Buhari Orders Military To Eliminate Terrorists Completely
According to a statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, Buhari gave the directive on the occasion of World Humanitarian Day 2022 in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.
Buhari also urged the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development and its agencies to come up with specific programmes to address urgent threats posed by explosive remnants in the North East.
He said, “Men and officers of Operation Lafiya Dole, security agencies and the Multi-National Joint Task Force are very much appreciated for their commitment to the fight against insurgency.
“I commend their professionalism and tactical penetration to the hideout of the criminal elements, leading to appreciable improvement of the security situation in this North East Region, without which the resettlement of the IDP’s would not be possible.
“I, therefore, implore you not to relent in your efforts, continue to take the fight to their hideouts and ensure they are completely eliminated.”
