The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has found the latest allegation of genocide against the Nigerian military by a Kaduna based cleric as not only diversionary but unfortunate. The DHQ wishes to unequivocally dissociate the Nigerian military from any involvement in the alleged genocide as depicted in the graphic pictures which appeared in the front page of Blueprint newspapers of 22 May 2014 edition entitled, “Alleged Killing field in Borno”.

While the military will continue to respect freedom of expression of Nigerians, it will not submit to desperate blackmail and propaganda aimed at diverting attention and pitching public opinion against the armed forces. Although the real motive of the report and presentation with the apparent intention to impute military complicity in the event depicted in the pictures is yet to unfold, the DHQ sees this allegation as the manifestation of yet another grand design to tarnish and denigrate the image of Nigerian Armed Forces.

 The Nigerian military remains a professional force whose operations is guided by high standard of professional ethics and will not be party to such dastardly act. At no time or event in the course of the counter-insurgency operation have the troops embarked on the extra-judicial killing of civilians as exhibited in the gory pictures.

 The location and occasion where the events captured in the pictures were taken is unknown and has no bearing whatsoever as insinuated in the report by the Blueprint newspaper. The individual holding stick which the paper mischievously described as “a soldier stand(ing) guard…” is certainly not a Nigerian soldier neither is any of those captured in the pictures.

 The media are once again advised not to make themselves available to those who are desperate to tarnish the good name of the Nigerian Armed Forces

  1. The cleric should be arrested and investigated, they are boko haram supporters, they become uneasy as soon as they learn that boko haram is being defeated. Boko haram was designed by the fulanis to bring down jonah's govt. These fulani people believe they own this counry and for that reason power must remain with them. The truth is that they are finished, nigerians are watching we have seen how desperately u want this power, even if they murder half of our population it does not change the truth, we will never allow evil people to rule this counry, after killing us u will come back to rule us, they are deluded. We have seen what the fulanis have to offer (killing of innocent citizens). They will definitely fail.

  2. Before the end of one Nigeria come 2015,we should make sure that all the Northerners are driven out of our land.We don't need their suya anymore.
