Ex Oyo state governor, Adebayo Alao-Akala has revealed that he doesn’t belief that the Nigerian Army can defeat the Boko Haram Insurgency easily.


He was responding to questions from Vanguard and took time to give his thoughts about what should be done to arrest the threatening situation.

He said that this war won’t be easily won and he revealed that Nigeria has to come as one so as to have a chance against the insurgency.

When they started they first of all scared away the police. They are attacking police station all over the place just to scare them. And they allowed police to be scared by bringing in army, no! They should have fortified the police by giving them more money and vital equipment to enable them to face these people. The police are more widespread in this country than the army. We have police post in every locality, but soldiers are not everywhere,’ he said.

He talked about a department of police called the CIB, Civil Inteligence Burrau which  will gather intelligence report, which will not be sent to anywhere but used within the immediate environment and action taken immediately based on the intelligence gathered and analysed by the officers.

He urged the Army to contribute with the CIB and stay in the background and he urged the Mobile police, MOPOL to face the insurgents.

So, my suggestion is that the police should be brought in; army should be in the background. Why we have mobile policemen is because of this type of situation, MOPOL is a sort of para-military and they are well armed and well trained to face this type of a threat to the society”. he said
