Bring Chadian Soldiers To Join Boko Haram Battle Borno Governor Says

Borno State Governor Babagana Zulum on Wednesday asked the Federal Government to seek the support of the Chadian Republic military in its bid to end the security challenges in his state and other parts of the country.

The Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) made good its promise to help Zulum tackle the insecurity in Borno by donating N100 million to the state.

Also on Wednesday, the House of Representatives renewed its call for the sacking of service chiefs by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Zulum has within a month escaped unhurt in two different attacks on his convoy by Boko Haram insurgents. The last which was on Sunday led to the death of four soldiers, 10 policemen and four civilians. Scores were also injured.


The governor told a visiting delegation of the NGF in Maiduguri, that with the way things are, the Nigerian Army required the assistance of others to reverse the insecurity in the Northeast and other parts of the country.

A statement by the NGF spokesman, Abdulrazaque Bello-Barkindo, quoted the governor as calling on the Federal Government “to ensure that Chadian soldiers are invited to join the Nigeria Army in the fight against insurgency if any meaningful success is to be recorded on the battleground.”

It added: “Zulum rationalised that no single army anywhere in the world has ever succeeded in quelling insurgency. He requested that the government looked into ways of complementing the efforts of the Nigeria Army with the Chadian soldiers, emphasising that it is not to undermine the Nigerian soldiers, but to help them in finishing the job within a realistic deadline.”

The governor told the team that things had degenerated to the extent that majority of Borno State people displaced by insurgents now depend on aid for survival.

He pointed out that the Chad Basin, Sambisa Grazing Reserve and Mandara Mountains, which used to employ about 10 million people, have been made inaccessible by terrorists.
