According to reports, The Nigerian Army on Friday, December 14, came out to announce the suspension of UNICEF activities in the North East. According to Colonel Onyema Nwachukwu UNICEF of training selected persons to counter the anti-terrorism and anti-insurgency efforts of the Nigerian troops. In a statement released by the army they said; The theatre command operation Lafiya Dole has observed with dismay that some of the activities of International humanitarian agencies and Non-governmental organizations’ operating in the north-east have left so much to be desired. There is credible information that some of them are indulging in unwholesome practices that could further jeopardize the fight against terrorism and insurgency, as they train and deploy spies who support the insurgents and their sympathizers. “It is baffling to note that some of these organizations have been playing the terrorists’ script with the aim to continue demoralizing the troops who are doing so much to protect the lives of victims of Boko Haram terrorism and safeguard them from the wanton destruction of property and means the of livelihood. The theatre command considers the actions of these organizations as a direct assault and insults on the sensibilities of Nigerians, as they tend to benefit more from expanding the reign of terror on our people. Consequently, the theatre command operation Lafiya Dole is suspending the operations of the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) in the North East theatre until further notice. This has become inevitable since the organization has abdicated its primary duty of catering for the wellbeing of children and the vulnerable through humanitarian activities and now engaged in training selected persons for clandestine activities to continue sabotaging the counter-terrorism and Counterinsurgency efforts of troops through spurious and unconfirmed allegations bothering on alleged violations of human rights by the military.” Photo Credit: Getty
