Boko Haram’s Threat To My Life Will Not Deter Me From Serving Humanity – JTF Spokesman


Following the threat to his life by members of the radical Islamist sect Boko Haram, the spokesman of the Military Joint Task Force code named ‘Operation Restore Order’ in Maiduguri – the Borno state capital – Lt-Col. Sagir Musa, has declared that no amount of threats will stop him from ‘serving humanity.’

In a statement made available to news men in Maiduguri, the spokesman said he enjoys nothing more than serving humanity and the protection of life and property of the people which the military as a profession is all about.

“The Nigerian Army is yet to produce (a) coward! If there is anything that I enjoyed most is serving humanity – protecting lives and property of people. I strongly believed that is the noblest act on earth, which no amount of threat will distract, weaken or stop me from performing,” Col Sagir said.

The spokesman who said his life is in the hands of the Almighty added: “lives of all creatures are in the hands of ALLAH as He gives and takes from whoever he wish at his appointed time and nobody takes life except with the wish of the Almighty,” the statement concludes.


It would be recalled that on Tuesday morning, a member of the dreaded Islamic sect who claimed to be the leader Imam Shekau while speaking on the Radio France International (RFI) Hausa service said the JTF spokesman is now well known to the group as they have his picture and will continue to hunt him for his role in the fight against the activities of the sect.
