Military Intensifies Cordon and Search Operations for Boko Haram in Maiduguri

Military Intensifies Cordon and Search Operations for Boko Haram in Maiduguri”

The all progressives congress, APC in Borno state has alleged that some loyalists of former Governor Ali Modu Sheriff, ‎led by one barrister Kolo Adam, are behind the recent rumours, claiming that boko haram's leader, Abubakar Shekau has been arrested at a un rented facility in Maiduguri.

The objective of the search was not immediately known but an internal United Nations memo seen by AFP news agency suggested that the Nigerian forces might have been searching for Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau.

The UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Nigeria, Edward Kallon, has expressed concern over the unauthorised search of the UN base for humanitarian workers in Maiduguri, Borno by security forces.

The Nigerian military conducted what the United Nations called an unauthorized search of its main operating base in the country's northeast in the early hours of Friday.

However, the spokesperson, 7 Division of the Nigerian Army, Lt. Col. Samuel Kingsley, said in a statement released in Maiduguri that the building fell into a spectra of area in which it had carried out a condone and search operation in Maiduguri and its environs to clear remnants of Boko Haram insurgents. "I am extremely concerned that these actions could be detrimental to the critical work that is being carried out every day to support the most vulnerable in the region and I call upon the government to provide clarification", the statement quoted Mr. Kallon as saying.

"The United Nations does not have any additional information at this time regarding the reason or motivations for the unauthorized search".

The National Council of Women Societies (NCWS) has backed the call by the Nigerian Army urging parents to stop donating their children to terrorists who in turn use them as suicide bombers.

"As part of ongoing counter insurgency operations, the theatre command Operation Lafiya Dole has been conducting several clearance as well as cordon and search operations in urban and rural areas within the theatre".

It said the efforts have been yielding results with the arrest of more Boko Haram fighters over the past few days.

The security forces added they had not targeted the property and the operation was successfully concluded.
