Intelligence Report Declares Biafra Agitators, IMN, Boko Haram Threats to National Security

Muhammadu Buhari

A report emanating from the Office of the National Security Adviser (NSA) to President Muhammadu Buhari has declared secessionist agitation groups like the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) as a threat to the nation’s security.

Other groups declared as enemies of the state are Boko Haram terrorists, Niger Delta militants, Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN or the Shiite group), Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS recruitment cells, armed herdsmen, cattle rustling and gun running syndicates.

Classified documents sighted by THISDAY titled: ‘2016 Annual Threat Assessment’, showed that a multi-agency and multi-disciplinary organisation called the Intelligence Fusion Centre (IFC) has been created to analyse information from different sources and agencies with respect to threat to the country.

IFC will then integrate all information gathered by different security agencies into a single intelligence product.
The IFC, intelligence sources said, would make it easier for security agencies to share information.

In determining which organisation constitutes a threat to the country, the IFC considers both intent and capability.
“For it is the combination of these two factors that most sharply characterises the significance of these threats to the security of Nigeria,” the 2016 Annual Threat Assessment stated.

“The above classification, perhaps explains the decision to clamp down on both the IMN and IPOB.”
International human rights organisations such as the Amnesty International reported that excessive forces were used by Nigerian security agencies in dealing with both IMN and IPOB.
Until last week, the leaders of both groups were kept in jail. However, IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, was granted bail under stringent conditions which those in authorities believed he would not be able to meet.

Kanu however pulled a surprise and fulfilled all the bail conditions. He was consequently released.
But leader of IMN, Sheikh Ibrahim el-Zakzaky, was not as lucky. He had been in jail for almost a year and a half.

An order of a Federal High Court directing government to free him and his wife was not complied with. The decision to disobey the court order might have been informed by intelligence classifying the group he leads as a threat to the nation.

Meanwhile, the London-based Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) has written to President Muhammadu Buhari asking him to release Zakzaky on medical grounds.

A copy of the letter obtained by THISDAY reads: “Concerns are mounting for the Sheikh’s deteriorating health following injuries sustained from gunshot wounds during the military assault against the IMN in December 2015.

“During that attack in Zaria in which over 1,000 people were killed, Sheikh Zakzaky lost the use of an arm and one of his eyes.
“Since then, together with his wife, he has been in the custody of Nigeria’s domestic intelligence agency Department of Security Service (DSS), detained without charge. Reports from family members now indicate that he is in real danger of losing sight in his other eye.

“Despite repeated pleas Sheikh Zakzaky has not been allowed access to suitable medical treatment. The most immediate requirement is for him to be seen by a specialist opthalmologist in a well-equipped facility where treatment can be urgently administered if deemed to be necessary.
“You will no doubt be mindful of the fact that prompt and effective intervention can help secure the best medical outcomes for patients. This is why you yourself have travelled to London to seek medical treatment twice since last June.

“Having availed yourself of the opportunity to access specialist treatment, it would surely be wrong of you to prevent other Nigerian citizens from doing the same whether that it is inside or outside the country.
“Sheikh Zakzaky is a double victim. Firstly, he is being held illegally by the DSS in flagrant violation of a recent High Court order demanding his release. At the same time, the detaining authorities are preventing him from receiving urgent medical attention which is only aggravating his condition.
“In the interests of justice, compassion and fairness. we urge you to immediately allow Sheikh Zakzaky to access urgent medical care and release him unconditionally in line with the law and due process.”

      To my best knowledge on this write-ups, no Biafra agitator has any time raised a knife let alone a deadly weapon,hence including the agitators is nothing but miscarriage of judgment and a pathological lie.It’s the agitators that are being killed in their numbers. Mr proud of neger,say what you know or have you been bought over?

        I am a NIGGER and a NIGGER i will FOREVER BE.
        Nigger means ‘LITTLE GOD’ in the old Egyptian language.
        See below(THE WORD NAGA N NIGGER
        HOW THE WORD FOR GOD N-G-R BECAME NIGGER
        The ancient Egyptians called their Pharaohs “N-G-R” (Net-ger) because the Egyptian Pharaoh was seen as a representation of the sun and the Sun God. The original Pharaohs who were pure Black Africans SAW BLACK SKIN AS SACRED AND A DIRECT BLESSING FROM THE SUN GOD, ATEN. In fact Blackness and black skin became associated with God and the sun. BLACK PEOPLE WERE POWERFUL, CULTURALLY ADVANCED, MILITARILY
        SUPERIOR, BLACK/DARKBROWN IN COMPLEXION, STRONG STATURE, TALL AND
        DESCRIBED AS A “HANDSOME” RACE , (SEE HERODOTUS, “THE HISTORIES,
        DESCRIPTIONS OF “ETHIOPIANS” OF AFRICA AND SOUTH INDIA).
        The recognition of the Pharaoh as a living God and the black skin as a blessing spread worldwide
        to other cultures. In fact the term “Net-ger” became the Ethiopian “Negus” or “Negashi.”
        In the Sudroid (Indo-Negroids of India) languages of India, which are part of the Cushite branch
        of the African languages, the term “Naga” denotes original or first.
        In fact, in ancient India, the people with the blackest skins were respected and held to igh esteem,
        unlike today where the racist, colonialist and alien concept of “varna” or castecolor racism places
        Sudroids, Indo-Negroids, Black Tribals, Dalits, Negro-Australoids and other BLACKS AT THE
        VERY BOTTOM OF iNDIAN SOCIETY.
        See http://www.dalitstan.org/books/sud...
        The term “Ngola” (Angola) means “King” in the Angolan languages. This term was mistaken by
        the Portugese to mean the DESCRIBE “Ndongo,” the kingdom.).
        You are an Albino pink-Red-milk color human being.
        Go ahead and cry out even more loudly.
        A scammer like you and your cohorts who tell the world how they Aid and invest around the world even when it just AIR TALK is calling some a scammer????Just be ashamed of yourself.
        All you know is WIN by all means.
        Donald duck trumpf has proven it today once again to the world.
        Bundles of Nonentities,thieves and killers,war mongers and mineral natural resources looters.
        Bernie Madoff family members and illusion back criminals.
        witches and wizards and flying anyhow

    For God’s sake, can’t this country for one day speak the TRUTH. They called self determination-every human right, A Threat. Have you ever heard they apprehended any herdsmen? We keep hearing the tales of their killings frequently. I must confess,I’m short of words to describe the STATUS of this country, but it’s certain”the more You bury the TRUTH, the more you BURY the COUNTRY & its citizens in PERPETUAL GLOOMINESS & CONFUSION.Are there not many countries within this Democratic era that have divided even into three visible existing nations today through same process? Nigeria calls it a Threat. Where is the place of Education ( literacy,freedom of speech, expression of human rights without weapons, etc.) in this country. It’s a shame speaking of this. The country is depreciating on litanies. She keeps divulging to the entire world the LEVEL of her UNDERSTANDING & acceptance /PRACTICE of DEMOCRACY.The Fulani herdsmen kill without fear,no arrest. Where they killed over twenty farmers, if for any reason one of them is killed, then reaction from their sponsors.Let there be referendum & stop impersonating & clamouring for non-existing unity.The masses are dying in silent.The few representatives that enrich themselves to the detriment of the masses portrays negative picture before the world.why not say the truth & be free.

    A movement of marginalised people seeking self actualisation can only be a threat to the country, if it is being stifled by the state in exercising its genuine political right. In that respect, it is the state itself that constitutes the threat, by its action of assaulting the group and movement. This report should therefore also have included the despotic rule of Buhari as a threat to security. Apart from Boko Haram whose sole aim is overthrow if the state, most of the problems with some of the other groups could have been avoided with some tact, and through dialogue. We are all witness to the difference dialogue has made today with the militancy of the Niger Delta. The highhanded military assault on the region by Buhari, got nowhere. Why not engage peacefully, instead of the crackdown on for instance IPOD? The crackdown should be against purely criminal groups like the herdsmen, cattle rustlers and gun runners. Certainly not for the mostly political groups, whose issues ought to be handled politically, instead of militarily.
