In tell-all video interview, military contractor blames Buhari and USA for Boko Haram escalating insurgency

This confirmed the report of PRNigeria that during the tenure of Sambo Dasuki as the National Security Adviser (NSA) under President Goodluck Jonathan, Nigerian troops with ‘foreign technical assistance’ recovered many towns and villages from Boko Haram terrorists in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe States. Some of the liberated towns then included, but are not limited to, Abadam, Askira, Baga, Bama, Bara, Buni Yadi, Damboa, Dikwa, Gamboru-Ngala, Goniri, Gujba, Gulag, Gulani, Gwoza, Hong, Kala Balge, Konduga, Kukawa, Marte, Madagali, Michika, Monguno, Mubi, and Vimtim, among other communities. The special operation also recorded a massive invasion of Sambisa Forest where 234 abductees (women and children) were rescued on a single day, April 30, 2015.

But regrettably, the first thing the President did upon assuming office in 2015, according to Barlow, was to terminate their military contract in a bid to gratify the United States of America, who he said sponsored Buhari’s campaign.

He firmly asserted that the US actually sponsored Buhari’s campaign, noting that the 2015 campaign manager for PMB is from US.

“The administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan saw the war against insurgency, and especially the contract with our private Army has a veritable tool to regain popularity among the masses.

“But the then incoming president, Muhammadu Buhari, was heavily supported by the US, and one of his first mission as President after May 2015, was to terminate their contract,” he said.

Asked why he thinks the US will intervene to abort their operation which was yielding success, Barlow, who is the author of “Composite Warfare: The Conduct of Successful Ground Force Operations in Africa”, explained: “I am not saying the US is a bad country. I also understand their foreign interest. But one would have thought that with the threat Boko Haram posed to Nigeria’s territorial integrity, they should be a priority for any country desirous of helping Nigeria eliminate them.”

He maintained that foreign forces have only prolonged, rather than end violent conflicts in most African States.
