The Defence Headquarters has condemned in its entirety the spate of suicide attacks in the North East where scores of innocent lives are lost on regular basis. The latest being the suicide bombing at Sabon Gari market in Borno State.
Acting Director of Defence Information, Col. Rabe Abubakar, described those perpetrating the heinous crimes as callous, barbaric and monsters whose activities will soon become a thing of the past.
The military is intensifying efforts to continue to break the bones of the terrorists and wish to re-state and re-assure Nigerians that it is not relenting in its efforts to rid the country of terrorism and any act of criminalities. Every step is being taken to neutralize the capability of terrorists whose activities still continue to constitute danger to civil populace as they are in disarray while running away from their former safe haven and no longer capable of confronting the troops.
Defence Headquarters is therefore appealing to the general public to be extra vigilant and be wary of strange faces and objects in their localities. Asymmetric warfare calls for collective effort of both the general public and the security agencies in information gathering and sharing. The public is advised to always give timely information to the security agencies in order to avert the re-occurrence of the ugly incidence.
