April 23, 2016 – Boko Haram Scientist Converting Cooking, Turkey Vegetable Oil Into Diesel To Power Generator Arrested In Maiduguri Borno

Members of the dreaded Boko Haram sect have found a temporary solution to the fuel scarcity problem in the country by devising a way to convert vegetable oil to diesel, with which they power their generators.

This is as the Nigerian Army reiterated that the curfew imposed in Maiduguri as a consequence of the terrorist group’s activities in the North- East, which takes place from 9pm to 6am daily was still in place, noting that violators would face the music.

Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Col. Sani Kukasheka Usman, said this yesterday during his update on the counter-terrorism war.

He said:

“The troops of 7 Division Special Fighting Forces attached to 25 Task Force Brigade Damboa, at a checkpoint arrested a suspected Boko Haram terrorist, Abubakar Bello, and six other suspects carrying 28 gallons of “Turkey” brand of vegetable oil, eight bags of flour, 130 crates of soft drinks and two bags of sugar.

“In addition, five mobile telephone handsets, one external hard drive and five flash drives, two national identity cards and the sum of N70, 000 only were recovered from him. Preliminary investigation discovered that the terrorists now dilute the vegetable oil with other substances to produce diesel to power their generators.”

The Army spokesman, however, did not give an idea of the substances which the terrorists mix with the vegetable oil to produce diesel.

    Put the man in solitary confinement and for his “hard labor” give him vegetable oil to convert to diessel under close supervision. Nigeria needs such innovative brain and in whatever small measure this misplaced talent can be utilized into something productive use him.

    I don’t know what to make of this story. What knowledge do they have about science that nobody else in the whole of Nigeria has? I know that the Army could use lies to swell the news of their valiant exploits. It has happened before. Hence, I am somewhat skeptical here. They certainly have arrested those suspects. But veg oil to AGO is where I think that “tori” has entered. Oburom ka aga aghogbu like that.

    With this kind of inventive knowledge that they should have used to better their lot, and help move the country forward, they rather chose to engage in a lost battle. Destroying lives they cannot creat and properties.

    The judgement of God is hanging loose on them for all the innocent souls they have killed.

    I take a stroll…

    They should have tell us the substances used in mixing the vegetable oil na. This people don’t want us to learn work. This is the only good thing one can learn from boko haram.

    These guys may not even be boko haram members, lack of knowledge may contribute to their arrest. What they have done is not exactly rocket science , it is call Biodiesel, it is derived from adding alcohol and methanol to vegetable oil and then distilled to produced fuel. this is being done in other countries people do it in their back yard mostly farmers , even you can derive fuel from sugarcane as well it has been done in Brazil. necessity is mother of invention. it is even thought in secondary schools as part of science project, main problem with us is lack of focus and their is no motivation to engage in positive activities, majority wants something for nothing they will rather spent their time seeking miracles, we lack in the mist of abundance. the way things are now if care is not taken we will ever remain riding on the back of other nations, because even the younger generation that are supposed to be the future have now been cultured to continue with this mentality; other countries are moving ahead both in the field of science and technology and space exploration. its just a shame a country so blessed is down in the dump!
