BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Nigerian Armed Forces have vowed to continue the ongoing joint assaults on Boko Haram in the Northeast until the operation of the guerrillas are totally impaired and collapsed.
Defence Headquarters (DHQ) reiterated Monday that in line with this, the coordinated operation of the security forces in the contested area was designed to dismantle the technical pre-eminence and capabilities of the terrorist group, thus would intensify because the masquerading guerrillas should not be given any breathing space to regroup and re-strategize their campaign.
“For optimum success in the counteroffensives, the recent deployment of the 7th Brigade of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) in the Lake Chad Basin would ensure a total blockade of possible escape routes in the area to forestall further infiltration of the terrorist elements into the country and its neighbours” DHQ said in a post.
It warned the terrorists to stop the violent act and embrace peace in order that they might become useful citizens contributing positively to the socioeconomic development of not just the northeast but the country as a whole.
