed in scores on daily basis and the frustrating thing is, they don’t allow the press to come close; the men of the press have limits. When I try to communicate with them and tell them what is going on, they always ask for evidence and I began to wonder what is happening". Having been caught by corruption, Nigerian press has lost credibility.

“If nobody says what is going on here, the government would relax because the people are not complaining. The government always says that they have conquered but that is blunt lie as we are still here and losing our men like flies. There is no truth whatsoever as Boko Haram still control territories and kill us. We are not well taken care of, only supply of bullet is sufficient, what about our feeding, salaries and when we die, they keep our death secret. Bury most of us anywhere they like and accuse us of retreating without order. The world must know what is going on, we are being slaughtered on a daily basis and the press is not allowed to report or come close to where we are” he said.
