Boko Haram’s Intelligence Better Than That of Nigerian Military – TY Danjuma

Gen. Theophilus Danjuma (rtd), has described the terrorist sect, Boko Haram, as having the ability to gather better intelligence than the Nigerian military.

While speaking at the opening of the new secretariat‎ for the Catholic Diocese in Sokoto State, built by the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Hassan Kukah.

He said the war against the insurgents is entering a critical stage and Nigerians must brace up for the challenges ahead.

He added that the fight against the group has forced them into mixing up with civilian population across the country and that the new strategy by the military, has not only bolstered the intelligence capability of the terrorists but has made them have superior surveillance techniques than Nigeria’s security agencies.

“When Boko Haram openly denounced all religions, Muhammadu Buhari called them terrorists and urged all Muslims to consider them as such,” he said.

“Later, some who chose to remain on the fence realised the threat posed to all and reluctantly joined in condemning Boko Haram.

“Having sleeping cells among the generality of the population has made them have intelligence capability that is 100 percent better than that of our security agencies‎.”

Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal and Adams Oshiomhole of Edo, who graced the occassion, in their remarks, asked Nigerians to promote religious harmony and understanding.
