`Nobody Will Disrespect My Mother!’ || Maj. Gen. Olukolade Drops Verbal Explosives On Niger (READ)

The multi-national joint forces, which comprises of Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad and Niger, was formed for a reason – to collectively prosecute the war against terrorist sect, Boko Haram.

What the initiators may or may have not envisaged was the emergence of unhealthy competition and confrontation between soldiers and officers of the countries… however, the first of this kind of confrontation has commenced. Earlier in the week, the Niger Defence Ministry released a statement, where it took a direct swipe at the Nigerian Army, saying: “Our soldiers are not like Nigerians. They don’t run.”

Many Nigerians were displeased with the comment and social media users in particular, expressed their displeasure, but the Army stayed mute on the matter for a couple of days, until the night of Thursday, February 12.

On Thursday, the Nigerian Defence Headquarters spokesperson, Major Gen. Chris Olukolade, finally responded to the insulting taunt of the Nigerien army.

In a series of tweets, Olukolade attacked Niger’s army, while at the same time defended the honour of the Nigerian army and its soldiers.

He accused the Nigerien army of being known for looting and getting engaged in mercenary activities, while also going further to say some of them are paid agents of the Boko Haram, as a result of the poverty in their country.

It remains to be seen, what impact the verbal exchange will have on the operation of the multi-national joint forces.

Read below, the tweets put out by Olukolade:
