NDA Invasion:Retired And Serving Military Personnel Working For Boko Haram- Ex-DSS Director
A former director of department of state services, Mr. Mike Ejiofor has declared that it’s obvious that both retired and serving military personnel are working with the Boko Haram to destroy the country.
Speaking on a current affairs program, Saturday Sunrise, monitored in Lagos yesterday, he said with the level of destruction and audacious attacks on the Nigerian Defence Academy and for bringing down an air force aircraft, it’s obvious that some retired and serving military personnel are aiding them.
Ejiofor said apart from the foreign training some of the terrorists might have received, bringing down an aircraft and invasion of NDA without any arrest or trace almost a week after is an indication that they have collaborators in the military.
He, however, urged that more is required in intelligence gathering to fish out the perpetrators of these dastardly acts.
He said, “ We know that some of the terrorists received training, but bringing down an aircraft and invading the NDA without being caught speaks volumes. Bringing down an aircraft requires the launch of a scud missile. These can only be achieved through those who have received military training and expert at such. It’s crystal clear that some serving and retired military personnel are working for the insurgents. We need to do more in the area of intelligence gathering to arrest the perpetrators. “
