"Boko Haram menace is not a war the army can easily win" - Alao-Akala

Former Oyo state governor Adebayo Alao-Akala in an interview with Vanguard says the army with all its sophistication can not easily win the battle against Boko Haram. He said this while responding to questions about the state of insecurity in Nigeria and what should be done to arrest the threatening situation
"With due respect to the army, no matter how sophisticated the army is, this is not a war they can easily win. It is one that everybody has to participate in order for the nation to win. What they should do is to make sure the police are well equipped to face the challenge. If you see when they started they first of all scared away the police. They are attacking police station all over the place just to scare them. And they allowed police to be scared by bringing in army, no! They should have fortified the police by giving them more money and vital equipment to enable them to face these people. The police are more widespread in this country than the army. We have police post in every locality, but soldiers are not everywhere. If you remember, at the commencement of the civil war, there was what they called police action first, but when they felt the police could not deliver, they brought in the army. Right now, there is a department in the police called CIB, Civil Intelligence Bureau. The CIB will gather intelligence report, which will not be sent to anywhere but used within the immediate environment and action taken immediately based on the intelligence gathered and analysed by the officers. If the police are in charge, they would send intelligence officers to mingle with the areas they consider as Boko Haram black spots to be able to gather vital information in dealing with them. So, my suggestion is that the police should be brought in; army should be in the background. Why we have mobile policemen is because of this type of situation, MOPOL is a sort of para-military and they are well armed and well trained to face this type of a threat to the society". he said

Well! He has a point. But then again u have to consider so many tins. Our police to me is more mediocre in nature. They cant even do the job of protecting de citizens and are de more hungry ones. For the police to be involved den they shouldnt involve all of dem. A special unit for it should be created. We dont want a situation whereby the police will start begging for 20naira from Boko Haram members just to eat. I'm out ***CATCH ME IF U CAN***

Unknown said...

He has a point... The police should not only be equipped but also gv them adequate training to face this pple

Honestly I laugh each time I see you replying to any anonymous saying its me. My name everywhere. What d heck? Never wanted to reply you till I saw a comment someone made and the person made sense, the person said sumtin abt the foolish anonymous having fun cus you always accuse me of hiding under anonymous to insult you. I dnt hide when I comment or reply, not afraid of any soul...kpata kpata the person akpoo mu iyi which doesn't get to me. I use my name cus I hate any anonymous that insults people. stuffs like dat only makes me laugh. So biko nwa nnaa, hapu mu aka. I just want to clear the air, you are not the only one anonymous attacks on this blog and I think same anonymous was the one attacking me calling me husband snatcher and all sorta names, prolly to make me think its you but since I wasnt replying, the person stopped and faced you. Wilheminna speaks ibo and shit like dat! Yes I love my language and won't stop speaking or writing it, anybody that doesn't like it shud choke on it cus I won't stop. Abum nwa afo igbo hohaa... So steve if you feel you can't say a word without mentioning wilheminna then my bro grieve alone cus I don't have anything against you. I don't even know whatelse to say than what I've just written here and that evil anonymous keep doing what you are doing ok? Enjoy cus am not bothered. Steve ozugo inugo? Am not the one. The fool should come out and write with his or her stupid name cus as it is now, you are the one angry over people you don't know, over ife edele ede which is not worth it.... Dats lame if u ask me.

No Oga, I disagree. They should win d war against boko haram. I was at abuja airport dis evening comin in to lagos and behold u need to see d way 3 soldiers beat up a civilian.just at d departure. They hit his head on d concrete and almost killed him These soldiers were not scared dat pple were watching. They used all their might. I wanted to snap and send to Linda Ikeji but it was too risky for me cos I was close. Soldiers only oppress d poor and weak. Boko haram wil deal with them

Anyway my sister we are all here to catch fun. Without all these attacks and rants, the blog will be boring. But in all honesty I have no issues with ya and will never. Am sorry if you feel i went too far. Abu m Nwa afo Igbo as well, and munwa na achokwa Onye mu na ya ga entinye ukwu na ofu trouser. Hehehe. It's all good my sister we are one. But I still maintain my ground. I hate all the stupid gay people on this blog and they are the only people I have issues with. Besides that am 100% good. Once again Moses, I salute your courage. One love..!!

Police? Abeg mak I no laf. Those thieves? Give them money for what? Police don get work already.dem d check vehicle particulars day nd nght. Army get work na. Dem d beat inocent civilians day nd nght. Mopol get work. Dem d folo politicians like flies d folo dead body. Our ogas at d top get work: dem d hang for their officers gates like flag. Na to invite hunters and hezbolla make them com fight boko haram. Una no serios @ all. Me no sure say them kidnap anybody for chibok. Or hw would u reconcile that with the way they r handling d whole thing. This thng na scam.

Steady said...

all these are kinda thing we need to really sit down and think about, is there really BokoHaram in Nigeria or some kind of ways to get attentions?

the #BringBackOurGirls campaign, is it another way of digging money from the federal government or the united nation pocket?

did they really abduct girls from any school? how come nobody can identify any of those girls in the video? how come nobody can come out to prove that he or she is one of the teachers in that school? does it mean that the school is not a registered school in nIGERIA? these questions we need to answer, I believe Asari Dokubo has said it all that the case is a form of Political Propaganda, we need to be really vigilant....
