Sakaba’s widow accuse Nigeria Army of killing her husband over Boko Haram funds loot

luwaseun, the widow of Ibrahim Sakaba, a lieutenant-colonel, has accused the Nigerian Army of killing her husband because he “refused to be part of their plots” to loot funds meant to prosecute the Boko Haram war.

Her disclosure followed the army’s statement that 1,081 Boko Haram terrorists purportedly surrendered in Bama on Monday.

Photos shared on the army’s social media page saw the surrendered terrorists display several placards with inscriptions such as “Nigerians, please forgive us,” “surrender and live,” “surrender and be free,” among others.

While sharing the photos of the surrendered insurgents on her Instagram page, Ms. Sakaba alleged that the army was responsible for the death of her husband, said to have died during a Boko Haram attack on a battalion in Borno.

Ibrahim Sakaba,

“I should forgive them for making many women widows and kids fatherless. I should forgive them for (your failure to pay) my late husband dues! I should forgive them for all their atrocities done to my family,” she wrote. “You shot my husband dead in his office that you pretended to be a friendly force just because he refused (sic) to be part of your plots. Time for dragging now.”

Lambasting the army’s statement, Ms. Sakaba said, “You are complete assh*les to even have the intermediary to post this on your page! Like you kidding me … all the pains families and loved ones have suffered we (sic) be on your head… you nitwits… all the blood of soldiers we ask you all.”

When reached for further clarifications on her claims, Mr Sakaba’s widow told Peoples Gazette that she would not be “spilling” more details at the moment.

Also, the spokesperson for the army, Onyema Nwachukwu, did not immediately return The Gazette’s request seeking comments on the allegation.

Mr. Sakaba died alongside 117 other soldiers in November 2018, after Boko Haram insurgents attacked a Nigerian Army battalion in Borno State.
