Exposed: Strange Helicopter Drops Food, Arms for Boko Haram


Top political and local leaders in Borno and Yobe states have disclosed that helicopters drop ammunition and food, including medicine to areas known to be strongholds of the members of the dreaded Boko Haram sect, in the North-Eastern part of Nigeria.

The leaders said the government could not claim ignorance of the development and that it is indeed a bad omen if a convoy of about 20 to 30 Toyota Hilux vehicles could move freely without being detected despite the so called curfew in place.
“Are the authorities unaware of helicopters dropping arms and ammunition, food and medical supplies to areas well known to be strong holds of the insurgents? 
How were the insurgents able to attack the Maiduguri Air-Force Base and demobilise as well as burn planes and other military installations despite existing state of emergency and curfew in the town? How could 20 to 30 Toyota Hilux vehicles move in a convoy freely with subsisting curfew and still go undetected?
“How did a little band of rag-tag misguided youths metamorphose into a well-kitted, well-armed killing machine moving freely in convoy of vehicles and supported by helicopters?"

The leaders, who spoke at a press conference in Abuja on Monday, asked government to provide answer to the attack on the Maiduguri Air Force Base by insurgents, who de-mobilised and set ablaze aircrafts and other military facilities even with the existing state of emergency and curfew in the town.

Speaking under the aegis of Borno, Yobe People’s Forum, the leaders asked government to tell Nigerians those that authorised the withdrawal of security personnel from the Federal Government College, Buni Yadi, few hours before the attack that claimed the lives of 59 innocent boarding students.

Former Chief of Air Staff, Air Vice Marshall Al-amin Dagash, spoke on behalf of the forum. He was flanked at the press conference by a former Minister of Finance, Mallam Adamu Ciroma; a former Secretary to Government of the Federation, Ambassador Babagana Kingibe; an elder statesman, Shetima Mustapha and other political leaders from the two states.

Al-amin Dagash asked, “How did the Shilka Tank, a multipurpose self propelled anti-aircraft artillery weapon, positioned to secure Giwa Barracks, fail to function resulting in heavy loss of lives of both civilian and military as widely reported in the media? Are we dealing with fifth columnists in this crisis?”

He wondered how the insurgents were able to kill Gen. Mohammed Shuwa, whom he described as a civil war hero, despite the presence of a military detachment in front of his home.

“Most of the victims are women, children and the elderly. These developments underscore the urgent need for the government, the international community, as well as all Nigerians to arrest the brewing humanitarian crises in the area,” he concluded.
