We Are In A War and Must End Boko Haram, Army Chief Boasts

Nigeria Army Chief, Lieutenant General Azubuike Ihejirika, this afternoon in the troubled Northern Nigerian city of Kaduna boasted that the Army is in a war and will end the threat to the country’s sovereignty posed by the Boko Haram sect.

He was speaking at a forum where he reviewed the challenges being faced by officers and men in their confrontation with the Islamic sect.

He told them: “It is high time for you and your men to be in war mood to be able to deal with the current challenges. Otherwise, how do you explain that troops on check point duty would be attacked by these decadences? And they sometimes do that and get away with it. This is an area you must work on. As you are out in the field, at every point in time, make sure you are either conducting an operation or you are gathering intelligence. You must be doing any of the two at any point in time. If your area is too quiet, you have a reason to get worried.

He also addressed the work of the officer corps. “We believe that how your troops perform is a direct reflection of the qualities of their Commanding Officers,” he told them.  “That is why you are assembled here for the next four days to brainstorm on matters of service interest in order to improve and sharpen your professional skills.”

General Ihejirika stressed that the challenges before Nigeria and indeed the Army are well known to every member of the army. “The constitutional provision and the directive of Mr. President and Commander in Chief of Armed Forces for the Nigerian Army to work with other civil authorities to secure every part of this country are also well known,” assuring his men that the army would likely fare better in terms of budgetary provisions for it this year than in the past.

@Omoaholo Imogirie: Nigeria Lacks Sense Of Common Purpose!

@Omoaholo Imogirie
Part of the shadow chasing is exactly what u are advocating. STOP ABUSING OTHER PEOPLE'S FAITH BECAUSE OF THE TRANSGRESSION OF A FEW. With all havoc islamic terrorists wrecked on America over several years, they never denigrate the Islamic religion. Infact, Saudi Arabia which is the spritual home of the muslim remain of the greatest allies of America. Millions of muslims do not share the believe in violence of Boko Haram. If you want to defeat evil, u need to reason above the level of evil. Right now, you reason exactly the way a Boko Haram will reason; hate of other people's faith !
Terrorism require tack and truth to defeat it not foolishness as exhibited presently by Nigerian govt, security operatives and ignorants like you. ACCUSING POLITICAL OPPONENTS OF TERRORISM WITHOUT ANY PROOF OF SUCH IS CHASING SHADOWS. Yaradua was President when Boko Haram problem started but you all conveniently suffer collective amnesia now!

Pepeersoup Army Boss !

Mr. Army boss ..... is it press war or terrorism?

The Boko Haram guys talk very little and yet are more effective in spreading sorrow. All we hear from army man and moron Jonathan is just words and words.
Even common two foreigners couldn't be rescued because as usual moron Jonathan or yeye Army man has told virtualy everyone what they want to do.
Better hand over the country to the Americans to run. FOOLS !

Negotiate with who? After

Negotiate with who? After this group of thugs who would be next? I think what the government needs to do is to try the thugs they have in custody and if found guilty start to publicly execute them one after the other and they will surely get that message. No one knows this more than Isreal, they made sure if you say you are a radical and you want to die they kill you and some. The only reason why this thugs are doing this nonsense is because they get arrested and paraded and nothing is done, after all they are made to join the others arrested and all meet in Kuje prison to laugh at a system that is not able to act deciecively. See how those clowns are delt with in the US? They are all scare of been shipped to the US to face justice...

now it is idealogica.

It is now ideological bcs your people are involved but when it is biafra,it is not self determination ideology but now secession.The army chief is spot on by declaring war.

stop bragging and do your job

Just last week president GEJ bragged that he will end boko haram bombings in june only for these terrorist to bomb scores of innocent Nigerians,now the army chief has boasted again.why don't these ogas stop bragging and do what the law require of them?

they make u a victim - watch out

You are a fool. Soon u will be their victim. Your people will only cry as we will be those burying you. Those fake ihejirikas soldier will only kill by what they will later term as mistake then they will to your corpse as bokoharam. Have u not seen the sss and police do same then will come and lie to us? Have u not seen the recent okene kogi state clash with hoodlums and armed robbers? They later refer to those as bokoharam. They want to make us see them working. Someone has to carry the blame and ur corpse shall be used for their claim of victory on bokoharam. War on nigerians? It has neva been war on armed robbers nor has it been war on the nigerdelta militants

Make una no negotiate with

Make una no negotiate with them wait till them enter Lagos. What would you do? Kill all the Hausas selling Yam in Mile 12 market? How daft some of the people are. Which Soldier? The one wey dem no dey pay salary? Or the one wey after death in family go suffer? Ask the families of the guys who died in the ECOMOG operations what benefit? Their graves have been covered with weeds. The soldiers would soon start negotiating with Boko Haram and by then bombs go begin fly uncontrolled. By then Jona go hide for bunker with in Jack Daniels. Who looses?

Security Matter.

Talk is cheap

Boko Haram & Nigeria's security.

Yeah! they appear to be 'battle ready' for d war with obsolate guns in the hands. (one can see it in the pics above) Guns that were used during the colonial era. While the boko haram group has sophisticated weapons. I dont know what miracle the Nigerian army/police will perfom to end this war. All talk, talk and now action. Pls, stop gambling with innocent people's lives with yr political non sense.ENOUGH!

@ Ibrahim Saad : Well Put !

For months I've been telling them FARC, IRA, ETA, PKK and the Taliban all engage/d in talks with their respective governments. No one has ever won an ideological war, in the end, truce was restored after honest and sincere negotiations. Against the Bokos, Dumbo invited them for talks only to lay ambush and arrest their reps. Again, when concerned northerners convened a meeting to find lasting truce, Dumbo's team leaked details of the discussions that ought to be classified. He went to Asia and gave them a "timetable" for ending the carnage, now his henchmen are talking tough (as if they have the upper hand in the "war"), all this gra-gra can only have adverse effect. Nigerians are dying like flies and fools are talking mumbo-jumbo, playing war games. EiE !
@ ibrahim saad : Your referral is most appropriate, kudos. I'd have said, "when you want to hide something from Dumbo, put it in a book." The clown and his primitive armada of advisers have no use for books.

Boko Harams are ready to die , we are not, we want pepper soup!

This is no rocket science - Boko Haram will continue to win because the members are ready to DIE while nobody is ready or willing to die for NIGERIA.

We all want our pepper soup and SUYA with all the other chop-chop.

Senators and Reps are riding brand new cars, going for conferences without knowing what the conferences are for and just collecting estacode.

Boko Haram menace cannot be eradicated until there is equity for all in the project called Nigeria.

When next a bomb laden car is found, let the COAS be the one to diffuse it. That way, it will be leadership by example.

These boys in the picture are too young to DIE.
After all, all of us want to go to heaven, so, we should not be afraid of death so to expedite our arrival there.

@Zinzon..,thanks for your comment

Thanks very much for your very deep and incisive comment. SR is an enemy of Nigeria. I realised this long time ago but unfortunately, many Nigerians are blind. Some of us visit this site just to SHINE LIGHT on the DARKNESS of SR. SR has no respect for Nigeria or Nigerians.

A BUNCH OF DUDES IN BEDSHEETS AND FLIP-FLOPS!___3

"... a remarkably capable cohort of intelligence analysts that are as educated, well trained and equipped to a degree that used to exist only in science fiction; and our various nations have the economic wherewithal to spend $10s of billions each month to fund it all.

A bunch of dudes in bed sheets and flip-flops."

Nigeria Lacks Sense Of Common Purpose!

We are just chasing shadows & also beating around the bushes. The military has no solutions to our problems. They can rant in whatever language they choose the problems will still remain & stare at our faces. Islam is bent on destroying Nigeria. If they can have it no one else can have it. It is their ways or the high ways. Can't you Nigerians see what is taking place in the islamic countries? They are all musilms still they are killing themselves. If Nigeria is an islamic nation they will have other excuses to wage wars on the rest of the south & northern minorities. Islam has no respect for human persons' dignities. It is their nature. They are born wicked. Their leader mallam Adamu Ciroma who wants to wake Usman Danfodiyo from his grave to come and cleansed the sins of musilms faithful & restore islam in their republic is an example of their madness. Arise from your grave prophet muhammad & join the crusade of Mallam Ciroma.
