Terrorism

 

Three Deductions That Can Be Made From Lai Mohammed's Claim That Terrorists Are Being Defeated

As the Boko Haram/ISWAP Terrorists continue with their notorious acts of insecurity in the Northern part of Nigeria, government's security forces have also always been poised to stop them from such barbarism. Some instances of this are the victories that they (the latter) recently recorded over the criminals by ways of killing many of them, as well as making several thousands of others to surrender themselves for Government amnesty.

In a new interview with the News Agency of NigerIa (NAN), the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, spoke extensively about the ongoing counter-terrorism war. And while positing that NigerIa was winning the face-off, he however said something of note, and which corroborated as existing revelation that the Terrorists have been extending their presence to Kaduna and Niger States which are North-West states. According to him, as a result of the sustained serious Military bombardments of them in the North-East, they have been fleeing from that part of the country to the North-West. But he however gave an assurance that it was only a matter of time before they are finally flushed out.

From what the Minister had said about the fight against Terrorism, three things can be pointed out. They are as stated below:

1.) While the insurgents are seemingly being frustrated in the North-East, some of the surviving ones among them are relocating to the North-West to continue with their evil ways.

2.) In the interview, he also confirmed that the outlaws were combining with their Bandit fellows in the North-West. Proofs of this are the increase in the insecurity in both kaduna and Niger States. It is of note that in the latter, the Terrorists were said to have claimed up to 500 communities where they have pegged a girl's Marriage age at twelve years.

3.) Reports have it that the Terrorists were advancing to Shiroro community in Niger State. And concerns are being raised by many that they might take over Shiroro Power Station that is located there. Thus, for tthem to still be capable of such, in addition to conquering hundreds of communities as mentioned above, it means that they still have the ability to get stronger, especially as they have also allegedly been doing mass recruitments of new members into their midst.
