The Nigerian Army has said that the Boko Haram attacks are parts of the international conspiracy to divide and to destabilize the peace of the country.
“There is an international conspiracy to cut Nigeria to size and compromise national renegades making attempts to destabilize and dismember Nigeria if possible in subservience to the international paymasters; who are the owners of Boko Haram. They train them, arm them, finance them and supply their logistics.
“Without this treacherous international support of Boko Haram; they would have since been defeated. Yet, we can defeat them through our unity and unflinching support and encouragement of our security forces, particularly the military.”
The Acting Director of the Army Public Relations, Colonel Sagir Musa, in an article he shared on social media and with journalists insisted that there are some international paymasters sponsoring Boko Haram.
The army spokesman said: “the recent killing of our people on a rice farm in Borno State was unexpected, inhuman, cowardly, dastardly and sadistic cruelty by the Boko Haram terrorists. There is no normal human being that will take pleasure in such inhuman massacre of defenceless and armless civilians, working on their farms; but that is the nature of terrorism and those who sponsor it.”
