Residents Harbour Boko Haram - Army
The Nigerian Army has pointed fingers at some residents of Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, as harbouring the members of Boko Haram. They know the sect's hideouts from where it launches attacks on the people, the army said, adding that soldiers and other security agents in the state did not molest civilians in a bid to overcome the Boko Haram insurgency.
The commandant of the Nigerian Army troops in Maiduguri (Operation Restore Order), Major Gen. Jack Ukechukwu Nwabo, told the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), Hausa service: "We are doing our job here and not molesting anyone. No matter how you do it, people must complain.
