The Nigerian Army has raised an alarm on the activities of non-governmental organisations who are accused of offering assistance to Boko Haram terrorists.
Col. Sagir Musa, army director of public relations, said in a statement that it has credible intelligence indicating that the war against Boko Haram terrorists is being sabotaged by some stakeholders operating in the North East.
“This unfortunate development came to the fore with the arrest of a high profile Boko Haram Terrorist Commander one Mohammed Modu, – (an Amir in the Abubakar Shekau’s faction) by troops of 251Task Force Battalion Operation LAFIYA DOLE on Sunday the 26 of May 2019.
“Preliminary investigations conducted so far, have revealed that the Abubakar Shekau’s faction of Boko Haram has been receiving so called “humanitarian support” of food and drugs supplies from some Non-Governmental Organisations operating in the North East Theatre,” the statement said.
Col. Musa warned the suspected agencies to “desist from compromising Nigeria’s national security and war efforts against terrorism and operate in accordance with the extant rules and regulations guiding the operations of humanitarian aid workers.”
He also warned that the Nigerian Army would no longer tolerate such acts of sabotage inimical to the fight against terrorism by any organisation or agency, and will not hesitate to sanction any such recalcitrant organization as appropriate.
