Declaration of caliphate: Ex Generals alarmed by Boko Haram (Nigeria)

Prominent retired Generals in the country are alarmed that Boko Haram terrorists appeared to be gaining the upper hand in their war against Nigeria.

One of the retired Generals, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, who visited Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, on Friday, was said to have voiced out to some of his close associates that he would not mind putting on his military uniform again in the face of the embarrassing declaration of an Islamic state in the North East by Boko Haram amid reports of the terrorists victory over the Nigerian army in several battles in recent days.

Two other former military rulers, among other retired military top shots, it was reliably learnt, have also expressed similar shock to underscore the danger presently assailing the country’s territorial integrity.

Two weeks ago, former military president, Ibrahim Babangida, declared to newsmen that he still had his military uniform at home and would not mind wearing it again to defend the country from the terrorists.

A former ECOMOG airforce chief, retired Air Vice Marshall Mohammed Audu Bida, addressed a press conference on Friday in Abuja, where he blamed the present helpless situation in the North East on what he called the lack of political will to deal with the insurgency.

He called on President Goodluck Jonathan to give orders for an all-out war against Boko Haram in the interest of the country.


Boko Haram last week declared a Caliphate and Sharia law in Gwoza community of Borno State while it drove almost 500 Nigerian soldiers into Cameroun during a hot battle.
