Boko Haram claims control of Bama, others

Boko Haram members

The insurgent group, Boko Haram, has said that it is in control of Borno’s second largest town, Bama.

There had been conflicting reports of who was in control of the town between the sect and the Nigerian military.

Members of the Boko Haram had two weeks ago invaded Bama, killing several people and destroying property, thus forcing residents to flee.

PREMIUM TIMES had reported how the military, last week Monday, attacked the insurgents in Bama in an attempt to reclaim the city. The military had tweeted that it was doing “everything necessary” to stop the insurgents from taking control of the city.

However, in a telephone call with journalists in Maiduguri on Monday, a man who claimed to be Abu Zinnira, a long forgotten spokesperson of the Boko Haram, said the sect was in control of Bama.

Abu Zinnira last spoke for the sect two years ago while the call on Monday lasted just 29 seconds and was in Hausa. Journalists were unable to authenticate if he was indeed the Abu Zinnira who used to speak for the sect.

“This is a rebuttal from the information dissemination and sensitization unit of the Jamaatul Ahlil Sunna Lidawati Wal Jihad (Boko Haram) on the series of lies that the Nigeria military have been feeding the world on our recent conquests,” the ‘spokesperson’ said, while also speaking on the sect’s capture of some towns in Adamawa State.

“Let the whole world know that we are on the path of victory because up to this minute, the town of Bama is under our control, the whole of Minchika is now in our hands, as well as Manalapan (Junction of) Mubi is now fully under our control.

“We are assuring the world that this would be continuous and there will be no going back by God’s grace. This is a message from me Abu Zinnira, on behalf of our brethren,” he said.

PREMIUM TIMES had reported how the Adamawa State government on Saturday confirmed that the sect had taken over Gulak, another town in Adamawa State.

“It has come to the attention of the Adamawa State Government that insurgents are now in Gulak, the headquarters of Madagali Local Government Area and had killed and displaced scores of people.

“On behalf of the people and government of Adamawa, his Excellency deeply sympathises with the people of Gulak and other surrounding villages and towns whose areas had been overran by insurgents,” the Secretary to the Adamawa State Government, Liman Tukur, said in a statement.

The violent activities of the Boko Haram have continued despite a state of emergency imposed on Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe since May last year.

  • Bitter truth

    Gundiri the acting governor of Adamawa is busy struggling for position and looting state money. This man is a greedy, power drunk fellow who is incapable of securing lives and property of Adamawa people. Boko haram is winning propaganda war because Nigerian press believe anything from boko haram but will always cast doubt on our soldiers efforts, discourage and demoralize our soldiers. In the name of freedom of expression they end strengthening the hands of boko haram. Sahara disaster and other online misfit like them have imaginary informants among militants feeding them with “authentic information” of woes and gallantry of the militants. Cameroon government is winning against boko haram partly because the media outfit don’t encourage the militants by spreading fear of the terrorists. ISIS was nurtured indirectly by a section of the media. Now that ISIS have started capturing and beheading the journalists. Terrorists are with warped brains being controlled by demon of destruction so they can be anything any time. I pray it will not get to that ugly point before our media in the desperation to get news about boko haram stop feeding the populace with despair and fear.

    • Gideon Orkar

      Gundiri is not the acting Gov. Pls get your facts right first before commenting

      • Idowu Amos Paul

        Fintiri is the acting Governor not Gundiri.

We need a leader, a president and most importantly a change for better nation.

    What I expect is these PT guys to get their lazy butts out of their chairs, go to Bama and give us LIVE pictures showing who is really in control. Didn’t they see how Christine APC used to do it in Iraq for CNN??

            What is “military fulani renegade janjuweed” ???

    • echelon

      you nailed it there! And most journalists in Nigeria seem to sensationalized boko haram claim than the Nigerian Army

  • the truth

    Trying trying times for this country.we shall conquer.when they started funding this group they never thought it was going to be this big.god is our strength

  • Chris1408

    Boko Haram is ravaging Adamawa, our parasite politicians and worthless INEC are planning to conduct election. Is Shekau on the ballot? Shekau controls the Northeastern Nigeria. Maybe he should conduct the election.

    • Mohstone

      That is the priority of GEJ led FGN. They will send 5,000 military men, 15,000 police men to an election in Ekiti, but only send 500 soldiers to confront BH. You see the irony of priorities showcased by the clueless and inept leadership ever in this country.

      • the truth

        same clueless brothers of yours that set the boko haram to frustrate our amiable president, now its ravaging your people. when they created sharia laws what do you think would be the result. u and i know the cause of this problem but we keep denying it. before jonathan boko haram never existed. believe me the government is on top of this matter, there is no cause for alarm.

        • Mohstone

          Let me tell you the truth if you have the mind to conceive and believe it. We in the north never supported any Gov who came with the name of sharia. We all knew that it was deception. However, these same governors you are talking about that started Sharia all of them are PDP agents. Lets name them: Sheriff, Shekarau, Yerima, Bafarawa, Yuguda, Aleiro, etc. All of them are PDP agents and they used the name of sharia to do something completely opposite. During Obj we have seen how governors an be removed easily and the better for the people, why cant GEJ do same??? Believe me Nyako would still have been gov despite all his shortfalls if he is still in PDP. So forget it.

          • the truth

            mr mohstone u seem like an intellectual but you are channeling it to the wrong cause. Let me address your points one at a time. which of the governors you mentioned apart from aliero were pdp members before 2014, they were all in app.when sharia was conceived i don’t know how old you were then but your senators and house of reps voted massively for it, remember the street protests in gusau and dutse, and the death of 13 policemen in kano? you can’t eat your cake and have it. here you call obasanjo’s undemocratic use of power in illegally removing governors as a good thing, a president who sacked dariye, was that constitutional? now you support unconstitutional moves. i don’t think you are old enough for us to be having this arguement.you seem young, go ask your parents or your uncles what really transpired.

          • the truth

            waiting for your answer here?

          • Don M.

            Don’t hold yur breath. He cnt answer. He don Sh* t for pant! I even begged him to answer below. But i suspect his ‘babanriga has hooked for barbed wire’

        • Chris1408

          What’s amiable about a corrupt, clueless and drunk president? A president that’s globetrotting while his country is losing territory to gangs of terrorists. Where corruption reins supreme in the land. Niger Delta water is pirate haven and oil theft is at all time high. unemployment is more than 80%. Kidnapping and armed robbery is normal day activity in Nigeria. What’s so amiable about that? GEJ should bury his head in shame. If he’s a manager in a corporation and his department is dysfunctional, he’d would have been fired. But the clueless drunk is celebrated by equally clueless followers.

  • Lanre

    From all that I am reading, it is clear the Nigerian Army is demoralized and disorganized. I doubt if there is a cohesive organization. Boko Haram does not seem to me to be rag tag. This is a well organized and funded insurgency.

  • BlackieUmukoro

    It is all propaganda by both parties, the truth will be unveiled by the time we have real time war journalists in Nigeria. For now they hide behind their wives/children in their toilets and ditch out nonsense to Nigerians on the war situation from Ear not Eye witnesses

      And your sitting at the comfort of your home or wherever you are chatting rubbish. If that bothers you, why don’t you go yourself and confirm the report, I challenge you go to bama in Borno State and see what will happen. Can’t you see even the international media not even Aljazeera can go to that region, this is bcoz BH nobi ISIS in Iraq and Syria or Hamas in Palestine Nobi by force oo to believe.

  • tuco

    What is happening in the northeast is just unbelievable, its as if there is no government, Sen McCain of US is right that there is no government, and that means the Republicans in US don’t even recognize Nigerian govt. There had never been lousy and clueless govt in Nigeria since independence like this present govt. This BH are more armed and sophisticated than the military, they are more organized and are carefully, strategically and tactically are executing their mission, and if anybody thinks that this is only a northeast problem, then he got to think again. Very soon if care is not taken the entire country will feel the impact of this terror. They already said it from this report that there is no going back and that means the issue of dialogue is out of the equation. Bit by bit the entire country is collapsing and shockingly people are leaving in denial. With this there is no denying the fact that the military ‘s reputation is at stake. Its a shame.

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      Well stated, Tuco.

  • Mohstone

    When they came for the jews I felt safe cos I am not a jew …. By the time BH spread further, Nigerians will know the kind of useless people we have at the helm of affairs of this country.

      at least u accept the holocaust.

        In your little mindset. Am only quoting a saying.

          so u deny the Holocaust or accept it?what is your position on that?

          • Mohstone

            And whats my biz with Holocaust???

          • the truth

            but it was your business when you posted on the kaduna rally where people were matching for the palestinian cause and the military shot protesters. hypocrite

          • Mohstone

            I never posted anything on the Kaduna rally. I read about it and it was injustice, it doesnt matter who was shot down. Jews in UK also protested against the state of Isreal for the massacre in Palestine yet nobody shot at them.

          • the truth

            i would love to have you on a one to one televised debate, you are such a coward mohstone. your intertwining of the facts is quite alarming.

          • Mohstone

            You call me a coward for telling the truth. No problem. If you ran out of points you will always resort to insults. Thats your childish mentality. I rise above your insults anyday, anytime. I will leave you in your mental state of denial and delusion. When you learn how to talk I will start replying you back, until then, go get a life.

    everyone there is no cause for alarm the fg is on top of this. far reaching efforts are been made. we should not forget to pray for this country, we are going through a tough time. when you have a sensationalized military and boko haram sympathizers in the military it is very hard planning and strategizing. we would conquer very soon.

        your pure hatred for a christian and southerner is killing you inside. itis quite fascinating that i had a drink with a core northerner and his views on all this debacle is quite different from northern sympathizers like you. these are men who have had the opportunity to encompass the world and have a worldview of things not your boxed myopic view, bro try use your head for once

        • Mohstone

          I know you will ended up accusing me of hating Christians. It is people like you that cant reason positively that are dividing this country. I have no problem against any christian. But the fact that Jonathan was a christian doesnt make him or any christian a saint. When Yardua was there we criticised him. Here in Abuja I was at the forefront of the SNG campaign that brought Jona to power. Christianity preaches peace and justice. So tell me where is the justice in this country headed by Jonathan??? A president that gives priority to rigging election than the security of lives and property of his people. I dont want you to accept my opinions, you can stick to your fake way of reasoning I dont have problem with that but dont twist the discussion into a religious affair cos thats not what it is.

          • the truth

            but you would agree with me that under jonathan, the ruling party has lost more election to the opposition, when in the history of this political dispensation has a sitting government lose elections like this. obasanjo made sure there was rigged out sweeping of the polls, u have a president that has succesfully conducted 2 recent elections in ekiti and osun where no live was lost. please i challenge you to tell me in nigeria’s history where no life was lost during a state election. waiting for your answer

          • Mohstone

            The fact that PDP lost Osun doesnt mean that they did not set out to rig election. And the fact that there was no bloodshed is not a yardstick to measure your claims of achievement. In 2007 elections, there was no single bloodshed in my state and yet the PDP lost. So dont deceive yourself with few examples.

          • the truth

            pdp in less than 2 years lost anambra, ondo, osun, edo. now the elections are peaceful you complain of pdp trying to rig, when violent you blame pdp for hiring thugs, the security operatives were brought in for peace you complain they planned to rig it for pdp. bro you cant talk from both sides of your mouth am done with you.

          • Mohstone

            My point is deploy same number of security personnel to BH infested areas and lets see the outcome. Thats my point and nothing more. Its you that run short of ideas who is bringing elections here. You are not only talking from all the sides of your mouth but you also join your anus too.

      • Don Baba Messi

        Mallam, so u still dey hia? How come u didn’t answer the Question ‘the Truth’ asked you. Incase u r pretending not to hav seen it, lemme ask it again on his behalf : ‘WHICH PARTY DID SHERIFF, YERIMA, SHEKARAU, BAFARAWA, YUGUDA, ALEIRO, BELONG TO WHEN SHARIA WAS DECLARED’??????

        Hope u remember you claimed they are PDP members. Which party were they in when the action took place? That the crux of the matter. A bigot like u will alwys be clever by half.
        We await yur answer..if it’s too difficult, forget it..abeg no Sh*t for pant..

      • Don Baba Messi

        Mallam, i love the picture beside your name. I guess that must be yur hero.
        But I have a question for you ;
        let’s assume you have an accounting officer called ‘Sanusi’, and you ask him to reconcile your account with the bank. If the said officer comes up with four different statements of the same account, saying on each occasion ; ‘sorry oga I made a mistake’, what will be yur reaction?
        Will he be yur hero..or villain?
        Fake bigot!

        • Mohstone

          • Don Messi

            Wow! I love the way you ‘dodge’ when you box yourself into a corner.
            Each comment you make contradicts the previous one. You told someone above u do not result to insults to make a point. Yet you also said Nigerians including yourself are foul-mouthed. Read thru yur posts and see the names you call people. You tried being clever by half when you mentioned some governors were/are PDP members. Yet you have not been able to answer which party they were in when the action was taken.
            Sorry mallam, your head is buried in the desert sand..but yur big fat Ass is sticking out in the scorching sun for the world to see! And it’s not looking good at all!

          • Mohstone

            Mushroom brains is not insult but a description of someone who cant use his brain positively. I never said foul-mouthed I said big-mouthed. The party the govs are doesnt matter I explained that APP is an extension of PDP and any true Nigerian knows that. So whats your next question???

          • Don Baba Messi

            If you are not a ‘kuturu’, I suggest you scroll up and see yur comments to Dan fulani and solomon. You said ‘lousy loud mouth’. If yur words are not lousy, tell me what else is.
            U haven’t answered my Quesn..i cnt ask another. Lemme just allow you go smoke your ‘weewee’.

          • Mohstone

            You said I wrote Foul-mouthed and I said you are wrong. I wrote loud-mouthed. But what the heck is all the fuss??? If you want to say something meaningful say it. Dont argue like a street urchin (which am sure you are). Just get to your point and ask meaningful questions so that I can educate you better.

          • john Dare

            He asked you what will be your reaction to an account officer who gives you contradictory bank statements. Hmm. Oga, people are seeing you sink lower and lower into this quick sand oo!

          • Mohstone

            I will investigate the claims of the account officer before I will fire him if he is guilty of misinformation. But If his claims are valid I will fire the people involved in the loot. So does my answer serves you right ??? Egg-Head

          • Garba Sbehu

            And submitting four completely different statements on the same account does not amount to misinformation? Does that need any ‘investigation’? Will such a person inspire your confidence? Imagine you are a billionaire, can you imagine how disastrous and far reaching it would be if this officer omits a ‘Zero’ somewhere four different times???
            Stop struggling to work from the answer to the question. Your answers seem to be predetermined by your deep rooted sentiments. It’s not working for you here.
            I’m just an observer passing by and seeing your exposed behind o!

          • Mohstone

            Yes it requires investigation. Afterall, we are talking of billions here. Its better he raised the alarms even if if they were false than to keep quiet. Atleast, the investigations revealed alot. And to all sincere minds, we all knew what transpired that led to the sacking of the accountant and all the truths buried.

          • the truth

            so through your assertion that app is an extension of pdp, it is then a reliable statement if i postulate that based on your conclusion on the above statement that apc is an extension of pdp since anpp, cnpp, and ac formed what we now know as apc? would i be right in that assumption mr mohstone?

          • Ndagi

            Brilliant submission. Mohstone appears to be an intellectual. But his ethnic / religious sentiments gives his views a very jaundiced coloration.

            do you see how quiet he has become, because any statement from him now considering this issue would have him crucified, and drive my point all this while. lets wait for his response

          • Mohstone

            According to your warped logic ??? ANPP was part of the merger but the bad eggs have found their way back to where they belonged … PDP. If I might ask tell me who else from ANPP is left in APC that can be compared to SAS or Shekarau or Bafarawa???

          • the truth

            good. so with your flawed assertion again, only 3 people made up anpp
            all this while.and there thousands and millions of supporters who
            pitched tent with them were not part of anpp. you just played into my
            den mohstone. buhari as we all know since democratic dispensation was a
            stunch and card carrying member of anpp and only formed cnpp early 2011
            after he was hoodwincked out of anpp ticket. remember he contested for
            the presidency twice under anpp. 2003 and 2007, once lost to obj and
            once lost to yaradua. if your dogma is right that means buhari has been a
            pdp member all this while since he was part of anpp top shots.hmmn that
            means if we vote buhari we would be voting pdp again, since he just
            decamped out of anpp barely 38 months ago. why are supporting a man who
            danced skelewu with obj and jonathan, and deceived few nigerians who
            taught he was really anpp, not knowing from 2002-2011 buhari was pdp in
            disguise

          • Mohstone

            Buhari left ANPP and formed CPC. You can continue to argue along your blinded scope. But it will not erase the fact that APC had successfully gotten rid of the bad eggs that are there. The PDP moles. In your blind logic you will think you are pushing forward a strong argument while in reality you are only exposing your folly. Childish thoughts indeed.

          • the truth

            when did buhari leave to form cpc? and you said these exact words i quote you “The party the govs are doesnt matter I explained that APP is an
            extension of PDP and any true Nigerian knows that. So whats your next
            question???” According to you most nigerians knew app was part and parcel an extension of pdp. So if your statement is correct that means from 2002-2011 when buhari was a card carrying member of app he was part and parcel an extension of pdp. when did buhari form cpc? and which party was he for almost a decade. i thought u were learned but my assumptions are perturbed and farfetched as you are an epitome of lackadaisical acumen. you are here contradicting yourself and me going back and forth with u is a wastage of my time.

          • the truth

            since you are so donce this is a wikipedia on your god buhari, this rests my case on which party he was and contested election.

            In 2003, Buhari contested the presidential election[21] as the candidate of the All Nigeria People’s Party (ANPP). He was defeated by the People’s Democratic Party nominee, President Olusẹgun Ọbasanjọ,
            by a margin of more than eleven million votes. It was claimed by
            Buhari’s supporters and other members of the opposition that in some
            states, like Ebonyi, there were more votes than there were registered voters.[22][23] Although some allegations of fraud were proven in the courts and the conduct of the election was criticized by the Commonwealth Observer Group,[24]
            the consensus among Nigerians was that he should not waste his time in
            court as he did not have the necessary resources to “buy” himself
            justice.[citation needed]
            Eventually, the same court also decided that the level of proven
            electoral fraud was not sufficient to affect the outcome of the election
            and to warrant the cancellation of the whole Presidential election.[citation needed]
            On 18 December 2006, Gen. Buhari was nominated as the consensus
            candidate of the All Nigeria People’s Party. His main challenger in the
            April 2007 polls was the ruling PDP candidate, Umaru Yar’Adua, who hailed from the same home state of Katsina. In the election, Buhari officially took 18% of the vote against 70% for Yar’Adua, but Buhari rejected these results.[25] After Yar’Adua took office, the ANPP agreed to join his government, but Buhari denounced this agreement

    So it is your job at Propaganda Times to publicise Boko Haram’s (Nigerian Al Qaeda’s) claims? If Nigeria’s defence forces made such a claim, you would have wrapped up your “report” with you childish opinions with the aim of discrediting the security forces. Journalism as taught in Oshodi University.

    • the truth

      didnt u know boko haram is fighting two causes, they have foot soldiers like mohstone who pass propaganda and media houses like premium times who convince nigerians we are loosing. this is done so nigerians show dissent against the government and as such demoralise the nation, who gains, apc, which then emphasizes that the government is weak and they are the alternatives. another winner is premium times, through this posts, money lines up there pocket and they are patronized. u see the game.

      • Mohstone

        It seems like Mohstone is a peck in your eyes or like a hole in your head. For the records I dont support BH and I hate them with disdain. What we are saying is that the GEJ led FG is handling the situation with Kid gloves. If the FGN has the power over the army and all security outfits then they can definately erase this menace since. But GEJ appears to be sleeping over the issue. If the Military are really having an upper hand, we will all celebrate. Remember when they claimed to have retaken Bama, only for them to come later and said the fighter jets mistakenly killed Nigerian soldiers not Boko Haram. Why didnt they say so in the first place??? Who are they trying to deceive???

        • ifebuche

          So because Premium Times told you boko Haram said it is now gospel abi? Or are you one of the Boko Haram and giving us a confirmation? Army tells you bama is intact you shout lies, Boko Haram tells you they have it you believe. Are you bananas?

      Propaganda is part of warfare and that is why Marilyn Ogar the ugly DSS woman has been telling us lies instead of dealing those terrorists and their sponsors, and they busy defending Ihejirika, the major sponsor.

    Premium Times is at it again,the authentic boko haram mouthpiece.

  • King Carlos

    For the past 2 or 3 years… our security forces have been on the boko haram issue. … and only one side has been successful so far and that is boko haram…. they keep gaining territories every day. This thing is already out of hand. Our security prioritize elections more than our territorial integrity. It’s so such a pity that nigerians are blinded by politics , religion and tribe.

      Have you renewed your Boko Haram membership card yet?
