“News reports have it that the Nigerian Air Force jets bombed the army barracks in Bama, Borno State, north-east Nigeria, on Monday, September 1, 2014. The reports said the fighter jets bombed the army barracks when the army was fighting “Boko Haram” fighters who came attacking the town, and that the army was seriously repelling and destroying the “terrorists” when the Air Force jets came on the scene and bombed the barracks, and in the process all the armoury in the barracks was destroyed in addition to many casualties, which made all the soldiers completely defenceless, and then “Boko Haram” took control of the town while the soldiers fled the town alongside multitudes of civilians.
“Let me quickly assert that there is nowhere in the world whereby military fighter jets of the same country will bomb military barracks in a city where the same military is engaged in a fierce battle with terrorists and then the terrorists will take over the city. It only means the military fighter jets were commanded to aid the terrorists at the expense of the lives of the soldiers who were gallantly fighting the terrorists.
Remember also that when “Boko Haram” attacked the Giwa army barracks in Maiduguri sometime this year, their video of the attack also showed a military fighter jet giving them cover in the sky.
“So, what further evidence does anyone need that “Boko Haram” is a government agenda against a particular people?
“I expect that by now a powerful coalition of northern leaders should hold a World Press Conference and declare that they are being destroyed systematically through a well orchestrated State Sponsored Terrorism, and should raise a powerful delegation to visit world leaders and raise the same issue, and then finally take the matter to the International Criminal Court of Justice and secure some arrest warrants.
