The Nigerian army said it had received news that the war against Boko Haram terrorists would be sabotaged by some interested parties operating in the north-east.
He said that this revelation was made by a high profile of Commander Boko Haram, Mohammed Modu (an emir in the faction of Abubakar Shekau), who was arrested on Sunday by the troops of Operation Operation Battalion 251 LAFIYA DOLE.
This information was contained in a statement by Col. Sagir Musa, acting director of public relations.
According to him, preliminary investigations revealed that the Shekau faction of Boko Haram received “humanitarian aid” for food and medicine from some non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
It reads: “The NA strongly warns the affected agencies to desist from compromising Nigeria’s national security and war efforts against terrorism and operate in accordance with the extant rules and regulations guiding the operations of humanitarian aid workers, and in line with the guidelines and procedures of International Humanitarian Laws as well as the Laws of Armed Conflict.
“The NA wishes to remind the NGOs in the North East and members of the public at large that similar concerns were raised on this same issue previously.
“Thus, the NA will no longer tolerate such acts of sabotage inimical to the fight against terrorism by any organisation or agency, and will not hesitate to sanction any such recalcitrant organization as appropriate.”
