Nigerian citizens have accused their government for helping to fuel Boko Haram troubles and increasing the pain inflicted by the insurgent group.
A publication by Nigerian media, Premium times revealed exclusive findings and interviews with some individuals familiar with the ongoing counterinsurgency operations in Nigeria. These individuals suggested that recent deals between the Nigerian government and Boko Haram insurgents had only helped to increase their rate of atrocities.
They said the government exchanged money and some captured commanders of Boko Haram to secure the freedom of the 107 Chibok schoolgirls, the ten Borno women and three University of Maiduguri oil explorers.
They also reported how some senators had earlier acknowledged that the Nigerian government paid ransom to Boko Haram for some of the kidnapped victims.
On the abduction of Dapchi school girls, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Muhammed said “it was a sign that Boko Haram had been substantially defeated and abducting the schoolgirls was nothing but a publicity stunt by the terrorists”.
Exactly 11 days after the Dapchi attack, heavily armed Boko Haram fighters invaded Rann, the headquarters of Kala-Balge where they killed 11 officials including three UN workers and eight Nigerian security personnel.
The UN said two Nigerian midwives working for the International Committee for the Red Cross were also abducted by the gunmen.
On the same night, the insurgents were reported to have attacked a village under Madagali where they abducted three persons.
Early this week, a suicide bomber attacked around Maiduguri killing three operatives of the Civilian and injured 17 others.
Many Nigerians have blamed the recent attacks of the Boko Haram on the federal government for not being able to handle the ongoing counterinsurgency operation and bring security.
