Nigerian army in Borno

An Army Colonel serving with Nigeria Army School of Infantry, Jaji, Kaduna State, has been reportedly kidnapped by unknown gunmen.

The Deputy Director, Army Public Relations, Usman Abdul, confirmed the kidnap on Sunday in a statement issued in Kaduna.

He said the colonel was abducted around Kamazo near NNPC junction, Kaduna, at about 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.

“The abductors dropped off his wife and left with him in his car and headed towards Abuja. They drove in a Mercedes Benz GK black colour with registration number Abuja, KUJ 154 TZ,” he said.

    Name of the Coloniel ?

    • Iskacountryman

      it cannot be released for security reasons…but look towards zaria and izalla…

      • amazing2012

        No it’s not for security reason but simply the Colonel is a Muslim kidnapped by Christians. If the colonel is a Christian his name would have been mention and associates the kidnap with Muslims !

        • Iskacountryman

          christians kidnap muslim colonel…who dash dem liver…

        • Otile

          If Christians touch even an irreligious Muslim, Buhari will unleash his sojajin Muslimi and a horrible jihad will follow. Sojajin Muslimi Buhari will also go after pregnant women and young girls, the rampage will be unmitigated disaster in the land.

          • amazing2012

            Cursed English save antichrist !
            Muslims has no army like CAN and its president who went South Africa to buy weapons for them.

          • Otile

            Say the truth, Muslims have Boko Haram who receive plenty of weapons from Al Queda, Al Shabab, ISIS. Hamas among other terror groups

          • amazing2012

            Cursed English slave antichrist:
            You see how your brain is small !
            Ok who give ISIS, Alqaida and Boko sophisticated weapons ? Who trained them ? Answer: Christians west !

          • Otile

            Saudi Arabia does. Pakistan does. Afghanistan does. Do you doubt it?

          • amazing2012

            Cursed English slave and antichrist those countries don’t make weapons, the Christians do and support them with the weapons to channel it to the created vengeance group.
            Pakistan was used in creating Alqaida for fighting USSR while SA was used to create ISIS.
            Christians has limited reasoning in term of research and finding truth ! Go and read daft !! Christians are the problem on earth !!!

          • Julius

            No, Christians are not the problem on earth but, your other points are correct. We make those weapons and sold them to whoever has the money to buy them. So, we cant wash our hands off with all the killings going on everywhere.

          • amazing2012

            I like your boldness in accepting truth. But see these:
            Our Global problems are Economic and Political put together lead to insecurity and other vices.
            Economic recession is caused by unnecessary wars the west countries engaged all over the world. War has no budget and its consequences has no end. The Christians make weapons, sales weapons and instigate reason to make use of the weapons.
            Our Global economic control is at the hand of the Christians/Jews who chooses who to give what and why. They control credits and determine economic reserves of individual countries. They project developments and conditioned countries on how to go about With their economy. Creates economic laws favorable to themselves only. They creates organizations in the name of human rights and freedom.
            All these put together creates unemployment and youths stagnation/agitations.
            By these strategy, they creates geographical division among peaceful people, they created hates between leaders and followers from the economic hardships they made– and divide the nation by ethnicity, religion or region. People now begin to push the blame of on leaders for a reason of such division.
            Then the Christians will send weapons to those prostrated minds !
            Please tell me if there is no weapons at hand, the magnitude of deaths of innocent will reduce to nearest minimum !
            “Thou shall not kill” includes making weapons and their proliferation !

          • Julius

            The truth is the truth. Its constant no matter how we may try to hide it. I have come to the realizations that everything in the world comes down to control, money and power. Those who has them will dictate what everyone else does. We in the so called 3rd world must know that the western world will only do whats best for them 1st and other things second. Yes, they make money buy making the weapons , selling them and the shareholders are happy while pointing fingers and blaming the terrorists . Sell more weapons to fight the terrorists. see the circle ?

          • amazing2012

            They don’t sell weapons to fight terrorism but they sell them to encourage terrorism. If there is no terrorism, there will be no business for them. And if there is no weapons there will be no persons to use them. Christians are actually the terrorists and those regarded as one are simply avengers. Trying to emancipate themselves from invaders of their countries !Remember the concept of state terrorism and rogue states.
            Christianity is founded on peace then hijacked by pagans who changes everything that YESHUA brought. Virtually there is no single biblical teaching that is practiced by Christians of today except offering of tithe !

          • Otile

            Don’t be fooled by the Islamist, he is bull-jiving you. Both of you read the same satanic verses of the Koran. Both of you think alike, both of you believe that Christians are your enemies. The only difference is that he is a pretender. He will like to deceive you into seeing him as a Christian because he is presently living in a good Christian country, outside Najeriya. But don’t believe anything he says. Iran manufactures copious weapons, Pakistan does the same. He knows that well, but he will not tell you. He is a deceiver. While you are a straight forward Muslim he is a deceiving irreligious moslem. He uses Al Taqiyya the way you don’t.

        Shiites are very good Muslims, they don’t kidnap. If Buhari was a Shiite he would not have kidnapped Umaru Dikko.

          • Otile

            Are you calling good Shiite people shit head? You are a damned religious bigot.

    People have been saying there are too many Mujahedeens inside Premium Times. It is today i believe it.
    Today is Easter Sunday. I am just coming from church. I have not even eaten any food. i just opened
    Premium Times. What did i see there? COLONEL OF NIGERIA ARMY KIDNAPPED AWAY. Is that the
    sort of thing somebody with fear of God should put on top as topic of the day on Easter Sunday?
    To me, Premium Times is determined to make sure Christians will not celebrate EASTER today.
    Let me tell you people. No weapon fashioned against us shall prosper. My wife is in the kitchen. .
    She is cooking ugwo-ugwo with cray-fish to use with hot starch to take it down. You hear so?

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      Premiumtimes reports news and if an event happens,it must be promptly reported,this has nothing to do with religion. Your reasoning is quite warped. Enjoy your Easter but always remember that not all Nigerians are Christians and not all believe that God exists.

    • emmanuel

      How you know? Owo with Bush Meat and Dry fish with Yam to go to celebrate my Salvation through Christ Jesus and it was cool..
      You know say Buhari never leave Treasury for APC Members to recover their electoral investment, so this na National cake them wan collect from Buhari now. Army Colonel na big meat o! I am sure this the man will cool off in one big APC person house for Abuja and you can be sure the Police, DSS and the Army may not track down the kednappers.

    • Julius

      wow !, Are you okay or you just been funny ? I hope you are been funny. PT report the news. Period.

    • Tony Nwosu

      What are you trying to tell the world. The newspaper you are disparaging is doing its legitimate business from where it pays over 1000 Nigerians directly or indirectly under its workforce. Nigeria will be better if we avoid unnecessary propaganda against our leaders. As a Christian you know what today signifies so you should stand to give testimonies of God’s love among His children and not unnecessary cynicism.

    • Kallah Bature

      Whats the name has to do with you ? What different does it make ?

  • Abidilagungun

    Where colonel get money buy Mercedes Benz GLK?

    • Sparzo

      probably an army pool vehicle for senior military officers, bright spark.

      • Domingos

        An army pool for senior military officers? When did a Colonel become a “Senior” military officer? Stop displaying your mumudity and presenting excuses for corruption instead of praying for success for the honourable kidnappers as they try to recover stolen monies from these military officers.

        • Sparzo

          Maybe not in the ipob/egbesu/biafran army.
          In the Nigerian army, a Colonel is a senior army officer.

          Shouldn’t that be mumurity? No?

          • Otile

            I know you will never fail to drag Biafra to please your masters. This kidnapping took place in Sudaniyya.

            Shouldn’t that be mumurity? No?

            You belittle the country with name calling all the time but, your faggot ass wont migrate back to Congo where your father came from. Get a life and stop wasting the Irrelevant one that you have left.

          • Sparzo

            A colonel is a senior military officer in the Nigerian army.

            I suppose a colonel is a mumurity in the biafran/ipob/egbesu army. No?

        • Julius

          A Colonel is a senior Military officer. Talk to one.

    • Julius

      Good question . I bet they have some info that he has some cash hidden somewhere. These kidnappers has a better Intelligent outfit. Case in point, Pa Falae was kidnapped and we heard later that he got N100mils from Dasuki. I hope they let the Col. go after they collected their share.

      • Sparzo

        Good thinking. We must assume it is the same kidnappers too.

        • Julius

          I think the government should give them contracts to get our money back from those Judges, the Sarakis of this world. Go after the ex ministers and politicians , Give them like 5% of their collections. Forget all these arrests and court shit. lolz.

          • Sparzo

            Julius, that was sarcasm.

          • Julius

            Yes, it was !

            You, at least are a gentleman.

      Don’t we have a credit system in Nigeria? Anybody with a decent job like being in the army or any other and has a good credit standing should be able to buy that car. What is the big deal?

  • Tony Nwosu

    What a big insult to Nigerians! kidnapping a senior officer shows that our security is weak, because the kidnappers knew that the army will do everything to go after them.

    Nigeria Vs Egypt football match was played in Kaduna in a stadium with only 16,000 capacity whereas, Olympic size stada like the Uyo stadium (Best in Africa), Surulere Stadium, Lagos, Calabar Stadium etc which could take over 50,000 persons were all ignored all becos we must “Federal Character” everything in Nigeria. So a Colonel is driving a Car that his salary cannot buy and he is kidnapped and Premium Times is disturbing us with the useless news. Rubbish.

Mass killing of Ibos by Fulani herdsment in the south east-cowards–Very happy that Fulani Buhari was planted in Aso Rock at least to enable us know the truth about how empty empty Fulani certificate forgers like Buhari are to our society–And whose wife is now in charge of the Nations Bureau De Change–animals

    • Julius

      Do they also hold sway in the SS part of the country ?

      • AFRICANER

        The answer could lead us to finally confirm whether the ones in the south are exported from Kano/Kaduna axis, or if they’re random.

          Be serious bro. You are smarter than this. Those guys know their territories and cant operate just about anywhere without the help of the home grown touts that are kidnappers. they are mostly home grown

  • Kokori

    Is it not Buhari who started this kidnapping in 1984 when he approved the international kidnapping of Umaru D. K. from UK? …and since he got to Aso Rock in June kidnapping in Nigeria has become everyday business. Politicians, Farmers, Taxi Drivers, Hawkers, Old men and Women and even Children are been kidnapped everyday.

    Fulani herdsmen’s killing and destruction of life and properties are back under Muhammadu Buhari, a Fulani himself. Not only do these savages rape and kill women, they also kill babies, set villages after villages ablaze, they attack the law enforcement agents, who respond to the calls since the Nigerian Army under the command of Buhari gives them covering. No one is ever prosecuted. The National Assembly cowers and hides and hopes the terror and intimidation of Nigerians by this brutes will grow tired and stop. When, in fact, the opposite happens.

    • Otile

      I am sure the kidnapped Colonel is not A Fulani Muslim.

  • Dr. Dulles

    Editor Premium Times,

    How daft is Bola Ahmed Tinubu?

    A naturally stuttering and inarticulate Bola Ahmed Tinubu has but
    threadbare knowledge, but he’s not slapped all around, only because
    Nigerians are mentally ill creatures who worship thieves and adore those who rob
    the community of sustenance. Here again Bola Tinubu’s vacuity shows. For even
    if he were being honest – which is not conceded – he’d still not have skipped the
    first principle of reasoning, by stating at outset that MUHAMADU BUHARI is the
    substantive Minister of Petroleum.

    For failing to do that,
    Bola Tinubu wore his faith on his sleeves as a money-worshiper who’ll rather
    tell big lies than hurt the actual man holding the keys to the treasury. Bola Tinubu
    unraveled as close to a dunce when in the same jeremiad, he denounced the
    entire result of petrol supply as incompetence, but then declared his unstinting
    support for the policy of the substantive Petroleum Minister, Muhamadu Buhari,
    before Tinubu launched into 360°ridicule to say a light but truthful comment of
    not being a magician by the deputy Minister of Petroleum (Ibe Kachikwu) is the
    whole cause of fuel crisis today. What a daft way to make an argument in public.

    • IZON Redeemer

      The man should be fired–because he lied his way to the top–of the Northern Nigeria Petroleum———Company NNPC———–Were your likes not busy Blaming Deizani for all the troubles in the oil inudstry————–when we all know the main problem of the shortage of petrol at gas stations was because the Fulanis were smuggling it to Niger republic, Mali ati Chad——while Buhari is quietly blaming Ijaw man Tompolo –he sends his Fulani people to claim oil belongs to the Fulani north———————-So why send thief tinubu to the cleaners for allowing Buhari to use his Yoruba brain to insult the junior minister from asaba’ Is Buhari the Oil Minister not the one using him as the—fall guy–Dont u know Tinubu is speaking the mind of Fulani Buhari–? Monkey

      • DTN20000

        @IZON:

        When – since you were born – did Nigeria EVER experience 6-month petrol
        scarcity as happening under Muhamadu Buhari’s presidency beginning January
        and officially assured to last until June this year; and if the answer is NEVER, is
        Nigeria therefore less NOT worse in March 2015 than it is today – with no electricity
        supply nationwide and in effect no water to drink for lack of the electrical power
        to pump potable water to the general public by State Water Corporations?

        • IZON Redeemer

          U are now talking–Buhari is a complete curse to the nation state of Nigeria–give him another 300 years and will he will be grooming in the dark stealing and blaming jonathan for all his shiort comings as a rogue——tinubu spoke the mind of buhari period

  • I sigh

    They are hiding the name of the colonel for dubious reason. It might not be a true kidnap after all.

  • Captano

    This kidnap could come from just about any daring group. Nigeria’s become a killing field.
    Some reports on the web say Buhari’s officials suspect it came from the Shiite Muslims –
    in retaliation for the military action taken against a Shiite Muslim procession in Kaduna,
    when about 1,000 Shiite Muslims in that procession were shot at sight by soldiers.

    I won’t set store by that plausibility, but i will say that if it be the case, Nigeria is done for.
    A war on two fronts against Salafist Boko Haram and a Shiite militia will kill off Nigeria.
    Nigeria’s already wobbly on all fronts without an agreement holding the country together.
    Several triggers could then light up the country’s fuses at once and put an end to Nigeria.

            To those who wondered, here’s a simple fact: An army Colonel does not necessarily move around with security detail as such.Kidnapping one is quite possible as in this case. The fellow who wishes this experience on the COAS knows little about the security cordon around this officer.Almost impossible except if a coup is in the making like happened to General Wushishi during Shagari’s time.

    but praising the Senior Minister of Petroleum for fuel scarcity going on in Nigeria since January?

    Tinubu is not daft at all and will never be daft. Bola Tinubu went to Government College, Ibadan.
    He was best student there. He was the best in all of Yorubaland too. President Nnamdi Azikiwe
    gave him national letter for getting A1 in nine subjects. That was why Ivy League universities
    in America were begging him with full scholarship.

    Because his brain is too much Bola Tinubu
    could not divide himself to two. That was why he went to only one Ivy League university
    in America called University of Chicago. I never finish. I still dey come. Hahahahaha!
