Boko Haram

Amnesty international had just released a 133 pages alleging the Nigerian army of killing more than 7,000 people in military detention due to starvation, overcrowding torture and denial of medical assistance and 1,200 people had been executed extrajudicially. 


The secretary general of Amnesty International,  Salil Shetty said :

The previous Nigerian administration's utterly callous 'see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil' attitude when it comes to the hundreds of stories of death coming out of the military detention centers beggars belief.

The military's actions at the detention camps are part of a "witch hunt" in an effort to locate and fight members of Boko Haram, who threaten the security of the nation.

Salil Shetty is urging the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to investigate any possible crimes against humanity committed at the camps and to bring justice to the victims of violent crime.

The Muslim terrorist group, Boko Haram has been fighting the country to establish an Islamic caliphate in the Northeast of the country, killing thousands of Nigerians and 1.5million people displaced.

In a video released by Amnesty International, the group accused the military of using a "pointer"  who points Boko Haram members from a long queue of men, the military then torture such individual or take him to their prison where they had tagged "Guantanamo" or another prison they call "Resting place". 

Some top military official has been said to have known all this happening, but instead have turned a blind eye. Some of these military officials were mentioned in the video and Amnesty International is calling for them to be brought to justice.

The group have submitted the pages to the Nigeria president, Muhammadu Buhari, who acknowledged the documents and promised to look into it soon.

The Nigeria president, Muhammadu Buhari in his first international trip after inauguration to Niamey, Niger Republic has said he is confident that the Nigerian army is capable of eradicating the terrorist group Boko Haram from Nigeria.


Speaking with journalists at the interactive session after meeting with President Issoufou Mahamadou of Niger, President Buhari said the country's military remains a virile fighting force and has earned his good reputation across the world.

The president said in the 5 hour meeting he held with heads of Nigeria’s Armed Forces and Security Agencies yesterday, the ongoing operation against Boko Haram were reviewed. 

Because of the peculiarities of terrorism, and movement of terrorists across borders and the unconventional nature of the war against terror, Nigeria needs the support of their neighbouring countries. The president said that the visit to Niger is to seek more support from the country to end terrorism in the country.

The president also said he plans to hold the same meeting with the Chad counterpart after leaving Niamey on Thursday.

The President  said Nigeria would also require the assistance of other nations and multi-lateral institutions to rebuild areas that had been adversely affected by the Boko Haram insurgency and rehabilitate displaced persons.

In the opening of the bilateral talks between Niger and Nigeria, President Buhari praised Niger republic for their contributions to the on-going multi-national effort against terrorism, insurgency and cross-border crimes. He said :

Permit me also to acknowledge the consistency with which the government and people of Niger Republic have stood beside Nigeria under all circumstances. I would like to convey the appreciation of Nigeria for the sacrifices by Niger in the on-going efforts to counter the menace of the Boko Haram insurgency.

My administration will bring new impetus and a renewed commitment to the efforts to wipe out the menace of the Boko Haram insurgents. As a first step, we have directed the relocation of the command post of the counter-insurgency operations to Maiduguri until such a time that the insurgency is completely defeated.

Another issue of concern to us which is closely associated with the insurgency in the region is the influx of refugees and other displaced persons. We are aware that currently, there are over one hundred and fifty thousand displaced persons comprising refugees and returnees taking refuge in various parts of Niger.

Our administration will work closely with governments of the affected States to continue to provide humanitarian assistance to the displaced persons and their host communities.

The ultimate objective however, remains to end the insurgency and facilitate their return to their homes

President Issoufou Mahamadou of Niger commended President Buhari for coming first to Niger after his inauguration. He told President Buhari that:

   Your decision to move the military command of Nigeria to the North-East has further strengthened our conviction that the war against terrorism will soon come to an end.

The leader of the Vigilante group, Madu Plungwa said that the operation was successful because the Boko Haram members travelling in a Toyota Hilux van had stopped at a fish farm to eat and drink before moving to the Yobe and Adamawa border.

“The fleeing insurgents were ambushed at this fish farm when they stopped to refuel and eat roasted fish on the farm. As some of them relaxed, five hunters, who have taken strategic positions near the fish farm, opened fire at them and killed 29 in the exchange of gunfire.

Though some of the Boko Haram members escaped, but all had gunshot wounds as they flee the scene of the attack.

The fleeing insurgents were desperate to escape, because most of them have run out of arms and ammunitions, which they used to attack various towns and villages in Borno and Adamawa states" Madu Plungwa said

Confirming the incident, Borno state police command confirmed the clash and said the clash happened between Boko Haram insurgents and the local vigilante group in the area, but not much information can be given to reporters until the DPO submit the security report of the area, the command told reporters.




There is a camp in Northern Nigeria, where you can take your pick of different orphans displaced by Boko Haram for 500 USD (100,000 Naira).The children are bought without no paper works or questions asked, and nobody cares what happened to the kids after they leave the camps. The man who runs the camp lies under the disguise that the money is for what he called "Suggested donation".

                       Boko Haram

You can select a boy or girl, young or old. The man said nothing needs to be done, he just needs to give the order or "green light" for the kids to be with whoever pays for them. The fostering or suggested donation in this camp is illegal because the children are displaced by Boko Haram and had to flee the country.

Most of these kids are orphans and with vulnerable kids like this, they might end up in Boko Haram camps or child soldiers to blow up some other locations or another generation of young Boko Haram.
