Amnesty International Report Not True- Nigerian Military

0
The Nigerian military have faulted the claims of Amnesty
International that they got a 4-hour advanced warning of the school girls’ raid
which took place last month in Chibok. The Director of Defence Information, Chris
Olukolade said AI’s allegation is very “unfortunate and untrue”.
Stating that the Nigerian military received information of the
on-going attack from troops on patrol, after which they attacked the terrorists
and called for more reinforcement.



He
said that as the troops on reinforcement made their way from Maiduguri to
Chibok, they ran into an ambush by terrorists who engaged them in fierce fire
fight and a number of soldiers lost their lives in the battle.

He
also said another set of soldiers mobilized for the mission arrived after the
terrorists had escaped due to a series of misleading information that slowed
down the pursuit.

Emphasising that the Division Headquarters in Maiduguri
received a reinforcement call and not a forewarning as speculated by Amnesty
International.
