According to The Nation, the National Information Centre, Mike Omeri, who made this known said, government also revealed some Nigerian politicians belonging to a top political party have also  been linked to terrorist activities following the recent raid on Balmo forest in Borno state.

Omeri, who further disclosed that the indicted politicians are being interrogated following their link with the activities in the forest, declined to mention the name of the political party and the politicians involved.

“The politicians are being interrogated following the recovery of some sensitive registration cards and other materials of a prominent political party that were found in the possession of some of the suspects arrested” Omeri said.

According to him, investigation was ongoing to unravel the identity of others that might have been involved, adding that as soon as investigation is completed, the names of the culprits and political party will be revealed to the public.

Similarly, Mrs. Marilyn Ogar, spokesperson of the State Security Service (SSS) while speaking on the activities of the #BringBackOurGirls protesters said: the campaign had become a franchise with different divisions into groups, giving each other specific assignments.

“I remember when we started the fight against insurgents, we said it that the group is more or less a franchise anybody can raise anywhere. If it is not a franchise but an ordinary movement seeking or act to put more pressure on government and security operations to release these  girls, there would be no need for the group to have tag, insisting that members must have a tag and be properly registered. We know that they have bank accounts and also know that they want to go to Asokoro extension and simulate some force movement where they will have foreign media and say they are matching into Sambisa forest and Chibok. We also know that they brought in some experts from outside to come and teach them how to beat security operatives when they are demonstrating. We are waiting to see whether those things will work” Ogar said.

The SSS spokesperson added that: “We hope that genuinely, you don’t go to hire people to come and claim the parent of the child you did not give birth to, so it is a franchise, if we want to fight for our right, let us genuinely fight it. As for security forces, we are working very hard to ensure these girls are brought  back sound and safe”.
