Service Chiefs’ strategies have degraded Boko Haram, insecurity in North East – BMO

Written by on February 25, 2020

The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) has commended the Nigeria Armed Forces for its security strategies and efforts in degrading Boko Haram and insecurity in Nigeria.

BMO in a statement by the Buhari Media Organisation Chairman, Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary Cassidy Madueke, in Abuja in the late hours of Monday, said the recent strategies of service chiefs have effectively degraded the operational capacity of the insurgents.

He stressed that peace and security have improved so far in the North-East and Nigeria at large.

“Bombardment of various operational bases, communication infrastructures, neutralising of top commanders of the insurgents have disoriented the insurgents’ camp.

“This has resulted in their members deploying arson and attacking soft targets like the last kicks of a dying horse, aimed at projecting fear into the people’s psyche.

“The officers and men have shown tremendous mastery in this war, sending a signal of strength that Nigeria’s territorial integrity remains intact by OWN troops who forestalled the planned subversion against her sovereignty without procuring the services of Private Military Contractors, otherwise known as foreign mercenaries.

“For those with an in-depth knowledge of the goings-on in the North-East, the Buhari Administration’s approach in conducting its counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency operations has deployed a mass attack approach against the insurgents.

“This has led to enclaves and hideouts being destroyed. Joining forces with our neighbours under the auspices of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) has led the Nigeria Air Force (NAF) taking its firepower to the enemies’ camp by embarking on cross border strikes.”

On the call for the Service Chiefs to be changed, BMO noted that “President Buhari as the Commander-in-Chief understands the impact rotating military chiefs strategically engaged in the frontline operations could have, and the potential dangers of taking the country and the region back to its pre-2015 moments.

The dynamics of asymmetric warfare underscore the need for leadership stability, to avoid tactical and operational mistakes that can be exploited by the insurgents to quickly recover from previous defeats and reorganise themselves, replace lost fighters and continue threatening destruction against Nigeria.”

The BMO is of the opinion that “today’s war on terror is intelligence-driven. With the full cooperation of the community, actionable intelligence is derived and leads to victory against the insurgents.”

The organization urged Nigerians to lend their support to the Armed Forces to rid the North-East of the remnants of insurgents.
