The Nigerian military is now set to conduct a “once and for all comprehensive operation” to eliminate Boko Haram terrorists in the troubled parts of the North East region.
Even as Chad, Cameroun, Niger and Nigeria could be attacking Boko Haram at the same time in a renewed effort to flush out the insurgents.
A statement issued by PRNigeria in Abuja Friday disclosed that political authorities, who now feel so disturbed by the activities of the terrorists especially after viewing the latest video released from the terror group (which claimed that it already has enough weapons to take on Nigeria and its neighbours), have endorsed the military plan and expressed full support for it.
It was gathered that many of the newly acquired weaponry included tanks, long range and more sophisticated rifles, night vision equipment both for artillery and tanks usage as well as aircraft. All will be employed in the attack on Boko Haram.
It was gather that about two battalions from the Chadian armed forces will launch their own attack from the Chadian side, it was gathered. And as the terrorists flee from the Nigerian onslaught, they are expected to meet their Waterloo in the hands of the Chadians.
Meanwhile, the Cameroon and Niger armed forces that have been put on the alert, will strike down the terrorists who may want to escape through Gamboru Ngala and such border towns.
The deployment for the mission is expected to facilitate the elimination of safe havens and escape routes of terrorists in or out of Nigeria, a source confided.
Innocent citizens living in the areas where the terrorists presently operate are expected to temporarily vacate the area before the operation commences.
It however disclosed that Olukolade declined to give details when contacted for confirmation of the story.
According PRNigeria: “In a terse response, he simply declared that the military would not relent in its efforts to restore peace to every part of the country as quickly as possible but that details of such efforts would not be disclosed now.
“He however admitted that all the countries bordering Nigeria are willing to compliment the efforts in Nigeria as terrorism has remained a menace or threat to all in the region.”
