highhandedness

The spokesperson of the Chibok
community Manasseh Allen has accused
a Nigerian army senior officer of
threatening to shoot him and some of
his colleagues in Chibok.
Allen in a statement said the
commanding officer assigned to the
community manhandled Chibok
residents.
He added that the CO was rigid and
never welcome any form of suggestions
from residents all through his stay in
the community.

Allen said the CO was “unfriendly,
unprofessional and brutish".
He said : “Having spent about two years
in Chibok, the CO was sent on a course
and the people felt great relief from his
unfriendly, unprofessional and brutish
style of interacting with locals in
Chibok."

“Accused of divisive tendencies along
religious lines, he once threatened to
shoot us when IG Wala, Olatunji Lanre-
Baruwa, Bukky Shonibare and I were on
a humanitarian outing to Chibok," Allen
said.
Allen added that the CO kept him and
his colleagues standing for hours.
"I begged him for 30 minutes to allow me
see my sick dad and for the team to give
relief materials to parents of the
abducted school girls in Chibok.
“While on course, the people thought the
end of the operational style of such an
officer had gone. The community,
through its Chairman made several
reports to the District Head on the
matter in writing, aside several reports
to the Chief of Army Staff.
“Shockingly, the same Commanding
Officer has now been re-posted to Chibok
and moved to mount Kautikari, one of
the largest villages in Chibok, near the
Boko Haram terrorists crossing point.



“We plead for immediate return of the
former Commanding Officer to Chibok,
who worked day and night to secure
Chibok and its environs with serious
coordination between his team and youth
vigilantes.” he said.
Meanwhile, the president of the United
States of America Donald Trump spoke
to President Muhammadu Buhari over
the telephone on Monday, February 13.
Trump encouraged Buhari on his effort
to eliminate Boko Haram insurgents
from Nigeria.
He also commended Buhari on his effort
to securing the release of the Chibok
school girls abducted by Boko Haram
members on April 14, 2014.
