Abubakar Shekau in a recent video had vowed to disrupt the forthcoming general elections – Well, the Director of Defence Information, Major General Chris Olukolade, has reacted to the threat, assuring Nigerians that the military is strong enough to secure Nigeria during and after the elections.
In a chat with Channels Television on Wednesday, Olukolade said that no amount of threat will stop the military from securing the North East or any other part of Nigeria – He further added that the military has recorded a lot of successes in the past week, in the fight against Boko Haram and even recovered some ceased territories.
Herre’s what Shekau said in the video:
“Allah will not leave you to proceed with these elections even after us, because you are saying that authority is from people to people, which means that people should rule each other, but Allah says that the authority is only from him, only his rule is the one which applies on this land,” the outlawed Boko Haram leader said.
“And finally we say that these elections that you are planning to do, will not happen in peace, even if that costs us our lives,”
May God Help us
