Boko Haram: Borno Residents Ask Jonathan To Relocate To Maiduguri

Following the last Friday attack on the 202 tank Mohammed Kur Barrack Bama, located at Bama Local Government Area of Borno State, in the course of which a lot of soldiers were killed and armories carted away, Borno residents have called on President Goodluck Jonathan to relocate to Maiduguri until the insurgents are crushed.

A public commentator Mallam Abduraham said that President Goodluck Jonathan was busy thinking about 2015, instead of taking the fight against Boko Haram with all seriousness.

He said if the insurgents could sack a whole Barack and cart away armories, “there is great danger ahead of us as a nation, the way things are going, the insurgents would capture Borno, Yobe and Adamawa and will advance to other states."

According to Mr. Abduraham, President Jonathan has to fight the insurgents with all seriousness, noting if he does not, the way things are moving, the insurgents will take over the whole country.

He added that instead of the military taking the battle to the Boko Haram terrorists camps, they allow themselves to be on the defensive side.

"The military should change their strategy, otherwise, the insurgents will take over the country," Abdulrrahaman said.

One of Bama residents who asked the journalists not to disclose his name, said that considering the attack on the barracks, he was thinking about the option of running to Cameroon.

For Mr. Daniel Audu, the state of emergency declared on the three states was of no effect. He pointed out: 

"If the insurgents could take over a barracks, hoist their flag and later leave the premises unchallenged, there is great danger ahead of us as a nation." 

Thus, residents urge Jonathan to face the war against insurgency instead of thinking about 2015 elections.
