As the fight against terrorism and other security challenges in the country keep biting very hard, the Nigerian army however, has recounted the gains it has made so far in their onslaught to flush out criminal elements and ensure the safety of Nigerians and the country at large.
Reacting to the success made so far by the Nigerian army, Air Marshall Sadiqque Abubakar said, “Our Special Forces are doing an excellent job… Look at those protecting our bases. Our base in Maiduguri was attacked in December 2013, but today nobody will try that because we have all the skills and what it takes to defend our bases.
“We have deployed [our Special Forces] in support of internal security operations; in Operation Whirl Stroke in Benue, we have over 300 Special Forces elements, and that has helped to keep Benue State quiet.”
“There was a time when coffins were just displayed everyday [in Benue], today, by the grace of God and the hardwork of this team, including our own Special Forces, the place is generally quiet. We have them in Agatu, which was a battle zone.”
“In Taraba State, we have another team, dealing with internal security and keeping close [watch] and working with the Army and other security agencies to ensure the Ambazonian guys that might want to infiltrate our country are repelled.”
“Also in Zamfara State, we have over 300 Special Forces working hand in hand with other security agencies. They are making sure they clear the bandits that are making trouble there.”
