OPINION: #EndSARS Protests Should Not Make Us Forget About Boko Haram

Instagram-Update 10/23/2020

View pictures in App save up to 80% data. For the past three weeks in Nigeria, the most dominant topic in public discourse has been about #EndSARS and police brutality. The defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) was notorious for highhandedness and gross abuse of human rights. They indiscriminately brutalised Nigerians and frisked them based on the “Yahoo Boy” profiling.


On social media and online platforms, it’s been all about #EndSARS. Even celebrities like Kanye West, Rihanna, Meek Mill have thrown their support for the people of Nigeria to end police brutality and SARS. Former American First Lady and Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton and former Vice President Joe Biden have both supported Nigeria in this struggle


Amidst all the attention this has generated, other things have happened in Nigeria which have been dwarfed by the #EndSARS movement. For example, it has been reported by TheCable that at least seven soldiers were killed by Boko Haram insurgents in Doska, Borno state. According to a source, the soldiers were tricked by terrorists who disguised in military fatigues.


He said, “The troops were on a fighting patrol, and when they got to Doska, they saw these people in military uniforms and military machines, and they even waved so our troops thought they were soldiers from another formation.

“The troops stopped, exchanged greetings with these people. And as they proceeded, they ran into an ambush. Immediately, the insurgents closed in on them, opening fire. We lost seven soldiers, and 14 were critically injured.” 


This is obviously a sad piece of news. For more than 10 years, Boko Haram have attacked harmless civilians. They have attacked security agencies. In fact, numerous times, they have attacked military bases. Now, they are attacking governors! What audacity. It should be noted that about two months ago, governor Zulum was also attacked by suspected Boko Haram members. A few weeks ago, they attacked his convoy twice in 72 hours.

We have terrorism on our hands and we must more than ever before at this time do something about it. We can no longer keep losing lives of soldiers and civilians to these devils. Though we are fighting against police brutality, it is also important we remember that Boko Haram is still very much a treat to us in Nigeria.
