Stop glorifying Boko Haram, Bandits and Armed robbers through sensational headlines-Buratai

…says it’s tantamount to supporting terrorism 

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai has described Boko Haram as a group of murderers, bandits and armed robbers.

He insisted that it was wrong for any Nigeria to eulogize or support them, noting that this has given the criminal group a larger than life status.

The COAS made the assertion in a statement signed by the Army spokesman, Col. Sagir Musa after a meeting with military top notch in Maiduguri on Friday.

The statement read that the COAS noted with great concern the increased propaganda and undue publicity given to the remnants of the erstwhile Boko Haram terrorists group by some people. 

He lamented that this worrisome development has further boosted the image of the criminal gang thus assuming larger than life status. 

The statement said the COAS pointed out that, it was wrong for any person “to eulogize or support murderers, bandits and armed robbers that the known Boko Haram terrorists group has turned into.”

He warned that describing “such gang of criminals, bandits, insurgents such as Boko Haram Terrorists Group, JAS or ISWAP”, in glorious light  in Nigeria “could amount to supporting or encouraging terrorism.”

The statement said: “The Chief of Army Staff said that it is also important to note that the mode of operation of these elements, is pure criminality for personal gains. It is common knowledge that the criminals no longer pretend to be championing any cause other than quest for materialism as manifested in murder and terror on hapless people. 

“He pleaded that as  peace loving people, Nigerians  should not be glorifying these criminals by calling them by any name other than “criminals,” “rapists,”  “kidnappers”,   “armed robbers” and  “murderers.”

The statement further said it was “unfortunate, many Nigerians are not aware that giving prominence to the criminal activities of the  terrorists group through sensational headlines and fake news in both electronic and print media could also amount to tacit support to terrorism which violates the Terrorism Prevention Act 2011.

“It is therefore important that all Nigerians rally round our gallant troops as they fight these criminals. All should know that the support  to the efforts of the Armed Forces Of Nigeria in the counter terrorism efforts would boost their morale and it will be highly appreciated.”

“The Nigerian Army is  asking for the continued  understanding and cooperation of all Nigerians and well meaning people. 

He further stated that all troops have been enjoined to henceforth go all out to deal decisively with these criminals.  

“They are nothing but bandits and armed robbers. Let’s support our military to ensure a secured Nigeria,” the statement added.
