FG Orders Military To Flush Out Boko Haram In Mubi, Vimtim

After about three weeks of focusing on a purported ceasefire deal and negotiations with the Boko Haram sect, the federal government has given the military a marching order to flush out insurgents who have been in control of Mubi and Vimtim for the past seven days.

The military had since deployed more attack helicopter gunships and surveillance aircraft, with the new General Officer Commanding 3 Division of the Nigerian Army, Major General FO Alli said to have moved to Yola so as to be closer to the operation.

FG’s order came following intelligence reports that the new upsurge in Boko Haram attacks may have been influenced by political motives to ensure that political activities do not take place in the North East zone of the country, reports Vanguard, adding that the government had also given the new GOC and the commander of the Nigeria Air Force Strike Group in Yola a time frame during which they are expected to have driven the insurgents out.

The government was said to have also made the move as the insurgents were believed to be pushing to take over Yola after the bid to get to Maiduguri failed.

  • Everybody in Nigeria know that if Northern leaders want Bokoharam to stop attacking Nigeria they will stop it .But all what they want is to make mr president look inept ;that is the tactic, well all what they want is to capture an oil rig as an economic stay before cease fire Nigerian should note this.

  • Mumu president. You now give order after seven days. This is really a sleeping president who is always insesitive to Nigeria major problems except to cart away our money with private jets. Just keep calm, 2015 is around the corner.
