The director of defence information, Brig. Gen. Rabe Abubakar, has debunk rumours making the rounds insisting that there no single area where flag of Boko Haram insurgents in being hosted in Nigeria.
Rabe, who stated this on Thursday in series of tweets through his Twitter handle @RabeAbubakarDDI, blamed some hired elements who he said, will not like to see the crisis in the North East come to an end.
While challenging those in doubt to come up with contrary position, pleaded for support and encouragement from Nigerians to boost the morale of troops.
He said, “We need to make some clarification on the issue of Boko Haram holding Territories in the North East. @DefenceInfoNG.
“Though the remnants of BHT may have freedom of movement in some isolated areas in the far NE, it doesn’t mean they hold territories.
“There is no single area or territory where BHT flag is being hoisted in Nigeria & we challenge anyone to come up with a contrary opinion.
“Those campaigning and spreading dangerous rumour are hired elements who will not like to see the crisis in the NE come to an end.
“They are the beneficiaries of the ongoing crisis, unhappy with the success and progress achieved by the Armed Forces of Nigeria.
“It is our strategic plan at all levels to get rid of any form of Terrorism, Militancy & other allied criminalities from our Nation.
“We need the support and encouragement from our respected citizens.”
