A few days ago, we severely knocked an article written by a certain Ola Bello loosely titled “BOKO HARAM: HOW THE EUROPEAN UNION SHOULD REACT”.

In it, the writer suggested that the US-trained commandos, K9 sniffer dog teams and combat engineers of the Nigerian Army were not being deployed operationally. In response, we said that not only were they going round to defuse IEDs strewn malevolently everywhere by insurgents but also, that they are working in sync with JSTF counterinsurgency units at the frontlines.

When some of these overly critical but mostly insufficiently well-grounded analysts come in for severe knocks on this blog, it is because we have the strength of our convictions. We are on ground.

Hey Tim, does this tell a true story, repudiate lies or does it also offer foreign spies free intelligence? My view is that IF you allow a lie to be told repeatedly without any reality checks, lies could easily get passed off for the truth.

How do you copy?

    Information at disposal on this blog….Priceless.
    N.b Beegeagle critics will always be everywhere sometimes they prompt us to discharge more effective duties.
    I think in this case it helped to get all this pictures of our combat engineers and their operational duties.

      Thank you, Julius.

      I similarly read your highly uplifting comments about this blog the other day. We are challenged to make it better and unpredictable everyday because of people like you.

      When we were starting this blog, it was because we had concluded that the olden days traditions of secrecy had gravely injured the interest of an otherwise brave, experienced and battle-hardened military. That veil of “secure security” around the military, in my opinion, grossly undermines the capacity of our people to learn about and appreciate our military. It gets worse when wannabe analysts from the outside spew utter gibbberish which only serves to show that they do not have a toehold in the reality of what really goes on.

      If the Army would not repudiate, they can at least EDUCATE and INFORM as the main plank of PsyOps. COIN operations are all about popular perceptions which stem from games of hearts and minds between forces opposed to each other. If you demonstrably have the upper hand, people would easily move over to your side.

      Why would any military expect support from a public which does not feel acquainted to the institution because the very things which people need to see, in order that they might believe and SUPPORT, are kept shrouded in secrecy? It is clearly counterproductive.

      That was why this week’s sitrep from the frontlines which was written by Lt Colonel Sagir Musa remains a defining moment in military-civil communications in Nigeria. It has set a new and enviable standard which is deserving of emulation.
