Military Generals Are Hiding Away In Yola, Deceiving The President: Open Letter To President Buhari By Idris Ahmed
During your inauguration ceremony on 29th May 2015, as the new Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, you gave a Presidential order to the military to move the Command and Control Centre of the fight against Boko Haram to Maiduguri, so that the war is effectively fought. Most Nigerians and our well wishers around the world lauded this bold strategic move on your part.
It is now 38 days since you gave the Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Sabundu Badeh, and the military generals this Presidential order to move to Maiduguri. Unfortunately, CUPS can reliably inform you that the Boko Haram generals are no where near Maiduguri. In fact they are 405 kilometres away, chilling out at a Mansion, adjacent to DSS office, in Dougirei, Jimeta Yola, Adamawa state.
This hideaway mansion is hired by CDS Alex Badeh himself. We know the owner of this mansion very well. We have spoken to him.
Your excellency, the same mobile phone apprehension equipment that was used by the former DG DSS, Ita Ekpenyong, to hack into your mobiles phones can effectively be used to track down the movement of these treacherous military generals. Ask the new DG DSS to track their movements. You will find out that they are in Yola all the times at this mansion.
Your Excellency, CUPS is reliably informed that there is no any Command and Control of fight against Boko Haram that is going on from this hideous hideaway mansion. It is just being used by Badeh and his fellow generals for partying, sex, and drinking 24/7. Of course there is a constant supply of the finest food, wine, and women, all at the expense of the Nigerian tax payers.
While the CDS and his fellow generals are partying to glory, we ordinary Nigerians have recently noticed a deterioration in security, which should never have happened. Just yesterday alone there were three deadly bomb blasts that resulted in loss of human life. One blast happened at the Redeem Church in Potiskum. Another happened at Shagalinku Restaurant in Jos. The last blast was at a popular Masjid called Yan Taya in Jos.
Your Excellency, these Boko Haram generals must go with immediate effect. There is no value whatsoever in retaining them.
May God save Nigeria and Nigerians. Amen.
Dr. Idris Ahmed.
