During the week, an exposé by The Wall Street Journal uncovering the truth about the real state of terrorism in Nigeria sparked conversations online. Most specifically, the report detailed how soldiers slain the fight against Boko Haram were covertly buried in mass graves, and hence refuting President Buhari’s statement that Nigeria is winning in the war against terrorism.
As such, political figures weighed like former presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar weighed in on the shocking exposé, expressing his sadness and extending commiserations to the families of the slain soldiers. Furthermore, there were political bickering and counter-accusations across party affiliations, which just shows how no one will be held accountable this horrendous plot.
A group known as the National Democratic Forum, NDF warned Atiku against dramatising a story published by Wall Street Journal on the alleged secret burial of slain army officers in the North East. It issued the warning to Atiku while insisting that the report was planted by some enemies of the country in the foreign media just to blackmail the Nigerian Army.
