The Coalition of Northern Civil Society Organisations have urged the Nigerian military to sustain its current onslaught against terrorists in northern Borno.
According to the CSOs, the recent attacks by the sect is a propaganda attempt, born out of desperation to remain relevant amidst massive success by the troops.
Speaking at a press conference on Monday in Abuja through its spokesperson, Chief Aper Adam, the group said Boko Haram’s new penchant for targeting Governor Babagana Zulum is a frantic attempt to satisfy its financiers by making a high-profile score.
It added that the terrorists’ use of Improvised Explosive Devices, especially on bad roads, to attack troops and innocent citizens is another new tactics.
While calling on the state government to fix major roads in parts of northern Borno, the CSOs urged the troops to maintain the momentum.
The group, however, warned those supporting the sect to withdraw as it has no hope and future.
