Boko Haram Is Now Stealing Arms From The Military – Ali Ndume

The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Army, Senator Ali Ndume has come out to say that Boko Haram is using stolen military arms to terrorize Nigerians.

He recently revealed this on Channels TV, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, however, the heat is presently on the terrorist group because the new army command is stepping up effort to rid the North-East of insurgency and other criminal activities in the country.

He added that out of the terrorist group’s desperation to hold territories, they actually resorted to stealing arms from security forces, but that will never be allowed to continue.

His words, “The insurgents, too, now are desperate in getting arms and ammunition and the arms they use are the ones they succeeded in carting away from Nigerian soldiers and other security forces.”

“I know that small arms are coming from Libya and Chad but the bulk of equipment they use are the ones they succeeded in stealing from our armed forces.”

“It is not really true that they (Boko Haram) have taken over communities in the North-East region but there are some communities the insurgents’ attack and they hold on to them because of the insufficient number of soldiers that are there.”

“Like the experience, we had in Damask and Geidam recently; the same thing happened in Mainok where soldiers had to withdraw tactfully and came back with reinforcement, and they succeeded.”

“Now before then, it is natural for the insurgents to hold on like they did in Geidam and even after, they went to preach to the people.”

“The moment they integrated into the community, the Nigerian Air Force became incapacitated because they had nowhere to bomb noticing that they will have to cause collateral damage.”

“But it is not like they hold on to a particular place permanently, no! What insurgents do is ‘hit and run.’ Like now, the heat is on, with the new army command stepping up effort and putting heat on them.”

“The insurgents too, now are desperate in getting arms and ammunition and the arms they use are the ones they succeeded in carting away from Nigerian soldiers and other security forces.”

“I know that small arms are coming from Libya and Chad but the bulk of equipment they use are ones they succeeded in stealing from our armed forces.”

“This is what the forces are trying to guard against. I believe in the Army which I am working with closely now.”

“Let’s give Nigerian Army what they need to end insurgency and other forms of criminality in a short possible time.”

“That way, we give them a timeline and if they don’t do it, we can show them the way out.”
