From The New York Times, Nigeria Probes New Reports of Food Aid Stolen From Refugees
Lawmakers in northeastern Nigeria are investigating new allegations that officials have diverted crucial food aid intended for people who have fled from Boko Haram extremists.
The allegations in Adamawa state center on officials and market traders accused of selling food items donated by Nigeria’s customs service, said Hassan Barguma, chair of a committee on refugees in the Adamawa state assembly.
“Stealing food meant for starving children is beyond the pale,” Barguma said.
Boko Haram’s seven-year-old insurgency has killed more than 20,000 people and displaced more than 2.6 million others in Nigeria and neighboring Cameroon, Niger and Chad.
Lawmakers and officials are already investigating reports that food aid was stolen in Borno state, the birthplace of Boko Haram, where the U.N. has warned that tens of thousands of children could die from malnutrition. The reports sparked protests from refugees, who at one point blocked a main highway heading into Maiduguri, the northeast’s largest city.
Nigeria’s customs service in August released 11 trucks of food aid including rice, oil and spaghetti for refugees in Adamawa state. Yet Barguma said many of the items did not reach refugees and were instead sold to local markets.
Sadiq Daware, deputy coordinator of Adamawa’s poverty alleviation office, denied the allegations.
“Whoever tells you the items were diverted is very far away from the truth,” he said.
He said local officials followed an approved distribution plan, though he noted that this called for some aid to be given to politicians and officials acting as intermediaries.
Refugee community representatives in Adamawa said they were infuriated by reports of stolen food aid and called for a thorough investigation.
“We are being fed only once or twice daily,” said Habu Ali, a community leader in Fufore. He said most refugees preferred to go out and fend for themselves rather than “being treated like animals” in the camps.
Falmata Ali, another refugee, said children in her camp were always crying out for more food.
“We are tired of all these inhuman treatments. Let them take us back to our towns in Borno,” she said.
Adamawa state once housed 60,000 refugees, although Nigeria’s National Emergency Management Agency reported Friday the figure had dropped to about 18,960 as people returned home.
Saraki’s third visit to Buhari in one week
President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday met behind closed doors with the President of the Senate, Sen. Bukola Saraki. The visit of the Senate President, the third within one week, might not be unconnected with the rejection by the senate of the executive’s 29.9 billion dollars foreign loan .
On November 4, the Senate President met with President Buhari after joining him to perform the Jumat prayers at the State House Mosque. Saraki, who briefly spoke with State House correspondents after the meeting, pleaded with Nigerians not to politicise the rejection of the loan by the Senate. He also met with Buhari on Wednesday. President Buhari wrote to the National Assembly seeking its approval for an external borrowing of 29.9 billion dollars to ensure the prompt implementation of projects in 2016 and 2017 fiscal years. According to him, the projects cut across agriculture, health, education, and water supply. The senate, however, turned down the external borrowing request due to what they called “lack of documents supporting the request as referenced in the letter”.
27 states donate land for mass housing
The Premium Times reports that The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, says 27 states have provided the ministry with land on which to build houses for the masses.
Mr. Fashola told journalists in Lagos on Friday night that the government had to lay the structure and establish a system before calling for private participation in the housing sector.
He said most of the building materials to be used would be sourced locally to fast-track growth and reduce unemployment.
“If we achieve what we are planning, we would have built a system; if it becomes enduring like the new pension scheme, the better.
“When acceptability has set in, the private sector can be called in,” he said, adding that the Federal Mortgage Bank would play a significant role in providing funds.”
Mr. Fashola said the socio-cultural needs of each geopolitical zone would be considered in arriving at what architectural designs to choose for a particular town. Babatunde Fashola
He said that the targeted group would be civil servants on levels eight to 15 and their contemporaries in the private sector who would spend an agreed number of years to pay for the houses.
According to the minister, once successfully established, it will be built on by successive administrations at all tiers of government and the private sector.
Methodist priest kidnapped in Ibadan
The Punch reports that a reverend of the Methodist Church Nigeria, Akobo-Ojurin, Diocese of Agodi, Ibadan, Dr. Biodun Ogunbekun
A reverend of the Methodist Church Nigeria, Akobo-Ojurin, Diocese of Agodi, Ibadan, Dr. Biodun Ogunbekun, has been kidnapped by five gunmen who traced him to his farm at Kufi area along Olounda-Aba road, Ibadan.
The Diocesan Bishop of the cathedral, Rt. Rev. Amos Ajiboye, said in a press statement he issued on Friday that Ogunbekun was kidnapped around 7pm on Thursday as he was leaving his farm.
He said, “The whereabouts of the priest is still unknown. On behalf of the Prelate of the church, His Eminence, Dr. K. Uche, and the Archbishop of Ibadan, Most Rev. M.K. Stephen, I appeal to the Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi, the state Commissioner of Police and other security agencies to please assist in finding the whereabouts of the minister of God and help release him unhurt.”
While narrating the account of the kidnap, Ajiboye said Ogunbekun was on his farm with two of his staff members at the time. He explained that when he was to leave the farm, a gunman forced his way in as the gate was opened. Four other gunmen also appeared and grabbed Ogunbekun before taking him into the bush.
“We were told that the kidnapers did not come with any vehicle or motorcycle. They tried to take the priest away in his truck but they could not for some reason. They then decided to whisk him away on foot. We have alerted the police and they have visited the farm.”
Amnesty calls on Nigeria to stop demolishing more settlements after 30,000 become homeless
From Reuters, Amnesty International called on Nigeria to shelve plans to demolish more illegal settlements in the megacity Lagos as several hundreds of thousands of people could be made homeless, it said on Friday.
Some 30,000 residents of a waterside slum in the commercial capital, a city of 23 million, lost their traditional homes this week after state-ordered demolition and fighting between rival communities, residents said.
The London-based rights group said officials needed to provide alternative accommodation for residents and investigate why police and a Lagos agency had destroyed their housing despite a court ban until there had been a hearing.
“The authorities involved in this destruction are in flagrant violation of the law,” it said in a statement.
It called on Lagos state to stop any mass evictions after announcing plans last month to remove all illegal waterside communities until rules were in place to follow international law.
Police have denied claims by Lagos-based Justice and Empowerment Initiatives (JEI) that it had destroyed any buildings this week. It also denied it had a role in the reported drowning of four people which the rights group said had run into water after officers had opened fire.
Lagos officials could not be reached for comment.
The violence highlights the challenges of a rapidly rising population unable to provide enough jobs and housing for its 180 million people. Many end up trying to migrate to Europe by boat from lawless Libya.
Rights groups such as JEI say Lagos carries out demolitions to remove poor from attractive buildings sites — Lekki island, the site of this week’s demolitions, is a prime site for real estate developers, who have been building luxury apartments and skyscrapers.
Officials have tried to attract more investment into Africa’s largest economy struggling with recession due to slump in oil prices.
The overcrowding in Lagos looks likely to continue. By 2050, Nigeria’s population is set to more than double to 400 million, making it the world’s third most populous nation after China and India, according to U.N. estimates.
From The Punch, Boko Haram used Chibok ransom to buy powerful weapons – Military sources
The recent ransom paid to Boko Haram in exchange for the release of some Chibok girls have contributed to the recent upsurge in the killings and disappearances of soldiers engaged in the fight against the insurgents, senior military sources have revealed.
The military men told Saturday PUNCH that despite denials by the Federal Government, money was paid to the sect to secure the release of the abducted girls.
It was learnt that the insurgents demanded for $50m for the release of the girls but about a quarter of the sum was eventually paid.
Saturday PUNCH learnt that the Federal Government paid the cash in two currencies – the naira and the CFA Francs to the leaders of the sect to facilitate the release of the girls.
But, the highly-ranked military men who are engaged in the war, and who craved anonymity because they were not authorised to speak for the military authorities, attributed the recent upsurge in the activities of the insurgents to the huge ransom paid for the release of the girls.
Prior to the current increase in the attacks by the insurgents, it was learnt that the troops of Operation Lafiya Dole, deployed in the North-East, had effectively cut off food and logistics supply to the insurgents.
Some of the sources, who are also commanders at the war front, said that the troops had effectively defeated the Boko Haram members, who were on the run while a good number of them had surrendered and taken to a rehabilitation camp established by the Defence Headquarters in Yola.
In October, 83 soldiers were reported missing days after they came under a Boko Haram attack. Though there have been increasing reports of soldiers either missing or killed since the Chibok girls were released, the military initially denied the report, it later said that only 39 soldiers were missing.
Also, on November 4, seven military men, including Lt. Col. Muhammad Abu-Ali, were killed on their way to reinforce troops at Mallam Fatori during a Boko Haram attack. Two days later, one soldier was also killed while four others were wounded in the line of duty.
In October, 21 of the over 200 girls abducted from their school in Chibok, Borno State, in April 2014 were released by the group.
However, the Federal Government denied exchanging insurgents for the abducted girls and paying a ransom to the sect.
But the military sources insisted that Boko Haram did not release the girls without getting anything in return and that the Federal Government indeed paid a ransom and released some of the group’s strategists that were detainees.
One of the sources said it was sad that the same government that was initially seen as tough enough to end insurgency in the country failed to negotiate with Boko Haram from a position of strength.
“It is unfortunate that in government’s desperation to secure the release of the Chibok girls, it has put our (soldiers’) lives in danger by yielding to the demands of the group to collect a ransom and secure the release of its commanders.
“It is now obvious that the group has reinforced and bought more weapons to fight us.”
According to another source, left to the military, the ransom and the exchange of Boko Haram members for Chibok girls would not have taken place.
“Funds were given to Boko Haram and now we can all see the result of that action; there have been renewed attacks recently and many of our men have been killed in the process but we will not relent, we will continue to do our best to secure this nation.
“The military had reservations about the arrangement but it was not in our hands; it was a political decision that we had to abide with and it was the DSS that was directly in charge of the operation,” the source added.
Another source, who is also active in the war theatre, said, “They got the Chibok girls and suddenly the Boko Haram that we had beaten and chased out of Sambisa are attacking and killing men of quality.
“It is very obvious that they have used the money they got from the deal to buy equipment and recruit men to carry out their heinous acts.
“The group is still in Mallam Fatori, they have infested the entire area and their strongest point into Chad is Abadam. It is from there that they disperse their men to carry out attacks.
“Another thing you must note is that the towns around the borders are occupied by mercenaries from foreign countries. Where did they get the money to fund that?”
Investigation revealed that Boko Haram members, who were routed out of their dreaded Sambisa enclave by the military, had regrouped at Abadam, and were still holding onto the fringes of Mallam Fatori in the northern part of Borno State.
It was further gathered that the group was engaging the services of mercenaries with their operational base in Abadam in the far north, close to Chad.
The latest incidents contradict President Muhammadu Buhari’s assertion on December 24, 2015 that Nigeria had “technically” won the war against Boko Haram and that the militant group could no longer mount conventional attacks against security forces or population centres.
Following the President’s assertion, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, also said on December 27, 2015 that “we have been vindicated because Boko Haram have been decapitated compared to the past records.”
The sect gained international attention when it kidnapped 219 Chibok schoolgirls on April 14, 2014.
Two years later, on April 10, 2016, the group said it wanted a $50m (N15.7bn) ransom to free the Chibok girls, according to a report by The Sunday Telegraph of London.
The publication said it gathered from sources close to the sect that the demand was made “during secret contacts with the government of President Muhammadu Buhari, who has said he is willing to negotiate for the girls’ freedom.”
The sect’s six-year insurgency has led to the deaths of over 17,000 people, destruction of more than 1,000 schools and displacement of about two million people.
Between May 2015 when President Buhari assumed office and October 2016, the insurgents have carried out over 20 attacks, leading to the deaths of over 2,600 Nigerians.
However, Saturday PUNCH learnt on Friday that combined forces of the ground troops, the fighter pilots of the Nigerian Air Force and local hunters had been deployed to fight the insurgents around some locations in Gwoza.
When one of our correspondents contacted the Acting Director, Defence Information, Brig. Gen. Rabe Abubakar, he said that the minor setback in the operations should not be taken to mean that the Boko Haram was a formidable force.
He told one of our correspondents on the telephone that the military was determined to defend the territorial integrity of the country and was equipped to do so.
He gave the assurance that Boko Haram would not achieve its objective of acquiring any territory in the country.
He said, “The group is not a force to be reckoned with as far as the military is concerned.
“In spite of the minor setback, it does not in any way mean that the Boko Haram is a force to be reckoned with. We will defend the integrity of Nigeria to the letter, and that is what we are committed to do.”
Faulting the payment of cash to the sect as a ransom for the girls, a United Kingdom- trained criminologist and Chairman of Puma Eye Security Services, Mr. Pedro Ayandokun, said it had to be responsible for the renewed terrorist attacks in the country.
He said, “I was never in support of making any exchange with Boko Haram. That is what is creating the problem. What they have got will not be used to buy rice, but to acquire ammunition.”
Also, the Chief Executive Officer of Security Watch Africa, Patrick Agbamu, said giving cash to the insurgents would encourage them to kidnap more girls.
He said, “The government ought not to give money to the terrorists. It will embolden them to kidnap more girls.”
Despite the insurgents’ recent attacks, Agbamu, however, asked for patience, saying, “Up till today, there are still attacks in Afghanistan and Iran. Insurgency is not easily stopped.”
The President of the Association of Industrial Security and Safety Operators of Nigeria, Dr. Ona Ekhomu, also said if the Federal Government gives money to the insurgents, it could empower them to carry out more attacks.
He said at a time when the sect was broke, giving money to them might be all they needed to regain more strength.
He said, “There were insinuations that for the 21 girls released recently by the insurgents, cash was given to the terrorists. Cash is exactly what the terrorists need to be strengthened.”
Likewise, a professor of African History, Peace and Conflict Studies and Director, Institute of Peace and Strategic Studies, University of Ibadan, Isaac Albert, said government had not been negotiating with Boko Haram from a position of strength.
He said, “We have said for some time now that we have defeated the sect but it is obvious that it is not true.”
No cash involved in Chibok girls’ release
But the Presidency on Friday insisted that the Federal Government did not pay members of the Boko Haram sect to secure freedom for the 21 Chibok girls.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, said the position of government remains that cash was not involved in the release.
“Information Minister, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, told the country that there was no cash involvement in the release of the 21 Chibok girls. If you have evidence that it was not so, simply produce it,” he said.
However, one of the lawmakers involved in the negotiation which led to the release of the 21 girls, confirmed that a ransom was paid to Boko Haram but said the amount was far less than $50m.
The source, who expressed shock when one of our correspondents put the question to him to confirm the payment, agreed to speak on condition of anonymity.
He said, “I don’t think it is up to that amount. Yes, there was a deal. Something like that (payment of a ransom) happened but it was never near the amount you just mentioned; it is even not up to a quarter of that amount. I can tell you that it was done (paid).
“I can also tell you that the second round of the talk was scuttled because of the disagreement on the next tranche of a ransom. The negotiation for another batch of the girls has hit the brick wall as a result of the failure to agree on an amount (to be paid as a ransom). I am speaking to you on this authoritatively.”
