Federal Government is Lying About Defeating Boko Haram

 
News reaching us as the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs)‎ from Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno State have contradicted recent claims by the Federal Government and the military that Boko Haram has been completely wiped out. Some of the IDPs stated that some towns are still under the control of Boko Haram terrorists.

Noting that Gwoza local government and other towns within the area were still being held by the sect, the IDPs claimed they were being pressured by the government through the National Emergency Agency, NEMA, and the National Human Rights Commission, NHRC, to return to their various communities in order to prove that the insurgents had been defeated.

Chairman of the IDPs camp in New Konchingoro, a suburb in Abuja, Mr. Filimo Emmanuel, made this known yesterday when Senator Dino Melaye, who is the Chairman Senate Committee on Federal Capital Territory, FCT, marked his birthday with them.

According to him, “NEMA and the NHRC have continually told us we will go back to our villages that Boko Haram has been pushed out of our villages, which is not true.

“No military went to our villages. There is no military in Gwoza as our villages are controlled by Boko Haram. We are begging you to take our complaints to the National Assembly. You can help us to talk to the Chief of Army Staff so that he can send soldiers to our villages to flush out the insurgents. If we are able to confirm that Boko Haram has been flushed out from our villages, even, tomorrow, we are ready to go back.”
