EXCLUSIVE: Nigeria raises troops for Gambia, ready to remove Yahya Jammeh

Buhari and Jameh

The Nigerian Army has raised an army battalion that would be deployed in troubled Gambia to forcefully remove President Yahya Jammeh from power if he fails to step down on January 19, PREMIUM TIMES can authoritatively report today.

The battalion, christened ECOMOG NIBATT 1, was drawn from the Army’s 19th Battalion based in Okitipupa, Ondo State, military insiders have told PREMIUM TIMES.

Personnel were also drawn from other formations and units across the country due to shortage of men at 19 Battalion which has a significant chunk of its troops deployed for internal security task force, Operation Delta Safe.

This newspaper learnt that the Army Headquarters has instructed the nominated officers and men, put at over 800, to immediately report at the Nigerian Army School of Infantry, Jaji, for a crashed course on counter terrorism and counter insurgency.

Our sources said Army Headquarters has also instructed the Army directorates of policy and plans; finance; and logistics to ready funds, arms, ammunition and other logistics for the operation.

The Armoured Corps is also working hard to ready armoured vehicles needed for the task, officials said.

There were suggestions by some of our sources that the Nigerian Air Force and the Navy might deploy men and equipment for the operation as well.

Top military officers said the Nigerian Battalion would be deployed in The Gambia anytime after January 19 if President Jammeh makes real his threat not to step down after the expiration of his tenure.

“This is an emergency operation, but we are ready,” one officer said. “The Nigerian Army is a strong, professional fighting force battle ready at anytime. We are so well structured that we can deploy at the touch of a button.

“We did it in Liberian, Sierra Leone and elsewhere. And Jammeh should know that we are not a joking force. Once we get the all clear from ECOWAS, the AU and the UN to move in, we can pick him up.”

The regional bloc, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), had on December 23 put standby military forces on alert.

The ECOWAS Commission President, Marcel de Souza, said Senegal, The Gambia’s only territorial neighbour, would lead any military operation in the country.

Other West African countries will be mandated to provide troops as well, Mr. De Souza reportedly said.

Mr. Jammeh lost the December 1 2016 Gambia presidential election to opposition candidate, Adama Barrow.

He initially accepted defeat and congratulated Mr. Barrow but changed his mind and decided to challenge the outcome of the election.

He also vowed not to hand over to the winner as expected on January 19.

On Thursday, Mr. Jammeh said he would not step down before a Supreme Court decision on the disputed election, the BBC reported.

The President, the report said, insisted his cabinet and the National Assembly would remain in place until the Supreme Court rules on his party’s petition.

There is currently shortage of judges in the country to sit on the matter.

The case can only be heard in May if Nigeria agrees to supply judges to the Supreme Court.

West African leaders, led by President Muhammadu Buhari, the chief mediator, are travelling to Gambia on Friday to persuade Mr. Jammeh to accept an “honourable exit plan”.

  • Africa

    Bravo! One ECOWAS..

    • TTT news centre

      I will continue in office as President of Gambia…….

      “Only the supreme court of The Gambia can declare anyone a President. So, I ask anyone of us to respect
      the supreme law of the republic and await the Supreme Court review on the election result. Our investigations
      have revealed an unprecedented foreign interference in our elections and internal affairs. And also a sustained
      smear campaign, propaganda and misinformation. Our Constitution is the supreme law and does not allow any
      organization or law or treaty to supersede it as per section 4 of the Constitution; the supremacy of the Constitution”.

      ……….President Jammeh of The Gambia

      (January 10th, 2017)

      • TTT news centre

        “Ecowas decision
        to implement the Gambian election results by whatever means possible
        is totally illegal. It is in effect a declaration of war and an insult to our
        constitution and it is therefore absolutely unacceptable. This blatant and
        one-sided dimensional approach of the role of Ecowas is not predicated on
        pursuit of justice in the resolution of this stalemate.

        This partisanship of Ecowas has also disqualified it from providing
        mediation services as the genuine mediator has to be neutral and impartial to
        win the confidence and trust of the parties to the conflict. Thus, we will not
        enter into negations brokered by Ecowas if it does not recognize that
        provisions of the Gambian constitution provide the basic legal principles to
        guide the sorting out of the details of this stalemate.”

        ………President Jammeh of The Gambia

        (January 1st, 2017)

      • Africa

        Haha…I dictator talking of respect for rule and the republic. Wonder they say never ends.

    • Revolution coming

      …Why is ECOWAS not acting against killer so called presidents who kill peaceful protesters and bury them in mass graves as confirmed by Amnesty International with video evidence? Is the rumoured attrocities of President Jammed anywhere close to killing 278 Biafra protesters and 375 Shite Muslims all in one day? Why can’t we simply place culpability where culpability belongs? Where lies the moral right for Nigeria to act? This is criminality akin to scenes in George Orwell’s Animal Farm with Napoleun, Snoball and his puppies rampaging.

      • marc umeh

        Where was your outrage when a Governor ( Ebonyi. State in Biafra ) vowed to die for Buhari in 2019. He may know something you don’t.
        Your struggle should begin at home.

    • CeeCee1818

      Hear hear!

  • L’homme Diplomatique

    @aligarba:disqus

    We must be careful in Nigeria. What goes around comes around. What if in 2019 Egypt, South Africa,
    Algeria and Rwanda form a coalition of the willing to remove President Muhamadu Buhari from office
    for the genocide perpetrated on 300+ Shiites, and if that invasion coincides is scheduled to occur
    whilst buhari has an application in the Nigerian Supreme Court on the genocide of the Shiites?
    Would wise Nigerians consider the foreign invasion as good and acceptable diplomacy?
    Military invasion of a country over an election relut pending court hearing is far worse.
    It was begun by France in Ivory Coast and was accepted by daft Africans as okay.
    Whereas it is wrong in principle and wrong in law – and absolutely wrong as policy.

    • Furaku

      @disqus_2ZP9pbGSmf:disqus Hahahahaha If a coalition of the willing should invade Nigeria to remove President Buhari
      like that Wole Soyinka will carry all the dictionary and thesaurus on his head to speak the kind English that
      hypocrisy cannot allow him to speak now, as a Buhari supporter. Wole Soyinka will say something like this.
      “Our collective humanity is buffeted and raped by insidious barbarians at the gates; by a thoroughgoing
      apocalyptic invasion of the very sinews of out body polity; the nascent democracy whence our toddler nation
      derives nurture and sustenance from the gods of the land!”.
      Hahahahaha Hypocrites!!! Nawafordem.

      • princegab

        You’ve not heard from prof WS and you are fidgety all over missing him, go ahead defecate on your bed now that I’m telling you jammeh is a foregone conclusion as far as the prof is concerned.

      • CeeCee1818

        Lol! I have a feeling Soyinka will respect the will of the people and support the invasion to remove an obstinate dictator.

    • marc umeh

      Blab Blah Blah. !!!
      Sometimes you need force to bring an African to his senses.

      • CeeCee1818

        And there are many Africans who need to be brought to their senses!

  • I just dey ask O!

    IS PRESIDENT MUHAMADU BUHARI NOW THE HEAD OF SUPREME COURT OF GAMBIA?

    I ASK BECAUSE BUHARI WANTS TO RESOLVE ELECTION DISPUTE WITH ARMORED TANKS.

    • KONSTITUTIONALIST

      You get sense at all? Before you ask question did you read section 2222(a)(b)(1) of constitution of Gambia?
      Go and read that first and come back here for extra lesson for free, you hear? Section 2222(a)(b)(1) of the constitution of Gambia may say as follows:

      • “Where in The Gambia a presidential election result is disputed because the Electoral Commission
      has signed two (2) different results sheet showing different figures, another country, not too far away
      from The Gambia, but in any event nor further than Nigeria, shall summon a well-regulated battalion;
      backed with armoured tanks, and, supported by deadly naval and air-force units to invade Gambia”.

  • Watch man

    No matter how logical it may seem, it is ethically and morally inappropriate for a sovereign nation to go and remove the govt of another sovereign nation. This is an act of aggression and can never be the solution to the crisis in a sovereign nation, in this case Gambia. Nigeria is not ECOWAS police and must not be looked up to for such role. What goes around keeps coming around. Nigeria, BE WARNED!

    • Goxy333

      @disqus_2ZP9pbGSmf:disqus: President Buhari should act responsibly and renounce military force as option.
      There is no sense in Buhari’s plan to invade another country. There are no medals for such rubbish.
      There are only 1.8 million people in The Gambia. Now, President Buhari will invade it with 1,000 troops.
      Where is the sense in that one? Go and fight Boko Haram that’s killing soldiers like flies. Leave Gambia.

      • Watch man

        Exactly! We have a nagging challenge in Niger Delta; BH has not been completely overrun even as more suicide bombings are going on; foreign exchange has reached unbearable level. Nigeria has so much problems and challenges that should keep PMB busy at home. Routing for a sovereign nation should not be our priority now.

    • X.T Foranalyst

      @disqus_2ZP9pbGSmf:disqus & @aligarba:disqus

      Guys, stop blaming President Muhamadu Buhari un-necessarily. If Buhari does not
      show and therefore does not have Wasc/Gce certificate we must be humble to
      accept that he’s somewhat intellectually disabled to understand international
      law and diplomacy. It is because you guys are not humble that can explain why
      you are not realistic to think President Buhari will know better that election
      dispute resolution belongs to sovereign powers of each country and so can
      never be the basis in international law or diplomacy for a military invasion.
      President Buhari can’t be expected to know those things without Wasc/Gce
      certificate. Nigerians who are well-read should rather hold President Buhari by
      the hand on Gambia and whisper these things to him in Hausa language or in
      Fufulde despite the next difficulty that there may be no equivalent word in
      either Hausa or Fufulde for “Sovereignty” of The Gambia.

      • RAPE on the Niger Delta

        There is massive poverty in the Niger Delta. There is nothing to show for the wealth of the region as monies from the region are used to develop Abuja and the rest of the country. The only benefit the oil producing and resource owners – Biafra and Niger Delta regions benefit from Nigeria are :
        – Pollution
        – Neglect
        – Violence
        – Military Occupation
        – Wanton arrest of its citizens
        – Harassment
        – Sponsored propaganda to defame
        – Bypass in political appointments
        – Hate, hate and more hate
        – Etc etc, etc

        …yet, the parasitic regions (Vultures) that feast on the resources of the Niger Delta want it to remain part of Nigeria even as they care not about the many artificial problems that oil exploration has brought to the people –Health issues / Diseases arising from toxic pollutants. Buhari never borrowed to clean up the Niger Delta or rehabilitate the displaced farmers and fishermen. But he borrows to resettle those reportedly displaced by Islamic terrorists – a people (Terrorists) he claims must not be killed.

        SECESSION is the only way for the Niger Delta and Biafran regions if they must achieve their potentials. Buhari can remain president of the rest of Nigeria and those of us who do not want to be associated with Nigeria in any way should be left alone to live our dreams and fly to our destination – have our own country. And this is what we must do. May God be with our freedom fighting comrades – the AVENGERS.

    • marc umeh

      Yeah , just as it was inappropriate for little CUBA to fight in South Africa and Angola to liberate them from minority rule
      Some Africans will never learn.!!!

      • Watch man

        “The Nigerian Army has raised an army battalion that would be deployed in troubled Gambia to forcefully remove President Yahya Jammeh from power if he fails to step down on January 19”
        Some West African countries (Gambia inclusive) agreed and formed ECOWAS. Nigeria is not equal to ECOWAS; therefore they should not be ECOWAS police. Doing so would mean Nigeria is rising against another nation. This is inappropriate. It has to be the coalition of member states as agreed in a convention with Gambia and other West African countries in the said convention.

        • ayo

          My guy you may not be aware that a lot of Nigerians own businesses and live in the Gambia…
          If that country melts down it will affect Nigerian interests…
          A total melt down of that country will also lead to the loss of many innocent lives….
          The other fact is that many citizens in that country will become refugees thereby turning the whole West African region into a refugee crisis….

    • CeeCee1818

      It’s the whole region coming to the aid of one of them. Remember one day it could be you needing help.

      We sympathize with you my friend. Niger Delta is an eye sore. Lacks infrastructure and has nothing.

        From 1999-2015, There is NDDC,ministry of Niger delta,13% derivation as well as state governors,local government chairmen and women,senators,reps members and houses of assembly scattered across the Niger delta and fully funded from public purse,what do those do? what do you still want the government to do? if all these are not able to change the lives of people there, God himself will not be able to help,I am sorry

    The Nigerian Army has raised an army battalion that would be deployed in troubled Gambia to forcefully remove President Yahya Jammeh from power if he fails to step down on January 19, PREMIUM TIMES can authoritatively report today.

    Just a few days ago, this Buratai PLC [oops! Ngerian army] was threatening PremiumTimesNG for alleged effrontery to CEO Buratai, but come next day, it is leaking news to the same PremiumTimesNG, this time, threatening to remove President Yahya Jammeh by force come the January 19. What is one to make of this ‘hot and cold’, and somewhat schizophrenia relationship of the Nigeria army with PremiumTimesNG?

    • Otile

      True to type, see what I am talking about. See how you blow hot and cold. We know the Buharii officer you are talking about. In public you smear the person of Gen Buratai in private you praise him and shout to his ears – Sai Baba.

      • CeeCee1818

      @marcumeh:disqus : The thing there
      is that President Buhari has been a total failure in office. Buhari now sees a
      chance to say at least he can achieve something. That is why he wants to rush
      and fight a tiny army of The Gambia. You see the point now? If President Buhari
      wants to show that he loves democracy why doesn’t he send our soldiers to Libya
      where heavy shelling is going on now? Or send Nigerian soldiers to go and fight in
      Somalia? Buhari just wants this foreign adventure in the smallest African country,
      with the smallest national army, just to look less useless.

    • Oladele

      He can deploy, if the numbers are small, Nigeria is not paying or what she pays can be absorbed within current budget, he can also seek urgent powers under “emergencies” without any serious hearing. It changes if long term and cost a fortune.

  • Theophilus

    Niger Delta pollution is becoming a disaster of epidemic proportion. Pollution everywhere and diseases ranging from Cancers, Low sperm count, loss of libido, miscarriages, Asthma etc have become prevalent with the region leading the countries in terms of patients affected. But the Nigerian govt is doing nothing to addrerss these issues. All it cares about is renewal and allocation of oil licenses. Niger Deltans must begin to consider secession and resource control as an option by any means necessary.

    What if President Jammeh commands thousands of devout Gambian Muslims to take to suicide bombing? Folks we shall be returning dozens of body bags to Nigeria daily. It will be ugly.

    The move may be neccessary to discourage the sit – tight syndrome among the greedy African leaders. But if may ask can any ECOWAS nation be ready to send troops to Nigeria if for example, Buhari refuses to quit should he be defeated come 2019? Or is it because Gambia is a tiny nation with a weak military.

    Can Buhari justify his stand on Gambia election issue judging from the manner he deployed a joint military bridgade and almost entire Nigeria Police Force, to rig a re-run election of just a few National Aseembly seats in Rivers State Dec 10, 2016.

    Buahi, please search your Conscience.

    Nonsense! Yahya Jammeh will not be intimidated! YAHYAH will remain president of Gambia until a new, credible, free and fair election is held again to determine the true winner of Gambia’s presidential race. Adama Barrow never won the elections. They stole the verdict for Barrow and Yahya will never accept it !!!!! To helll with that so-called ECOWAS hipocrits! Yahya is not afraid of them and their empty “threats”!!!!!

    These guys are jokers. The Nigerian army that has not been able to pick up Shekau after 7 years fighting boko haram will now all of a sudden pick up Jammeh that easily?? What losers and jokers!!!

    Destroy him.

    Gambian troops are poorly trained and poorly led – they don’t believe in Jammeh, either.

    Only when dictatorship leads to death will African leaders seek democratic mandates.
