Nigerian army shuts down international aids to Jihadist group, Boko Haram

Nigerian Army shut down

According to sources from BBC, The Nigerian army has been reported to have closed down the activities of an international aid organization, which it accuses of aiding militant terrorist group Boko Haram in the north-east region of the country. In its action claimed that the organization has been aiding and supplying the Islamic insurgents with foods and drugs.

The non-governmental organization (NGO) at Maiduguri, north-eastern Borno state was shut down on Thursday, and denied the allegation saying “They shut us down without prior notice”.

The allegations made by the army are serious, and it is the first time that it has named specifically an organization for breaching security and sabotaging the army’s counter-terrorism operations in the region.

Source from BBC said  the Nigerian army twitted in their twitter handle that it has observed with great disappointment and concern  the notorious activities of some non governmental organizations (NGO) working in the North-east of Nigeria, and that despite several warnings to desist from aiding the terrorists and their atrocities, the theatre command operations, Lafiya Dole has raised alarms on many occasions over this unwholesome practice of the NGOs and expressed same positions during meetings with the NGOs in the Northern-east region.

Sources said that the Nigerian army has obtained “credible intelligence” that back up its allegation

Boko Haram militants have been said to have waged a 10-year-long insurgency in north-eastern Nigeria, which has also affected neighbouring countries of Chad, Niger, and Cameroon.

Tens of thousands of civilians have been killed and more than two million have fled their homes during the conflict.

The group has become notorious for kidnapping school children and attracted global media attention following the abduction of more than 200 girls from a school in the town of Chibok in 2014, in Borno, the state where the militant group has been most active.
