SHEKAU A MADMAN, BOKO RAVING LUNATICS


TO: FIELD FROM OSCAR PAPA SUBJ: KASHIM SHETTIMA


GOVERNOR OF BORNO STATE:

""I see him (ABUBAKAR SHEKAU) as a madman, don’t take him as somebody with any sanity, any mental sanity."

 "In this age and time, somebody is talking of selling the girls into slavery?  Can a reasonable, sensible person talk along that line?  For me, he is a madman."

AS FOR BOKO HARAM:

 "But I can assure you that they are not as many people as were made out to believe."

"But because they are setting the pace of the war, they create a lot of havoc and that is precisely what they are doing, and they are not adhering to any international convention. They are just a bunch of raving lunatics, and they are hell-bent on a suicidal path."

WELL SAID, GOVERNOR...


SHETTIMA HAS HIS OWN SET OF PROBLEMS AS REPORTED BY THE OSUN DEFENDER TODAY:



Kashim_shettima The All Progressives Congress (APC) has warned against any plan to remove the elected Governor of Borno and appoint a military administrator to oversee the affairs of the state, under the guise of intensifying the fight against Boko Haram by federal government.
The party said the Presidency seems to be harboring a hidden agenda, which may include allowing the insurgency to fester so that elections will not be able to hold in the area in 2015.
Although the Presidency had on Sunday denied the report alleging plan to oust Borno state governor, Kashim Shettima, APC said in a statement issued on Monday by its Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, that it finds it difficult to beleive the Presidency’s position on the matter.

"OGA AT THE TOP" (BELLANAIJA, MARCH 22, 2014)-- On Thursday evening, a top Boko Haram Leader – who is yet to be confirmed as the “Oga at the Top” – was captured by Special Forces while trying to escape the Gwoza Hills, Borno in a black Toyota Land Cruiser with his escort.
 The Boko Haram member must be a very high ranking member of the group if not the head because he had several Toyota Land Cruiser jeeps in his escort when he was captured."

 REPORTS:

DAILY TRUST, (AUG 2013):
 The Joint Task Force (JTF) said security forces have killed two wanted Boko Haram leaders, Zakari Yau and Muhammadu Bama, who have N10 million bounty on their heads.
Battalion commander of the special operation unit Lt Col. Beyidi Markus disclosed in Mubi, Adamawa State, yesterday that the two were on their way to Wukari in Taraba State for an operation when they were killed in a gun.
 The commander revealed that those paraded yesterday were arrested after attacking a Bureau De Exchange in Mubi International Market and carted away millions of naira in both local and foreign currencies.
According to him, items recovered include four AK-47 and 485 live ammunitions, 28 magazines, Dane guns, bows and arrows, axes and rocket propeller battery, N3 million and 5.4 million CFA.

NAIRALAND, ( JAN 2013):
Four Boko Haram kingpins held for major bombings
Four key Boko Haram leaders are in custody for the bombings of the United Nations (UN) House, the Police Headqurters and St.Theresa’s Catholic Church in Madalla, Niger State.

One of the suspects, Mamman Nur, is still wanted in connection with the attack on the UN House. Two other suspected Boko Haram leaders (Bashir Madalla and Habeeb Umar Bama) died in the clash with the Joint Task Force (JTF).

According to records obtained from the State Security Service (SSS), those in custody are: Ali Sanda Umar Konduga( a.k.a Usman Al-Zawahiri), who was jailed for three years in December 2011; Ismail Kwaljima(a.ka. Abu Summaya); Babagana Mali (a.k.a Bulama); and Kabiru Sokoto.


DISCUSSION:

APPROXIMATELY 20 COMMANDERS ARE IN THE FIELD. IF EACH HAS A FORCE RANGING FROM 20 TO 100 FIGHTERS, THEN THE OVERALL ESTIMATE AT THE MAXIMUM FOR THE BOKO HARAM FORCE MAY WELL BE 2000; IN OTHER WORDS, A REINFORCED BATTALION OR BRIGADE.

HOWEVER, MUCH LOWER ESTIMATES HAVE BEEN GIVEN:

IDSA INDIA: (DATED REPORT MARCH, 2012)
"Boko Haram is believed to consist of 300 fighters with a network of supporters. Currently, the radical group is more violent than ever, putting greater pressure on Nigeria’s security forces to deal decisively with the group and prevent further attacks"

AL JAZEERA RECENTLY FILED THIS STUDY ON THE BOKO HARAM LINES OF COMMUNICATION: (SEPT 08, 2013)
"The recent disclosure by Nigeria’s Minister of Interior, Abba Moro, that there are over 1,499 irregular (illegal) and 84 regular (legal) officially identified entry routes into Nigeria, confirms the very porous state of these borders which permits illicit transnational arms trafficking. In Adamawa State, there are about 25 illegal routes into Nigeria from neighbouring countries. Terrorists and smugglers take advantage of this leakage to smuggle small arms and light weapons (SALWs) into Nigeria. As a result, over 70 percent of about 8 million illegal weapons in West Africa was reported to be in Nigeria."

IN SPITE OF NUMEROUS REPORTS OF AFFILIATIONS WITH EXTRA-NIGERIAN TERROR ORGANIZATIONS, THE LINES OF COMMUNICATION DO NOT APPEAR WELL DEFINED AND THE FIGHTERS ARE DEPENDENT ON VILLAGE RAIDS FOR RESUPPLY. THERE IS NO TELLING HOW LONG THEIR AMMUNITION SUPPLY WILL HOLD OUT AND FREQUENT RAIDS TO POLICE HQ AND MILITARY INSTALLATIONS ARE USED TO AUGMENT WHATEVER WEAPONRY THE UNITS USE.

NIGERIA: PRIESTS, NUN GO FREE

TO: FIELD FROM: COC SUBJ: KIDNAPPED TRIO ALIVE AND WELL

FOLLOWING REPORTS ISSUED BY VARIOUS NEWS AGENCIES TODFAY:

NY TIMES:

DAKAR, Senegal — Two Italian priests and a Canadian nun, kidnapped for nearly two months near Cameroon’s border with Nigeria in a region rife with Boko Haram militants, were freed, Cameroon’s communications minister said on Sunday.
The minister would not discuss the terms under which the three were released. But past kidnappings of Europeans by Boko Haram in northern Cameroon have involved the release of prisoners, along with payments of cash. The three were flown to Cameroon’s capital, Yaoundé.
The two priests — Giampaolo Marta and Gianantonio Allegri — and the nun — Gilberte Bussière — were abducted early on the morning of April 5 from their mission in northern Cameroon. That area is used as a rear base by Boko Haram, which is waging a bloody terrorist campaign against villagers across the border in northern Nigeria.

 


The area is lightly policed, and the militants have carried out four kidnappings of foreigners there in the past 18 months, with the latest being the seizure of 10 Chinese road workers from their camp two weeks ago. The Nigerians have accused Cameroonian officials of not taking the Boko Haram threat seriously enough, and in the past week the Cameroon government has confirmed that it has sent an undisclosed number of troops to the area.
The priests freed had worked in the region for many years. Cameroonian officials met them at the regional capital, Maroua, early Sunday and flew them to Yaoundé, said the communications minister, Issa Tchiroma Bakary.

BOKO HARAM AMNESTY


TO: FRONT FROM: CMD SUBJ: DETAILS OF THE OFFER


VARIOUS STORIES ARE COMING OUT TONIGHT ABOUT NIGERIA FEDGOV  STAND ON GRANTING ACROSS THE BOARD PROPOSAL TO OUTLAW BOKO HARAM:

TRIBUNE NG REPORTS: (JUNE 01)

"Presidency appears to have distanced itself from the declaration made on Thursday by the Minister of Youths Development, Mr Boni Haruna. "

 Boni-Haruna.jpg - Boni-Haruna.jpg


HARUNA:
“Let me use this opportunity on behalf of the Federal Government to call on the members of the Boko Haram sect to embrace the government’s gesture and key into the amnesty programme,”

DR ABATI:
“If you read the speech line by line, you will see that it contains the very message that the president wanted to put across and in that speech, if you look at it, I don’t think the president used ‘amnesty’.

REFER TO ANOTHER ARTICLE IN THE TRIB: (JUNE 01)

ALHAJI IBRAHIM (AREWA CONSULTATIVE FORUM):
“ACF appeals to the Boko Haram members to accept and embrace the amnesty proposal of the Federal Government, and stop the wanton destruction of lives and property of innocent people,”

STORY CONTINUES IN DAILY POST NG: (MAY 30) BY WALE ODUNSI:

 Nigerian incumbent President Jonathan arrives to vote in Otuoke, Nigeria

"President Goodluck Jonathan has offered an amnesty deal to members of the deadly Boko Haram sect."
"The amnesty option indicates that the President has rejected the sect’s proposal to swap the over 200 abducted Chibok schoolgirls with its detained members."

PRESIDENT JONATHAN:
 Giving a hint on the amnesty deal; “For our citizens who have joined hands with Al Qaeda and international terrorists in the misguided belief that violence can possibly solve their problems, our doors remain open for dialogue and reconciliation, if they renounce terrorism and embrace peace.


THIS FROM THE NIGERIAN BULLETIN: (MAY 30):

 "President in the democracy address explained that despite Federal Government's disposition for possible reconciliation with any terrorist group, it would be on the condition that they are prepared to lay down arms."


"AMNESTY" CLARIFICATION:
 "An amnesty may be extended when the authority decides that bringing citizens into compliance with a law is more important than punishing them for past offenses."

REPORTED IN LEADERSHIP NG (MAY 31):

ADAMU MUAZU ( PEOPLES DEMOCRATIC PARTY):
National Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Adamu Muazu, has urged members of the Boko-Haram sect to embrace the amnesty extended to them by the federal government by dropping their arms and join hands with all Nigerians to build a better country.
(REPORTED BY STANLEY NKWOCHA)

STILL NO REAL POSITION BY THE ADMINISTRATION ON THE SO-CALLED  "AMNESTY" RUMOR.
