Army playing politics with Nigeria’s security – APC Senator

Army playing politics with Nigeria’s security – APC Senator

Senator representing Bauchi Central, Isah Misau, on Tuesday accused the Nigerian Army of playing politics with security issues in the country.

Misau spoke while contributing to the debate sponsored by Tijjani Kaura, Senator representing Zamfara North on the recent killings in Zurmi area of the state.

The lawmaker wondered why Boko Haram insurgents carry out attacks after the Army claimed to have defeated them.

He said, “Mr President we cannot mix politics with security. What the army is doing is politics. You will come out to say you have defeated Boko Haram and the next day Boko Haram will go and kill people to prove a point.

“Even the army coming to say they have Boko Haram is a risk to lives of the people. They should stop coming out to tell that they have defeated Boko Haram. It is not necessary. If Boko Haram is defeated, we will know.”

Misau also lamented inadequate security personnel and poor equipping of the military.

“The place the incident happened (Zamfara), if you take the statistics, you won’t find up to 100 security men there.

“Even if there were 100 security men, you will find out that they are not armed. We have to be practical, do we have the manpower? The resources? If we don’t have it, we will continue to talk here, we will keep observing one-minute silence.

“The army is becoming demoralised, they (soldiers) have an ambition to reach a certain rank but they are blocked. If we allow the morale of our soldiers to go down, we will face a lot of problems. We must do the right thing,” he said.
