A member of the House of Representatives, Mr. Adamu Kamale, alleged on Monday that the Nigerian military often fed President Muhammadu Buhari the wrong information on the capacity of Boko Haram to still carry out deadly strikes in the North-East.
Mr. Kamale, a member of the All Progressives Congress, represents Michika/Madagali Federal Constituency of Adamawa State. The two local governments, particularly Madagali, have had a fair share of attacks and abductions by the dreaded sect.
Mr. Kamale, who spoke exclusively with The PUNCH, noted that while the military’s position of ‘decimating’ the insurgents sounded laudable, “the truth remains” that the group was still very active. He disclosed that the situation in Madagali had been “grossly under-reported” in a series of security reports filed by the military to Buhari. According to the lawmaker, no week passes without “one ugly incident or another” taking place in the border communities
