The Nigerian Army has called for collaborative efforts from every stakeholder in the ongoing fight against terrorism, saying that no single agency can successfully end terrorism.
The Acting General Officer Commanding (GOC) 7 Division, Brigadier General Abdulmalik Biu, made the call when he played host to the Queen of Hunter, Aisha Bakari Gombi in his office.
In a statement by the director, Army public relations Brig Gen Texas Chukwu Biu, he maintained that Boko Haram terrorists are not spirits but are sons, daughters, brothers and sisters of some people in the area that were accommodated in the past.
“We must all participate to restore our dignity. Our people have been traumatised and generations yet unborn are likely to inherit more trauma if Boko Haram is not dealt with completely, we must work together to bequeath a nation that they can be proud of,” he said.
He assured Aisha of the Nigerian Army’s collaboration at all times, stressing that in the fight against insurgency, the non-kinetic aside military approach is very essential.
The Acting GOC further stated that, the Nigerian Army would give her all the support so that the non kinetic efforts are exploited in ending Boko Haram insurgency.
Responding, Aisha stated that she was in the Division to thank the Nigerian Army for their efforts towards ending insurgency in the North East.
She assured of her group’s readiness to collaborate with the Nigerian Army and pledged that the group would remain ever ready when called upon at any time.
Recall that Aisha Bakari Gombi is among thousands of hunters brought in by the Nigerian Army in the fight against Boko Haram and her exploits in catching Boko Haram fighters, as well as searching out and rescuing kidnapped children within the enclaves of Boko Haram terrorists, earned her the title, ‘Queen of Hunters’ in the order of the likes of historic Queen Amina.
In a related development, members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Borno State Chapter, during a courtesy visit, thanked the officers and soldiers of the Nigerian Army for ensuring peace in the area.
