Good News!! ‘Boko Haram Can Not Attack Anywhere In The North’- Army Confirms



The Nigeria Army on Friday, reacted to an interview in one of the National Dailies over the claim that seven local government areas in Borno State are still under the control of the Boko Haram militants.
A statement from Colonel Onyema Nwachukwu, Deputy Director, Public Relations, Theatre Command, Operation Lafiya Dole, while reacting to the claim said even thought the claim failed to furnish members of the public with the names of the local governments, it was obvious that the sweeping statement was not only an attempt to propagate falsehood but a futile effort to disinform members of the public on the true security situation in the north east.
The statement reads: “This is a perspective of one who is evidently detached from the realities of the counter terrorism cum counter insurgency operations in the north east.
“It is very crucial to set the record straight by making it crystal clear that contrary to his opinions, the Boko Haram Terrorists group does not hold or control any Local Government Area in Borno state or in the north east as claimed in the interview.
“These Local Government Areas have been liberated by troops of operation Lafiya Dole and the troops have continued to ensure security in these areas after routing out the insurgents.
“As a matter of fact, locals have been encouraged to return to their communities to resume their vocations and normal life.
“It may perhaps be needful to refresh memories by recalling that prior to the inauguration of Operations Lafiya Dole, the entire north east was infested with Boko Haram Terrorists, who became emboldened to the extent of declaring a caliphate with headquarters in Gwoza town.
“All that became history as the gallant troops of Operation Lafiya Dole came into the theatre, gradually but steadily decimating the insurgents and liberating held territories in a series of well-planned and coordinated joint ground and air operations.
“One of such major operations was the Operation RESCUE FINALE, which routed the insurgents out of its tactical headquarters in Camp Zeiro in Sambisa forest and out of its so called spiritual headquarters in Alargarno.
“Ever since, Operation Lafiya Dole has continued to relentlessly conduct several other operations such as Operation DEEP PUNCH, CHIKIN GUDU Operation and Operation RAWAN KADA alongside the Multinational Joint Task Force. These and many other operations have culminated in the degradation and incapacitation of the insurgent group.
