”Dear General Buhari, Is this true?” Reno Omokri Attacks President Buhari Over Alleged Soldiers Secretly Buried

More reactions are trailing the report that alleges that several hundreds of Nigerian soldiers were secretly buried, causalities of a recent  offensive by insurgents.

Another major voice who has sharply critized the President and is demanding for answers is former presidential aide, Reno Omokri who starkly says President must answer for these alleged deaths.

In his tweet, Thursday 1st August, the controversial personality tweeted asking President Buhari to speak up and answer the question whether the reported deaths were true or not:

Dear General @MBuhari,

The Wall Street Journal says you secretly buried over 1000 Nigerian troops to hide the fact you are NOT WINNING the terror war as you claim. Is this true?

According to the WSJ report, “But the sprawling secret graveyard in Maiduguri and an official cemetery at the base, the operational command for the northeastern front in Borno State, now hold the bodies of at least 1,000 soldiers killed since the terror groups began an offensive last summer, according to soldiers and military officials—some of whom estimated a far higher death toll.”

Reacting, Alhaji Aiku Abubakar says every effort must be made to get to the botom of the matter. The presidential aspirant writing via his facebook account said:

”I cannot fathom that in the space of a year, scores of these great patriots were killed and buried secretly without their families being told. I hesitate to believe that deceit on such a grand scale is even possible.

”To ensure that we get to the bottom of this matter, I urge that a Judicial Commission of Inquiry headed by a non-partisan and reputable jurist, be inaugurated to investigate the findings of the Wall Street Journal. While this is occurring, I also strongly urge that a panel of inquiry comprising distinguished former military officers be set up to investigate and report to Nigerians the true state of the war on terror and what must be done to ensure Nigeria brings a speedy end to the ongoing insurgency.
