BBOG Blasts Buhari’s Govt For Secretly Burying Soldiers To Hide Its Lies

The Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) movement has blasted the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government for secretly burying soldiers in order to hide the fact that it lied that it had won the war against Boko Haram.

The group made this known while reacting to the photos of the mass burial of soldiers reportedly killed by the terrorists in Bama LGA, on July 16,2018.

Recall that the Nigerian Army had denied that the terrorists ambushed and killed hundreds of soldiers.

In a statement signed by the BBOG conveners, Oby Ezekwesili, Aisha Yesufu, and Patience Ozor, the group said;

“Were Nigerians not told that the military has won the war? What then is the reason for the escalation of attacks by the terrorists and the heightened loss of life of citizens and our soldiers?”

“The #BringBackOurGirls advocacy has been consistent in voicing the correlation between the wellbeing of our troops, the rescue of our #ChibokGirls and the end of the insurgency.

”It is therefore disheartening that several months after the federal government’s announcement that Boko Haram has been technically defeated, we see pictures of a mass burial for our troops, killed by Boko Haram.”

“The military authority should immediately confirm the number of our soldiers that have died within this month of July 2018. Their families and Nigerians should have a brief on the circumstances of their deaths as a means to healing, to have closure. Their names should be released for proper honour as obtains in other climes.

”We take exception to what is to all intent, a secret burial of our fallen heroes. Those responsible for the safety of our troops should be sanctioned for this failure and measures must be put in place to prevent further deaths and damage to the morale of our troops. We question why the current status of our defence budget is at variance with the safety and wellbeing of our troops in this fight against Boko Haram.

”We still stand on the demand we have made previously, for the federal government to institute a monthly counter-terrorism status report to the Nigerian public.”

The Buhari government, feeling the need to show that it had started fulfilling its campaign promises had in 2015 declared that it had defeated Boko Haram. Since it made that hasty declaration, thousands of Nigerians have been killed by the insurgents in a war that is far from being over.
