Boko Haram attack: DHQ fingers informants, blames weather for killings

The Defence Headquarters, Abuja, on Monday, blamed the weather and informants as responsible for the recent Boko Haram killings, including the attacks on an oil exploration team, comprising the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation workers and University of Maiduguri lecturers.

The Director of Defence Information, Major Gen. John Enenche, who said this while speaking on the Boko Haram ambush on Channels Television, alleged that there was a collaboration with the terrorists as the insurgents didn’t attack other convoys apart from the oil exploration team.

No fewer than 60 people, including five lecturers of UNIMAID, about 15 soldiers, 11 members of the Civilian Joint Task Force and some staff of the NNPC, were killed on Thursday on their way to a search for crude oil in Barno Yasu in the Magumeri Local Government Area of Borno State.
