Femi Fani Kayode is at it again. He has narrated the recent hullabaloo on the fall of Sambisa as a hype.
Fani said an unnamed Army General confided in him saying that the who gist is a ploy aimed at misinforming.
We have reproduced his post verbatim:
“A retired General shared this perspective with me.
“He said the recent noise about the defeat of BHT (Boko Haram terrorists) is so deceptive.
“It must be noted as a mission in furtherance of their belief & propaganda to achieve 2 things.
“First is to vindicate Islam by presenting it as not being responsible for all the evil done by this terrible Jihadists movement.
“He had devoted a substantial portion of his inaugural speech in trumpeting this deception.
“Much of what he had to say there was to insist that Islam was not responsible for the atrocities.
“That message was more of an imam’s speech.
“The fact is that the last regime had already positioned the military to finally destroy the BHT.
“As this was happening, Buhari the tyrant & his APC were busy encouraging & profiting from the exploits of the evil organization.
“Secondly, himself, his party & many Muslim fanatic military officers sabotaged the counterterrorist operations under Jonathan.
“They were mainly concerned that Jonathan, an ‘infidel’ must not be credited with defeating an organization identified with Islam.
“This to them would be an unacceptable aberration.
“Most of those officers sabotaging the operations under last leadership eventually became the earliest appointees to command in the Army.
“People fail to ask what really is his tangible strategic input of this tyrant to this defeat of BHT that he so much wants to be credited with?
“All the equipment used were procured by the last regime.
“All the Special forces were trained under the last regime.
“The MNJTF was an idea fully packaged by the last regime.
“The massive recruitment, retraining & restructuring of NA all under the last regime.

“The efforts to restore discipline which opposition politicians worked to undermine & incite was also not by this wicked regime of propagandists.
“In actual fact, part of the reasons anger of the tyrant’s regime against Dasuki & leadership of military under Jonathan was because of the totality the efforts to roundly defeat BHT & terrorism in Nigeria.
“This is the background & the true narrative of the much noised December 2016 victory over BHT.
I wish this understanding is available to Nigerians & historian on our nation’s travails.”
