Whoever is in charge of Nigerian Army Propaganda is pretty good.
Twitter and NTA are bursting to the seams with very false reports of the Army recapturing Michika and Bazza. I quickly got in touch with contacts including residents of Michika and Bazza and surrounding villages and refugees from that area in Yola, Adamawa State and Kaduna City, Kaduna State. They all confirm to the last person that no such event took place there. There was no military attack on either Bazza or Michika and they definitely didn’t recapture any towns from the insurgents.
I will advice Nigeria’s Defence Headquarters to stop claiming victories they never got. It reminds me of the South Vietnamese who kept claiming victory until the Vietcong and the North Vietnamese were right outside Saigon.
As for NTA… That is not a media organization that bothers to investigate whatever claim it is fed by the ruling government or the military.
Some Idiots will misinterpret this posts as some sort of bizarre propaganda piece for Boko Haram.
Well unlike the Generals in Abuja and the arm-chair patriots who feel accepting stupidity from elected leaders is a sign of love for Nigeria, I have a personal stake in the fate of Borno and Adamawa States and Bazza Town in particular. I have extended family members still living in that area, and friends who have relatives still trapped there. I pray Allah Gives Peace to that region and end this conflict that has shattered lives so much.
