Boko Haram Days Are Numbered - DHQ
Defence Headquarters, DHQ, yesterday, declared that the end was now imminent for Boko Haram insurgency in the country.
Director of Defence Information, DDI, Colonel Rabe Abubakar, conveyed the declaration while speaking with newsmen in Abuja. Colonel Abubakar said the renewed commitment of military leadership and the determination of the troops in the mission areas were all pointers to the end of the insurgency.
He eulogised the heartwarming successes of the brilliant coordination between the air element of the Nigerian Air Force and the ground troops of the Nigerian Army that had uprooted the Boko Haram insurgency from their strongholds, including their several camps in Sambisa forest.
Colonel Abubakar described as unpatriotic acts by any citizen, no matter under whatsoever guise, to carry arms against his/her own people and the country.
He called on the unrepentant members of the terrorist group to have a rethink, lay down their arms and abandon their strange and uncivilised ideology for the betterment of mankind.
The Defence spokesman commended the troops for their ever-ready posture to tackle head-on all forms of criminality by the terrorists. He attributed the feat recorded so far to motivation and injection of right arsenal in the prosecution of the battle against insurgency.
