Donald Duke Reveals How Boko Haram Gets Advanced Weapons
Former Cross River State governor and 2019 Presidential candidate for Social Democratic Party, SDP, Donald Duke, claimed that the dreaded Boko Haram terrorist group gets most of its weapons from security operatives.
In a recent interview with Channels TV‘s Sunday Politics, Duke called on the Muhammadu Buhari government to investigate the nation’s security forces and flush out the bag eggs.
He said: “Boko Haram insurgents who have been responsible for most heinous crimes, get their weapons from the security operatives.
“Most of the weapons used by Boko Haram come from our armoury, we will need to look into that. Why are we selling weapons to the enemy?”
Donald Duke, further pointed out that the Nigerian military and police in the northeast must be adequately motivated to achieve results.
He also called for the use of intelligence to combat insecurity such as kidnapping across the country.
“I think the soldiers in the Northeast are under-motivated, the government should motivate them,” he said.
“We need to task them on intelligence gathering. More of intelligence than firepower.
“Also, by now, we need to develop a strategy on kidnap. Are the police properly motivated? I doubt it, and they don’t have enough weaponry.”
