Babangida Warns President Buhari Over Boko Haram
Former military president, General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (retd), has told the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to also use psychological and unconventional methods in fighting the Boko Haram insurgency in the North East.
Babangida gave this advice during an exclusive interview with Ladi Akeredolu-Ale on Channels Television.
IBB pointed out that it would be a mistake to use regular war tactics against the insurgents.
“You have to find a way of countering that information they dish out,” he said.
Babangida added that government should embark on sensitisation campaigns in a bid to “dish out a lot of not so good information about the other people (terrorists) so that the populace will have confidence that no matter what happens, the military is there to protect them.”
