We have received serious reports that the helicopter that
crashed in Girei Local Government Area of Adamawa state, Thursday last week,
was loaded with hard currency and ammunition.
Veritable eyewitnesses at the scene informed ENDS agents
about these details. According to witnesses, the chopper was ferrying two white
passengers. The passengers chased away eye witnesses and barred most security
agents. They ordered the chopper to be burned. It can be recalled that it was
publicly reported in the media that
the chopper was on fire and explosions were heard from within it.
These shady actions of the passengers of the chopper raise
pertinent questions. What was the hard currency and arms onboard for? Could
this chopper have been on a mission to supply Boko Haram? Why was it ordered
burned? Who were the white passengers?

Recently a private jet belonging to the President of the
Christian Association of Nigeria, Can was detained along with three passengers
including an Israeli in South Africa on allegations of cash and arms smuggling.
The confiscated $9.3 million dollars was only released to Nigeria after the
Nigerian presidency blackmailed the South African government, threatening to
harass their legitimate business interests in Nigeria.
The recent sham cease fire announced by the Jonathan-led
government of Nigeria in suit with Ali Modu Sheriff, a named Boko Haram sponsor
and the President of Chad also implicated in arming and supporting the
terrorist organization, which allowed Boko Haram regroup and capture more
territory in Borno state and the north half of Adamawa state has provoked serious
review of the roles of Nigeria’s leadership in facilitating terror.
Currently, the Jonathan
ordered clampdown on vigilante forces who had scored great victories
against Boko Haram, liberating Maiha and Mubi towns in Adamawa has further
pointed to an open effort by the nation’s leadership to protect Boko Haram
possibly among other reasons to make elections impossible in the northeast next
The well known Sarkin Baka of Adamawa was according to
latest reports arrested
Sunday for leading hunters who have amassed in their hundreds to successfully
recover Mubi and Maiha. This arrest followed his house being burned down by
Boko Haram terrorists when they captured Gombi late last week. The picture is
one of Boko Haram and the Nigerian security services under the current
leadership working in rapidly tandem.
Meanwhile the Emir of Kano has
called on all Nigerians to desist from waiting for and relying on the
army, but to arm themselves by whatever means possible and defend themselves
and the territorial integrity of Nigeria.
