Is Boko Haram that magnanimous?- Reno Omokri raises questions on the recent release of 82 Chibok girls by Boko Haram

In a piece he shared on social media, Reno Omokri raised some questions on the recent release of 82 Chibok schoolgirls by Boko Haram members. Read his thought provoking piece below...
Anybody that is not happy that 82 Chibok girls were released must be a monster whose humanity should be called into question.
I thank God that these girls have been released and I commend the Federal Government for the feat of ensuring that these girls are reunited with their families. May God bless PresidentMuhammadu Buhari for providing the leadership that enabled this to happen. Having said that, there are some factual observations I want to raise. What you are about to read is completely devoid of any opinion. I am just stating facts.

You may not like the facts. You may not even like me. But one thing you cannot do is ignore the fact. May 5, 2017: 82 Chibok girls were released by Boko Haram to the Nigerian government after negotiations that involved a prisoner swap and according to some news reports also included substantial payments: But questions about this incidence remain. On May 3, 2017, internationaAFP News AgencyP News Agencygency, reported that on Friday April 29, 2017 fighter jets from the Nigerian Airforce had pounded Boko Haram positions in Balla village, which is 25 miles from Damboa, just outside Sambisa Forest. Citing intelligence reports, they reported that the bombing was so intense that several Boko Haram fighters were killed including the group's deputy leader, Abba Mustapha, alias Malam Abba and another leader, Abubakar Gashua, alias Abu Aisha, described as a key person in the group's hierarchy.

The Nigerian Air force emailed a statement to the AFP in support of these reports on the same day and said "Battle damage assessment conducted after the strike showed that several leaders of the Boko Haram terrorist organisation and their followers were killed during the attacks". Babakura Kolo, a member of the Civilian JTF (a militia registered with the Nigerian government to help in the fight with Boko Haram) testified that "a number of commanders were killed."

On May 4, 2017, Boko Haram's leader, Abubakar Shekau, released a video denouncing and taunting the Nigerian government over the attack and promising reprisals. Yet, after this incident on April 29, 2017 that led to the death of their top commanders and many of their foot soldiers, Boko Haram still went on to release 82 Chibok girls to the same Nigerian government that their leader had sworn revenge on exactly a week earlier?

Does this add up? Does this gel with reality? Does this even make sense? Is Boko Haram that magnanimous? On May 7, 2017, when the girls were ferried over to the Nigerian Presidential Villa at Aso Rock, Abuja to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari, photographs released showed them looking very well fed and robust.

In fact, the next day (May 8) Africa's top blog, Linda Ikeji's blog published a photo of the released girls side by side with a picture of a woman and her baby in one of the Internally Displaced Persons camp in Borno state for a side by side comparison and these Chibok girls, who had been living rough inside Sambisa forest looked well fed, well groomed and buxom while the woman in the IDP camp looked haggard and hungry. It leaves you questioning who has been in captivity and who has been free. How is this possible?

This is not the first time Chibok girls have been released. Almost exactly a year ago, just a week before the current Nigerian administration marked its first year in office some Chibok girls were also released. Another batch were released in October 2016.

The thing is that when these girls are released there is a media blackout on them. No one is allowed near them to interview them. I understand that they have gone through an ordeal, but Malala also went through a similar or even worse ordeal and no one shielded her from the press. Malala Yousafzai was shot at age 15 by the taliban and left unconscious.

She survived and she was threatened by the taliban who threatened to kill her should they catch her. Her case was one of clear and present danger. Yet she was not sequestered from the public even though, like the Chibok girls, her English was not so good at first. In fact, an international press tour was arranged for her placing her on the world stage and kickstarting the activism that earned her a Nobel Prize making her the youngest person ever to be so awarded.

One would have thought that that is what would have played out for the released girls. Last October, 21 Chibok girls were release by Boko Haram after negotiations. Till date, these girls have been kept from the press. Even their own parents are not allowed aThe New York Timesew York TimesTimes York Times piece on them published on March 11, 2017.

The girls are kept in S safe house according to the New York Times. During the Christmas holidays they were allowed to visit Chibok but were housed in the home of a "top politician". Their parents were only allowed to 'visit them'. Soldiers guarded the girls and after some hours asked the parents of the girls to leave.

On Christmas Day itself, they were denied entry to the politicians house to see their own children and on January 8, 2017 the girls were returned to their safe house and according to the New York Times "Neither the public nor their parents have been able to see them since." No one really knows what went on with these girls since their abduction. It is all smoke and mirrors. These girls are innocent.

They did not kidnap themselves. They were pawns in a game whose puppeteers we do not yet know. No one should raise any questions about these girls after what they have been through. But surely we can raise questions about events themselves. Think people. Am I the only one seeing this?

You are definitely the only one with such a disjointed view of events the electoral loss of 2015 and the obvious incompetence of your Principal has robbed you of any pretence of objectivity,
The IDP looks unfed largely because aids given to them are stolen by corrupt officials, while the Chibok girls were in an enclosure wherever they were as sex slaves and cooks to fighters. After 3yrs the girls would have adjusted to their fate and begun to live a seemingly 'normal' lives. Anxiety for them, at this point, is long gone. But for people like you whose incompetence has being made more glaring by their release, your bitterness at their freedom can be understandable
Thank God it's irreversible for you

This APC drama since on Sunday is so hilarious that I cannot stop wondering why they keep thinking Nigerians are as gullible as before.

So to distract Nigerians for the President's incompetency and medical trip abroad, they released these girls they held hostage just to seize power from GEJ believing Nigerians would be taken by their effectiveness."

APC, no we are not STUPID as before. You kidnapped these girls and have housed and fed them strictly for your selfish self-centered purpose, not knowing you are actually toying with your own unborn generation's future.

Try other better tricks next time.

So why are the girls not with their parents??? Is the Federal Government dodging something, probably information about their SUPPOSED ordeal in the hands of their Captives?

What has he said ? He hailed the president for the rescue but he had to bring out facts and these facts are true and true. It's not about wife or children. Why can't press men speak to these Chibok girls to know more fact. Obviously they were not in sambisa. Cos refugees in the idp camp taken care off by the FGN look worse than these ones. Our Army claimed they have bomberded sambisa so where are the girls from

Reno thanks for your comment; many Nigerians are lacking in critical social analysis, hence the ignorant comments levied on you. The recently released Chibok girls look well fed . it's not easy to feed one person especially in contemporary Nigeria, let alone 82. How is it that BH is able to feed these girls? Why is these release coming just at the same time Buhari was leaving for medical trip to London? Alot is amiss here;some political monsters are scoring cheap political points feeding BH and trying to divert public attention from ailing Buhari to we'll fed Chinook girls. Nigerians shine your eyes; this govt is a scam. Thumbs up, Reno

There is one thing that GEJ achieved in his 6 years. You will have to give him A+ in his capacity to wipe off his followers' brains. And to imagine that 2 years after these followers are yet to recover.... Oga you tried!

Reno, stop putting yourself to open ridicule on daily basis. Dont you have anyone around you to give you good counsel? Even your boss has commended the FG for the achievement and you are still out there in the cold moaning endlessly. Is its because PMB stopped your sharing spree?

Nigeria is one big theatre where the absurd hold center stage.Why would the girls not be allowed to speak to the press?If they were held captive by psychopaths,blood thirsty vampires and rapists like the notorious Boko Haram,how come only one of them is carrying a baby.Compare this to the rescued girls or displaced ones in IDP camps in the Northeast who are looking hagard and malnourished.Something does not add up.The truth shall be told one day soon.

IT IS ALWAYS A PROBLEM WHEN YOU CAN WRITE BUT YOU SEEM NOT TO BE ABLE TO READ. IF YOU HAVE READ YOU WOULD HAVE SEEN THAT THE NEGOTIATION WAS CARRIED OUT NOT BY BABACHIR OR KYARI BUT BY THE INTERNATIONAL RED CROSS AND THE SWISS GOVERNMENT.... SO WHERE DOES COMLICITY COME FROM? NIGERIAN ARMY IS NOT THE PARTY IN THE NEGOTIATION....THAT YOU CAN WRITE DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO SPEW OUT RUBBISH ALL THE TIME.

I said it from DAY One that these girls abduction was politically motivated and a complete SHAM. The truth can only be hidden for so long. Where did Boko Haram get the resources to keep these girls looking so good when they themselves were dying from hunger. Nigerians are too gullible. The whole truth will come to light someday. Thank you Reno.

Kadiri Abdulrahman said...

Comments I read at times shock me! As at the time these innocent girls were reported abducted ineffectual buffoon, Jonathan was firmly in charge as Nigeria's president. Very unfortunate indeed. These girls spent more than one year in captivity before Buhari even defeated heartless, clueless Jonathan to emerge as president, and during his inauguration, he undertook to do anything and everything possible to rescue them, and that's what is playing out now? How on earth can any Nigerian, especially a participant in Jonathan's bad government raise questions about rescue of these girls and not incur the wrath of God? I only pity this fraudster, Reno Omokri and his gullible followers when that wrath will descend on him. Continue.

Had same thoughts myself. Couldn't understand how this negotiation could be possible shortly after a serious altercation with BH. The girls also look very nourished considering they had been kidnapped for three years. I agree with Reno, it all doesn't add up at all

Jimmy said...

Reno, I see things from your point of view. I have asked, why media people are not allowed to inview at least between twenty to thirty of them? Which location were they kept and they all look unruffle.? I smell a rat my bbrother.

John Obasi said...

Guys, let's attack questions raised here and not to divert attention by raining insult at the writer and the previous administration.


By not allowing parents access to their children, Is it true that chibok girls are now government properties?

Is it also true students writing WAEC doesnt understand English?

Is it true children who lived in the forest are looking well nourished?

Just being curious!!!!

FRESH said...

That's the problem with thinking you are very clever and know everything! So this Buffoon called Reno Omokri never knew about the factions in bijou Haram? That the Mamman Nur faction has the girls & government has been negotiating with them? The vice president mentioned this last month.

Silly, jobless, fake pastor Reno looking for attention as usual. On the one hand he finally agrees that indeed some girls were kidnapped and have been rescued while on the other hand he is confused about how the current FG is bombing the same Boko haram and yet negotiating with the group. You see because of what you want to eat you refuse to reason clearly and are deliberately misreoresenting facts. You are stunned that what your incompetent and clueless master and lord - GEJ refused to do, diverted the budgeted funds for and still continues to deny, has been achieved by President Buhari. Shame on you and the GEJ wailers. Please extend your new found light to Fayose, FFK and all your other co-clowns who see conspiracy, tribe and politics in everything. Why not put your self in the shoes of the parents of these girls? Have you no human feeling or decency? With the superlative educational standard that your lord -GEJ and team put in place, how many of your secondary school graduates in Bayelsa and even the rest of the country can speak good English? Please get a job to keep you busy and face reality - your time in government was a waste and we will NEVER vote for your group again. See the mess your lord and master GEJ left behind - corruption of monumental proportions, economic recession etc. You guys need spiritual rebirth.

Good or bad thank God that 82 of them are finally reunited with their parents.

Adaigwe said...

Yes Reno. The second part of your write up is relevant. There was no need to thank Buhari because he has done nothing but be sick and scam Nigerians. You have seen the Red Cross has now denied that they took part in any negotiations to free the girls. The Swiss government will soon come with their own denial. The girls are not allowed access to their "parents " or press so they don't tell different stories and contradict government's propaganda. The "release of 82 Chibok girls" was to cover Buhari's indefinite stay abroad and his bad health. By the way do those women look like girls that were to sit WAEC a couple of years ago??? Let's be real

Yes provided, Reno is not saying d truth, but if all he said is right it will go back to u and ur generation, blunt head.
