July 6, 2014 – Nigerian Army Leaks Operational Strategies To Boko Haram
Today during Sunday service at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Catholic Church, Mogadishu Cantonment in Abuja, Chief of Army Staff, Kenneth Minimah said the Nigerian military is acquiring new equipment and undergoing more training to battle Boko Haram and other terrorist groups in the country.
The service which was to mark the 2014 Nigerian Army Day Celebration, NADCEL, themed: “Combating Current National Security Challenges through Collective Effort”.
Here is the transcript of his message;
“We are going through troubled times, but they will soon come to an end, and we shall be glad at the end. I promise you it will come to an end and we will be victorious,” the army chief said.
“The war against terrorism is a collective effort of all Nigerians and I appeal to all Nigerians to join hands in fighting this new war of terrorism.”
“I also appeal to them (Nigerians) that terrorism is a new warfare. It requires time and patience for us to defeat it. I am very much optimistic that we will deliver. We will win the war. What we have in the North-East will certainly come to an end soon.”
“Our job is to continue to protect and preserve the unity of this country and making it stable for prosperity. Our job is also to uphold our constitutional role, which is to defend the country’s territorial integrity from insurgency and external aggression, and provide aid to civil authority. That, we will continue to do,” .
Why is the Nigerian army revealing secret operational strategies to Boko Haram cheaply like this? The Chief of Army Staff must be cautioned.
