Jonathan Sends Troops To Somalia While Nigerians Battle Islamists At Home

AU troops

Amidst a widening outbreak of violence and assassinations attributed to the Islamist Boko Haram group, Nigerian soldiers are being diverted to war-torn Somalia under an agreement reached between Presidents Goodluck Jonathan and Barack Obama.

Aljazeera reports that about 120 Nigerian soldiers landed in Aden Ade International airport in Mogadishu last Wednesday.
 
Jonathan reportedly agreed to the deployment during his recent meeting with Obama at the White House.
 
 The soldiers are part of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM). Although, Jonathan secretly arranged the deployment, sources said he plans to contribute more soldiers to the proposed contingent of 8,000 from all of Africa assigned to combat Islamist insurgents in Somalia.
 
Evidence is mounting that the indigenous Islamist group is being trained in other conflict regions. According to the website Jihad Watch, the Islamist group has declared that: "Very soon, we will wage jihad...We want to make it known that our jihadists have arrived in Nigeria from Somalia where they received real training on warfare from our brethren who made that country ungovernable..."
 
 "This time round, our attacks will be fiercer and wider than they have been," it said, adding it will target all northern states and the country's capital Abuja.
 
The statement in Hausa, a widely spoken language in the north, was anonymously delivered to journalists in the northeastern city of Maiduguri, where the attacks are concentrated. The statement was attributed to the "Jama'atu Ahlis-sunnah lidda'ati wal Jihad", another name the sect calls itself.

The north will be like Somalia

we are not fools like Boko Haram we know where they are coming from and we are ready to match them bomb for bomb, gun for gun , violence is not exclusive to the northern Nigeria and their body is not made of plastic and we are very excited to see the demise of this British creation called Nigeria .
The evil and treacherous British government will fall by their sword as Pakistan is now reaping the fruits of their evil seed, The Islamic Republic of the North will be an albatross in the neck of the British , after the terrorist bombing of British train stations and buses which the perpetrators said was as a result of the suffering of the Palestine which was another British creation , they sent Tony Blair to appease them to no avail , soon the north will be their number one enemy. British created another problem in Sudan where they merged Southern Sudan with Arab Northern Sudan

CHINEKE MEE. OH! MY GOD.

There is Fire in the House and GEJ is chasing Rat {CHINEKE MEE}.Please with immediate effect Mr.GEJ,return the Nigerian soldiers back home because it is not worth it to send a single troope to any of these hopeless countries killing innocent people with the belief they are fighting for God,what a shame to do so.

As Usual

Now i beleive Sowore and the co behind SR enjoys seeing Nigerians attack each other day after day, that is why they won't stop publishing trash. Did SR tells us what Nigeria stands to gain from sending troops to Somalia? or are they saying GEJ is another Blair? Has SR heard of Foreign Policy? What exactly do they want from GEJ? he is slow today, a dimwit tomorrow, an idiot the next and Nigerian elected him as President?

Why can't SR publish a article trying to reconcile North and South and stop flaming the fire with crappy articles?

Who has the Ace in the Hole?

I am southerner. I urge my northern brethren to stay calm. I know that Ignorant racists from GEJ Vermin dwellings come on this site to insult ur religion and ur people. Dont fret, remember that ther are 5 army divisions in Nigeria, and if my memory serves me right all but one have Northern GOC's. The only important detachment that may not have a Northern commander at this time is Presidential Guard Brigade. When the time is right, "1966" will be repeated, only this time all looters(north, east, west, and south) HAVE TO GO. So dont worry PATRIOTS shall have the last laugh in this here Nigeria. This ERA shall be referred to as "the Sharpening of Knives"

Come On SR

Come on Sr, just 120 soldier out of 150,000,000,000,000 for goodness sack. Big f*ing deal.

120 that's the number of soldiers that did not even show up for roll-call this morning in some village post.

How clever is our President?

Americans want Africans to do their dirty work for them which is understandable, however, just as Jonathan is agreeing sending his soldiers to Somalia with the US President, he should also be demanding a monetary package in the region of $100million. $20million in exchange for american military hardware and the remaining $80million for the upkeep of our soldiers. Out of that $80million, if he channels $40million to fighting boko haram (used in gathering intelligence, reinforcements border patrol and aerial reconnaissance) and the remaining going into our treasury, SMART MOVE..
If I'm one of his advisers, that is what I'm gonna be telling him.

HOW SMART IS OUR PRESIDENT?

Implosion in Nigeria

It is sad to read of the state of affairs in Nigeria today. How can people not have demanded for resignation of the governor, IG, and president. It is inconceivable here in the West that murderous barbarians such as boko haram are slaughtering Nigerians with impunity and not a single arrest has been made. All that the authorities come out with are pathetic statements that only belittles them. I hope northerners will be smart enough to mercilessly deal with these criminals because waiting for the government to perform their constitutional duty ie protecting of life and livelihood, is akeen to waiting for ones own demise without putting up a fight. Nigeria is at a cross road and it is difficult to tell which way it will turn.

Please tell them o! Because

Please tell them o! Because the kind of hatred and wicked words that I see on SR comments is getting out of hand

jonathan DOERS NOT

Seem like jonathan does not know the problem facing polices/soldiers in nigeria. What make according to report that polices/soldiers involved in boko haram activities, bcos polices/soldiers have been cheated for long, many retired they can not have house to live with they family, even the services one accomodation is a problem today, tell me why boko haram will not use money to buy their mind in this kind of critical condition. PDP Govt have failed stop using religion to make you continou enjoy only with family. I would continious to pray sooner when christians/muslim will come together and get the right leaders.

au

nigeria must play and claim its positon in africa by honouring military responsability in africa.

Mallam Soldiers2

Olusegun Olaleye. I am a southerner like yourself infact born to an Anglican Yoruba father and Catholic Delta mother. A southerner that cuts across if you like. However I think it is uncivil to say 'The ealier northerners annihilate themselves, the better for the south.' Let us not forget that we are all HUMANS and NIGERIANS. Whilst there is no doubt that we have suffered a great deal from Northern military rulers, we should also not forget that the guys throwing bombs are aminority in the north. We need to see ourselves as one people and combat our problems as a people in order for our lives to be safe.

The word Annihilate reminds one of what Hitler wanted to do to the jews and he ended up killing over 2 million. Each people group have a right to existence and to use the word annihilate is a show of utter hatred for others just because of who they are. I am a proud Ondo/Delta man. I also remember that Nigeria's topmost worship leader Panam Percy Paul is from the North. Ribadu who most of us are proud of is from the North. Abdulsallam who handed over to civilians is from the North and so on. Please lets not make sweeping statements that can cause hatred and trigger some buffons in Maiduguri to start killing innocent people. Thanks my brother

JONATHAN, THE OPPORTUNIST

WE WARNED NIGERIANS DIDN'T WE! WHAT YOU SOW YOU REAP. YOU SOW YOUR VOTE FOR JONATHAN, YOU REAP WHATEVER IT IS JONATHAN IS DOING NOW....

Rot in HELL curious1

You are the biggest IDIOT I've known in my life. How on EARTH can you nake such comments. I also blame SR for allowing such idiots to publish this nonsense. He should be banned from making comments again. GOD is GOD, bastard. You will rot in HELL.

We IMPORT what we have in

We IMPORT what we have in abundance (petrol, human resouses, skill add ur own) and EXPORT what we dont have at all (security, electricity, food...add ur own)

@ Shehu tijjani

Curious1,your type are the rags of this earth. In this age,when your gods,the white men,are learning and leaning towards Islam,you are left rotten n the pits of ignorant hatred.go and read about the council of nicea, the inquisition in Spain especially. Read about a biblical god who "revealed" a whole book of incest,a god who let his "prophet" commit incest with his daughter,a religion that inspired a whole race of harlots(your edo sisters and daughters),a religion that makes you a drunkard,your mothers prostitutes,your sons robbers(anini et al).see thyself before you condemn others. Your hatred of Islam is in vain,because it is driven by ignorance. You follow a religion that is built on myth and blind faith, a religion that killed Galileo because he said the earth wasn't flat as taught in your bible. A religion that was built around the hallucinations of a killer and madman(Saul, or Paul) and the political ambitions of a cruel emperor(Constantine).
Read, poor soul,before you open your sinful stinking mouth.

Shehu, when next you go on your prayer mat to bow to bloodthirsty allah beg him to kill me before daybreak tomorrow. Tell allah I insulted him too much. Tell your imam and some marabouts to join you in the prayer, make sure you pronounce some fatwa.

My sweet fresh blood plus all the insults is enough incentive for allah and his pervert prophet mohamed to try very hard to kill me. Come back tomorrow and check to see if I'm still around.

THIS WAS A VERY SMART MOVE BY THE PRESIDENT

We have to uproot the evil of 'Boko Haramism' or whatever names these satanic inspired murderers prefers to call themselves from the source. The President need not do anything in secret. He had all the constitutional powers at his disposal, so sometimes, this marijuana inspired write-up by Sowore ends just been that. No substance. He hardly can think without his daily jab.

THANK GOD!

A Monster created in the North cannot be tamed by its own people; what a shame!

Go on Boko Haram, kill all Northerners for the sake of the blood of the innocent people lost after the election.

Where aree those cowards who slaughtered NYSC members? Where are the morons who killed innocent Christians? Where are the fools who destroyed properties? Now you have a war on your hands, why cant you fight it?

Thank God for Boko Haram, it has clearly revealed the cowardice of the Northerners who now sleep with one eye closed.

President Jonathan can send 50,000 troops to Somalia or Iraq for all I care!

Jonathan's charity begins from outside

Don't blame the lame duct, clueless opportunistic guy who calls himself the president. Charity begins at home, niger is not his home, so his charity can start anywhere; there moron has not nothing about the bombing since last October; weep for Nigeria this guys is a sure miss for the next for years.
