Nigerian Army Says It's Not Their Duty To Expose Boko Haram Sponsors

The Nigerian Army says it is not its duty to expose sponsors of the Boko Haram insurgents.









At a media briefing on Thursday, John Enenche, coordinator of defence media operations, said although the army is aware that some groups are being sponsored, its duty is to defeat “terrorism and other criminality”.


Enenche said it is the responsibility of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) and the Department of State Services (DSS) to find out and disclose the identities of those sponsoring the criminal groups.


“The kind of weapons these terrorists are using like the gun truck and other sophisticated weapons are expensive and how much are they stealing to procure those arms, that have to say that they are sponsored and heavily funded,” he said.


“But like I said, it is not the duty of the military to uncover the sponsors. Our duty is to remain in the frontline and defeat terrorism and other criminality and that is what we are doing.


“We have the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) and the Department of State Security (DSS), it is their responsibility to gather intelligence on the sponsors of the terrorist sand not the military.”


On why the military is yet to invade the Sambisa forest, Enenche said troops are trying to avoid collateral damage that may result from “total bombardment of the forest”.


He said some civilians collaborate with insurgents in the area and this makes it difficult for troops to carry out major attacks on identified locations.


He, however, noted that the army has made tremendous successes in the fight against insecurity.

  1. How can you defeat what you can't expose? There's an old saying if you expose evil, it will stop or go away. Obviously, they are feeding fat on it so I am not surprise hearing this thrash from them.

    1. TJ, I think the being sponsoqed by the Islamist extremist. Else, how do you explain the reckless attack on the Christian parts of the north. The attack on the muslims is just jo cause distractiion from their agenda. This man knows the sponsor and they are the pple at the corridors of power. .... theyll come for him!

  4. It's very unfortunate that these sponsors are not being named or mentioned. Even PDP's government did not mention them knowing who these sponsors were. This is why defeating the terrorists is difficult. These sponsors are no other than people in government using money for development to destabilize the country. Other sponsors include wealthy business men. The last is external influence and every hand is pointing at Iran.

  8. But it’s not their duty. Every parastatal / agency has its function. It’s not the responsibility of the Army to investigate crime or sponsors of crime - they are neither detectives nor intelligence officers. Even if they come about that information in the course of their activities, they ought to pass it on to the responsible agency for thorough investigation. It’s those agencies and the executive that can reveal/prosecute the people.
    I don’t think what he said is technically out of place.
