Boko Haram, attention seeking group – SSS


Director-General, State Security Service, Ekpenyong Ita yesterday, said terrorists craved media attention for their dastardly actions to intimidate and instil fear in the people. He made the disclosure while declaring open a week-long security training programme for the media at the SSS-owned Institute for Security Studies, Bwari, Abuja.

Ita explained that the objective of terrorist groups was to maximize publicity for their attacks to have a larger than life reputation. He, therefore, urged journalists to avoid sensationalism in their reportage, while considering national security in their responsibilities of providing information to the public.

The DG said most terrorist groups pursued the interests of their sponsors, but noted that nobody knows the interests being pursued by the militant Islamic sect, Boko Haram “as they do not represent Muslims.” Ita observed that terrorists often got more attention from the media than security agencies that strove to protect the nation from the evil machinations of such violent groups as the Boko Haram sect.

He said: “Publicity is the oxygen craved by terrorists. When they carry out attacks, they want as much publicity as possible and when the media sensationalise such an attack, the terror groups have achieved their objectives of getting wide media publicity which is aimed at intimidating and instilling fear in people.” “Acts of terrorism are over-covered by the media while the activities of security agencies were under-covered.

Terrorists strive to project the interests of those they are acting for but we don’t know the interest Boko Haram is fighting because they don’t represent Muslims.” In a paper presented at the workshop, the Director-General, Nigerian Television Authority, Alhaji Musa Maiyaki, spoke on the need for a cordial relationship between the media and security agencies as it concerns threat against terrorism.

He noted that terrorists thrived on media exposure and flayed the government for treating Boko Haram like a ground troop. END

    Our leaders are supporting evil and afraid to speak the truth. Boko haram is an evil religion being supported by majority of Northern nigerian wealthy Musslim.

    Boko haram sect are not muslims, if you dont know, know it now. The religion of Islam means “PEACE”. Those refered to as boko haram are unbelievers, devils and not muslims, so, Nigerians ! stop calling them muslims, because they are not.

    • Goloba December 4, 2012 at 9:18 pm

      BH is Hausa Fulani masterplan You are right ! northern Hausa Fulani muslims are behind BH ,other ethnic small groups with muslim populations joined in later out of Islamic fervour and this is not new.Hausa Fulani have been killing people and burning properties for decades .Go to Jos .

    Alhaji Dan Azumi ! All the leaders of Boko Haram and the arrested ones, Their names is muslim or christian? Show me how many mosques they have burn or kill their worshippers? Tell me notable muslims that have publicly condemn their action? The fact remain that nothern muslims supported their action, and known politician are sponsoring them.

    The issue of Boko Haram is a double-edged sword for the faithful muslims in Nigeria and only God in his infinite mercy will expose the truth. The muslims in Arab nations are forced to turned to terrorism because the Americans invaded their country and are stealing their oil. The have no any power but to resort to terrorism. Remember there is a grand plan by the US to take over all oil fields in the Middle East since 1975. Oil is a curse to the Arabs and not a blessing. The plan to destroy northern Nigeria is there for long. Why is it that we do not have Boko Haram in the west. The population of muslims in the West is more than that of christians. Muslims are not terrorist. If you remember very well Mohammed Yusuf was sponsored to create Boko haram and even before his pronounciation becomes public. He was almost convince by Mallam Jafar to denounce his BK intention. However, he feel that will bring his dignity far too low and that is what made him to continue his BK until he was captured and kill in 2009. If we can have peace by dividing the country so be it. It is better to stay poor with peace than rich with insecurity. Please let us hasten and organize how we can go our separate way in peace. I know that among my best friends are christians.

    Noting 2 comment, ds issues ar 4 Nigerian state which i did not belong. On Aburi accord we stand. On Biafra we stand.

    Some of our security officers at times talk like a dumb ass. ”The DG said most terrorist groups pursued the interests of their sponsors, but noted that nobody knows the interests being pursued by the militant Islamic sect, Boko Haram “as they do not represent Muslims.” Mr DD, can you tell us how they are not muslems, when they are burning churches, bombing churches, killing people come back from curch, shouting Alahu kuba, KILLING PEOPLE DINKING ALKOCOL etc . Brothers and sisters it is A Jihadic war that is going on in Northern nigeria, which they want to use to bring back the nort to islam . and the aim of islam is to instill fear to the hearts of the people.

    Islam means violence and the world knows that. Look at the situation in afghanistan, Iraq, libya, egypt, iran(axis of evil) and currently syria…these are core muslim countries that never for one day like peace. Honestly the demon that possesed mohammed is demon of violence nd that is what we are witnessing today. Islam mean violence. It is the high time muslims come to terms with the truth and come out from that evil/demonised religion otherwise them and their 72 virgins will rot in hell.

    Islam =murder.I hate ALL muslim irrespective of what they claim.To me,all of them are bloodthirsty murderers and should be hunted down and shot like the dogs they are.MALLAM MUSLIMS,GO KILL YOUR LEADERS WHO TURNED YOUR WIVES AND SISTERS TO PROSTITUTES AND BEGGARS IN THE LAND OF THE INFIDELS.(SOUTH).YOUR MEN ARE MOSTLY TOOTHLESS OR AMPUTATED OR BOTH.
