The Nigerian Army (NA) on Thursday warned those sabotaging the war against terrorism in the Northeast to desist or be made to face appropriate sanctions.

It accused some humanitarian aid agencies and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) of supplying food to terrorists.

In a statement by its spokesman, Col. Sagir Musa, the Army said the activities of the NGOs amounted to serious security breaches.

The statement reads: “The Nigerian Army, through the Theatre Command, Operation Lafiya Dole, has once again received disturbing reports indicating that the war against Boko Haram terrorists is being sabotaged by some stakeholders operating in the Northeast.

“This unfortunate development came to the fore with the arrest of a high profile Boko Haram Terrorist Commander, Mohammed Modu (an Amir or commander in the Abubakar Shekau’s faction) by troops of 251 Task Force Battalion of Operation Lafiya Dole on May 26.

“Preliminary investigations conducted so far have revealed that the Abubakar Shekau’s faction of Boko Haram has been receiving so-called ‘humanitarian support’ of food and drugs supplies from some NGOs operating in the Northeast theatre.

“In the light of these disturbing disclosures, especially as they pertain to serious security breaches by NGOs providing logistics support to terrorists, the Nigerian Army strongly warns the affected agencies to desist from compromising Nigeria’s national security and war efforts against terrorism and operate in accordance with the extant rules and regulations guiding the operations of humanitarian aid workers and in line with the guidelines and procedures of international humanitarian laws as well as the laws of armed conflict.

“The NA wishes to remind the NGOs in the Northeast and the public that similar concerns were raised on this same issue previously.

“Thus, the NA will no longer tolerate such acts of sabotage that is inimical to the fight against terrorism by any organisation or agency, and will not hesitate to sanction any such recalcitrant organisation as appropriate.”
