nig forceIn his bid to sweep off insurgency in Nigeria, President Muhammadu gave words of reassurance to the military formations waging war against terror that his administration would make available the necessary logistics needed to successfully prosecute the on-going war against the Boko Haram Terrorists.
Speaking on behalf of the President, National Security Adviser, Major General Babagana Monguno (rtd), conveyed the message during his visit to operational areas in the north eastern part of the country alongside service chiefs and Inspector-General of Police.
Monguno, in a chat with the officers including Nigerian Air Force men in Yola, said: “I am telling you this, and you can take it as if it is coming from Mr. President himself that you are going to be given everything you require, not only for the operations but for your personal welfare. This is an assurance I want to give you.”
A statement signed by Air Commodore and Director of Air Force Public Relations, Dele Alonge reads “Against the background of the recent presidential directive to the service chiefs to defeat the Boko Haram Terrorist group in three-months, the NSA gave the purpose of the operational visit as one to enable his team assess the situation on ground and relate with the troops with a view to adequately identify and address observed challenges facing the troops.”
Monguno, in furtherance, noted that the Nigerian Army Force, NAF has brought a lot of noticeable improvements in the war against the terrorists due to the aerial support, which has enhanced the sending and receiving of signal, provided to the ground troops.
He commended NAF personnel for their commitment and patriotism while urging them to keep the spirit high and to remain steadfast in their resolve to stand-up against the Boko Haram terrorists.
Record, so far, has it that the terrorists attacked Cameroonian soldiers patrol on November 12, 2014 in Amchide, northern Cameroon, 1 km from Nigeria, killing eight Cameroonian soldiers and leading the population to flee on October 15, 2014, before another six coordinated attacks that killed at least three civilians in the remote north of the country, on November 9, 2014. Boko Haram’s five-year insurgency in neighboring Nigeria has left thousands dead, and the Islamist insurgents have occasionally carried out attacks over the border.
