Governor Fayose describes U.S report as a confirmation of his earlier position that the F.G lied to Nigerians on Boko Haram defeat


Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has described the United States “Country Report on Terrorism 2016” and the Transparency International Report revealing corruption in the military as confirmation of his earlier position that the federal government lied to Nigerians that Boko Haram was technically defeated.

In a statement issued in Ado Ekiti on Wednesday by the governor’s Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, he also alleged a possible arranged release of some Chibok Girls by the federal government to divert attention of Nigerians and give the impression that it was making progress in the fight against the insurgents.

The US Department of State’s Bureau for Counterterrorism and Countering Violent Extremism had said in the report that the inability of security agencies in Nigeria to share intelligence report because of animosity is affecting the success in the fight against Boko Haram.

It went further to accuse the State Security Services (SSS) of failure to share intelligence report with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), thus making it harder to investigate Boko Haram financing.
