Nigerian Army Vows To Crush Boko Haram, IPOB

The Nigerian army said it raided a Boko Haram logistics base in Guibja on May 29, 2021.

The Nigerian Army has reiterated its commitment to crushing Boko Haram terrorists, members of the banned Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), and ending all forms of criminality in the country.

Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Major General Farouk Yahaya stated this on Saturday during the passing out parade of the 80 regular recruits intake at the Nigerian Army Depot, Zaria in Kaduna State.

Major General Farouk who was represented at the event by the General Officer Commanding One Mechanized Division of the Nigerian Army, Major General Danjuma  Ali-Keffi, explained that the military will not rest on its oars until the entire country is safe for all citizens to live in.

“Nigeria is facing numerous security challenges occasioned by the activities of Boko Haram terrorist group, armed bandits kidnappers, IPOB and other criminal elements. We would not rest on our oars until this country is safe for all of us,” he said.

While addressing the soldiers, the GOC reminded that the contemporary security challenges orchestrated by bandits and terrorists across the country demand that the Armed Forces maintain a well-trained and disciplined force, congratulating them for the completion of their initial training at the institution

He, however, reminded them that a lot is expected from them in terms of loyalty, discipline, and selfless service to their fatherland.

“You are expected to always do your utmost best in order to sustain these values through high professional standards in order to enhance your individual ability and our collective cohesion,” the GOC added.

The ceremony which was earlier scheduled to hold on May 22, was moved following the death of former (COAS) Lt.-Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, alongside 10 other senior military personnel in a plane crash in Kaduna State on May 20.
