Major Hamza Al Mustapha, former Chief Security Officer to late military Head of State General Sani Abacha, has said that if he becomes the President of Nigeria, he relocate to Sambisa Forest in Borno state which is regarded as the epicentre of the Boko Haram.
This is even as he said he will end the Boko Haram insurgency that has bedevilled Nigeria, within six months.
Al-Mustapha, who is a presidential aspirant under the platform of Action Alliance, AA, made the statement in an interview with the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) monitored by Vanguard in Kaduna.
He lamented that the Nigerian soldiers were now “less active and not fully committed like before, they’ve already become like the police and the police that you have, are bad.”
He said he would overhaul the military within that period of six months, which is going to be a painful exercise but necessary in order to restore the glory of the Nigerian soldiers the way they were known before.
According to him, “I swear if it is not possible to defeat terrorists in six months, I will demote all these senior officers and send them home, they will be prosecuted and must return the money given to them because I will probe them.
“If I become the President I will live in Sambisa, I will stay there during weekends, and holidays and see if anything will touch me,” he said.
