B’Haram writes Army, threatens to attack Maiduguri barracks

The members of the Boko Haram Sect have written to the 7th Division of the Nigerian Army threatening to attack Maimalari Barracks on Friday (today), Punch reports. Read full report below...
Investigations revealed that security had been beefed up in the Maimalari Barracks which has the Headquarters of the 7th Infantry Division of the Artillery Corps, the Ordinance, the Signal and other crucial units of the Army in Maiduguri.
It was gathered that while security agents saw the letter as a ploy to instill fear into security operatives, all efforts were being made to ward off any attack on the foremost military formation in the North-East.
A source said that the insurgents might have compelled one of the drivers to get the letter to the military of their plan to attack the barracks.
The source said that the letter was written in Hausa Language.

“Yesterday, the Boko Haram sect wrote that they would attack the Maimalari Barracks. They wrote the letter in Hausa Language to give the notification of their coming.
“However, security operatives are praying for them to come to the barracks. The barracks is the biggest; it is the cantonment in Maiduguri.
“The barracks accommodates, the 7th Infantry Division, the Artillery, Ordinance, Engineering, Signal and other corps.
“People are even surprised how they got the letter to the barracks; one cannot rule out intimidation of one of the drivers to get the letter to the barracks.
“Soldiers are on the red alert. There are many soldiers there who are waiting for the attack. Soldiers are battle ready,” the source said.

The current threat is coming barely after the Boko Haram sect launched an attack on Giwa Barracks, the Headquarters of the 21 Artillery Brigade on March 15, 2014.
Authoritative military sources said that over 350 insurgents were killed in that attack while some soldiers were injured. A soldier was also said to have lost four children to the attack.
Our correspondent also gathered that the Special Forces had taken over the Gwoza Hills believed to be one of the strongest hideouts of the sect in the North-East.

Investigations revealed that the Special Forces stormed the Gwoza Hills and killed several insurgents in a combined operation with the men of the Nigerian Air Force on Wednesday.
The source said that a soldier was killed in the attack while some others were injured.
“There was an encounter in Gwoza Hills. Troops have taken over the place; it was another fierce encounter.

“A soldier was killed and some others were wounded. On the part of the insurgents, I can’t give you the exact casualty figure because the Air Force was involved and bombs were used.
“Gwoza Hills is one of their strong points. The Boko Haram took over the entire place before the battle but soldiers have taken over the place and have captured some of their arms and ammunition.
“That place is one of their main operational bases; corpses are smelling there. It is a joint operation involving the Air Force and others.
“The insurgents hide under the hills to launch attacks. It takes over three hours to climb to the top of the hills in some cases. The hills are massive,” the source said.

All this can only come to an end with the intervention of our Sovereign God. Is it that we don't know how to pray or what is happening in this country?

hrm paul ojeih said...

Linda i am so disappointed in boko haram are they loosing their steam and energy in going head on with our army imagine these rascals writing the Nigerian army one of the biggest and strongest armed forces on Africa its obvious they are loosing the battle rubbish instead of writing let them just attack cowards who tell his enemy am coming to kill u prepare and wait for me only cowards do that

Kelly Babatunde said...

I have a strong feeling that these insurgents are begining to lose this battle and also greatly depleted in strenght, zeal and number. The letter seems like a threat/diversion 'cos they don't usually write or notify before they launch their attacks. However, the military should be vigilant not only at maiduguri barracks alone but also other potential target areas.

DAJ da BLACKNESS said...

Linda, I'll so much Appreciate if you can get an exclusive from the chief of Army staff and the minister for Defense on why boko haram still operate successfully in Nigeria.

don't ask too much questions ooo. if u do, they will use corner corner to deceive us. just simply ask them to give 1 reason why boko haram still exists in Nigeria.just 1 reason.lets see if their answers wouldn't befit them to be fired and branded as incompetent!!!

The only redemption they will get,will be to own up to the fact that the govt is timid to make all dis go away. i pray that one of them in power loose their loved one's to this boko haram insurgents. then we'll see what step to take. Or have we heard that Borno state governors villa was burnt down by the insurgents? NO! But they can write letter to an Army barrack!Shiooor!!!

SIMPLYCOCK said...

I tell you why it appears the Nigerian government led by President Goodluck Jonathan is practically prostrate in its effort to rout Boko Haram:
The Islamist terror sect has infiltrated not just the military rank and file or indeed the entire gamut of the country’s security system; it also enjoys massive sympathies among a huge segment of the country’s security apparatus.
This segment of the nation’s security establishment is predominantly constituted by Hausa Fulani Muslims.
They form a hushed dissident group within the country’s security network and make up Boko Haram’s eyes and ears, nay the terror group’s intelligence unit within the army, SSS, police, air force, navy, etc.
This rank of fifth columnists constitutes Boko Haram’s remote guide and the basis of the group’s successful launch of unremitting attacks on innocent citizens and even military institutions.
This is also why the security establishment in the northeast is phlegmatic and bereft of agility when occasion demands their prompt response to incidents of Bako Haram attacks.
The point is: the best of efforts by the nation’s security network to rein in Boko Haram is being sabotaged from within.
And the sabotage is quantum, considering that the Hausa-Fulani number in the nation’s security establishment is not less that 70 per cent, many of whom can’t wait to see a return of the good old days when the north held the rest of the country under its charge, albeit by military jackboots.
Thus they nurse sympathies for Boko Haram, believing they’re championing the northern-Islamic cause
Apparently therefore the real enemy here is not so much the external Boko Haram as it is their internal quislings and sympathisers within the military rank and file.
A mutiny of sorts is at the background, I feel.
Unfortunately, while the Boko Haram enjoys massive infiltration in the nation’s security industrial-complex, I doubt if same could be said of the Nigerian military that they’ve succeeded in infiltrating the Islamist sect.
The Boko Haram is also enjoying massive support from the political opposition, which admires the fact that the sect’s activities are in cahoots with their cause to unseat the Jonathan government.
Therefore, the political opposition can only but pay lip service to demands for an end to their onslaught.
Against this background, I doubt if the Jonathan government can win the war against Boko Haram, not when the political opposition is alive and well.
What’s the chance that the government can wholesomely purge the nation’s security establishment of quislings without gravely offending the Hausa-Fulani who may be quick to pass the move as ethnic cleansing and persecution, with the attendant implications on electoral fortunes?
Only if Nigerians would be patient, without prejudice to government’s all-out effort to intelligently combat the terrorists, I doubt if Boko Haram can outlast the inauguration of a new government on May 29, 2015, as they would have outlived their purpose of winning Aso Rock back for their sponsors.
