Boko Haram leader Shekau lived in my house – Monguno


As a native of Borno State, how do you describe the place that has been under siege by Boko Haram for many years now?
Borno State and Maiduguri, the state capital, in particular, because of the prevailing peace before the advent of Boko Haram insurgency, had been christened ‘the Home of Peace’.
But the coming of Boko Haram changed all that; with suicide attacks, attacks on villages, killing and maiming of people, and residents relocating to IDP camps and some to neighbouring countries to become refugees with the attendant and concomitant effects of losing their source of livelihood becoming the order of the day.
As a result of the insurgency, the economy of the state is comatose because you cannot engage in meaningful economic activities amid insecurity.
The infrastructure of the state, schools, hospitals, police stations and the rest have been destroyed; so the effect on the economy and on the psychology of the people of the state is tremendous and it is not something one can describe because a lot of women have been widowed and a lot of children have been orphaned.
So, we are witnessing a very difficult period in our history as a state and we continue to pray to God for intervention so that the situation will be ameliorated.
But with the advent of this administration in 2015, there has been tremendous improvement in the efforts to rid the state of insurgency.
Before 2015, about two thirds of the local governments in Borno were under the firm grip of Boko Haram; even my house in Borno was one of their operational headquarters, effectively occupied by one of the leaders.
You mean Shekau?
Yes, Shekau! When he was in Borno, he stayed in my house.
You hosted him?
I never saw or met him personally. I don’t know the kind of person he is. But he and his fellow terrorists occupied my house when they took over Monguno before they were flushed out by the military after Monguno was liberated.

  2. A place formally known as “Home of peace” now a den of terrorist group called Boko Haram just because of selfish attitudes of some politicians who want to remain in power forever without opposition.

  4. A lot of people have lots their life..when boko haram attack borno state. This terrorist claim to be a Muslim group which is not so because Allah (SBW) say’s who so ever kills is fellow man kind is not a Muslim and will never be forgiven… So this terrorist have killed a lot of people. Which means they have go against the word of God…

  11. It was denied that some of these politicians harbour terrorists. The truth must surface one day somehow. This is why it has become very difficult to fight the terrorist groups. Politicians are aiding and benefiting at the expense of the Citizens. GOD will surely annihilate them.

  21. God will deliver Nigeria. When he noticed is the head of the terrorist group, why can’t he hand him over to Police or Military

  22. Just imagine, a law maker accepted a terrorist in his house and he couldn’t initiate his arrest yet kept mute for a long life . These people are playing games with our soldiers life

  23. Government can never conquer them as long as it is people from the government that is providing arms for the boko Haram

  24. How can one terrorist group be too much for a whole Nation to deal with. We can’t learn from other countries. If it’s how to adopt their evil ways we’ll know how to do that

  25. The man have a complete knowledge of all this. He should be arrested in other to get the leader.

  26. he is proudly saying it because he knows that nigerian government can do in nothing this is to show how weak are corrupt and the nigeria is all about

  27. I dey smell rat poison here, but if you haven’t seen him, how are you sure he’s the one that occupied your house?

  30. I pity the people of Borno. When will that state be free from Boko Haram attacks. God please protect us from them

  31. I believe these terrorists will soon been forgotten in Nigeria, God will dry up their sources from the root in Jesus name Amen

  32. I heard that the rich men in the north are actually the ones sponsoring Boko Haram because of the promise of 7 virgins,,,,,I won’t be surprise if he intentionally offered His house to then

  33. Borno and other neighbouring states in this country needs adequate intervention, the federal government should ensure they are always looking into the security of citizens in those areas

  34. How long are we going g to suffer for the sin we don’t commit? How long would innocent wives and husbands get killed? How long would innocent girls be kidnapped and molested? And we claim we have government… Only God can save us from this mysterious attack.

  35. this is boko haram group should be handled with most optimal power because the way they are terrorizing the country is so bad

  36. I guess you were enjoying yourself in Abuja by then. All these politicians self.

  37. The real one av died for very long time by now, and if so, what are u guys waiting for? Get him arrested

  38. These politicians are the cause of the insurgency, They groomed these terrorist and could not later control them.

  39. birds of the same feather flock together with your statement you are working with them o that is y he is in your house

  40. The insurgency in Nigeria is going out of hand, if not completely out of hand. The federal government should as a matter of urgency,tackle this issue for it be a thing of the past.

  41. This BH issues can be settled only Wen the people involved is ready,, our government don’t care,,, they are not yet serious,, our head of security agents have use it as a source of income,,as source of making millions,, and I pray this killing should try reach their household

  42. Our government should behave like people that are learned and with power, not only having power to declare public holiday or to travel abroad, let them exercise their power on the boko haram too

  43. This comment would have cost you something if it’s abroad , because you’ll have to prove that you don’t have that connection with him up till now. Just saying, mind the kind of comments you present.

  44. Until we defeat the war against terrorism, there can never be peace in this country especially in the northern Nigeria. the government must act fast and now. No more propaganda.

  45. That man that is talking does it now mean that shekau lived in his house or they took over his house

  46. Let mongono go and rest all this are not important if he has a skeleton in his cupboard he should come abd say it

  47. Something just has to be done, I think this is not a question of who or which party is in power anymore, the affected states really need God intervention.

  48. The boko haram news is a sad news to me in regards to souls lost. Why can’t the military go and wipe this guys in their hiding place?

  49. This boko haram issue should not be taken with lefty hand, the government should find all means to eradicate them

  50. Its a lie if they interrogate him well he will surely confess, how can you said you dont know him and you know his name

  51. All credit are been attributed to the government in power yet we couldn’t see a visible results.. Congratulations as you have your house back

  52. If politicians don’t have hands in these boko boys, they would have been long surrendered to the Nigeria Army.

  53. The heading of the statement was a bit contradictory… He was not there when they were on his house… Boko haram took over a lot of things during there attacks

  54. All this our hausa leader knows something about boko Haram, they should do something o, people are dieing

  55. These insurgency of a thing ought to have been forgotten in Nigeria if our government had taken the issue seriously and not playing politics

  56. May God shows this country Mercy, how can someone like you say you don’t know he is the one, that means you can’t even Identify him abi, that’s just a lame excuse

  57. The truth is that this war is not and easy war beacuse there is no battle field. God alone can fight them. As a people let’s go to him in prayer

  58. We are the ones doing our self in this country. No matter what or update of book haram in this country it is still only God that can give us victory in this country over this deadly group

  59. So why are now telling us, why not when we were searching for him… Arrest this man for aiding and harboring a threat to national security

  60. OK uhm.. What’s wrong with this man? With all due respect…
    Why didnt he just find a way to burn down that house when there were there?
    They are busy killing more people

  61. Its saddening that the ruling party have decided not to do anything about boko haram, nor do they HV any blue print on what to do and they tell us is lies. We r tired of the lies

  62. I pray that this country just get rid of these boko haram situation things are getting out of hand hmmm he lived once in your house and now

  63. Our leaders need to do something about this, bokoharam has become a torn in the flesh of so many Nigerians

  64. So with the statement of Hon. Mohammed Monguno, that the advent of this administration in 2015, there has been tremendous improvement in the efforts to rid the state of insurgency, then one can conclude that Buhari was right to say that Boko Haram has been defeated.

  65. that very good…. they should go confine the house and arrest them both……
    I hope the government will react to this….

  66. God will keep protecting people who are staying in that part of this country. It pains when we see insurgency taking over a whole geo-political zone.

  67. If insurgence last for an hour, Government has hand in it….. Government are the one financing these terrorists…….i only pity the lives of soldiers wasted…..

  68. Is dis a joke or something. The government shld tackle dis issue of boko Haram insurgency biko it is getting out of hand

  69. Then it is apparent that the govt is aware and knows those behind book haram….God will expose them all someday

  70. This one na case ooo , how can a terrorist live in your house and you don’t know the kind of person he is

  71. I know God will help us on Nigeria and flush out all these bad people killing innocent soul like a chicken.
