“The first and greatest of all privileges of a Brother is to be a Brother; to have accepted the Law, to have become free and independent, to have destroyed all fear, whether of custom, or of faith, or of other men, or of death itself. In other papers the joy and glory of those who have accepted The Book of the Law as the sole rule of life is largely, though never fully, explained; and we will not here recapitulate the same.”

Boko Haram Planning Major Attack On Maiduguri

Fleeing residents of Monguno, another Borno State?s town that was seized by Boko Haram terrorists on Saturday have said that the insurgents are planning to attack towns and villages around Maiduguri before launching a major offensive against the capital city.

One of the fleeing residents and an Internally Displaced Person (IDP), Aisha Ba?malum, stated this when she arrived in Maiduguri yesterday. Aisha, mother of three children, managed to arrive in Maiduguri after running in the bush for two days.

Aisha and other IDPs informed LEADERSHIP at the outskirts of Maiduguri along Monguno Road that the Boko Haram terrorists would only spare aged men and women and kill males ranging between ages of 45 and 15 years, while girls that attain the age of puberty would be forcefully taken away.

She said, ?When they were shooting and killing people in Monguno, they told us to inform our husbands that they were only fleeing to their big grave called Maiduguri and by the time they forced all of us into the city, they said they would then attack the town en mass.

?They have killed so many men that was why most of our husbands had to flee and leave us behind because in most cases they don?t touch women and our children. Any woman who probably dies may have been killed by stray bullet or exhaustion while running.

?But many men and young men from the ages of 15 were killed in the town while fleeing in the bush. Many soldiers were also killed, we saw them with their uniforms. They took many of our young girls of puberty age as well as some young women who were married too?.

A teacher and local politician in Monguno, Girgiri Muhammed, said some members of the Boko Haram gunmen were heard saying that, ?since your President Goodluck Jonathan came to Maiduguri and escaped our attack, we would deal with you his servants before we will finish those in Maiduguri?.

A security official in Maiduguri who sought anonymity because he was not authorised to speak on the matter, told LEADERSHIP last night that should the Boko Haram take possession of the artillery and other long range arms, Maiduguri and its residents may be attacked.

He said, ?There is urgent need for a counter offensive against Boko Haram members now than ever before; because the barracks they have taken in Monguno is a whole brigade where there are various sizes and shapes of weapons including artillery guns which has the capacity of firing for hundreds of kilometres. If Boko Haram wants to attack Maiduguri, they may not necessarily even enter Maiduguri town before they could do that; that is why some of us who understand this keep saying that the worst that could happen is the fall of Monguno barracks?

Arrest Tompolo, Dokubo, others now ? Danjuma
« Reply #1 on: January 29, 2015, 04:29:37 PM »
Former Defence Minister, General Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma (Ret), has called for the arrest of Asari Dokubo, High Chief Government Ekpemupolo, General Boyloaf and others over recent war threats by the ex-Niger Delta militants.
 
General Danjuma, who spoke to reporters at the permanent site of multi-billion naira North-West University, Kano, said the drumbeats of war by the Niger Delta militants was highly irresponsible.
 
He said:  ?Those were reckless statements coming from irresponsible individuals; they should be condemned and be arrested immediately?.
The ex-militants had at a  meeting with Bayelsa State governor, Seriake Dickson, at the Government House, Yenagoa, weekend, threatened to declare war against the country in the event that President Jonathan loses his re-election bid.
 
Danjuma, who refused to comment on the inaction of the President over the drumbeat of war by his kinsmen, condemned Nigerian politicians for sacrifing issues-based campaign for slander.
 
Danjuma, also a former Chief of Army Staff, however, cautioned on the need to reverse current trends where politicians were having a field day denigrating one another in the build-up to the general elections, pointing out that such unwholesome practice was counter-productive to democracy.
 
General Danjuma commended Kwankwaso over the infrastructure development of Kano State, adding that the legacy was worth emulating by other stakeholders in the polity.
 
He also identified lack of continuity as the bane of Nigeria?s infrastructure development and appealed to successive administrations at each tier of government to embrace continuity in collective interest of the nation.
 
?Governor Kwankwaso is leaving behind a lasting and enduring legacy for Kano and we hope his successor would consolidate on the gains,? Danjuma said.
