Boko Haram: DHQ Keep Mum Over Senator Ndume’s Allegations

The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has refused to react to an allegation made by Senator Ali Ndume.

Recall that while condemning the amnesty granted to repentant Boko Haram terrorists, Senator Ndume had alleged that they now serve as informants to their former colleagues.

Also, Ndume had said that the recent army colonel who died in Borno State was killed as a result of former terrorist tipping off Boko Haram on the movement of an army convoy.

Despite the fact that the allegations sparked outrage from Nigerians, as many opposed the government’s decision to grant amnesty to the former terrorists, the DHQ has maintained sealed lips on the issue.

Ndume is also the chairman Senate committee on the Nigerian Army and former leader of the Nigerian Senate in the 8th National Assembly.

Reacting to Senator Ndume’s allegation, the coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche, said: “When my masters have spoken, I cannot speak again. If the service chiefs say something, I can re-echo it, but responding to criticism of the National Assembly will amount to insubordination.

“This is because if I talk now, you – the press– will go and start joining issues that this one is good and the other one is bad.

“The information that came out is from the grand strategic level, therefore, I advise that when you get to the Senate, or the Ministry of Defence, you can ask them.”
