Nigeria moves to suppress Boko Haram, ISWAP with intelligence




Nigeria has set in motion a counter-terrorism plan of action to repress Boko Haram and Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) through intelligence.


The Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) is conducting a Defence Advisers/Attachés Annual Conference and Maiden Retreat.


The theme is “Advancing Counter-Terrorism Efforts Through Enhanced Inter-Agency Cooperation: A Whole of Government Approach”.


The one-week high-powered gathering in Abuja starts Monday, November 8 at the DIA Headquarters and Nigerian Army Resource Centre (NARC).


The meet will examine, re-appraise Defence Advisers/Attachés, foreign defence relations, and assist in articulating new strategies in intelligence gathering.

A statement by the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) said the event is the first since its establishment, as there had been no platform for reflections on activities to help attain the core mandate.


The conference seeks to galvanize inputs in view of the myriads of security challenges facing Nigeria and provide an avenue for self-examination to ensure optimal performance.


“This is in line with the policy directive of the President, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.


“The Agency finds it expedient to organise its maiden retreat to provide a forum to appraise the activities of the various Defence Sections as well as brainstorm to proffer new strategies”, the NIA noted.


The list of invitees includes former and current NIA Directors, Chiefs of Defence Intelligence and other selected captains in the intelligence sector. Dailypost

US ready to identify Boko Haram sponsors




The United States has expressed its readiness to help Nigeria to identify sponsors of terrorism in the country.

The US Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Leonard, disclosed this on Monday during a meeting with journalists in Abuja.

The envoy was asked if the US was ready to help Nigeria identify sponsors of terrorism in Nigeria.

She, however, said talks were ongoing on the matter.
Leonard said, “That is something we are very eager to partner Nigeria on.  I have had at least three conversations in the last two months on this subject. I won’t like to go into details.”

She also allayed fear that the US partnership with Nigeria might end up like that of Afghanistan.

According to her, Nigeria has had a strong bilateral relationship with the US, saying that the situations were not the same.

The Commander, US Air Forces in Europe, General Jeffrey Harrigian, said the purchase of Tucano fighter jets was an opportunity to cement the US relationship with Nigeria as well as curbing insecurity. Punchng

‘Boko Haram not in control of Damasak’ - Army releases video evidence




The Nigerian army says Boko Haram insurgents are not in control of Damasak, a community in Mobbar LGA of Borno state. 

The insurgents had attacked villages around Damasak on Wednesday night, leaving several residents displaced. 

Mohammed Yerima, the army’s spokesperson, in a statement on Thursday, said reports that the insurgents overran the area were misinformation.

“As we speak, troops are in total control of the general area and as can be seen in the attached video, the Commander of  5 Brigade, Brig Gen SS Tilawan, is driving round the town earlier this afternoon to assess the general situation following the cowardly attack by the terrorists who sneaked in from the northern flank yesterday in active collaboration of some local informants.

“The Nigerian Army wishes to assure residents of Damasak and adjoining communities to remain calm as mop operation by the troops are ongoing to flush out the remnant of the terrorists who attacked a section of the town.”

Yerima also released a video showing SS Tilawan, the 5 brigade commander, moving around the streets with his soldiers. 

“Today is the 15th of April, everything is working in Damasak,” the commander can be heard saying.

Boko Haram bombers kill seven in Cameroon

   

   

Seven people were killed when two suicide bombers, suspected to be members of Nigeria’s Boko Haram jihadist group, attacked a village in northern Cameroon on Sunday, police and a local official said.

“Two Boko Haram bombers blew themselves up at around 8 pm” in the attack on Amchide, on the border with Nigeria, a policeman said Monday, while a local official said a village chief and two teenagers were among the dead.
   

   
The attack took place as the villagers were “returning home” though a zone that the authorities have said is dangerous after 6 pm, the official said.

Amchide is a small trading village in Cameroon’s Far North province, a tongue of land that lies between Chad to the east and Nigeria to the west.

The province has been hit since 2014 by Boko Haram fighters making incursions from northeast Nigeria.
   

   
The jihadists’ campaign has killed more than 27,000 people since 2009, several thousand of them in Cameroon, and displaced more than two million, sparking a dire humanitarian crisis in the Lake Chad region.

According to Amnesty International, at least 275 people were killed in the Far North last year. Theguardianng

Buratai Insists Nigerian Army Will Crush Boko Haram, Bandits



The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, has insisted that the Nigerian Army, in collaboration with other security agencies, would soon crush all the enemies of national peace and security.

He stated this in spite of the rising cases of attacks by the Boko Haram terrorist group in the North East, as well as banditry in the North West and other parts of the country.


The army chief gave the assurance on Saturday at the Nigerian Army Special Day at the 41st Kaduna State International Trade Fair in Kaduna.

He disclosed that the army recently recorded resounding tactical victory against the terrorists during an onslaught at their camp in Damboa, Borno State and other parts of the north-east zone.

Buratai, who was represented by the Chief of Policy and Plans, Lieutenant General Lamidi Adeosun, reiterated the commitment of the army to crushing the enemies of the Nigerian state through an effective collaboration with other security agencies.


He explained that the main aim of participating in the trade fair was to further foster civil-military relations with the army.

The army boss, however, called for patience, support, and understanding of Nigerians in the effort to overcome the security challenges.

He added that the much-expected victory required the collective effort of all, in addition to divine intervention.


Buratai stressed that apart from its primary role of defending the territorial integrity of the country, the army was prepared to contribute to the nation’s economic development through the invention of locally made military hardware and armoured vehicles.

The highpoint of the event was the display of the first indigenous mine resistant ambush protected armoured vehicle, also known as Ezeugwu, and other military equipment produced by the Defence Industries Corporation of Nigeria (DICON). ChannelsTv

How Boko Haram rejected N50m ransom, killed CAN chairman Lawan


The Boko Haram insurgents killed Rev. Lawan Andimi, the Michika Local Government Area Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) after rejecting a N50m ransom.



The insurgents had taken away the local council CAN chairman two weeks ago when they launched an attack on the council headquarters, Michika.

The Adamawa State Chairman of CAN, Stephen Mamza, said the insurgents demanded a ransom of £2 million, and rejected an offer of N50 million.


“Pastor Lawan was beheaded yesterday,” the state CAN chairman said Tuesday afternoon, adding, “negations were still ongoing when they stopped calling. They were offered N50 million but they rejected it.”


Mamza added that the insurgents called Rev Lawan’s wife last week, informing her that they would be beheading him on Saturday, but that somehow “they waited till Monday, yesterday.”

Lamenting that Christians were beginning to take the heat of killings in Adamawa State, the CAN chairman who is also the Catholic Bishop of Yola, said, “Also yesterday, Pastor Dennis Bagauri of the Lutheran Church was killed in Jereng, Mayo-Belwa area of Adamawa state.


“It is now clear that Christians are not protected by the government; we don’t feel like we have a government.”

In his own reaction, Governor Ahmadu Fintiri said the execution of Rev. Andimi was barbaric.


The Governor said in a statement released by his Director General of Media and Communication, Solomon Kumanga, that he is deeply saddened “by the gruesome execution of the pastor.” Dailypost

Before they received the sad news, City Round learnt that the family had lost communication with him since December 2018, a development that threw his wife and four-year-old daughter into confusion.

The family’s apprehension was heightened by the attack on 157 Battalion in Metele in northern Borno on November 18, 2018 when scores of soldiers were killed by terrorists.


The army reportedly denied deaths of over 100 soldiers in the attack and only confirmed 23 casualties.

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai, in a release signed by Brig Gen Sani Usman, also confirmed that 12 soldiers were killed at Kukawa, Ngoshe, Kareto and Gajiram, all in Borno State, when the troops came under Boko Haram attacks from November 2 to 17, 2018.

The bereaved woman turned down our correspondent’s request to speak with other family members of her late husband, saying they were mourning.

When contacted on the telephone on Friday, the acting Director, Army Public Relations, Col. Sagir Musa, asked our correspondent to send a text message to him and promised to get back with comments.

Boko Haram: Troops extorting N200 from travellers without ID cards


Travellers in commercial vehicles moving in and out of Maiduguri, Borno State, are currently being extorted the sum of N200 per person for failing to provide their national identification cards for clearance to enter the city.



Daily Trust reports that travellers have to pay N200 at some checkpoints situated on the outskirts of the metropolis.

“This practice has been in place for four to five years. A combined team of Immigration Service and the military working at the entrance of this town have been collecting N200 from all passengers who could not produce their national ID cards,” said a Hiace bus driver on arrival at a checkpoint in Maiduguri.

The driver, who parked by the roadside at Jimtilo area, awaiting his passengers to do their clearance with some Immigration personnel, added that it was only “that type of National ID cards” that were
being required for the identification clearance at the checkpoint.




A passenger, Rebecca, who was aboard a Hiace bus along Bama road, heading to Gwoza town, told our correspondent that she has been paying N200 for failing to produce her ID card.

However, the Operation Positive Identification which was inaugurated on Monday by the Theatre Command of the Operation Lafiya Dole did not specify the 'national ID card' as the only means of identification.

“Troops are directed to strictly check legitimate means of identification such as national identification card, voters registration card, drivers’ license, and passport or other valid official identification before allowing such persons passage,” said a
statement on Monday by the Nigerian Army spokesman at the command, Col. Ado Isa.




“Consequently, Operation Positive Identification is seriously ongoing across the North-East. Members of the public are requested to cooperate with the troops by moving along with valid identification cards and present same to the troops in the efforts to rid the North-East zone of criminals fleeing for safety,” the statement added.
