Nigerian Army: Sahara Reporters working for Boko Haram
« on: December 27, 2014, 07:58:12 PM »

Nigerian Army authorities yesterday accused an online media, Sahara Reporters, of working for the Boko Haram terror sect.

In a statement issued by its director of public relations, Brigadier Olaleye Lajide, the Nigerian Army dismissed a story published on the website of the medium where it alleged that a serving officer, Lt Col Wende, petitioned its hierarchy.

?It is noteworthy but unfortunate that Sahara Reporters has committed itself to support terrorism and fight Nigeria, its people, its military and particularly the Nigerian Army.

?Before Sahara Reporters published their purported document described as petition from Lt Col Wende, a serving commanding officer, the Nigerian Army conducted a thorough investigation on the document involving other security and intelligence gathering agencies.

?The process confirmed that the serving officer was not the author of the petition,? the Army stated.

The statement added that at a press conference in Maiduguri, the officer involved, Wende, disassociated himself from the petition and Sahara Reporters which published the story was not only absent but went to discredit the officer, describing him as ?unverified?

It is, however, expected that the Sahara Reporters publisher will, in his usual self, provide a thorough rejoinder to the grave allegation by the Nigerian Army.
