EXCLUSIVE: Secret Intelligence Report links ex-Governor Sheriff, Chad President to Boko Haram sponsorship

New facts showing stronger links between former governor of Borno state, Ali Modu Sheriff, and the Boko Haram sect have emerged, further fuelling suggestions the ex-governor is a major financier of the terrorist sect.

Intelligence insights obtained by PREMIUM TIMES in Maiduguri, Damaturu, and Abuja show dated communications between field officers and the velvet ranks of Nigeria’s military chronicling Mr. Sheriff’s involvement in promoting the growth of the sect.

The communications painted a picture of what appears to be a powerful regional support structure involving the Chadian president, Nigerian officials and Niger Republic, and spearheaded by Mr. Sheriff whom the intelligence presents as a powerful figure within this circle.

Strong evidence indicates that the Nigerian government received actionable intelligence about Mr. Sheriff’s links to Boko Haram as far back as 2011 but has, curiously, ignored all warnings and nudges to act to stop the Boko Haram call him in for interrogation.

Mr. Sheriff has long been suspected of masterminding the Boko Haram sect, but the documents sighted by this newspaper offers deeper understanding into how Mr. Sheriff allegedly finances the deadly sect and his probable motivations.

When Sheriff visits Abeche

Nourished by deep and impeccable sources from members of the Chadian Army, Nigerian intelligence experts had arrived at fairly certain conclusions that Mr. Sheriff was actively involved in the recruitment, training and deployment of Boko Haram members.

“…members of Boko Haram sect are sometimes kept in Abeche region in Chad and trained before being dispersed. This happens usually when Mr. Sheriff visits Abeche,” a 2011 intelligence memo from field officers in N’djamena,the capital of Chad, read.

When Mr. Sheriff visits Abeche for these activities, he lodges in Chadian Presidential Guest House in Abeche, and is provided security by the Chadian government, the intelligence communications claim.

Mr. Sheriff is a close friend of the Chadian president, Idris Deby.

In 2011, during the Chadian presidential elections, Mr. Sheriff reportedly supported the Chadian president with 35 vehicles, for security, and is believed to have significantly bankrolled Mr. Deby’s re-election.

Nigerian defence and intelligence community members typically describe Mr. Sheriff as a gun runner in their many communications, and they often speak in conviction that his weapons find their way into Nigeria through Niger Republic into Yobe state. Yobe is Boko Haram’s stronghold and has suffered heavy casualties in magnitudes only second to Borno.

Money, Politics and Power

Back in August 2011, intelligence officials were characterising Mr. Sheriff’s motivations for sponsoring Boko Haram as similar to a certain “3rd generation South South governor,” with the aim of covering up financial irregularities he might have committed as governor of Borno state, as well as propagate a stay-put in office strategy by suppressing the opposition.

The officials suggest that Mr. Sheriff did not create the sect but was actively using the “monster” and could be sponsoring the sect as a way of protecting himself from the sect members who were “calling for his head” at the time.

“One way of reclaiming the lost loyalty of the sect therefore, was sponsorship of their cause,” intelligence officials were telling their principals.

Mr. Sheriff was not reachable for his comments. A former commissioner under his administration as governor of Borno state who also speaks for him, Inuwa Bwala, told PREMIUM TIMES Mr. Sheriff was outside the country and could not respond to enquiries.

Both the Nigerian defence headquarters and the Nigerian government also declined to comment on this intelligence.

Phone calls were not answered, and text messages were not replied to.

This is not the first time that Mr. Sheriff will be accused of links to the terrorist group, Boko Haram. He denies any links.

An April 2, 2012 report by a Cameroonian daily, L’Oriel du Sahel, said the former governor, now a member of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was arrested in 2012 upon entering Cameroon from Chad on his way to meeting the governor of that country’s northern region.

The report said Cameroonian police authorities questioned Mr. Sheriff for hours and only released him later following pressure from senior government officials in that country.

An Ambassador Usman Galtimari Panel, set up by President Goodluck Jonathan to investigate the genesis of the insurgency in the North East, had also blamed Mr. Sheriff for the growth of Boko Haram in a report.

Chadian President Connection

An Australian negotiator, Stephen Davis, recently named Mr. Sheriff, alongside former Nigerian Army Chief, Azubuike Ihejirika, as sponsors of the Boko Haram sect, quoting the sect’s leadership.

Nigeria’s intelligence authorities have been equivocal on the role of Mr. Ihejirika in promoting the deadly sect whose bloody campaign have killed up to 5000 Nigerians and left many homeless, broken and internally displaced, but they have lately spoken of the Chadian president, Mr. Deby, as a new dimension to the Boko Haram sponsorship dynamics.

In 2011, a strong Boko Haram army was also beneficial to the Chadian president, as it provided a “ready army and possible refuge” for a president that was facing growing distrust from his legitimate army, Nigerian intelligence officials claimed.

The Chadian president’s support for the sect was made majorly through his friendship with Mr. Sheriff and at the expense of his country’s relationship with Nigeria, the report said.

Transformed sect

Violence by the Boko Haram sect, which had only religious interest in the past, is traceable to the five days of clashes in July 2009, between the group and members of the security forces in Borno, Yobe, Bauchi, and Kano states that left more than 800 people dead, including at least 30 police officers.

The police summarily executed the captured Boko Haram leader, Mohammed Yusuf, along with several dozen of his followers in front of the police headquarters in Maiduguri. Dozens of its members were also arrested.

Boko Haram frequently said its attacks on the government, especially the police, are in revenge for these killings and an attempt to set free members incarcerated by the police.

Recently, the ideology behind Boko Haram attacks got more confusing with increasing attacks on schools, media houses and almost any soft target with wide media reach. The group has gotten bolder by the day and has shown interest in capturing and occupying cities it calls its Caliphates.

The sect has overrun towns and villages, including Mubi, Michika, Bazza, Gulak, Gwoza, Bama, Gamboru and Ngala in Adamawa and Borno states. Ngala is the home place Mr. Sheriff.

    This extensive news report on the involvement of Mr Modu Sheriff in the activities of the deadly Boko Haram is enough evidence to have him docked. It therefore beats a rational mind why President Goodluck Jonathan should allow himself to be photographed with such a character. One can’t help but ask in wonderment if the Nigerian President is not privy to this intelligence report? The money meant for the people of Borno State was stolen by Mr Modu Sheriff to finance a politician in Chad. How despicable can one be?

    • Mohstone

      They are birds of same feather !!!

  • Andy

    I think it is now too late, please. Modu Sherriff has heard all the anti-Boko Haram plans.
    He was seated right there and he was all ears as President Jonathan discussed the plans.
    It is safer to assume that Boko Haram by now knows all that what was discussed in Chad.
    In my view, this is how President Goodluck Jonathan’s incompetence endangers Nigeria.

The Nigerian Army received consignment of amunitions only for them to be ambushed by BH and they ran for their lives and left the arms with BH. Now GEJ is discussing everything with the lead sponsor of BH, so what do you think will happen next ???

  • Dankasa

    What about Cameroonian President who was the first President to have a secret meeting with GEJ just some days after his swearing in to office? Biya did the same Jona is doing to Northern to Northern Nigeria now and we all believe he is a contractor in this game, but time shall tell. What about Ihejireke? he is now cleared because he is Igbo ko? All these will not work ooo! Jona don’t want lose their support in 2015 ko? The two evil guys should be investigate and come out with the same secret report instead of this cooked story which only came up when pressure is mounted on Jona on why he visit Chard wit SAS.

    Nigeria, Chad and Niger form the Axis of Evil in this Boko Haram insurgency. Dumbo took Sheriff along because both men and their foreign counterparts obviously have political stakes accruing to them if the terrorists continued with their mayhem: Dumbo, so he would point his fingers at Northerners who he claimed want to make Nigeria ungovernable for him; Deby because he need a “read army” at his beck-n-call for his election purposes and the Nigerien President is obviously a “facilitator” for financial gains. No wonder Boko Haram drive around in Toyoto Hilux convoys untraceable thru Nigerian Customs records. No wonder the political will to stop the insurgency has been lacking. The PDP clearly planted Sheriff in the APC so

      “I can’t believe it and I still don’t believe it. There must be something wrong somewhere. Because it stands against all logic and commonsense.
      “Ihejirika is a Christian, he is an Igbo man. He is a beneficiary of Jonathan’s government in terms of appointment.
      “The Igbo Christians and their churches, especially the Catholic churches, were initially the first victims of Boko Haram at the beginning.

      “Even up till now, the Igbos still form the largest percentage of casualties, especially when you consider the bomb blasts at luxurious bus parks, most of them heading to the East.
      “So, I don’t see how a very high official of state, appointed by Jonathan’s government to protect the country against Boko Haram will now instigate Boko Haram against his country, against Christians, against his fellow Igbos and against his culture and everything he stands for.

      “I don’t think it is possible. So, there must be a mistake somewhere.
      “Unless I have very concrete, irrefutable proof, honestly I still believe that Ihejirika possibly had nothing to do with Boko Haram’s activities.”
      Permit me to add that, there is no where in the World where Terrorists freely mention their Sponsor’s name, so Whatever Steven Davis said makes no meaning.
      Even petty thieves and ‘Ransom Kidnappers’ cant reveal such sensitive information to anybody let alone a foreign Journalist or peacemaker. Whatever. An Asian friend told me that its only gullible that can believe Steven Davis tales–Pro Sagay

      lol man u never learn you are always basing your thoughts on sentiments, lies, deception and smear tactics. I am an advocate for flushing out boko haram and no guise of party affiliation should stop them from been prosecuted. If you are called to the house commitee to testify before oath, do you have proof and evidence that sheriff was planted by pdp at apc? or are you saying this out of your own head? do you even know the political history of sheriff and how he persecuted pdp apologists in borno state. One fact still remains. he was part of the formation of apc. apc according to ikimi and a fact not disputed by tinubu in his reply to ikimi was that ikim and sheriff at ikimi’s residence formed the platform for apc. One fact nobody is pointing out was when metuh accused apc of harbouring terrorists, lie lie mohammed disputed that fact and gave apc a clean bill of health. so in the space of 2 months what changed with sheriff. did sheriff become a terrorist 2 months ago? or as reported by this article he was a part of this terrorist organization for years now when he was a part of apc and anpp.

    We know Boko Haram is well financed and connected. Ak47 is not cheap. Feeding thousands of fighters daily is not cheap. Hundreds of Hilux are not cheap. How are the weapons and vehicles getting to them in the forest? We also know Nigerian government is dysfunctional and the military is weak and highly compromised. So whether Sheriff is financing them or not, he’s not the only one. Corruption and dysfunctional government of Nigeria headed by a drunkard from Otuoke is never going to unravel it. Time to flush out the politicians and the pot belly generals.

        Why then should the APC “discover Sheriff” while the PDP-led Govt. pockets N1trn annually to find out who’s behind the terrorists? Well, the answer has come from God in Heaven via Davis… all this regional meetings are “damage control” and strategizing on how to cover their tracks. The Three Musketeers are now known… their thugs are Sheriff, Ihejirika and an obscure CBN thug.

          • Tonnero

            You are not making any sense. The question is whether Sheriff is involved or not. The party he belongs to is a secondary issue. It is the job of the FGN to arrest and prosecute him if he is involved whether he is ANPP, APC or PDP. The fact that they have refused to do so raises serious questions. This is very simple and you simply confuse yourself with less relevant details of his party affiliations.

      • Adoki

        Fortunately, I don’t come here to troll and tripe. I come here to search, make up my own mind and try to help those with the eyes to recognise the light when they see it.
        (1) A news report that began with the phrase “New FACTS showing stronger links…” cannot validly contain another phrase like “further fuelling SUGGESTIONS the…” precisely in the same paragraph.
        (2) Then this: “members of Boko Haram sect are sometimes kept in Abeche region in Chad and trained before being dispersed. This happens usually WHEN MR. SHERIFF VISITS ABECHE”. I am asking why Sheriff has to be physically present in that place for BH insurgents to be trained and deployed.
        (3) “intelligence officials were characterising Mr. Sheriff’s motivations for sponsoring Boko Haram… with the aim of covering up financial irregularities he might have committed as governor of Borno state”. Please explain this to me. And what does “propagate a stay-put in office strategy” mean?
        (4) “The officials suggest that Mr. Sheriff did not create the sect but was actively using the ‘monster’ and could be sponsoring the sect as a way of protecting himself from the sect members who were ‘calling for his head’ at the time”. Now, the first part of this quote clearly contradicts the conclusions of the Usman Galtimari Pane, which even premium times is relying on for validity. The second part just does not make any sense to me – how do you sponsor/arm your sworn enemy in order to protect yourself from the same sworn enemy?
        (5) “In 2011, a strong Boko Haram army was also beneficial to the Chadian president, as it provided a ‘ready army and possible refuge’ for a president that was facing growing distrust from his legitimate army”. So the Chadian President used Boko Haram precisely in 2001 to do what exactly? Is it Boko Haram (in the bush) that is now protecting the Chadian president from his own army (in the presidential palace, the airport, the army formations etc)?

        • Tonnero

          The point you share with Wahala is that there is enough information to have unleashed a powerful, multi-agency investigation of the governor by the Nigerian government. He should be in holding while this investigation is going on. This is one of the most serious assaults on the sovereignty of the country and deserves to be treated with the utmost urgency. Instead, what do you see? Not only is the guy walking around freely, he has also joined the PDP and is, perhaps, hobnobbing with the President. Tell me you do not find that incomprehensible.

          • Adoki

            If we had met each other earlier on this forum, you would probably have noticed that as far back as more than three years ago, even before BH became the institution that it is today, I had severally referred to the role that Sheriff played in the emergence of the organisation. Hardly anyone was talking about it then. That was when it was politically not very lucrative to do so. Fortunately for me, I do not have any dog in this PDPAPCPDPAPC fight. I have other theories, including the one that some military generals do dot want this thing to come to an end because it has become unbelievably lucrative for them. But I am saying that all these theories and conjectures would come to naught if we have to rely on watery and clearly amateurish ‘intelligence reports’ like the one above for justice. Maybe that is why someone like Ali Ndume is still walking free today. And I do not think he is even in the ruling party (or maybe he does).

        The 2009 Boko Haram uprising was a conflict between Boko Haram, a militant Islamist group and Nigerian security forces. Jonathan was not president then–so could he have been sponsoring them—————-Violence across several states in northeastern Nigeria left over 1,000 dead, with around 700 killed in the city of Maiduguri alone, according to one military official.A government inquiry later found that, while long-standing tensions existed between Boko Haram and the Nigerian Security forces, the immediate cause of the violence stemmed from an incident in which a group of the sect’s members were stopped by police in the city of Maiduguri as they were on the way to the cemetery to bury a comrade. The officers, part of a special operation aimed at stamping out violence and rampant crime in Borno State, demanded that the young men comply with a law requiring motorcycle passengers to wear helmets. They refused and, in the confrontation that followed, several were shot and wounded by police.

    Mala Kachalla was elected as governor of Borno State in April 1999, running for the All People’s Party (APP), which was renamed All Nigeria People’s Party (ANPP) due to a factional split. His election was financed by Ali Modu Sheriff, who became Senator for Borno Central.

    In August 2000, Borno State decided to adopt Sharia law. Mala Kachalla reassured Christians by emphasising that Sharia, which includes punishments like amputation and flogging, would only apply to Muslims.[3] In February 2001, he established a Sharia Implementation Committee, which investigated the practical steps involved in introducingSharia law in the state.[4] After receiving the report, Mala Kachalla said the Sharia legal system would come into force in June 2001. Applying only to Muslims, the laws would ban gambling, alcohol and prostitution, among other vices.[5]

    In February 2002, riots broke out in Lagos between Hausa and Yoruba groups, during which houses were destroyed and over 100 people died, including women and children. Mala Kachalla met with the Lagos State governor Bola Tinubu and broadcast appeals to both sides to end the violence

    In September 2002 Mala Kachalla said there were conflicting border claims in the Lake Chad area, and that Nigeria was losing control of some island villages there. He said there was no clear cut demarcation between Borno, Chad and Cameroon, and that the region was plagued by armed rebels and trafficking in illicit arms and children.[7]

    In November 2001 police fired at workers in Maiduguri protesting against the withholding of their wages, a breach of a previous pay agreement. The Borno State Police Commissioner imposed a state of emergency.[8] According to the Nigeria Labour Congress President in Borno State, when Mala Kachalla left office leave grant had not been paid for two years, health and hotel workers were on strike, shoe factory workers could not get their terminal benefits and even pensioners had outstanding arrears Before the April 2003 elections, it became clear that Ali Modu Sheriff would be the ANPP candidate for governor rather than Kachalla.[10] Kachalla left the ANPP and joined the Alliance for Democracy (AD). He was defeated by Ali Modu Sheriff.[11] In February 2006, Kachalla changed parties again, joining the People’s Democratic Party

    Kachalla who first introduced Sjaria law in Borno state-long before Sheriff was elected died at his home in Maiduguri on 18 April 2007, after a brief illness. He was 66 years old.[1]

    Sometimes Jonathan behalves like someone under a spell of marabout. Can you imagine a President of Chad or Niger making life unbearable for OBJ.? Jonathan is a weakling and too afraid of loosing election as a result of which he acts disorderly. Even diehard supporters constantly get confused and destabilized by inconsistent actions of the President. A commander in chief must not waiver. He stands firm, decisive and acts like organized person. Obama takes bold and courageous decision about terrorism and gets people behind him. Jonathan may be a right person at a wrong time.

      Twelve out of Nigeria’s thirty-six states have Sunni Islam as the dominant religion. In 1999, those states chose to have Sharia courts as well as Customary courts.] A Sharia court may treat blasphemy as deserving of several punishments up to, and including, execution. In many predominantly Muslim states, conversion from Islam to another religion is illegal and often a capital offence.

      In 2002, Isioma Daniel wrote an article seen as insulting to Muhammad, leading to riots (see below).

      On 21 March 2007, a mob of Muslim students and neighbourhood extremists beat to death Christianah Oluwatoyin Oluwasesin, a mother of two and a teacher at Government Secondary School of Gandu in the city of Gombe. A student complained that Oluwasesin, a Christian, had touched a bag which allegedly contained a Quran, and had thereby defiled the Quran

      In 2014 a Nigerian man, Mubarak Bala was forcibly committed to a psychiatric institution in Kano for eighteen days, where he was forcibly drugged after stating that he was an atheist. The International Humanist and Ethical Union took up the case, stating that Bala’s human rights were violated.

    Religious conflict in Nigeria goes as far back as 1953, when a religious riot occurred in the northern city of Kano. The 1980s saw an upsurge in violence due to death of Mohammed Marwa (“Maitatsine”) (see below). In the same decade the erstwhile military ruler of Nigeria, General Ibrahim Babangida enrolled Nigeria in the Organisation of the Islamic Conference. This was a move which aggravated religious tensions in the country, particularly among the Christian community–It will therefore be wrong for some APC vultures to balme Boko haram on Jonathan Sheriff ati Ihejirika-only an unthinking He goat will, launch self into such rubbish-
    Following the return of democracy to Nigeria in 1999, Sharia was instituted as a main body of civil and criminal law in 9 Muslim-majority and in some parts of 3 Muslim-plurality states, when then-Zamfara State governor Ahmad Rufai Sani[—————began the push for the institution of Sharia at the state level of government. As of 2012, the 9 states have instituted Sharia (see below). This was followed by controversy as to the would-be legal status of the non-Muslims in the Sharia system. A spate of Muslim-Christian riots soon emerged.

    • Olutola

      It is worldwide journalism ethics to protect their sources so far they have not used illegal means to obtain such and have not induced such sources. Most countries also protect whistle blowers including America as long as what was revealed is not threatening national security. The summary of what is coming out gradually is what majority of Nigerians have always suspected; Dr Jonathan is involved in the boko-haram thing:
      1. Henry Okar confessions
      2. Azazi insistence that Boko is PDP issue
      3. The death of Gen Shuwa when he was supposed to be guarded by soldiers plus check-point close to his house
      4. Sightings of helicopters dropping supplies at Sambisa forest when we have Air-force
      5. killing of 59 children in their sleep shortly after security was withdrawn
      6. If there are infiltrators, is it that difficult for DMI to fish out at least few of them?
      7. When Ihejirika removed some officers and put core loyalist of his including those who are not qualified at very strategic Army communications, ordinance and intelligence positions; those who are in the know cried out but were victimized.
      8. Who killed Azazi and why?
      9. Who is interested in Henry Okar continued incarceration in South-Africa over a crime he could have been extradited to Nigeria?
      10. Why do we deploy Army piece-meal for Boko-haram operations while we will deploy over 15,000 for election operations?
      11. Where is the first Shekau? and why was Col. Musa Sagir sent to TRADOC Minna for insisting Shekau was mortally wounded or probably dead.

      We can go on but it only points to the fact that someone right at the top is involved in all these. If not Dr Jonathan then he is caged inside Aso Rock. The Nigerian Army that I know will not be running to Cameroon and come back in rags! loose teritories without a fight; the same Army that prosecuted war in Liberia, Sierra-Leone, Liberated Mogadishu after shameful defeat of the US marines by the forces of Gen Farah Hadeed?

    Nigeria is not a country but a continent…and therefore needs an exigent break up, disintegration or De-amalgamation into its homogeneous component countries. Pure & Simple.

    Nigeria is the size and population of France, UK, Spain & Portugal put together. If the listed four countries were amalgamated like Nigeria, would there be peace? Would the Portuguese or Spanish accept the French or English as President? If your answer is NO, then it must be idiotic and futile to hope or assume that Nigeria will work. You do not run a continent with national policies or constitution. It will just not work.

    Nigeria has no business being a country. This is the honest truth. But the love and long throat for my Niger Delta resources no dey let una see road. The incongruous fault lines in Nigeria are visible to the blind. Britain committed its worst crime against humanity by amalgamating the North & South of present day Nigeria.

      Condemning the recent comment made by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, criticizing President Goodluck Jonathan’s approach on Boko Haram, a security consultant has blamed the former president for the development of the fundamentalist group.

    is an Islamic revolution; not an insurgency the Nigerian government mistakes it for.
    There are no easy options – Nigeria must fight its way out of Boko Haram’s ambush.
    President Jonathan fails as War Commander to rally Nigerians behind a defined cause.
    Whereas, no civil war in history was ever won without a nationally-defined rallying cause.

The truth is gradually coming to bare. President jonathan should come and tell Nigerians what he knows about all of this, because he, had a meeting with the chadian president and Ali Modu Sherif. Can Jonathan, the president of Nigeria, come out and tell us that he doesn’t know anything about the allegations against Jonathan and the Chadian President?

    SENATOR ALI MODU SHERIF (SAS) IS THE LEADER OF BOKO HARAM
    BUT HE IS ABOVE THE LAW IN NIGERIA
    1- During the 2003 election the boko haram leadership and
    followership voted for Ali Sherif massively.
    2- In 2005 even after the Kanamma and Gwazo incidence that
    indicted the Boko Haram sect, Ali Sherif arrogantly went ahead and
    appointed their member (Hon Buji Fai) as commissioner for
    religious affairs by way of financing their terrorism indirectly.
    3- All security reports that were addressed to the governor in those
    days by the Izalas and the Tarikas against the boko haram movement
    under top secrecy were being smuggled to the leadership of the
    boko haram by government officials. Thereby making the IZALAS &
    TARIKAS targets and vulnerable for attacks by the boko haram.
    4- Such double-standard of the Ali Sherif administration coerced the
    people of Borno to stop writing or reporting anything against the
    boko haram.
    5- Sheriff ordered the killing of the leader of the Boko Haram (Mohd
    Yusuf) who was arrested alive and could have otherwise reveal
    relavant informations as to who their sponsors were.
    6- High profile members like Baba Fugu Mohammed and Hon Buji
    fai were all killed with the directive of Sherif to avoid further
    investigation that will in fact indict him!
    7- Almost all of Sherif’s political thugs- the ‘ecomogs’ participated in
    the war siding with Boko Haram eg Babale otherwise known as
    Baleriya and his men participated and is a general knowledge. But
    was allowed to come and help his party in the 2011 general
    election.
    8- After the 2009 war, there were not the slightest of insecurity in
    Borno state, people were living peacefully.
    9- But Sherif re-created the insurgence single-handedly.
    10- Sometime in 2010, we woke up in the morning and witnessed
    Boko Haram flags everywhere in the city of Maiduguri, including
    police stations and court premises.
    11- Later some youth- the ECOMOGS (political thugs) were arrested
    with the flags and they confessed that it was the SSA to Sherif on
    media – Shehu Liberty that gave them the flags to mount them at
    strategic locations like the police stations and court premises.
    12- Shehu Liberty was arrested by the police, but Sheriff managed to
    extenuated him.
    13- Note that those flags were exactly the same with the ones used
    by the original boko haram during the 2009 war.
    14- However, in the same year, both the Borno State Chairman and
    State Secretary of the ANPP were arrested with the same kind of
    riffles used by the boko haram fighters during the 2009 war.
    15- As usual Sherif managed to extenuated them.
    16- In 2012, Gen Monguno’s panel arrested all the ecomogs in
    Borno state, and they confessed that Sherif ordered them to kill
    soldiers, police, customs immigrations and prison service by way of
    posing as boko haram.
    17- And that anyone who kill a soldier and snatched a gun is paid
    very large amount of money and lesser amount if he could’nt snatch
    a the gun. And is given lesser proportion if police is killed and
    lesser to prison service and the arithmetic goes down.
    18- Due the interest of the federal government in the terrorism, Gen
    Monguno lost his seat as the Director of defence intelligence and
    Sherif was extenuated.
    19- May be that’s why the federal government adopted all Sherif’s
    enemies in the Borno State PDP as it own enemy and blindly wich-
    hunting Sherif’s arch enemies such as Ali Ndume and Ahmed
    Zannah and even denied them lucrative appointments such as
    ministerial and heads of parastatals.
    20- Why is it that the federal Govt has to console Ali Sheriff of ANPP
    before offering appointments to any of the Borno State PDP
    members?
    21- Are they in the same cult organizations? If so, is their cultism
    stronger than the party? If it is a common friendship, hasn’t he
    (President Jonathan) any friend in the PDP? If yes why?
    22- As the truth is always unique and irrepressible! The emergence
    of the youth volunteer group, popularly known as the civilian JTF,
    who are not politicians but original citizens of Borno revealed that
    almost all the Boko Haram arrested and tortured use to confess that Ali sheriff is their sole sponsor

    It is indeed
    a great pity that Nigeria is at war – against itself.

    The PDP
    Jonathan-led federal government is formenting trouble
    and causing tension in the geo-political zones of the country to divert
    attention from its failure in government.

    In the North,
    the PDP Jonathan-led federal government allowed the problem of boko-haram to
    fester and aggravate into a war with the calculation that the North will be
    destabilized and discouraged from seeking the Presidency in 2015. But alas, in
    spite of the timely warning of Obasanjo and
    well-meaning members of the society, the federal government turned deaf
    ears and neglected its primary duty of providing adequate security for
    Nigerians against terror and securing the country’s territorial borders. Up
    till today for 5 months now, the
    kidnapped over 200 school-girls are still in boko haram captivity!!! And we
    have a President doing what? Busy erecting “Bring back Jonathan” billboards in
    mockery of the wordwide “Bring our girls back” campaign. This same President
    militarized the recent gubernatorial elections in Ekiti and Osun states. In
    saner climes, this is enough to get the President impeached. But in Nigeria, Messrs.
    David Mark and Tambuwaal and their colleagues are marking the register to
    collect their billion Naira largesse and prepare for the next election that
    will guarantee future pay-days. The people of Nigeria are now left to take
    their fate in in their own hands by securing their votes like the gallant people
    of Osun state.

    Our
    organization was in the field to monitor the elections of Ekiti and Osun
    states. We witnessed the rigging of election in Ekiti state through intimidating
    militarization of the processes by the
    Commander-in-Chief who could not rescue Chibok girls from captivity or defend
    the people of Borno, Adamawa, Yobe, Kano, Nassarawa, Benue and Plateau states
    and Abuja from book-haram attacks.

    In Osun
    state, the soldiers were heavily armed and equipped with masks increasing their
    efforts to intimidate the people more than they did in Ekiti. They shot into
    the air and arrested leaders and members of the opposition APC in their bid to
    rig the elections in polling and collation centres. But the electorate in Osun
    state resisted them and stood their grounds to ensure that their votes were not
    stolen.

    Attempts by
    the two dubious INEC Returning officers in charge of Obokun AND Oshogbo Local
    governments who allowed themselves to be used by PDP in attempting to change
    the figures and use the already prepared and fake results of the PDP in their
    possession were resisted by vigilant electorate. All attempts by the PDP to
    cause the INEC to announce already prepared fake results like their mother NPN
    did in Oyo state 1983 gubernatorial election failed in Osun state! We warn the
    judiciary to emulate INEC in Osun state by refusing to be used to subvert the
    will of the people freely exhibited through the ballot box. Failure to do that
    will invite bloody revolution worse than the 1983 riots in Oyo state after the
    dubious judgment on the gubernatorial election which ushered in military rule.

    With this
    scenario, it is obvious that the PDPJonathan is desperate to rig the 2015
    elections by all means. The people of Nigeria who are yearning for a change
    must be prepared to resist them like the people of Osun did.

    In this
    wise, we reiterate our wise counsel to the opposition APC that candidates who
    can inspire hope in the people of Nigeria who have grassroot support and the
    composite strength of character must be fielded for elections. Nigeria is at
    war against boko haram and forces of corruption and oppression of the people.
    Only a candidate who is tested and can Chiefly-command well the armed forces
    against boko haram and confront headlong the hydra headed monsters of
    corruption, capital flight, indiscipline, unemployment, irregular power supply,
    hunger, poverty, moribund education and health systems sending many Nigerians
    to their premature deaths on a daily basis must be enthroned. Such a candidate,
    to succeed, must be supported on a joint ticket by a person of proven
    intergrity and probity, a man of God, a successful family man at the peak of
    his profession, internationally-recognised law officer and transparent honesty
    who has served meritoriously with commendation in government, academic and
    business organizations both within and outside Nigeria including the United
    Nations. Welcome General Buhari and Professor Osinbajo.

    We guarantee
    that this pair will deliver for APC and lead Nigeria to the promised land.

    Condemning the recent comment made by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, criticizing President Goodluck Jonathan’s approach on Boko Haram, a security consultant has blamed the former president for the development of the fundamentalist group.Max Gbanite, a strategic security consultant, claimed that allowing the implementation of Sharia Law in some parts of the north during the Mr Obasanjo regime, led to the development of Islamic sect that are now staging insurgency against the Nigerian government.
    The security expert made the allegation on Channels Television’s breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily, where he alleged that “he (Obasanjo) allowed Sharia to take effect because of an alleged unholy alliance between the then Governor of Zamfara state, because they did not want the then National Security Adviser (NSA) to have a role in government, therefore he called a political Sharia.”

    The iconic legal expert Gani Fawehinmi may be dead but that doesn’t mean his voice is not going to be heard any longer.

    We knew if he was still alive, he would have said a lot of things about this Boko Haram’s menace but his son, Muhammed Fawehinmi is speaking out.

    You can recall that the former president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo had promised to wade into this Boko Haram issue this week.

    Well, Fawehinmi doesn’t seem to care about Obasanjo’s intervention because he is blaming hi, for being a part of the Boko Haram problem faced in the country today.

    He didn’t say this inside his room but he has come out live during Bimbo and Shola Connect, a live programme on LTV 8 today.

    He said that the former president had ignored a Russian military intelligence warning over the growth of some unknown fundamentalist that was building up in Sambisa Forest.

    This was revealed during his administration and because of his failure to pay heed to their report, Nigeria has fallen into the Boko trap.

    “what matters most as of now is the safety of the missing girls, the Jonathan led government can release the prisoners as requested by Boko haram just to get the girls and then adopt other military measures in fighting the sect.” He concluded.

    President Olusegun Obasanjo sees the crisis in Nigeria over Muslim sharia law as the work of enemies bent on bringing down his government.
    Obasanjo would prefer to resolve the issue politically rather than ask the supreme court to decide whether Nigeria’s federal states can adopt the Muslim penal code, spokesperson Doyin Okupe said in a statement.

    “The enemies of this administration who hide under the cloak of religious piety to try to destabilise it will fail collectively as it is not in the manifest destiny of this country that it should disintegrate,” he said.

    It was the presidency’s strongest statement since hundreds of people died last month in Muslim-Christian clashes over sharia in the northern city of Kaduna. The violence spread eastwards killing hundreds more.

    Obasanjo has described the crisis as the worst since a civil war over breakaway Biafra in the 1960s. Many Nigerians say it threatens the unity of Africa’s most populous nation.

    “Government has both the ability and capability to contain any negative activities and to act decisively against any person or groups of persons who may wish to, either by overt or covert acts, disrupt the peace of this nation or bring government to disrepute,” it said.——But President Jonathan has no right to defend his name and that of the innocent people the Fulanis in APC are labelling- as agents of boko haram abi

    THE CENTRAL BANK FINANCIER OF BOKO HARAM: WHO IS HE?

    “Stephen Davis [the Australian Boko Haram mediator] also mentions a Boko Haram financier
    within the Nigerian Central Bank. Independently we are able to give backing to that claim,
    even to the extent of naming the individual. In the process of our enquiries, we solicited
    the help of a foreign embassy whose government, we learnt, was actually on the same trail,
    thanks to its independent investigation into some money laundering that involved the Central Bank.”

    “That name, we confidently learnt, has also been passed on to President Jonathan.
    When he is ready to abandon his accommodating policy towards the implicated, even the criminalized,
    an attitude that owes so much to re-election desperation, when he moves from a passive
    ‘letting the law to take its course’ to galvanizing the law to take its course, we shall
    gladly supply that name. ”

        Without much honest journalism inside Nigeria, Boko Haram genocide was enabled to spread.
        Had Nigerian journalists been straight and honest people they would have called out
        Sanusi Lamido Sanusi right at the beginning, because several of the journalists in Nigeria
        had the archival records that Sanusi Lamido Sanusi was implicated and jailed in 1984
        (or thereabouts) by the Supreme Military Council over the beheading of an Igbo man –
        named Mr. Akaluka, a Christian, who was then resident in Kano.

    It will be the truth if PMB betrayed Tinubu which at least done publicly.

  • Joe igbokwe

    IYOHA JOHN IS STILL LIVING IN THE PAST. I HAVE FOLLOWED THE UGLY PDP POLITICIAN ON POINTBLANK BEFORE HIS TOTALLY IRREDEEMABLE AND USELESS PARTY WAS TROUNCED, DECIMATED, AND CRUSHED ON MARCH 28 2015. THIS MAN WAS SO DESPERATE THAT AT A TIME I THOUGHT HE WILL USE HIS BARE HANDS TO DELIVER VICTORY TO HIS CLUELESS JONATHAN BUT THE REST IS NOW HISTORY. IYOHA PLEASE DO NOT CELEBRATE YET. I HEAR THAT YOU PEOPLE ARE WARMING UP FOR 2019. PLEASE DO NOT WASTE YOUR PRECIOUS GIFT OF TIME ON NOTHING. APC WILL THROUGH COMMITTED , RESPONSIBLE AND RESPONSIVE GOVERNANCE KEEP YOUR PDP IN ABEYANCE FOR YEARS UNTIL YOU ARE WISE ENOUGH TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN egbe( Kite) and egbe( gun). IYOHA LISTEN ,APC WILL DISAPPOINT YOU 100 TIMES AND YOU WILL SHED TEARS FOR MANY YEARS TO COME. YOU THINK APC STRUGGLED FOR 16 YRS FOR NOTHING abi? NO WE STRUGGLED TO KEEP PDP BEHIND THE SCENE FOR MANY YEARS TO COME. MARK MY WORDS, IYOHA.

    • taewo

      Joe, I would have reacted the same way you did to what Iyoha said he wrote some months back. But if an election were to be held today, I won’t vote for Buhari but not for Jonathan either. We make mistake in life but we must be able to accept in order to be able to chart a different way.

      Joe, please attend to the writer’s concern. Has Buhari not betrayed Tinubu? Chief Bisi Akande was lying? Many of us, APC’s supporters and sympathizers are worried that you can imagine.

    • Iyoha John Darlington

      Mr Joe Igbokwe, I have no political axe to grind. I believe in justice and fair play and this informed my interest and desire to denounce the ongoing injustice being done to Tinubu. Often times, you reason anti-clockwise which find expression in unwarranted attacks. This is not the first time you are doing this. The other time I allowed your unwarranted outburst and invectives to pass without uttering a word and today you are repeating the same thing. In your reaction to my piece on Pointblank News, you dared me to come to Nigeria as if you own the country and I had no option then but to report your threat to life to the International Police in Milan. There will be no hiding place for you when the bubble finally bursts if you need reminding. I’m partly Nigerian and partly Italian, and no one intimidates me. You breath out threats to people as if you own Nigeria. Joe Igbokwe, it is very obvious that you are not civilized. I have read a good number of your attacks on people in popular national dailies which depicts you as none other than a misbegotten homo sapien from an extinct barbarian tribe.

      • FactsandFigures

        You do know that when you descend to his level, you loose the moral ground to castigate him. Regardless, I doff my hat to Nigerians who despite the threat to their lives came out to vote; to Nigerians though subjected to political intimidation carry on with their activism and all other Nigerians who fight for the enthronement of democracy in whatever form they could. Some of these Nigerians are not partly Germans, Americans, British etc. They have nothing and no one to protect them from a country where threats go unchecked, murders go unsolved, miscreants get away with all sorts of mayhem. I wish for the day when you do not have to be intimidated because you are “partly Italian”, when being Nigerian is enough for you to feel safe.

      Our dear old Joe Igbokwe firing from the hips like the Django of yore!!! Political activisim is one thing and political thuggery is another. Issuing treats to anybody especially a gentleman airing his opinion on politics in his own country is not only childish but should be unreservedly condemned by one and all. Your post above just showed you for what you really are, a political jobber and a THUG. I guess even the Asiwaju himself with be thoroughly ASHAMED of you if he gets to read your response to a perfectly truthful post. Focusing on the messenger instead of the message and making references to guns shows you a desperado who should be BARRED fortwith from participating in politics in any form or manner especially in a growing democracy like we have in Nigeria. Politicians like you are an ill-wind that blows nobody no good. YOU SHOULD BE FIRED, QED.

  • Proud Yoruba

    Look, Buhari lasted 20 months during his military rule, I don’t see how he will last that long this time around. Buhari is already a failure!

  • Sanmi Falae

    I too am fast losing confidence in Buhari’s presidency, because he seems to have surrendered it to his failed Northern political brethren. These are people who have ruled Nigeria and their people for donkey years but without much to show for it. It is a pity because, as usual, it is their people or ordinary Northerners that will be the worse for it. As people with the most challenges in Nigeria, Buhari needs the experience and expertise of Southerners to help the North. Secondly most Northern leaders are local champion politicians, with absolutely no influence with important foreign leaders – unlike their Southern counterparts. I don’t think Buhari has the self confidence or self esteem to operate outside his comfort zone i.e with far more intellectual Southern leaders. Maybe Yoruba leaders should just concentrate on our lot in the SW and let the rest get on with it. Especially when they assume what Mr Tinubu is trying to do for Nigeria is about the Yorubas or Mr Tinubu per se.

  • Joe igbokwe

    IYOHA YOU ARE BEING CLEVER BY HALF. I KNOW YOU VERY WELL AND WHAT YOU STAND FOR. YOU WERE NOT WRITING TO SUPPORT ASIWAJU BOLA AHMED TINUBU. YOU DO NOT HAVE THAT CHARACTER TO DO SO AND YOU CAN NEVER DO SO BECAUSE I KNOW YOU INSIDE OUT. YOU WROTE TO MOCK APC AND WISH APC CRASHES OUT SO THAT YOUR USELESS AND BRAINLESS PDP WILL RETURN IN 2019. IYOHA, PLEASE PERISH THE THOUGHT. APC WILL GROUND YOUR SHAMELESS PDP FOR 30 YEARS WITH UNPRECEDENTED HARDWORK AND BRUTAL EFFICIENCY. MARK MY WORD. NOW BACK TO WATERLY EFFUSIONS AND MOTORPARK POLITICS. I TOLD YOU TO COME HOME AND CONTRIBUTE IN REBUILDING NIGERIA FROM WHERE YOUR PDP LEFT IT. YOU MISUNDERSTOOD ME AND SAID YOU WENT TO INTERNATIONAL POLICE IN TURIN TO REPORT ME. NOW , TELL ME WHAT DO YOU DO IN ITALY? DRUG TRAFICKING? CHILD TRAFFICKING? 419 OR LETTER WRITING? CAPTURING YOUNG LADIES IN NIGERIA AND EXPORTING THEM TO ITALY FOR PROSTITUTION? MONEY LAUNDERING FOR YOUR PDP THIEVES ? IYOHA ,WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING? YOU HIDE THERE IN TURIN ITALY TO THROW STONES? NO YOU HAVE TO COME TO THE WAR FRONT. ONE MORE THING, IYOHA: BE STRONG ENOUGH WHEN THE REAL FIGHT COMES BECAUSE I DO NOT RUN AWAY FROM SCAMMERS LIKE YOU.

    • FactsandFigures

      Eh, we do not need any party to be in power for 30 years. It is a recipe for disaster. No matter how good APC will or think they will be, a change in guard every now and then is necessary. Absolute power corrupts…….absolutely.

    • Say the truth

      This is typical of Joe Igbokwe. I am not disappointed, the response is true to type. You have lived in Lagos long enough to become a proper alaye. The man confronted you with the truth and nothing but the truth but you will have none of it. All of you Tinubu’s boys put the man in this present mess. No doubt he will come out stronger being a good fighter but he must appreciate the fact that he has no monopoly of everything as you the praise singers will have him believe.

    • Adekunle Lateef

      This man Joe Igbokwe is insane. The writer is not talking about APC our party but the marginalization of our people. I have read his piece. It’s written in English not Igbo or Greek. He means well for Nigeria and Tinubu. Igbokwe leave this alone and stop fooling yourself, jare! I voted for Buhari but I regret it all now. Go back to igboland and leave us alone.

    • Remi okoya

      People like Igbokwe are nothing but praise singers. Tinubu should distance himself from him. He is a fairweather man. You called Mr Iyoha names. Why? Has he taken your wife or sister to Italy . this is how you spoil other people to climb. Olodo!

  • Abdullah Musa

    One thought politics was a collective affair.
    Betraying Tinubu, as is being alleged, means denying Tinubu the power to single – handedly decide National Assembly leadership.
    Were we a real democracy, we would have saluted ourselves for expanding choice.
    But we are swimming in the lake of speculation. Buhari has not come out to admit he was behind the NASS saga.
    So when it was said the party was behind Lawan and Femi, it was meant that the party was Tinubu? And would that have been helpful to democracy?

    • Proud Yoruba

      We voted for Buhaari knowing that Tinubu was his power broker, so democracy is fine with him, when Tinubu was not behind him, nobody voted for him. It is your northern elite crap people that we did not vote for, like Atiku, Saraki, Dogarat, Tabuwal, etc. trying to get a free ride that we don’t want.

      • Abdullah Musa

        Proud Yoruba.
        May you always remain so.
        But be informed that other tribes also have the right to be proud this and that.
        Problem is that you are always at the periphery of the pit of tribalism.
        At the slightest irritation you jump in.
        We acknowledge Tinubu ‘ s contribution, but it does not earn him the right to expect all to prostrate before the mention of his name.
        I believe that the person he proposed as Senate President has no drop of Yoruba blood in him.
        Tinubu cannot be more North – eastern than Buhari, who served as military Governor there, and whose wife hails from there.
        Tinubu could still mine other opportunities that a closeness to President gives him.
        Yoruba should have long term view of democracy.
