The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has reacted to the arrest of seven serving military officers who were nabbed for aiding bandits and criminals. It would be recalled that the Zamfara State Government on Friday revealed that seven serving military officers have been arrested by the state police command for conniving with bandits and supplying logistics and weapons to them.
Ibrahim Magaji Dosara, the Commissioner for Information in Zamfara State, added that nine military bulletproofs, four sets of military camouflage uniforms and a Nigerian Army Identity card were some of the exhibits recovered by the police from the bandits and their collaborators.
Consequently, in his reaction, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu said the sad development only confirmed what he has been saying for a very long time about the infiltration of the Boko Haram and the ISWAP into the Nigerian Army. ISWAP means Islamic State of West African Province.
Speaking further, he stated in another way that the arrest confirms what TY Danjuma said sometimes ago that there are saboteurs within the Nigerian Army. In a rare outburst, former Chief of Army Staff and Minister of Defence, Lt. Gen. Yakubu Danjuma in 2018, had raised alarm that there was an attempt at ethnic cleansing in the country and asked Nigerians to rise up to resist it, pointedly accusing the military of complicity in the killing of farmers by herdsmen.
However, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has stated that the development only confirmed what he has been saying for a very long time about the infiltration of the Boko Haram and the ISWAP into the Nigerian Army.
According to his tweet on twitter and it reads;
“NEWS: “Seven Military Officers Arrested For Supporting Bandits”.
I have been telling you this for long: BokoHaram, Fulani Herdsmen and ISWAP have infiltrated the Nigerian Armed Forces. And as TY Danjuma had said, if you don’t defend yourselves, you will all die one by one.”
Consequently, diverse reactions have continued to trail the remarks of the IPOB leader and the arrest of the seven serving military officers as well.
