Borno State Gov. Kashim Shettima has revealed that the Northern Governors, convinced Obama’s government not to sell weapons to the Jonathan’s administration.
Jonathan had contacted a licensed arms dealer who traveled to South Africa to buy weapons for the military to ensure that Nigeria defeats Boko Haram.
The arms deal secret was however leaked by Boko Haram members in the Presidency to their Northern leaders and Governors.
President Jacob Zuma Was contacted by the Northern governors which lead to the, $9.34million arms money being seized and tagged “Money laundry”.
They got the information that Jonathan has contacted another South African arms dealer, and reported to Zuma and he seized the $5.7m to frustrate his anti-terrorism fight.
Northern leaders in order to frustrate Jonathan also threatened to drag the former Chief of Army staff, General Azubuike Ihejirika before the ICC for brutally dealing with their ‘Boko Haram’.
Now the US has lifted the sanction and the $1b given to Buhari developed wings as the soldiers are complaining of lack of arms to fight Boko Haram and those criticising Jonathan then had gone silent.
