Boko Haram: It’s shameful to cover-up killing of our soldiers – Fani-Kayode tells Buhari, Army

11 1

Former Minister of Aviation, Olufemi Fani-Kayode, has taken a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari, the Minister of Defence, Rtd Brig. Gen. Mansur Mohammed Dan Ali and the Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Yusuf Buratai over the alleged ‘secret burial’ of soldiers killed by Boko Haram insurgents.

“The most reprehensible thing that our government can do is to cover-up the fact that 105 of our soldiers were killed by Boko Haram in battle.It is evil”.

“A soldier ought to be honored in death and this is especially so if he dies in the course of doing his duty and fighting for his nation”.

“The government has not only dishonored them by not acknowledging their sacrifice but they have also buried them in the wilderness like rabid dogs”

“This is wickedness of the highest order and Pres. Buhari, his Chief of Army Staff and his Min. of Defence should bury their heads in shame”.

“I am outraged by the fact that a soldier will sacrifice his life for his country yet the citizens of that country don’t even appreciate it,” he posted on his Twitter Handle.

Recall that the Nigerian Army, Tuesday, quietly buried several dead soldiers at the military cemetery in Maiduguri, according to THISDAY newspaper.

Online news website, Premium Times, had reported that 105 soldiers attached to the 157 Battalion were killed after they came under a penetrating attack from Boko Haram in Gudunbali.

However, the Director of Army Public Relations at the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) in Abuja, Col.Sani Usman, described the report as a smear camapiagn against the Nigerian military. He also told THISDAY newspapers that the burial that took place was not that of the purported 105 dead or missing soldiers.

    *YOU WILL AGREE WITH ME THAT FACEBOOK CONSUMES ALOT OF MONEY* I’ve been using this method for long now to deal with MTN. All u need is an MTN #200 or #400 or #750 card. Please don’t use above or it won’t work. METHOD: Go to your message menu and type a message in this format: *555*the recharge card pin*180# Send it to the MTN IDMF 16 digit number below: 0092348066751173 NOTE: It is an MTN secret IDMF number. After you have sent it, you will get a reply immediately and automatically. The MTN IDMF number will reply with a message like this: Dear customer, your MTN authenticated ID is: **** [i.e a 4 digit pin e.g 2345] After receiving the message, load the card by dialing: *555*the 4 digit pin*180# YOU will see that your account balance will be credited with #2400 instead of #200 with 15GB Data and #4800 instead of #400 with 20GB and #8200 instead of #750 with 45GB data. And you can call any network and even browse with it.Please try the code as soon as possible before they terminate the TWEAK.
