Boko Haram Exposed the Corrupt and Incompetent Leadership of Nigerian Army

The misappropriations of the revenue allocations for the Ministry of Defence in the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan left the Nigerian military handicapped to prosecute the war against Boko Haram terrorists on rampage in the north east of Nigeria.
An ill-equipped army is already half defeated.

The Nigerian military should have defeated Boko Haram since 2011. But the election of the corrupt and incompetent President worsened the insurgency. He was a visionless and weak Commander-in-Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces. He did not know how to command and lead the Nigerian military.

Boko Haram infiltrated the Nigerian military and planted their spies and recruited saboteurs. They knew the formations and plans of the Nigerian Army.
Boko Haram terrorists moved about in convoys of Toyota Hilux trucks and motorcycles without any airstrike by the Nigerian Air force. They had markets where they traded without any attack by the Nigerian military. They went to banks and had regular suppliers of their provisions and weapons.

Failure of military intelligence made the Nigerian Army to become a sitting duck target for Boko Haram. Military intelligence would have been enough to exterminate the insurgency years ago, but the Nigerian government used the Boko Haram as an excuse to misappropriate billions of dollars and caused the preventable deaths of more than 20, 000 innocent Nigerians and more than 1, 000, 000 Nigerians were sacked from their homes and became either Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) or refugees in the neighbouring countries of Chad, Niger and Cameroon. And Boko Haram terrorists still attacked their fleeing victims.

It was shocking to see the new President Muhammadu Buhari telling the heart broken parents of the missing Chibok school girls that he did not know their whereabouts; displaying to the whole world the failure of military intelligence.
The school girls who escaped from the trucks of the Boko Haram terrorists after they were kidnapped from their dormitory on the night of 14–15 April 2014, should have given the Nigerian military enough information to track and locate the other kidnapped girls who couldn't escape.

Military surveillance drones should have been enough to find them. Drones would have been enough to attack Boko Haram terrorists when they were recording their propaganda videos on open grounds. But they were left to roam the north east like they were untouchables.

The corrupt and incompetent leadership of the Nigerian military failed to protect and save the north east from Boko Haram until the new administration of President Buhari removed the corrupt and incompetent Service Chiefs. But the new military leadership is still displaying failure of military intelligence in modern warfare.

Lashing out at people does not make you a good communicator. You have got a point, you want to convey it, you must see to it that most if not all get your point. So major more in explaining your text to those that don't understand and not insult their "v"

It is obvious the rejection of western education runs deep within our defence system and intelligence gathering setup. If it was advance country, terrestial satelites (drone) would av tracked those girls and BH.
