The recent arrest of the media front man of the Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram by the State Security Services [SSS] in Kaduna has further raised the stakes in the ‘war’ between Nigeria and Boko Haram. As 247ureports.com gathered through a source within the Islamic group, the arrest of the media front man by the Nigerian government has permanently shut all doors to dialogue. “We will make them regret this”, the source said.
Information available to our correspondent through a source in Kaduna State indicates that the SSS tricked the men of Boko Haram into a make believe meeting for the purpose of dialogue – somewhere in Kaduna State. The SSS, in particular, had pleaded with the leadership of Boko Haram to come to the dialogue table to lay their grieviances. As gathered, the Boko Haram leaders agreed and were prepared to meet with the men of the SSS. The Boko Haram men, at first, selected five men to meet with the Nigerian SSS – but changed their minds and decided to send one operative instead. This action on their part was because of the limited trust they had for the SSS.
The Boko Haram men who were quartered nearby the pre-arranged meeting venue with the SSS – decided on the media man via a coin toss. This was because all of the 5 Boko Haram men who were selected – all volunteered to be presented as the sacrificial lamb to the SSS.
The meeting between the SSS men and themedia front man for the Islamic group was said to have taken the form of a normal dialogue meeting. The media front was said to have laid the demands of the Islamic group in unweavering terms to the SSS men. The SSS men were said to have received the Boko Haram agent with open arms – until after the meeting – when the men of the SSS followed the Boko Haram agent and then arrested him.
Available information to 247ureports.com indicates that the Boko Haram commanders have recoiled into their various camps with instructions and targets to hit in the coming further. They are determined said the source. More supplies and personnel are being trucked into the country from external sources. In particular, 109 sucide bombers trained in Somalia, according to the source, have arrived the country along with trained bomb makers. The source adds that “our sucide bombers are heading south towards Abuja axis”.
Through independent inquiry, 247ureports.com learnt that some of the Boko Haram members have at one time in their working career – worked in the Aso Villa as an aide to one of the Nigerian Presidents. They have firsthand understanding of the internal design of the Presidential villa – and all the wings inside the complex. Confirming this, an Abuja based security official who claims to have had interactions with the terrorist group stated that the top leadership of the group have had their eyes at the Presidential Villa in Abuja as a prized target.
It is uncertain what the next target of the Boko Haram will be but it is certain the next target will be a significant target. As the sources angrily noted, “We will Destroy Nigeria”.
Meanwhile, it gathered that the National Security Adviser [NSA] and the President were not aware of the said meeting between the men of the SSS and the Boko Haram.
