A security analyst, Mr. Jackson Ojo, has warned President Goodluck Jonathan against trusting Nigeria’s neighbours in his efforts to put an end to the Boko Haram insurgency.
Ojo, while condemning last Friday’s terrorist attacks on the central mosque in Kano, said the constant attacks on Nigerians and and Nigerian communities could have the backing of some aggrieved persons in some of the neighbouring countries.
He also advised Jonathan not to seek the help of the United States in the fight against Boko Haram, arguing that the US had predicted the disintegration of Nigeria by 2015, and as such would not offer any help but would rather aggravate the problems.
“President Jonathan must do everything to put a stop to the activities of the Boko Haram sect.
“But he should no longer trust our neighbouring countries. Nationals of these countries: Chaldeans, people from Niger Republic, those from Central African Republic and even Benin Republic enter into Nigeria anyhow and this must stop.
“There are some aggrieved persons in these countries who would want to bring Nigeria down. Some of them are not happy about Nigeria’s stance against Gaddafi and the way our troops went to Mali.
“Majority of these Boko Haram members are aliens. Nigerians love life and would not want to be suicide bombers but aliens whose culture allow suicide bombing would go to any length to destroy our nation.
“We should not look on the direction of the United States of America for solution to this terrorism problem. The same US had long predicted the collapse of Nigeria and going to them would not solve our problem,” Ojo said.
