Nigeria hits back at Niger; accuses coalition soldiers of looting, helping Boko Haram

Director of Defence Information, Chris Olukolade

The Nigerian military responded with anger Thursday after its soldiers were dismissed by the defence authorities of Niger as “cowards”, in a rare public tit-for-tat between the two countries involved in the fight against extremist group, Boko Haram.

Niger’s Defence Ministry had in an earlier statement said its soldiers, unlike their Nigerian counterparts, do not run away in the face of battle with Boko Haram militants.

“Our soldiers are not like Nigerians. They don’t run,” the statement said.

In series of tweets, the Nigerian Defence Spokesperson, Chris Olukolade, branded Nigerien soldiers “looters”, and accused them of providing fighters to Boko Haram.

Mr. Olukolade said it was unacceptable for Niger, involved in a Multi-National Joint Task Force, MNJTF, with Nigeria, Cameroun and Chad, to insult Nigerian soldiers who fight to defend their country.

Mr. Olukolade, a Major General, described the Nigerien military as “treacherous” and “poor”.

In his tweets, the general, however assured that the Nigerian military and its soldiers will not be deterred by the insult, as they were focused on clearing the country of the insurgents.

    If you’re having problem with everybody,both the mighty and the small,then you need to check yourself,something is seriously wrong.

    • Lanre

      Let me hazard a very dangerous scenario. Other countries bordering Nigeria – Niger, Chad, Cameroun get tired of Nigeria’s ineffectiveness at the borders. They then conduct joint raids into Nigerian territory on a continuous basis. Probing deeper and further…….and further…….

    The Nigeriens have a point…

    The strategy defeat Boko Haram in 6 weeks on the pages of newpapers. Nigerians knows our army have been demoralised by currupt and innept leadership.

  • Khadijah D.

    Just look at how our once feared army are ridiculed at! Also, they are now behaving like market women, all talks no action.

    Imagine b4 GEJ’s confuse leadership, nobody has the audacity to talk to Nigeria anyhow, especially any of our poor neighbors..

    Just look at how this Jonathan has rubbished the name and reputation of Nigeria!!!

    Things must change!

    • tundemash

      Exactly my thoughts !

  • Oladele

    Olukolade, hold down your head in shame and resign. If you were able to fight Boko-Haram would you have needed Nigerien Army? You have no shame like your commander in chief. All of you should just go and leave us alone. You brought shame and ignominy upon Nigeria.

  • evi

    What an insult to our military! The only soldiers that run away are boko haram moles and mainly from the northern extraction and it is the plan between them and boko haram to run away and leave behind their sophisticated weapons for boko haram to use indirectly providing arms for boko haram .we all know that Niger and Chad has been undermining the Nigerian military but we Nigerians are behind our soldiers that are killed and maimed daily fighting for our country.

    • tundemash

      Cl0wn ! . ….

      Niger soldiers have been undermining the Nigerian boys scout military and yet you sort assistance from them.
      Chadian soldiers have been undermining the Nigerian boys scout military and yet Dumbo your President was in Chad about 3 times last year with Modu Sheriff doing what with those u claim are undermining your boys scout military ?

      The only person you creek rats haven’t bamed is God but i know soon you would blame HIM for all your woes

      • love.t

        You are very right bro!!! Look the last I made a comment last week here I said that president jonathan Goodluck has bring Nigeria down by not be able to protect Nigeria for two days election,,,,, by asking most poorest nation in world to help fight insurgency is risk that would undermine our sovereignty as nation and it put us in danger in future if you could remember similar of that happened between RUWANDA and UGANDA…

        • evi

          If you think the election was postponed because of your terrorist brothers, you must have believed the trash Jega is peddling around.Jega’s plan with apc to disenfranchise and weaken the voting strength of the south was exposed ,how can you have 80% pvc collection rate in the core north even in states where you guys claim boko haram is holding siege and just 40% in the south, even children, chadians and nigeriens have collected pvc in the north, better tell those children and illegals not to come to the polling units this time around like buhari sent them last election because our gallant soldiers are waiting for them and theywill have themselves to blame

          • tundemash

            Creek rat .. so it was Jega who wrote that the militray is starting some useless 6 weeks operation against Boko Haram ?
            Soon that “awoof” amnesty money being used to pay for your pay-per-post job will dry up and it will be back to the jungle for you !

      • blueeyedkitten

        after reading your comment, i strongly feel this moron(olukolade) and all the military top brass should all be retired. they are a complete disgrace to the nigerian people.

        • tundemash

          Hence they are all jittery about a Buhari Presidency !

          • evi

            Buhari will be president of terrorist and arewa republic, not Nigeria

          • tundemash

            Keep jabbing the air. The world now knows Dumbo has infected your boys scout military with cowardice !

      • evi

        Terrorist! You would rather believe any trash than believe in your military, you and your terrorist brothers have no hiding place this time around. Your allies in niger military are exposing themselves one by one, your allies in niger military must be so desperate that Nigerian military is bombarding boko haram from every corner that they had to throw a cheap shot at our gallant soldiers,you should be preparing to go and meet your 72 virgins in hell, because our gallant soldiers are coming for you and your kind. Blood sucking terrorist!

        • tundemash

          anyone who has a different opinion from the propagnagda you are fed with at the amnesty camp is a terrorrist ?
          No wonder a Dumbo rules you a boys’ scout General blames everything in sight except his incompetence.

    • Maitama Tambari

      Evi. Who is COmmander in Chief, who is Chief of Army Staff, who are the Commanding Officers? From 2009 to date, who was recruiting , and inlisting Officers into the Army? Your brothers. If the Nigeria Army were able to control the situation in Maiduguri when late President Yar Adua handed over the operation before his death to them, do you think Niger, Chad and Cameroon would shame us. No. Your brothers shame us. So shut up. Change shall come. CHANGE! YES WE CAN.

      • evi

        You and your kind are a bunch of unpatriotic nigerians who take pleasure in any story, true or false that discredits the military, always rooting for the military and Jonathan’s govt to fail,in your desperate attempt to return power to the north. if it were our military that criticised niger first, you would have still sided with niger, Jonathan made a mistake of not allowing Ihejirika to wipe out you and your terrorist brothers and your generation but that mistake is being rectified. Better start preparing to go and meet your 72 virgins in hell.

  • ODOFIN, Lagos

    This is graceful and shameful. I think gej as the Commander-In-Chief of Armed Forces is overstaying in office…

  • Maria

    It is on video how Nigerian soldiers run away from boko haram… I knew it would come to this…Jonathan has decimated Nigerian army… all they know best to do now is how to rig elections and intimidate civilians…but when faced with Boko haram, they run like chicken just as the Nigeriens rightly said.

  • Femi T.

    What a shame and what does Nigeria army expect when the country requests assistance from small and poor neighboring countries. It’s a sign of weakness, Nigerian military is competent but low moral and corruption are undermining their ability to prosecute this war. The military needs urgent reform.

  • blueeyedkitten

    this is embarrassing indeed. common niger talking to us like this? how times have changed. we really need to reclaim our glory past asap; starting from march 28th 2015. cant take this humiliation anymore.

    • Atk Samsung

      My dear we need it; and truthfully there has never been a past-glory as we always console ourselves. We need to hit rock bottom before we take a major leap and the time is now. How low can it get to be a Nigerian these days, thankfully our individual strong sense of self is helping but we need collective efforts.

  • SAM .A

    ‘How are the Mighty fallen . Tell it not in Gath’ and publish it not on the streets of Nigeria, that Nigerian Army has become the foot stool of Nigerien Army. The giant of Africa has been humiliated by one of his poorest neighbor in the world.How did we get here?

    • blueeyedkitten

      you just reminded me of patrick obahiagbon. thanks.

  • sammyctu ode

    jonathan, pdp and the useless military we have never factored this ugly development when they said “boko haram will be wiped out within six weeks”, which was the primary factor the election was postponed, they forgot that there is God Almighty who never sleeps and HE has the ultimate power to decide who rules Nigeria as from May 29th. What the NIGER MILITARY SAID IS THE TRUTH BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS WRONG WITH THE NIGERIAN MILITARY. IN ANY CASE, WE ARE HOLDING JONATAN, PDP AND MILITARY TO THEIR WORDS THAT IF THEY DO NOT WIPE OUT BH IN SIX WEEKS, BY HIS GRACE, THEY WILL LOSE THE ELECTION. FOR MANY YEARS, THIS IS THESAME NIGER THAT WAS COMING TO COLLECT THEIR CIVIL SERVANT SALARIES FROM NIGERIA. It’s not their fault because our useless government gave them the odersity to insult us. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME ON jonathan, pdp and our confused military who have already ran out of any meaningful strategy.

    • Gaskiya

      The military need very radical restructuring. Soon they will get it.

  • pheliciti

    This is scandalous. Olubolade takes his example from the Condemner in Chief (who likened Nigerians to goats) to heap the blame on the foreign soldiers helping him as well as the people he’s meant to serve. Shameful! A more professional officer would take this up directly with the Nigerien authorities.

  • UNAFFECTED

    Just now, just now.

  • Wise Head

    Another opportunity for APC e-rats to start raining insults on the country. But they would conveniently forget that their General Buhari the “anti-corruption man” looked Nigerians in the face and said that Abacha did not steal any money. Yet every rat and spider knew that Abacha stole so much that “Abacha Loot” has become a global metaphor. Even some of the loot has been repatriated to the country? And why would Buhari exonerate Abacha? My guess is that Abacha was from the North West as Buhari and had also offered Buhari the lucrative post of PTF Head.The same Buhari said he obtained a bank loan of N27 million with a phone call, imagine that? That is the new face of Change! And despite his claims that he is very poor, his wife just donated N 133 million worth of materials in Adamawa. My, friends, make una leave matter for Mathias.

      Yes what the Nigers general said is uncalled for. But the only option for NA is to plead with them not to called them names, but not to react stupidly as this olukolade did. After all what the Nigerien General said is a fact known all over the world.

  • Yusuf

    Just another flimsy excuse to scuttle the whole operation. You can not boost of anything until you win the war. It was wrong for the Nigeriens to say what they said but u cant abuse them for saying the truth until you stop running and win the war….trying to blame Nigerien army for BH success may be bizarre bcus in the past Nigeria had the might to invade any of its neighbors at will… Insult is is the least u get when u sell your pride

    Here we have our lying General speaking like a market man. What is the job of the president when olukolade is the one telling us that Niger is an enemy.

    • Naira

      Na lie, they just don’t want the fight to end, so they want to castigate the soldiers from Niger so that they can withdraw and allow boko stupids to keep killing people, meanwhile the Nigerian army will keep getting allowances and contracts.

  • concerned

    GOOD FOR NIGERIAN ARMY. IF YOU HAD TACKLED BOKO HARAM, WOULD YOU HAVE HAD TO USE NIGER, CHAD AND CAMEROUN SOLDIERS? IMAGINE, GIANT OF AFRICA NOW DWARF OF AFRICA. YOU SAY THEY ARE POOR, BETTER TO BE POOR AND HONORABLE THAN RICH AND DISHONOURABLE.

  • when VP Sambo said Buhari cannot fight Boko Haram because he could not run, you guys did not understand that fighting Boko Haram is all about running these days.
    Nigerian Army are not cowards, we cannot tolerate that from Niger at all. Running is not the same thing as fear, its called tactical maneuver.

    • Dan Arewa

      With your type of tactical maneuver, our so-called military is doing exactly what Niger Republic explained….throwing away their guns and running away (‘cowardly’). Today, Nigerians have more faith in vigilante groups who uses local guns we called (bindigar toka) than in they have in military who uses sophisticated weapons, because of the unfortunate failure and incompetence they always show. May be corruption played a significant role in making our soldiers ‘cowards’ and the rotten, inexperienced and ill-trained head(s) leading them.

    • abc

      Thank you for putting it correctly. I understand what the man means now.

  • Wise Head

    I am glad the messages is being passed correctly. So long as the Yoruba continue to underestimate the Hausa/Fulani, they would continue to hold the shot end of the stick despite their great education and political sophistication. Nobody should allow the propaganda fueled by the Hausa/Fulani elements in the APC to deceive him or her. Listen to authentic and credible Yoruba elders like Ayo Adebanjo and the rest of the Afenifere elders. Tinubu does not care about Yoruba interest and the Fulani know it. Yorubas too should know it. Look at how one man still almost controls the affairs of Lagos even after leaving office. The Fulani know about his great greed. That’s why they got him so cheap to agree to be used to return power to the North. His greed is what they capitalised on. But they will dump him and those from South West following him once they get power. NPN did it to Abiola. Umaru Dikko told MKO that the presidency was not for sale after they had made him spend so much to build the party instead of supporting Pa Awo of UPN. Abacha repeated it to Abiola after he got his support and that of the Yoruba political elite to sack Shonekan’s interim Govt and consolidate on power. Abacha dumped Gen Oladipo Diya. Is Tinubu the next to be used? Yoruba ronu!

      Your Ijaw President said he will FINISH BOKO HARAM IN SIX WEEKS just because he is afraid of the election. Did Yorubas enter his Ogogoro skull to make him say that? Did Yorubas leave their spaces in Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Osun, Ondo, Ekiti, Kwara, parts of Edo and Kogi and flew to Niger Republic to whisper to the head of state of Niger Republic what to do to continue to take Jonathan’s oil money? You need to examine your head properly. If your Ijaw president is incompetent, why does he throw in the towel? Why dont you tell him the truth as fellow Ijaw?

      Are you normal Reno Omokri? Have you taken your cocaine again? You have someone called President Jonathan who called himself an Ijaw President. He gave money and license to Mr. “Government” Tomopolo a fellow Ijaw to buy SIX warships ready to start terrorism on his behalf when he-Jonathan loses. Your Ijaw president -Jonathan-instigated same Tomopolo, Dokubo-aari and boyloaf (of bread) to right INSIDE THE BAYELSA GOVERNMENT HOUSE-to say they will start terrorist war if Jonathan loses, and the adviser to Jonathan Kuku WAS AT THAT MEETING!!! Did Yorubas do that? Same Ijaw President-Jonathan -asked his minister Diezani Alison Madueke (since she-Diezani plays so many roles for Jonathan both private and public), to give him 70 milion Naira for his rally in Bayelsa-did Yorubas do that “empty head”? Did this same Jonathan who sees himself as Ijaw president not destroy the solidarity among South South Niger Delta national groups just because he sees himself ONLY AS IJAW? ? Cant you see what is going on there-in South South? Goodluck Jonathan is the Commander in Chief of the military, he said he will end Boko Haram in SIX WEEKS, after making previous fraudulent promises, did Yorubas put their hands in Jonathan’s mouth to say that? So? Did the Yorubas go to Niger Republic to tell the head of state of Niger Republic to do what he is doing? Look the issue is, you have an Ijaw President. he sees himself as an ethnic president-an Ijaw President-So? He- Jonathan can NEVER imbue patriotism and nationalism in anyone. No corrupt, tribalist Commander in Chief which Goodluck Jonathan is will ever win any war. Jonathan is corrupt. Jonathan is a tribalist. Those two ailments will never win a war. Ijaw man face your Ijaw President -Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and tell one another the truth as fellow Ijaws. He knows his time is up. And you Ijaws know. You all are only playing for time. Goodluck Jonathan is only playing!!! He will leave with our votes, the votes of Nigerian people.

      I was born and bred in Lagos, happen to speak Yoruba. I have friends and relations from other parts Nigeria, most especially my Igbo in-laws. That I speak Yoruba or claim to be from SW doesn’t make me think like Mr Ayo Adebanjo or Afenifere you mentioned. In fact I have high distaste for such groups of people. I am smart enough to distrust Tinubu. As an early teen in the years of Buhari/Idaigbon government, I clearly had sympathy for the duo because they had honesty of purpose even though they did certain “right” things the wrong way. Then I pitied fellow Nigerians who called them the non-smiling general. Have Nigerians not suffer enough from having a distaste for truth. I learn Awolowo cursed that Nigerian’s will go through 50-years of hardship having looked into the future based on his experience in 79/83 elections. It seem you can only see things from the ethnic angle. I adore General Buhari. It has nothing to do with being a Yoruba, APC, Tinubu, or whoever. It is his antecedents.

      • Wise Head

        Adore him, okay. But the only luck we have is that GEJ will defeat Buhari. If not, you would have seen pepper under the Buhari/Tinubu arrangement

    This is how i see it,this is part of the master plan,when Dasuki flew the Kite in London regarding PVCs’ i said it here that the destination is, election postponment citing security constaints. Now another contrived childish arguements with the military of another sovereign state!
    If this is not another subterranean move,pray, why haven’t our military intelligence cried foul since?. Oh i see the week that the military, after so mamy years, now have the balls to enter Sambisa forest, they have now added another enemy to their challenges. You see,i suspect a cynical ploy, crafted by the top most of this administration to find a way out of this awaited election with the spurious claim of ‘war’ on all fronts. Something just aint right!

      Kitunde please tell me! Do we have any military intelligence? I don’t know.

    • Atk Samsung

      I do not think Nigerians, and even the military, know that potential implication of what is going on. We should know what happen in democratic republic of Congo or somewhere in Africa when the military forces from other countries took over eastern part of the country. What we are seeing play out gradually could potentially lead to such in the North East, once the Nigerian military and government have no control over other members of the coalition.

    • tundemash

      Cl0wn ….. this is the beginning of the “6 weeks” and your boys’ scout General have started as usual with the blame game. Now Niger army is the issue …… in the past it has been APC, Uited States, South Africa , Buhari ….. soon Awo, Zik and Ojukwu would be blamed for the cowardice Dumbo has infected the Nigerian army !

      If it is to rig election, they are good at that but to fight terrorists , coweards run just as proven by the Nigerien General and as seen on CNN and Lajazeera .

      • taiwo

        shedding tears because the army are now routing your comrades in arms will not save you,pls do the needful and go hug transforner

        • tundemash

          Cl0wn ….. did u read the story upside down ?

          Since when has Nigerien Army become Nigerian army or is it the spelling that is confusing you ?

          This story is about the boys’ scout General Olukolade responding to the Nigerien’s army accusing Nigerian soldeirs of cowardice so where did you get “he army are now routing your comrades in arms” creek rat using fake name ?

        • tundemash

          Creek rat … which army ?

  • Ezra Danjuma Jatau

    It is a known fact that Nigerian soldiers have had to run several times at one time called ‘tactical maneuver’ and some were court marshalled.Its also known that the coalition force had giving Nigerian army more bite.They should therefore bear the shame of the tactical maneuver and forge on rather than attacking an army that has proven its worth.Could it be another attempt to scuttled the activities of the coalition force so that the six weeks will be wasted and more time required? Olukolade and the high ranking officers have not been fair to this country

    • taiwo

      boko sympathizers always looking out for opportunites to allign with your comrades in the bush.your own day of reckoning will soon come

      • Atk Samsung

        Mr Taiwo, na which kind person you be? So the logic of what Ezra pointed out does not make sense to you. For once, forget about the election or about GEJ. Think straight, no sentiments. You just stated in an earlier comment that you feel like a second class citizen in Nigeria simply because Jonathan appear to be on his way out of Aso Rock. In your current state of mind, you are not in a position to see or say the facts clearly.

        • taiwo

          give yourself this same advise and you will realise what you are missing

  • Rommel

    This is the type of government the Goodluck Jonathan administration has produced,is there anyone still in doubt why Goodluck should pack his bag and get out of Aso rock?

    • Delta_Quagmire

      Let the Hausa/Fulani/Kanuri deal with their brain-child, period!

      • Abdul

        Since Jona the drunk cannot deal with them, let him give Hausa/Fulani/Kanuri the chance to deal with BH.

        • taiwo

          that chance will only happen in your dreams.We shall no longer have second class citizens in our country.No tribe is superior to the other and the earlier your paymasters get that into their thick skull the better for them

          • Abdul

            How many of you are the “WE” read my lips, Jonathan is gone already, have you not heard that he has started moving his personal effect to his “ASO ROCK” type house along Abuja airport road? feeling inferior is a mindset, i am not a second class citizen in my country and i feel you should feel like a second citizen in your country, but if you feel to have such feeling then i cant help you.

            Please note that Nigerians have resolved not to reward failure with their votes. This election is bigger than you think. Its not about PDP and APC, its about redeeming our honour, look, even serious PDP members are ready to sacrifice Jonathan to rebuild Nigeria.

            I just hope you are conscious of the reality on ground, you may play to the gallery at your peril.

          • taiwo

            Thats the propaganda they have used to feed your crack infested skull so that you will riot after Buhari’s defeat but this time around the bullets of the armed forces are waiting eagerly for you and your type.fake abdul

          • Abdul

            Lol, Jonathan will lose this election whether he likes it or not, we shall not reward failure with our votes.

          • Atk Samsung

            @taiwo … Inferiority complex is what crossed my mind when I read taiwo post. How’s that possible. How does not having someone that claim to be of my ethnic group as president take away from my person. Even Igbo’s with all the history we know are not expected to feel such (i.e. inferior). My dear, how much value has having Goodluck Jonathan as president added to your life, except if you are lucky to be a PDP politician or government contractor. Then you make me think that Jonathan case is like that of an Hausa boy that got into a university on quota basis (not on pure merit) but came out with a failure, and he kept asking his head of department can change his result to pass or second-class. The result is his handwork.

  • ahmad

    Becos Niger amry wants to finish boko haram and you want to lie against them? We are in support of our army in the battle field but we can’t support a looter in Abuja office, what have they done do you normally think before you talk? No wander you postpone the elections. Now army of a country less then kano in population are saving Nigerians lives.

    • taiwo

      fake ahmad stop posting trash here,we already know that your militant wing(boko) is in dis array and you guys are unhappy

  • Tpolo

    May God curse this useless Nigerian Army officers, you have nothing to offer this country beside killing civilians and diverting funds for training and weapons. Niger, Chad and Cameroon have been doing great job containing BOKO HARAM than the Nigerian army, they did and are doing what Chris Olukolade and his cohorts couldn’t do, and yet they expect to be praised and respected by the armies of Niger,Chad and Cameroon. Beside saluting there is nothing you can do, soon Liberian Army will patrolling the streets of Abuja and Niger Army training the Nigerian Army on how fight insurgency. SHAME ON YOU!

  • terry

    When you are coward,dont expect your piers to respect you.We have already seen Chadian soldiers battle inside Nigeria as if it was their fatherland,some lost their lives in the fight.People of Neighbouring countries are deeply frustrated by the incompetence of the Nigeria gov’t under GEJ and the military. it is this anger that makes them speak up.
    what i donot understand is how this PDP government are so comfortable despite this sad low level they have brought Nigeria to.

    Nigeria cannot afford another four years with this government.

    • abc

      Go get your facts right. Not even a single square metre of Niger is under BH. They attempted to break prison but were badly refelled. Bit what is the story when they attack Nigerian prisons. Let’s just hide our face in shame and let them do what our army can’t do for us. Hopely one day our army will be strong enough to defend the whole of Africa.

  • Wetin Naija

    This is what you get when corruption is everywhere in the system.We have no respect from our neighbors and others alike. We are begging for help from small and poor countries like Chad and Niger to help us fight Boko Haram, we are paying South African warriors to help fight Boko Haram, our military are among the weakest, if not the weakest in the world, but our military officers are the highest earned officers in the world. From the the rank of Lt. Col they are all millionaires through corruption. My Ghanian friend in the US called our military a joke.

  • terry

    This man spends all his time to insult coalition forces.You have insulted Cameroon several times which has lead to the reluctance of Cameroon to engage in the fight more than it should,added to the BH mole generals ofcourse.
    Where is the minister of the foreign affairs,defence and information in all this.Clearly this military donot know their work and limits.

    • Mayowa

      Jonathan and his current military will blame everybody and everyone for their failures. If it is not US then it must be the EU that has refused to sell arms to Nigeria. if it is not opposition then it must be the North who has promised to make the country ungovernable for his government. US and some European countries were in Nigeria to help but they had to leave when it dawn on them that they were dealing with a useless and irresponsible government. Now other West African countries who have volunteered to help are also being blamed by this Jonathan corrupt and incompetent military thieves. The only thing they are good at is to issue threat to INEC over the conduct of election. GMB must investigate these pepper soup Generals immediately he is sworn in come May 29, 2015

    • just a concern citizin

      Its a shame that Nigerian military that was adjudge worldwide as one of the best fighting force is has now been rediculed and insulted. Look at what the corrupt and air condition General has subjected this once admired military to. So many people are not getting the clear pictures as to where the problems lies, I want to state here categorically that the problem is not with foot soldiers or those are the battle Front, it is with government and the so called useless Generals or the military hierachy bcos u can never win a war when the morale of troops are at a maximum low level. you give a soldier a sachet of cowbel chocolate and 50 naira bread for breakfast and u want him to and risk his life for a country that can barely give him good food? Or how do u expect a troop of less than 750 with AK47 to overpower a boko haram strength of 3000 and above with AA assault riffles? Most of tanks and artillery weapons are worn out and stops at will, the jet those not come when expected and most times comes when the damages has already been done only to add to the woes of the soldiers. Those critically injured in the battle field are not promptly and adequately catered for, a lot of widows all over various barracks, unit and formations and yet u expect any sane soldier to put his previous life in the front when it is obvious that when u died in the process your family has nothing to fall back to after three months when of which your salary automatically will stop flowing. The truth of it all is that soldiers are not ready to risk their lives anymore for a country that has no good plans for them. Corruption in the military is going from bad to worse, all what the Generals are good is how to cheat and embezzle funds/money allocated to troops to their own private account, every Nigerian military officers is cheater or a potential one. Soldiers haven’t realised all these dubious and corrupt practices at the top are no longer willing to risk their lives anymore, so until the Generals are being checked and are made to account for every funds allocated to them, until a proper and adequate plans and structures that is aimed at boosting the delapidating moral level of fighting troops (soldiers) are being put in a place, am afraid Nigeria is far from winning this war and we shall continue to see soldiers pulling out

  • Arewabetter

    What has become of the troubled giant called Nigeria? Enough of disgrace and humiliation has been done to Nigeria and Nigerians, especially the Nigerian Armed Forces by neighbouring forces under the rule of PDP. How long and how much of disaster as well as atrocities and calamities can be brought upon Nigerians by the PDP party that has been in government for more than 16 years? Thanks to the Almighty, we now know that PDP is a sinking ship and is totally finished! The time for a thorough change has matured. Have you people watched the PDP video campaign in Kaduna and Jos yet? Did you see the tiny crowd that came to welcome President Goodluck Jonathan on the Kaduna State soil? Because of the disgrace and humiliation, the Nigerian National TV did not show the Kaduna PDP political rally. Probably, only a few hired clowns and thugs appeared at the political rally. Do you people remember when GMB visited Kaduna? There was no enough room to accommodate all his well-wishers. Wait a minute! Goodluck’s staunch supporters will argue that Kaduna is GMB’s home. Common give me a break! In that case, have you watched and compared GMB’s political rally in Jos with that of Goodluck’s yet? Again, there was a massive turn out, which resulted in no space to take in the HUGE crowd that came to welcome GMB. There was even a stampede…. Waoo! This goes on to show, who is really for the TALAKAWAS and that Nigerians are desperately eager for better a NIGERIA headed by GMB! Nigerians are sick and tired of thievery, robbery, embezzlement as well as the practice of tribalism, nepotism, favouritism and so many other negative PDP features. Time for change has finally arrived and I hope this time my fellow Nigerians will not SCREW it up. Vote for change! Vote for the future of your children! Vote for safety and security! Vote for the assurance that your children will have a better future than you do now! Vote for a just and fair Nigeria! Vote for wealth redistribution and end hunger and malnutrition in Nigeria! Defeat the old deal and its reckless spending! Vote out the party that hangs PETTY THIEVES, but appoints the GREAT ONES to public office! What PDP has been doing to Nigerians for the past 16 years reminds me of Tolstoy’s statement, namely, “In order to get power and retain it, it is necessary to love power; but love of power is not connected with goodness but with qualities that are the opposite of goodness, such as pride, cunning and cruelty.” Defeat this wickedness now! PDP has been in power for more than 16 years and during this time all that Nigeria and Nigerians have encountered and experienced is total regress of the nation. May God protect Nigeria and Nigerians from further PDP atrocities and calamities! Amen!!! With PDP in government, Nigeria definitely is heading to self-destruction. The situation in Nigeria reminds of Ntsasa’s poem “MOTHERLAND” which goes as follows:

    In the country of my forefathers,
    Economy is friendless and upset,
    Politics is sleeping with labour,
    Justice is seducing foreign crime,
    Poetry is turned on, but it fears,
    Traditions keep history hostage,
    Religions are attempting suicide,
    Nature is busy biting its tongues,
    Fruits are swearing at their trees,
    Education shows God axis finger,
    Seas get shallow, graves deepen,
    Life confront its first nightmares,
    Death is satisfying its final desire,
    Future is stinking nothing but lies.

        You have just typed a gargantuan nonsense! Who is routing and rounding up the Boko Haram militants? Do you mean the neighbouring armed forces? What a shame and disgrace! Where is the Nigeria that viciously fought for the end of apartheid and made the entire black race proud? Where are the Nigeria Armed Forces, which made Nigerians proud by bringing to an end insurgencies across the African continent? Unfortunately, that Nigeria VANISHED under the poor or non-governance of the PDP. Only the MARCH of GMB to the March 28th presidential election will salvage the nation. GMB, MARCH THEM UP come March the 28th.

      My friend before the involvement of of foreign tropos, your carward soldiers have been running away, so this is no new. And besides the Brig. General that ran from BH with his batallion is not a Northerner, But from SS. So why support bad things, this is the result of corruption, Where is the over $ 68b allocated for our military for the past 4yrs, someone is helping fight your war and telling our soldiers not to run, but stay and fight, you turn around to heap insult on them. This is no APC or PDP, but a clear poor Leadership from our Government

      • Otile

    when buhari was head of state, chad dared to challenge nigeria. the war did not last up to 3 months. chad had to surrender to avoid being annihilated. they had enough scars to tell their tale. now we are depending on chad to fight our battles for us.

    • Otile

      Tchad is not fighting anything for us. What we want is cooperation from them so that they will stop sending jihadists and looters into Nigeria. This is not a regular war, it is a religious war. The military is very sensible they way they are handling the situation. The war is sensitive. If you kill Boko Haram fighters in massive numbers there will be outrage among the Muslims. The best way is to handle the situation gingerly as it is done now.

          Boko Haram is a part of world wide Islamic movement trying to overpower the world and convert all peoples of the world to Islam. It is a powerful and insidious movement funded by wealthy Islamic powers, various parties and brainwashed young men and women ready to give up their lives to achieve the desires of their leaders.

          Here in Nigeria uncountable youths are ready to give up their lives for Islam and Buhari, and you know it.

    The Nigeriens, Cameroonians, Ghanians have the God given right to take a second serious look at the Nigerian army of cowardly imbeciles who clearly have abandoned post at the slightest sound of gunfire.

      Be quiet. Jonathan created this disgrace. None of the nations insulting Nigeria did so under Obasanjo. The last time Cameroon or chad tried such rubbish, General Buhari or President Obasanjo put them in their place.

    • harry

      my friend keep quiet and face truth. what has APC got to do with this? ok now tell me,boko are ram has carried out a fresh attack on Niger and killed many just because they insulted the Nigerian army,is it the APC that asked boko are ram to attack Niger just after few days of insulting the Nigerian army?when OKah said it was GEJ that asked him to carry out the october 1st bomb blast,nobody said anything about it,supposing it was the name of GMB Okah mentioned,i am sure this country would have been divided before now

    • Bishop

      It was APC that used the word ‘Tactical Manoeuvre’ am sure you will say.

    “Some rushed [Premium Times] to the press with the Nigerien gaffe hoping to embarrass our military or government. But nobody will disrespect my Mother!…”
    “ Poor Niger! Treacherous ones amongst us accorded them effrontery to insult our troops to gain bad press. Don’t compromise your Patriotism!..” ——– Gen. Chris Olukolade

    The General is right. Niger & Chad provide endless source of recruits to Boko Haram . A BBC documentary revealed what we already know, that these poor desert elements, like their brothers in Northern Nigeria, enlist to fight after they are promised and given $500 – $1,000 dollars.
    Break up of Nigeria is still the solution. The South is completely different from the North. Northerners are more Chadian & Nigerein than Southern Nigeria. It’s like India & Pakistan…there will always be killings.

    • Bishop

      Finally we have someone who has better plans than what God has for Nigeria. Do you know God made the places u call poor desert and placed the people there? Have you asked yourself why He didn’t place you there? Please don’t go back empty handed.

  • Guguru

    The Nigerian Military does not even believe in Nigeria anymore. The only thing they believe is the dollars they can get out of Nigeria. Even the dollar they can get out of Nigeria is now shrinking in size as the nair falls, interest rates rise, and oil prices stay low or keep falling. Eventually, as the resources get smaller, the military will be back in power to ensure they get the last scrap of dollars they can lay their hands on. Of course, we all know this will be a coup as Obasanjo had predicted. Mr Jonathan will be victim of this coup that is to come because the resources available for corruption is fast dwindling.

  • Ette

    This is clear indication that insurance situation is primed by this wicked government to be worse as excuse to cancel elections. NIGERIANS must insist that none of these wicked PDP people should benefit from any such arrangee killing spree. Enough of this senseless posturing by grossly incompetent GEJ and his cohorts. If NIGERIAN military is not coward why did they run to Cameroon on many occasions, why have they been running away from boko haram thereby allowing them to cat away their weapons. This spokeman has no ground to contest remark from Nigerien military as everyone is aware of the run away NIGERIAN soldiers. See what corrupt GEJ and PDP has brought to NIGERIA. Let us vote them out completely and deliver ourselves from this shame.

      In 8 years, Obasanjo and Atiku built 2 universities for themselves, but in 4 years GEJ and Sambo gave Nigerians 14 brand new universities. WHICH WOULD U VOTE FOR U?
      Vote for the Truth, Let your conscience judge you as you go to the polling booth…. Your vote is for the destiny of your generation..people who were Devils and became Saints overnight because they try to confuse you with lies….

      If they had done better 8 YEARS AGO you will not be where you are now….
      Vote Truth…. Vote Reality…. Vote GEJ… Vote PDP.–AND NOT THE NIGHT SOIL MEN AND JUJU PRIEST IN APC—

        Hahahaha na so. Sadly only Asari has one this time.

      • nas

        Can you give me the proofs of your sole called universities? or what you call universities are the single admin buildings rushly built and placement of sign boards on empty lands? just for political campaigns. It is useless to claim you have 20 universities which can not even stand as one.

        It is not a question of the number of universities but a question of their capacity and capability. Education in Nigeria is by far not what it should be atall. We dont need more universities but we need the ones on ground to be well equipped to be able to produce quality graduates. We dont need universities that will keep on producing someone like GEJ as a PHD graduate.

      • August January

        Spare me that rubbish!!! 14 brand new “glorified secondary schools”! The University of Glasgow, Scotland, where I did my master’s degree, lends up to 40 books to a single student at a time! Go and check the University library website to find out the veracity of my assertion. 40 books at a time! How many universities in Nigeria can lend up to 5 books to a single student at a time? Instead of developing the former universities to world-class standard, we keep founding new ones and ultimately turn all of them to “glorified secondary schools”. Is that an achievement?

    Buhari And Wicked Wife.

    Buhari Borrowing N27Million for APC nomination form, while Billionaire Wife announced donating N130Million.

    Who are the Buharis’ deceiving? The dubious couple. We don’t want dubious people as our leaders.
    Muhammadu Buhari is the presidential candidate of the Nigerian first Islamic Party, APC.

    Say No to Fraudsters, Say No to Buhari and his wife

    • Guguru

      I bet you have never heard of men whose integrity would not allow them take a dime from their wife, have you? So, what cave did you come from if you have never heard of such? I know you will soon be integrated with humanity so that you may be more privy to the typical human constructs we are all used to. We have faith in you.

    • taewo

      Are you sick? What has Buhari’s wife got to do with this story?

    • metson

      What do you gain from your so call christian party, you should learn to know the difference between the bad and the good and not sentiment my brothet

    • August January

      You’re ignorant! There are thousands, if not millions, of charities, trusts and organizations around the world who are always ready to support such donations, especially when they know you as well as your foundation is genuine and sincere. Go and ask those who run nongovernmental organizations (NGOs); they will tell you.

  • Some supporters of PDP are going mad now. Their madness has extended to Buhari’s wife. PDP is a loser.

    These are really trying times for Nigeria and the Armed forces. Poor nigeriens? We shall overcome! This is a lesson in not tackling a problem decisively early. We shall overcome

  • kingbaabu

    Twitter general, well done. Soldier life must be really rough in your arm chair and air-conditioned office twitting away on your computer.

  • WholeTruth

    Hausa/Fulani and Kanuri officers and soldiers in the Nigerian Army are not helping.
    They are the ones suspected as 5th columnists in the Nigerian Armed Forces.
    The earlier this inconvenient truth is confronted the better for Nigeria’s security.
    Muslims in the armed forces are undermining the fight against Boko Haram.

    • Veracity

      That’s the whole truth my brother.

    • Khadijat

      ‘Muslims in the armed forces are undermining the fight against Boko Haram’….it is no wonder you did not sign in with an identifying form as u seem to be very flagrant with absolute hogwash. Now it is the Muslims that want to ensure BH continues to slaughter them in droves and wreck their lives and those of their children? By what evidence do you spout such statements. What motive can you factually ascribe to these Muslim soldiers you so carelessly malign? Indeed this desperation to give a dog a bad name just so you can oversee its hanging has gone far enough. We North Easterners and Muslims see very clearly the disinterest this failed Government has in rooting out the BH menace and the glee with which you christians bandy your thoughtless words. Rest assured there is no might or power except with Allah the most High the victorious. He is enough to solve not just the calamity of BH, but that of the unjust ruler and the hypocrite. Ours is now to embrace patience as he anwers our prayers. For you My advice is simple, Either speak good or be silent.

  • Sams

    Can Olukolade deny that Nigerian soldiers run away from BH???

    • Tunji Olarewaju

      And that these same soldiers are most efficient against unarmed, peaceful civilians?

  • Depreiye Adrian

    Malo cowards, they can’t stand and face the reality by harbouring BH, even when they used them as their allies they shall be crushed no peace for the wicked. Victory is ours Victoria Ascerta

  • akin-UK

    I hope people are looking beyond all these altercations? Is this the regional cooperation army that will uproot the Boko Haram? Is this the one that will make the difference between the security situation before Feb 14 and before Mar 28?

    One can see the seriousness this govt attaches to arresting the situation for safety before March 28; the real reason(s) for election postponement will soon dawn on all Nigerians. Let us all continue to dream on.

  • August January

    Oh my God!!! Tell me this is not true. Is this happening to Nigeria, the giant of Africa? Is this not part of the coalition forces that Jonathan and his NSA said would defeat Boko Haram in 6 weeks? Oh Nigeria! How come you’re now a dwaft in Africa, that wretched people of Niger now taunt you at will? Jonathan and his NSA and the present military authorities have finished this country! Trust me, with another 4 years of Jonathan in Aso Rock, Nigeria will be history, because it’s clear that as things stand now Niger or Chad could easily overrun and decimate the Nigerian Army within few hours! Nigerians, it’s high time we left blind partisanship behind us. There’s need for serious and urgent intervention in the management of the affairs of this country, both politically and militarily. Now I know the truth in the saying that when the head of fish rots, it spreads to the whole body!

  • Otile

    We don’t see how Buhari is going to fight corruption with an oluwole school certificate. It is a disgrace on Nigeria.

  • Amang Raymond

    This is what you get when you allow foreign militaries to operate within your borders. We have shamed ourselves as a nation and should hide our heads. No Nigerian has a right to call Nigeria the giant of Africa. What makes you a giant?
