Bandits Kidnap Lt. Col. N.B. Ahmed, Commanding Officer by Islie: 9:57pm On Jan 08, 2023
A Lieutenant Colonel of the Nigerian Army, N.B. Ahmed has been abducted following an ambush on a military convoy by gunmen suspected to be terrorists.

SaharaReporters gathered that the senior military officer was abducted along Tsafe (Zamfara)/Funtua (Katsina) road on Friday, January 6.

The abducted officer is the new commanding officer of the 8 Division of the Nigerian Army, Sokoto.

“Our new boss who resumed on Friday was attacked while being escorted to Kano. He was taken away by the gunmen,” a military source told SaharaReporters.

A military signal exclusively obtained by SaharaReporters also confirmed the incident.

The signal was however silent on others travelling with Ahmed.

It read, “TEXT: SP SITREP ON KIDNAPPED OF SNR OFFR. LT COL NB AHMED (N/12022). A/N SNR OFFR WAS KIDNAPED ALONG TSAFE/FUNTUA RD ON 06 JAN 23 AT ABOUT 2000HRS WHILE TRAVELING TO KANO FOR WEEKEND. THE SNR OFFR JUST TAKES OVER COMD OF 8 BOD AS A CO ON THE SAME DATE. THIS IS FOR YOUR INFO AND NEC ACTION. PSE ACCEPT FOR ACTION AND ACK///.”

This comes a few days after a female Lieutenant, P. P. Johnson was abducted by unknown gunmen in Imo State.

A trending video in December 2022 showed the female officer being tortured by gunmen after she was abducted while visiting her grandmother in Aku-Okigwe community.

“She was just conferred with the rank of Lieutenant in the Nigerian Army. She passed out on December 17 after being commissioned from the Direct Short Service Course,” a military source had said.

“She was kidnapped at her home in Ibube. She travelled home for the Yuletide celebration.”

In the clip obtained by SaharaReporters, one of the unknown gunmen was heard threatening to kill the officer for being a member of the Nigerian Army.

He also warned youths against joining the military and other security agencies.

The officer was stripped naked and her hands and legs were tied. She was seated on the ground in a bushy area.

A whole commanding officer

No piim from the army, or army of utchins

If this happened in okigwe or Akure, they will kill hundreds and sack the whole city.

A tale of two countries.

And to those of you from SE , please when you see uniform personnel coming towards you, just avoid them and if possible take another route cause is better to be safe than be sorry

To make it worse, they intend to release the so-called "repentant terrorists" into the society.

This is very saddening and worrisome.

The abducted officer is the new commanding officer of the 8 Division of the Nigerian Army, Sokoto.

A Lt.Colonel commanding a Division ?

I thought this rank is meant for a Company not a Brigade and definitely not a Division that is reserved for a Maj.General.

Edited : I have been rightly notified by some posters here that the Lt Col is not the new GOC of 8th Division but a unit commander of a company under the Division.

I think he is a CO of one of the units inside the Division and not the GOC of the division.

We're worse than pathetic as a country, and it makes me shudder.

This can't happen in any serious country, where outlaws operating within the territorial borders of a country would intercept a military convoy and abduct the commanding officer. Such a shame.

A retired Assistant Superintendent of Police, Olufemi Ajisafe, stated that the move was an agenda that must be stopped, noting that terrorists do not just repent.

“Terrorists are not thieves or armed robbers. They are hard-core killers and they do not repent. So, I am surprised that the Army is falling for this agenda. That blood is still in them; it is a movement for them. It is not just criminality for these people.


“These people committed offences that they should either be killed or kept away from social life for as long as they live. We are talking about Boko Haram here, for God’s sake. How do you de-radicalise Boko Haram? Is it not similar to giving them more power to strike? They should be arrested and prosecuted.”
Guess the senseless and useless army and govt just released 619 so called fucking killers as repentant, rehabilitated and de-radicalised terrorists? Let's see where all these stupid shenanigans lead this already beleaguered nation.

This tory dey somehow oooo.
How does terrorists get to know that he will be traveling that day, the time and route he will be taking for them to be able to successfully ambush him? Cos these are sensitive information that is only shared with few officers.

If those ragtag terrorists can carry out a sophisticated operation like this on an officer of such rank, then how secure are the civilians? Does it mean we are just a sitting duck to them?

Shame on this people!

Better FG bury the thoughts of releasing repentant terrorists back to the society. If anything, it has further worsened the fight against insecurity. The number of bandits occupying different forests in the North is estimated up to 100,000. They are several factions of them. The reports I got about them is scary. I don't see how banditry would be completely eliminated in the North. With different factions of Ipob in the SE too, I'm beginning to fear for the SE.
