Nigeria Needs Commandos and Mercenaries to Tackle the Storm Troopers of Boko Haram

The latest intelligence reports across the borders have confirmed that the dreaded Boko Haram Islamic terrorist sect on rampage in the middle belt and northern region of Nigeria is linked to the Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). The AQIM provided them training in guerrilla warfare and Islamic psychological warfare which the Boko Haram put to good use in their insurgency in Nigeria. Therefore, the Nigerian government must face the Boko Haram with drastic counter insurgency operations on all fronts as the United States of America is doing in counter terrorism operations in the Middle East where Academi and other private forces were engaged in the military commando operations to tackle the Al Qaeda, Taliban and other Islamic terrorist forces.

The confirmation of the Al Qaeda link means that the mission of the Boko Haram is well organized and programmed to last for as long they are opposed by the government and others. Therefore, we cannot predict when the war against Boko Haram insurgents will end. The government should reorganize the Nigeria Armed Forces and have all the national law enforcement and security agencies reprogrammed on counter intelligence, counter revolution, counter terrorism and counter insurgency operations.
Nigeria needs these extra measures in modern anti-terrorism warfare and the engagement of commandos and mercenaries will tackle these insurgents squarely, because only commandos and mercenaries can go the extra mile in the battle of wits and the battle of wills against the suicidal mission of the Boko Haram.


A commando in action.

Only this way can help in the overall control and prevention of further terrorist onslaughts of the Boko Haram and other terrorist elements of the lunatic fringe on rampage in Nigeria and across the borders.
