Chief of Defence Staff, CDS, Air Marshal Alex Badeh, has reportedly incurred the wrath of the Presidency over his claim that the military has sighted the 270 schoolgirls seized from their dormitories in Chibok, Borno State by Boko Haram terrorists last month.

President Jonathan, it was learnt last night, was unhappy with the claim by the defence chief, which he considered as a breach of military tactics capable of hindering the move to free the children, who have been in the kidnappers’ den since last month.

Meanwhile, Air Marshal Badeh declared, yesterday, that the military was now fighting a bigger battle with the international terrorist organisation known as Al Qaeda with networks in North and West Africa, noting that the ongoing counter terrorism and counter insurgency war has gone beyond Boko Haram

A top Presidency source told Vanguard last night that Jonathan considered the CDS’ claim on the missing schoolgirls as an unnecessary outburst, which could frustrate ongoing efforts by the multinational team currently in the country to rescue the girls.

The source, which did not want to be quoted, said President Jonathan was still at a loss as to why Badeh made the statement at a time he was expected to be more cautious over the contentious issue, which is generating interest across the globe.

“Indeed the President is really upset over the claim and we do not know what will happen,” the source said but did not give further details.

  1. Mr. President Sir, could this Badeh man be involved with the insugents and his outburst a signal for them to relocate? We are praying still. God Bless Nigeria

  2. If this is true then I think the president knows what to Do as C-I-C. That must have been an open signal to the enemies.

  3. And now the billion dollar question is “Mr. President, what are you going to do about it?”

    People appointed into office cannot do and undo and the president is just watching them, there should be consequences. I remember when Obama sacked a brilliant, beloved defence chief simply because he said Obama was clueless or something. That is how to be C-I-C

  4. FG SHOULD. AWARDS NOW THAT INSURGENTS ARE. PEOPLES AROUND THEM.INFACT FG HAVE TO CALLED THE ANNONCER OF CHIBOK GIRLS DISCOVERED INTO BOOK. BUT THOSE PEOPLES SHOULD KNOW THAT THE BLOOD OF INNOCENT WILL NEVER ALLOWED THEM TO GO FREE.
