Babangida warns Buhari over Boko Haram

Former military president, General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (retd),
has told the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to also use
psychological and unconventional methods in fighting the Boko Haram
insurgency in the North East.

Babangida gave this advice during an exclusive interview with Ladi
Akeredolu-Ale on Channels Television.

IBB pointed out that it would be a mistake to use regular war tactics
against the insurgents.

"What we tend to forget is that the insurgents have also got
tacticians or people who think for them, and once they do that, then
you have a problem.

"You have to find a way of countering that information they dish out," he said.

Babangida added that government should embark on sensitisation
campaigns in a bid to "dish out a lot of not so good information about
the other people (terrorists) so that the populace will have
confidence that no matter what happens, the military is there to
protect them."
