  • Nigeria forces raid UN Maiduguri base

In a new move to fish out Boko Haram terrorists from their hideout, military troops under Operation Lafiya Dole yesterday searched some properties in Maidugiri, Borno State and other areas for the terrorists who might have used the metropolis as a hideout.

Rumours have been swirling in Maiduguri that the leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, has been hiding out in a compound with the same name.

At the end of the meeting, it was agreed that as a sign of good faith, all members of the State Security Council that include Governor Shettima and heads of military and other security establishments jointly pay a visit to the United Nations property involved in the military "cordon and search" on Friday in order to deepen relationship and to send a message of synergy to rebuild public confidence on humanitarian workers at the United Nations rented property and those operating in other parts of the State. The statement quoted Mr. Kallon as expressing grave concern over the unauthorized search on the facility used as a base for United Nations humanitarian workers. The operation was successfully conducted as over 30 houses were searched.

"Thus, everything will be done by the Nigerian military to ensure that United Nations activities and interests are given adequate protection and encouragement".

In a statement signed on Saturday by his spokesman, Isa Gusau, Governor Shettima said the search was a setback on the well-established relationship with the UN. He called on security agencies to immediately arrest Adam.
