Nigerian Army, United Nations at Loggerheads Over Invasion of Premises in Maiduguri

Nigerian Army, United Nations at Loggerheads Over Invasion of Premises in Maiduguri

Edward Kallon, the Humanitarian Coordinator for Nigeria has expressed grave concern following the search.

Nigeria's security forces have raided a United Nations camp in the north-eastern city of Maiduguri and carried out an unauthorised search, a United Nations official has told the BBC.

The U.N. says it has no information "regarding the reason or motivations for the unauthorized search".

"I am very pleased to report that our relationship of collaboration and trust is intact", Peter Lundberg, the United Nations deputy humanitarian coordinator for Nigeria, said at a briefing in the northeastern city of Maiduguri.

The incident, which took place on Friday, had raised concerns among members of the global community with the United Nations directing its humanitarian workers operating in the state to remain indoors.

However, the army defended its action claiming that the search conducted was part of its counter-insurgency operation in the north east. The operation was successfully conducted as over 30 houses were searched.

"A United Nations source told Agence France-Presse that the search of the camp in Maiduguri, known as the "Red Roof", was illegal under worldwide law and may have been triggered by inaccurate information that a key leader of the Boko Haram jihadists was at the base".

"It, therefore, became expedient to take preemptive action by combing the general area through a cordon and search operation".

"On the whole, the operation in the general area was successfully concluded but no arrest was made because the suspects were not found". The clearance operations effort has been yielding several successes.

In a new move to fish out Boko Haram terrorists from their hideout, military troops under Operation Lafiya Dole yesterday searched some properties in Maidugiri, Borno State and other areas for the terrorists who might have used the metropolis as a hideout.

We can't wait to see how this saga would play out.
