Boko Haram Back With Drones

By - - [ Politics ]

A couple of days ago it was reported that the dreaded Islamic sect terrorising the north eastern part of Nigeria have upgraded their armoury with drones, this doesn't sound good as they have already started carrying out air raids on our poorly equipped soldiers.

For over a decade our troops have failed to flush out the insurgents, in fact we have always won the war on social media but in reality our troops are no match to the insurgents. In Borno state for instance our troops control only four out of the ten zones that make up the state.

2019 has been the worst year so far in terms of national security, it has gotten to a point whereby the news of people getting killed no longer comes to us with the natural wave of shock it ought to carry. 

The news of terrorist drones in our own land has got me thinking, how on earth did a terrorist group bring in war drones, execute air combat training and even launched air raids across various military camps?, the emergence of an air wing of the Islamic sect to me means a possible expansion of their activities to the other parts of the country. 

I personally think we should reconsider what we believe to be their philosophy of operation, if its only about implementation of the Sharia across the country and the ban of Western education why then do they attack poor communities with no schools even?, why do they attack mosques and communities in sharia controlled territories?. 

The war ravaging the north east is a mixture of Islamic extremism and political interests. The limited  action of our pot bellied generals and the deliberate supply of inferior weapons to our troops connotes conspiracy between the insurgents and some political elements in power. So long as the insurgents continue to grow in strength and decimate our troops, our annual security budgets are bound to increase by billions, that's the game.

It's obvious the Nigerian government are not fighting to win this war but to sustain it, sign of more billions every year and send more innocent south Christian soldiers to their early grave, this war is a double edged sword serving various purposes at a time. 

If things have gotten to a point of drones being controlled in our nation by terrorists, then we are in for serious trouble.

This book haram terrorist group of a thing has been the biggest terrorist group disturbing the citizens of Nigeria and still yet it has not been eradicated rather it is increasing day by day. Our innocent soldiers are sent to war by the selfish and dishonest generals just to get them killed for their family. I really think this book haram of a thing is a project that is been financed by our potbellied politicians. May God help us.

Drones you say. Are the government trying to wipe out every Nigerians. I personally think the govt doesn't know what they are doing. Every armed force you see around his either carrying AK-47 or a tear gas lunchers which are so outdated. The military needs to be well equipped to fight thus battle.

We really need intervention from our foreign allies like the UK, US, Germany and France to fight and defeat this scourge called Boko Haram. Was it the former president, Goodluck Jonathan, or this president Buhari who once said that they know the northern politicians behind boko haram and yet nothing has been done so far to expose them? Who else would be supplying these extremists sophisticated weapons if not powerful people in high places? Shamefully, we have leaders who have no regard for human life except theirs and their loved ones. I wish the UN deputy D.G, our very own Amina Muhammed will raise a rallying cry for foreign powers to show concern and maybe place sanctions on this country so as to help put this gravely disturbing matter to bed once and for all.

Let the truth be told, all this going back and forth in the name fighting insurgency, Islamic organisation and politics make one's stomach to feel stale and gummy.

How can one tell me that a group can bring a nation almost to it's knees. What are we going to tell our children of what we did collectively, even the civil society.

If they can or could bring in armoured tanker, what is the sizebog a drone.

We are all toying with this great nation and I hope and believe that since we can not tell ourselves the truth, let's pray that God in His infinite mercy will hear us and save us. God bless Nigeria.

The problem is that this so called insurgents are backed up by those in power and in government if not how would they get such sophisticated weapons. The government is divided against itself and whatever that is divided against itself cannot stand.

Nigeria government and security agencies are playing games with this issue of Boko Haram. The so called best arm force in Africa , Nigeria soldier can not stop Boko Haram. After taking our money,they they'll come back to tell us that they have defeated Boko Haram technically. We're in trouble. I think we need to organize ourselves and defend our selves.

This boko haram of a thing is getting worst day by day and i expect our security to be more stronger the more but in a nation like this when our security didn't get government support fully automatically there must be a fow play, since those who are sponsoring the insurgents did not relent i don't expect our government to just feel relaxed

If ain't for the corruption in Nigeria. Nigerian govt has all the arms and all the power to stop Boko Haram right from the scratch! 

But it is within our leaders that this Boko Haram terrorist group is been engineered. Our soldiers are stronger than American soldiers,and yet,we can't stop Boko. Look at how our brothers and sistess are been killed every day (soldiers). Let us all rise up and revolt against this. If we the youth lead a successful revolution,I think this corruption in Nigeria will stop.

There is cabal in the army formation, someone must have supply them with drones. This government needs to step up their effort. Nigeria government are less concrrn ed since it's not their family involved. Buhari should have change the security chiefs and enable see another good development. But buhari is adamant.

Boko haram terrorize with drone, that’s a very bad news for our security, because our soldiers are yet to have such a technology and a group of terrorize that we’ve been battling with for years so. I think the Nigeria military should really respond to this very fast

KONDUGA, Nigeria — Ten-year-old Abdul stood on a dirt road in a village tucked between millet fields and pulled up his shirt. A fresh scar stretched lengthwise down his stomach — the result of a suicide bombing by Boko Haram in June that sent shrapnel tearing through his belly.

The question is who is giving them?. Let us face the fact, this terrorist group has been in existence in Nigeria for years now, and they have not been defeated, instead they are growing stronger and showing up everywhere with ammunitions heavier than even our military's own?. We need to face the facts that some politicians are sponsoring this group just to make sure peace doesn't reign in the country. The government claims they are fighting boko haram which is not true because if they are truly fighting this terrorists, they would have been defeated by now, so which makes us think that there is something fishy somewhere which all of us do not realise. If boko haram is starting to use drones by now, God knows what will happen next which is a bad threat on our security. May God help this Nation.

The main problem I have with Nigeria is that our level of security measures are very poor,most of these foreign countries,u can never take anything like drones into their country without them noticing,so why is Nigeria situation always different.

I wonder how our soldiers can fight well armed Boko Harams with their week weapons. Everyday, innocent and young lives are destroyed in the name of defending the father land. How can one fight a well sophisticated group with bare hands. If only Nigeria Government will value life, things will be right and our soldiers will not die anyhow.

I have always known that this war is not just what they claim it is. I've noticed so many insincere things happening round this issue for a long time now. Certain groups or sects seems to be fighting themselves in a war ordinsry people wont comprehend. This war is taking a tour on us as a nation. Otherwise, how on earth will these things be happening amist claims by the FG of tighting security in the country?

      Boko Haram ought to have been eradicated by now. It makes me wonder,what is our government doing? In a country as rich as ours,our soldiers who are supposed to defend the country are no even properly equipped? Innocent soldiers die everyday while the government just sits there doing nothing. May God help us all

I suggest this is a religion war nothing else, our government in power is a Muslim and he has been keeping quit on this without serious intervention. Most of the Nigerian army killed by the insurgent are Christians but no serious action on this. God please come to our aid

We are worst than Sodom and Gomorrah, we pray for peace and some people still go out there to carry out the bad act we're praying against ,more painful thing there is that our so called leaders are the ones sponsoring this deadly act.  What a wicked world and they fail to realize that this world is only for a while everything shall surely pass away and we will go to answer for our crimes.. . May God help us.  God bless Nigeria and the people who inhabits in it.

You are right. Nigeria is really in for serious trouble with this latest development. If you ask me, I would also tell you that this isn't a religious war rather it is being carried out on the interested of some government officials who want to have their selfish interests at all costs. Nigeria is really in trouble

Nigeria is in big trouble unless we wake up and we quicker reaslize rhe level of threat this terrorist are posing. They are no just bandits or thugs that are oprating without plan or missions. These people are terrorizing many countries not juat Nigeria. We are the onlu Country fighting them like bandits or thugs. We need to unleash the full power of Nigeria force on the. Not just the Army but all the forces we can lay our hands on. This is the only way we can drive them out of our home.

For Boko Haram to be able to have drones, I think there are unseen hands behind this insurgency, who do not want this war to be over quickly. I will call these unseen hands war profiteers.

Well there's a high possibility that the high ranking members of government are behind this attacks on northern state by boko haram members. Believe it, i have also wondered how they get their ammunitions into the country.

All we can hope for now is that if it is the government that is controlling them for their selfish gain or if truly boko haram are serious terrorist organisation it is our hope that it ends soon.

I am no more counting Boko haram members as been Muslim, they are not, they just a group of some foreign alliance together with our bad politicians. If they are a Muslim we are bombing mosques? Why are they killing Muslim? Why there work was restricted to the north alone.? 

This is just something that was meant to just brain Wash Nigerian! How do they get their weapons? Are they digging it from ground.?

If Boko haram has now metamophosed to a more sophiscated way by using drones then we are in a serious denger including the president and the entire Aso Rock. If the Nigerian Airforce can not take control of the Nigerian airspace thereby allowing the insurgent to occupy the area that is supposed to be cotrolled by them, then one has to seriously think twice.

Nigeria's government should provide adequate funding to the security of the citizens of this country.  They should as well provide the military men with more sophisticated armours to against and overcome the terrorist. Our military men should be trained on innovative technologies that can reveal the hideout of the bokoharam. With adventure of Odeon technology in their operations they can easily capture the insuggience with little efforts.
