We Catch Boko Haram, But We Can’t Kill Them Because Of Order From Above – Naija Soldier Lament

A Nigerian soldier and security operative fighting the insurgent groups like Boko Haram and the Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) in Maiduguri has expressed disappointment over the recent attack on correctional facility in the capital city of Abuja which triggered a massive prison break by Boko Haram members.

The soldier said that they are meant to capture terrorists but they are not meant to harm them. We are ordered not to harm the terrorists we caught and sadly, some of the terrorists we caught escape justice at the end of the day, the security operative revealed.

These people attack prison facilities and security posts for hours without any interference. The soldier also revealed that some terrorists they caught are confident that they will not be brought to justice. They now consider themselves as ‘Government Boys’, stressing that when you capture them, you do not have the power to do anything to them.

You will capture Boko Haram and you will be told not to harm him and later he will disappear, the security operative lamented. Boko Haram and the Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) have suffered huge losses in the past few months, but their attacks have continued regardless.

The soldier further lamented that Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorist can never be defeated by the Nigerian army with the current administration sponsoring and protecting them. He further stated that the only way that the military can be empowered to defeat Boko Haram and ISWAP once and for all, is when a new government that is not affiliated with the Fulani caliphate takes over power in Nigeria.
