On April 26th, in the first days after the abduction of 234 girls from Chibok, we sent a formal letter to the president of Nigeria, requesting executive authorization for us civilians to bear arms and engage the Boko Haram terrorists [x]. It is now three months and the Jonathan government has avoided responding to our request while failing to control the Boko Haram menace.
We are ready to bring an end to the Boko Haram insurgency. Hundreds of hunters have in suit, been waiting for the approval of the government to go into Sambisa forest on a rescue and exterminate mission. We are in constant communication with these hunters and with the Civilian-JTF, a force of over 30 000 brave Nigerians who are ready and on stand-by, awaiting the approval from the presidency to take the fight back to Boko Haram and avenge their abducted brothers and sisters and killed and maimed parents, children, friends and relatives. Thousands of Nigerians from across the nation, including ex-military men have also since indicated their readiness to join this mission to sack the forests of Borno of all remnants of the terrorist aberration, while rescuing the thousands of girls and boys abducted over the past 5 years.
As the Nigerian military copes with compromise, sabotage and inevitable, related, desertions of its soldiers, Nigeria desperately needs the civilian patriotic response to terror. We are willing and able to go ahead and at no cost to tax payers – with our contributions and promises from international groups and gun lobbies, we will finance our mission and arm ourselves to capacity to decimate Boko Haram within just three months by God’s mighty grace.
We have carefully drawn out an operating plan to cordon, and strangulate the terrorists, taking advantage of affordable modern devices and tools of warfare. We will combine heart with intelligence and the justified desire for revenge of the victims – we the people of the entire nation. Towards this end, we will implore on the military to temporarily evacuate areas of conflict because we cannot any longer afford to have more military weapons, tanks and APC’s be delivered through military carelessness to the terrorists. We will wipe them out while ensuring they lack the ability to regroup and re-arm as provided by the current failed military strategy.
Civilian patriots are proving their value in Iraq’s similar crisis right now. We ask all well meaning Nigerians and global observers to press the Jonathan administration to immediately approve of our request for the right to obtain and bear arms and engage Boko Haram to finally bring a complete end to the insurgency destroying life and farming in the north of Nigeria.
