Following the constant killings of innocent Nigerian citizens by the world’s third terrorist group Boko Haram, the Nigerian Army has said it is not their duty to expose their sponsors.
Speaking during a media briefing on Thursday, the Coordinator of Defence Media Operations, John Enenche, confirmed that the Nigerian Army is aware of the huge financial backing of the terrorist group, but would focus on their main task which is to fight terrorism and other criminality across the country.
Speaking further, Enenche explained that the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) and the Department of State Services (DSS) were responsible for revealing the sponsors.
Enenche in his words: “It is not the duty of the military to uncover the sponsors. Our duty is to remain in the frontline and defeat terrorism and other criminality and that is what we are doing.”
“We have the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) and the Dept of State Security (DSS). It is their responsibility to gather intelligence on the sponsors of the terrorists and not the military,” Enenche maintained.
