CHEERING news came from the North East yes­terday, as the military declared that it has so weakened Boko Haram insurgents that they do not have the capacity again to hold any Nigerian terri­tory.
Also, the military re­vealed that troops have.......
destroyed all known ter­rorists’ camps and cells in the North East.
Revealing this, in his maiden media interaction in Abuja, the Director of Defence Information, Col­onel Rabe Abubakar, stat­ed that following the sus­tained air raids and ground action against Boko Ha­ram, terrorists have been incapacitated and would soon be totally flushed out.
According to him, “these terrorists have been subdued, even if they are adopting other means and as they are restratagising, we are also doing same
“We have been coor­dinating on the air and ground assault to make sure that these terrorists’ hideouts are completely decimated. As I speak, all the terrorists’ camps have completely been wiped out. So right now, they are completely in disar­ray, having no command and control of where to plan. We have even taken over their camps and most of them have even aban­doned their bases and blended within towns and communities. We have also apprehended some of them.”
The soldier said the mil­itary was making progress, boasting: “People should know that Boko Haram is no longer strong enough to hold ground. Very soon this issue of whether they are in control of any ter­ritory in Nigeria or not will come to the open. We must begin to think of the nation.
“I am assuring you that they will never again re­capture the territory taken from them, because what is happening right now with the deployment of troops, equipment and morale will ensure that.”
Abubakar said that a lot of progress has been made as a result of new strate­gies adopted by the new service chiefs, including constant morale boosting visit to the troops on the front line. These visits, he said, coupled with the de­ployment of sophisticated weapons, have not only boosted the morale of the troops, but also practically introduced a new dimen­sion on combating terror­ism and insurgency in the North East.
He noted that emphasis are now placed on cred­ible training and retraining on the sanctity of human rights observance and pro­tection of the combatants in the battle fields, promis­ing “an improved enforce­ment of rule and relations of the international stan­dard.”
Abubakar revealed that mop up operations and mines clearance had been intensified in the liberated areas, just as necessary measures are being put in place to ensure that safety and security prevail in those places.
