Insurgency: CDS visits troops, says military will restore peace

The Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Christopher Musa, on Tuesday, reiterated the resolve of the military to root out insurgency from the North-East and restore peace across the country.

The CDS, who was on a working visit to troops of  Operation Hadin Kai Theater Command, battling insurgency in the North-East, spoke to newsmen in Maiduguri, Borno State.

He implored Nigerians to enlist in the multi-pronged approach to combating insecurity across the country by sharing intelligence with the security agencies.

“We want Nigerians to join in the fight against insecurity by sharing information and intelligence with the security agents. Fighting insecurity is not the responsibility of the military alone. See something, say something; do that, together we succeed in the war against insecurity,” Musa said.

He said President Bola Tinubu had charged the military “to ensure there is peace in the North-East and the entire country.”

“We will not relent in the fight; it is not yet over until we restore peace in the entire country.”

He also assured Nigerians that the military would rescue all kidnap victims languishing in the dens of their abductors across the country.
