It’s ridiculous to compare our gallant soldiers with ragtag Boko Haram-Army

The Nigerian Army has dissociated itself from an allegation made by a member of the Presidential Committee on North East Initiative (PCNI), saying that Boko Haram terrorists earn far more than Nigerian Soldiers

In a statement signed by the Acting Director Army Public Relations, Col. Musa Sagir Wednesday, the army said the terrorists do not earn more than the Nigerian soldier.

A member of the Presidential Committee on the North East Initiative (PCNI), Dr. Sidi Ali Mohammed, had at a function in Abuja on Monday, said that Boko Haram members receive as much as $3,000 daily which he claims serves as payment for carrying out terrorist attacks in the North-East since 2014.

The Nigerian Army said Mohammed’s claim is false and aimed at boosting the morale of the insurgents while dampening the spirit of the country’s gallant soldiers.

“The attention of the Nigerian Army has been drawn to a publication on social media platforms, a false claim credited to one Doctor Sidi Ali Mohammed, a member of the Presidential Committee on the North East Initiative. In it, he alleged that the criminal terrorist group members earn as much as $3,000 daily, as against the Nigerian soldier who is paid N1,000 only.

“This is not true, pure lie and highly irresponsible comment coming from a supposedly knowledgeable person of his calibre. It is also criminal and preposterous to compare the gallant soldiers of our Armed Forces with the rag tag terrorists’ criminal gang.

“Indeed there is no such basis at all between the outlawed criminal terrorist who commits crime against humanity and our highly patriotic, courageous and brave soldiers whose sacrifice cannot be quantified.

“Over time, we have been alerting the world that the menace of Boko Haram terrorism is being aided and abetted by sympathizers’ such as Doctor Sidi Ali Mohammed. He must have been associated with the terrorists’ group beyond what he may want the public to know for having the knowledge of how much a terrorist earns per day to commit atrocities against fellow Nigerians and other innocent people including women and children.

“His statement could be part of the deliberate attempt to demoralise the patriotic soldiers serving their fatherland so that the terrorists will take advantage of it. It is also a way of swaying the gullible youths to believe the lies of Boko Haram terrorists as being peddled by him.

“Therefore, we are calling on all Nigerians to discountenance the statement credited to Doctor Sidi Ali Mohammed; while we take necessary steps to formally report him to the appropriate authorities to further substantiate these unfounded allegations,” Sagir stated.

We would like to assure the public that the Nigerian Army would remain resolute and focused in the fight against terrorism and insurgency in our great nation and no amount of distraction or terrorists’ propaganda will dissuade it”.
