The Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, Major General Olusegun Adeniyi, has charged the troops on the frontline to end the Boko Haram insurgency and return to their families, saying he is earnestly counting on troops to take the battle to the insurgents, including traitors.
General Adeniyi disclosed while addressing the troops in Gubio and Magumeri towns in Borno state respectfully.
It would be recalled that insurgents group attacks Gubio and Magumeri local government areas and razed down some public buildings and politicians’ houses.
“Let me say this, hold your ground; if they change you, adhere to it because we are no longer in trenches, we are in vehicles but we will still be rotating ourselves. So, it is an insult for you to be here and someone says there are no soldiers.
“What we have discussed, implement it; if you have any issues let your commander know and look out for traitor; set up a checkpoint and be checking so if we don’t stop Boko Haram logistics, this war will never finish. “Please, let us finish this war and go home; if you have been unserious, get serious; if you are serious, get more serious. You are in war today, you will be at peace in another unit tomorrow.
Above all, we must make up our minds that we are ending this war now,” he urged. General Adeniyi appealed to the soldiers to accord respect to all their partners including the police and the civilian Joint Task Force to enable them to get desired results in the counter-insurgency operation because they all have one enemy.
