As the military appoints a new spokesperson for the Operation Lafiya Dole, Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State has debunked a recent claim by Senator Baba Kaka Bashir Garbai that Boko Haram controls substantial parts of the state.
Shortly after the ruling, Dasuki’s lawyer, Ahmed Raji protested that he has no access to his client (Dasuki) since December 29, 2015 because Dasuki is being held by stranger in the case (DSS) which is not in this case. He insisted that EFCC and DSS are working for the same master which is the Federal Government.
The recent unfortunate attacks by Boko Haram terrorists on communities close to Maiduguri, despite our successes calls for concern. To this end the Nigerian Army has already commenced investigation into the attacks. All those found wanting will be dealt with in accordance with the Armed Forces Act.
Dasuki was among the officer who confronted Late Sani Abacha and insisted that MKO Abiola be freed and allowed to become President over the June 12, 1993 President election. This led to the premature retirement of Dasuki and other officers in 1994.
The Rivers State Police Command has successfully rescued Mr. Austin Ajah and Mrs. Winifred Frank few hours after they were kidnapped on 06/02/2016 at about 6:19 pm near Siat Palm farm in Ubima, Ikwerre Local Government. The duo were returning from Owerri to Port Harcourt after attending a wedding.
As far as the military is concerned Boko Haram insurgency is within the ambit of what the Nigerian Armed Forces can handle.
The attention of the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has been drawn to some newspaper publication by a group of persons threatened to embark on acts...
A text from a top security source said: “The name of the ship is MT LEON DIAS (9279927). An oil tanker, the ship is presently in Benin waters, about 7.5 nautical miles off Cotonou Port and is under the watch of the Benin Republic Navy.” The officer told PRNigeria that "Benin Republic is in a better position to provide details on the Ship since it is not on Nigerian coastal region"
DSS only produced ex-NSA Dasuki in court after Justice Affen had adjourned the case. Ex-NSA lawyer, Mr Daudu had argued in court that the prosecution lacked the right to continue to prosecute Dasuki for flagrant disobedience of bails granted to Dasuki from three courts.

Nigerian troops prevent suicide bombers from IDPS as Theater commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Major General Hassan Umaru visit Dalori Village after Boko Haram attacks.
It has come to the notice of the Defence Headquarters that Boko Haram, in their desperation to cause colossal havoc, have now devised a new method where they dress like mad persons to gain unsuspecting access to public areas to detonate bombs.
However, the aircraft could not be deployed to the theatre of operation before now due to the inherent weapon delivery deficiency hence its limited use for training purposes. The urgent need, in recent times, to commit more NAF platforms to OPERATION LAFIYA DOLE to enhance the success of the counter insurgency operation necessitated the Service to look inward to seek ways of achieving its drive for self reliance through research and development.
The public will recall our earlier warning of this type of campaign of calumny against the Nigerian Army and the Chief of Army Staff. This has again reared its ugly head again. Unfortunately, the movement could not get their facts right as has always been the case with people with dubious intents. Contrary to their mischief, it should be noted that General Buratai was Director of Procurement at Defence Headquarters from March 2014 to May 2015, not from 2012 to 2015 as they wished to mislead the public. Furthermore, there is the need to educate the ignorant group that, Defence Procurement in Nigeria is decentralised; each Service is responsible for its procurement. It is advisable for the group to look elsewhere if they want to attack the Chief of Army Staff. For the avoidance of doubt, the Chief of Army Staff has never been involved in any questionable act throughout his career as military officer let alone when he was at the DHQ.
