BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Nigerian Armed Forces has urged Nigerians to disregard the latest video threatening renewed showdown by the Boko Harm terrorists and described the release as a desperate attempt by the dying militant group to remain relevant.
The Military which stated it could have chosen to ignore the release, however said it became necessary to make some comments so as to douse the apprehension of the Nigerian citizens, concerning the outburst in the video clip.
”It is important to state here that the video clip is diversionary and a desperate attempt by the dying Boko Haram sect to remain relevant. The video clip is a complete show of weakness and sign that the end is near for the insurgents; hence it does not in any way poses threat to us.
”The military is equally not deterred by the photoshop assemblage of worshippers at the supposed Eid-El Kabir prayer which is a replica of the video clip released by the sect in 2014. This has cast aspersion to the credibility of the clip and therefore should be disregarded.
”The Nigerian military is highly committed to making lives unbearable to the enemies of this nation wherever they are and would do all that is required within its rules of engagement to ensure that no part of Nigerian territory is conducive and habitable for insurgents and any other criminals to stay and operate” the Defence Headquarters declared in a statement issued Thursday by its Spokesperson Brig Gen Abubakar Rabe.
The military, he added believed so much in making statement through its action as evident in its past achievements rather than making noise in propaganda gimmick as exhibited by the Boko Haram elements in its recent video clip.
”All threat to leadership of our nation, military and citizens, should be discountenanced in its entirety as military is capable of further decimating the insurgents and providing security for all. While our operation will continue as planned with many terrorists already surrendering and many captives rescued, we advise all the remaining surviving Boko Haram terrorists to surrender now for their own good”.
The military reiterated its commitment, determination and resilience in stamping out Boko Haram and other related criminals across the country, urging Nigerians not to bother about the antics of the degraded terrorists.
Defence also specified that the insurgents would meet their waterloo soon.
