Boko Haram: We are ready to work with UN - Army

Listen to the Army don't give your children to Boko Haram Chief Gloria Laraba Shoda

He said that the army conducted condone operation in the Pompori area of Maiduguri in search of high profiled Boko Haram insurgents.

It added that this resolution was as a result of series of meetings held with the military authorities and Borno state government after the unfortunate incident, saying that the military has shown regrets over the incident and promised never to allow a repeat of such.

According to him, the humanitarian coordinator is, however, working closely with the Government of Nigeria to resolve this issue.

Nigerian forces conducted an unauthorized dawn raid on the UN's main base in the country's conflict-torn northeast on Friday (Saturday in Manila), the United Nations said, further inflaming tensions between the government and aid groups.

"I am very pleased to report that our relationship of collaboration and trust is intact, and at this stage, we are focussed on the work ahead to ensure that the millions of vulnerable people in the Northeast are supported with lifesaving humanitarian aid".

"I call upon the Government of Nigeria to provide clarification".

"The humanitarian crisis in Nigeria's North-East is one of the most severe in the world today". The clearance operations effort has been yielding several successes.

Rumours have been swirling in Maiduguri that the leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, has been hiding out in a compound with the same name.

"Overall, I think the match was much longer than just the hours on the court". I once I kind of got on a roll, I started serving better.

The Army stated, "It has forced the Boko Haram terrorists to change tactics and resort to the employment of suicide bombers to target military locations and the populace".

He stressed that the condone and search operation was not specifically targeted at the United Nations facility, but rather done in the general area of operation. About 30 houses were searched during the exercise and no arrests were made.

"One of such included a property which was said to be occupied by United Nations Staff, although the property did not carry a UN designation".

The Nigerian military, which claimed there was no sign it was a United Nations camp, issued a statement Friday calling its "operation" a success but added that no suspect was found.

Kallon expressed grave concern over the unauthorised search of the United Nations base for humanitarian workers in Maiduguri.

"At about 2 a.m. early this morning, Nigerian Army troops in trucks are conducting..."

More than $650 million has been given by the global community to the response this year, though agencies say more is needed to keep the crisis from worsening. If they suspected that someone is hiding in the building, they could search it and I don't think the United Nations should object since they are working towards the same goal of fighting insurgency.
