In 2015 Boko Haram overtook ISIS to become the worlds deadliest terrorist group. Boko Haram, which was founded in 2002 as an Islamist movement against Western education and morphed into an armed insurgency in 2009, has rapidly expanded its scope and ambitions over the past couple of years, achieving international notoriety in 2014 by kidnapping more than 200 schoolgirls.
Much like ISIS, the organization once took control of huge territory in Nigeria (although it has lost all of it) and declared a caliphate in that territory. The group is also international; although based in northeastern Nigeria, it has launched attacks in Cameroon, Chad, and Niger. Just this week Boko Haram overran a Nigerian Army base in Gudumbali, and went ahead to seize a town in northeast Nigeria.
No thanks to NATO’s illegal bombardment and destruction of Libya and other destabilizing activities, West Africa and the Sahel has become the battleground for terrorist groups
These pictures of Boko Haram fighters carrying out their attack on a Nigerian Army base just days ago shows how large and well equipped Boko Haram is.
The fact that these attacks happened in a military base near the border with Niger Republic, home to two American Reaper Drone bases begs the question, how likely could an attack of this scale happen without detection from American and French surveillance assets? Looks like the Boko guys have got new fatigues, weapons and vehicles. They look well fed and trained, fresh from a training camp.
How is a group like Boko Haram receiving training and weapons on a massive scale undetected in a small area with six American and French drone bases and other surveillance infrastructure? What are the odds Boko Haram can evade the most sophisticated surveillance apparatus in the world consistently in such a small geographical area? Not even the Taliban or Osama bin Laden with all their resources could pull off such a feat.
The evidence is clear. Countries bordering Nigeria are habouring, arming, training and providing real time intelligence on Nigerian military positions to Boko Haram fighters. The drone bases set up in all the countries surrounding Nigeria are there for a sinister purpose of achieving their destabilization plot against Nigeria.
The escalation of external influence attempting to truncate the war on terrorism in Nigeria. The following countries have been carrying out covert support for Boko Haram while visibly pretending to be vested in helping Nigeria in its struggle against insurgency.
It came as a rude shock to the powers that be when the Nigerian army successfully took Sambisa and flushed Boko Haram out of its last major stronghold. Strangely enough as the Nigerian army sent in bulldozers and equipment to convert the Sambisa forest into a training and sporting complex for the army, the United States began constructing a second $100 million drone bases in Agadez, Niger Republic and Gaorua Cameroon. The new drone base in Agadez Niger Republic became operational in March 2018.
With the loss of the Sambisa, Boko Haram have been secretly receiving training in Niger Republic, out of reach of Nigerian surveillance aircraft and drones, while American and French drones carry out regular surveillance on activities and military formations in Nigeria, giving Boko Haram more time to strategize and plan attack on Nigerian soil using information gathered from these drones.
These terrorists are allowed free passage into Nigerian soil from the northern border in full view of French and American surveillance drones. There is no denying the fact. The actions by these countries are dictated by their colonial and undying loyalty to France, who help prop these despotic regimes to remain in power.
Since the Nigerian government is so incompetent, doesn’t care, afraid or worse all of the above, it is imperative that the United Nations look into the activities of American and French surveillance bases in these countries and setup an investigative joint task force along the Lake Chad Basin to end the suffering and victims of repeated Boko Haram attacks. It is not acceptable that Nigeria’s neighbors act as the breeding ground to revive Boko Haram each time the group is dealt a heavy defeat by the Nigerian military.
The plot to destabilize Nigeria by the powers that be have been ongoing for the better part of a decade. This is no conspiracy theory but FACTUAL.
