Insecurity: Nigera should fish out generals that are Bokoharam agents -Juniad

A second republic lawmaker and elder statesman, Junaid Muhammed has said to overcome the insurgency the authorities have to fish the Generals that are also agents of the Bokoharam.
Muhammed was speaking agains the backdrop that the insurgency has taken a new dimension and yet President Buhari has refused to sack the service chiefs.
He said many of the top military people and some of the people in Governments are also agents of foreign countries as they collect money to pepertrate the evil.
He said if the country cannot find out those so involved then we are all going to waste our time looking for solution where it can not be found.
Continuing he said,
“First and foremost this issue is not new because I raised it with several other Nigerians.
I raised it because there has been this tendency, this trend for Bokoharam to confront the Nigerian armed forces particularly the army and the airforce and police.
“Anytime they did that somehow the Government of the day and the service chiefs of the day will find reason to persuade Buhari that they are doing a good job and that means more money and a lot of the money in foreign currency, a lot of the money is stolen by the Generals.

“If Buhari is so dangerously naive not only on matters that he is supposed to have experience, some knowhow, that is some military man fighting a very hot ongoing military matter, it would be highly elusive for Nigerians to expect him to have the knowhow, the confidence and the necessary gravitas and the political will to fight the prolonged insurgency the manner we have fought so far.
“So I believe Buhari knows very well the implication of standing up to the wishes of the people and standing up and define the wishes of elected representatives of the Nigerian people. “So what is happening today is not an accident there is something he is afraid of or there is something the service chiefs and the other top generals have on him and he is bloody scared, to really do the right thing “Again, because he is not a democrat at heart, he is not a believer in the good destiny of this country and that is why he believes he can simply ask Nigerians to go to hell as they will say in American English, in our eyes he will do what he likes and we cannot force him to do what he doesnt like.
“This is the essence of the matter. I have no doubt in my mind that no country on earth can retain service chiefs and top generals for six years and in the process they have been promoting these generals from one position to another six times.
“They gave out exercise number six just recently and everybody knows even those with the least knowledge of military that this insurgency has had the better part of the Nigerian armed forces that no matter how many years you give them they will never be able to overcome the insurgency. “Anybody who has a knowledge of history of military matters knows that what makes it impossible for the armed forces theatre ortop generals in the headquarters to bring this thing to an end is because they are making a lot of money.
“The amount we have spent on this war and the billionaire general we have created is unbelievable.
“How I wish the next president of Nigeria or next head of state or head of a military Government or whatever, will have the courage to simply investigate how much we have spent on the so called insurgency in the North east if not in other areas.
“How much was actually withdrawn from the Central Bank, from the treasury. Unless that is there we will never know the true state of affairs in the insurgency especially the Bokoharam.”
