Nnamdi Kanu mocks Nigeria for sending police instead of army to fight Boko Haram

...Says they’re only powerful in Biafraland

ISRAEL— Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, Tuesday, lampooned the Nigerian government for sending civilian police officers to combat terrorism while battalions of its military personnel are deployed to ‘Biafraland to man the checkpoints and conduct elections.’

Recall that about 190 police officers were recently declared wanted after they fled from a special training to prepare them for deployment against the dreaded terrorist group, Boko Haram, in the troubled northeastern region.

The officers were sent on an induction training at the Nigerian Army Special Forces Training School in Buni Yadi, Yobe State, before their deployment to fight the terrorist group.

Reacting on their deployment, Kanu queried the rationale behind sending the officers to fight terrorists while the Nigerian Army whose primary duty it is to combat terrorism is being deployed to mantle checkpoints and safeguard polling units during elections in Southern part of the country.

He said: “Sending the police to go and fight terrorists, and sending the army to go and kill civilians in the South... God forbid! What sort of people are these? Are you sure they are normal and Nigerians, are you people okay?

“Yoruba newspapers are carrying on as if nothing is wrong. So as Israel is securing the border around Gaza, can they now send the local police and then send the Army to come and be controlling traffic in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. I can’t understand it.

“So the Nigerian police can go to the war front and the Army will go to be setting up checkpoints? Somebody should explain if that is normal.

“But why can’t ordinary Nigerians see it? Are they blind? How can you send police to the war front and then send Army to go and conduct elections? I can’t get my head around it honestly. They(Army) are only strong in Biafraland but not in Boko Haram-infested areas.”
