Victor Ezugwu, the GOC, 7 Division of Nigerian Army, Maiduguri, has said the Nigerian military is winning the war against terrorism in spite of some challenges. Ezugwu stated this while speaking with journalists in Maiduguri.
“We are winning the war. We are bringing the war to conclusion, very soon,” Mr. Ezugwu, a Brigadier General, said.
He also pleaded that Nigerians must support the military to sustain the successes so far recorded.
“We want everybody to help us to support the peace that is emerging. The peace is more enduring and more gratifying for us in Borno and other parts of the North-East of Nigeria,” Mr. Ezugwu said.
Meanwhile, Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno also commended the military for their sacrifice in restoring peace in the North-East. Mr. Shettima stated this during a chat with journalists in Maiduguri.
“The military has recorded tremendous achievements in the past six months, we are now consolidating the emerging peace in the state. It is wrong for anyone to say that the Boko Haram are in control. Yes you might have pockets of them trying to foment mischief, but eventually, we shall overcome the hiccups.
“We are all living witnesses to what is happening in Borno, you and I know that in the last couple of months Ngala was liberated by the military, so also was Bama, Gwoza, Dikwa, Mafa and so many other communities that were hitherto under the terrorists’ control. The military deserve commendation not condemnation,” the governor said.
