FEMI-FANI-KAYODEEx-Spokesman of the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organization, Chief Olufemi Fani-Kayode, has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari, the Minister of Defence, Brig.-Gen. Mansur Mohammed Dan Ali (retd.) and the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen Tukur Yusuf Buratai, for denying the killing of 105 soldiers last week by Boko Haram insurgents.

The media was awash with reports that the soldiers attached to the 157 Battalion died in an encounter with the insurgents in Gudunbali, Borno State.

The reports were greeted with controversy as the Nigerian Army denied losing any soldiers in the attack, insisting that though the soldiers went incommunicado during the attack, they have since rejoined their units.

This line of argument was rejected by Mr. Fani-Kayode, who alleged a ‘cover-up’ by the government.

“The most reprehensible thing that our government can do is to cover-up the fact that 105 of our soldiers were killed by Boko Haram in battle. It is evil”, he said on Wednesday.

It would be recalled that THISDAY reported that the Nigerian Army, Tuesday, quietly buried several dead soldiers at the military cemetery in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

In reaction the alleged ‘secret burial’ of the soldiers, Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation during the Olusegun Obasanjo administration, said “A soldier ought to be honored in death and this is especially so if he dies in the course of doing his duty and fighting for his nation”.

“The government has not only dishonored them by not acknowledging their sacrifice but they have also buried them in the wilderness like rabid dogs”.

Mr. Fani-Kayode expressed these views in a series of tweets:
