Boko Haram's Attempts to Embarrass the Government Will Fail - Chief of Defence Staff

Chief of Defence Staff, General Christopher Musa, stated on Monday, July 8, that the recent bombings in Gwoza and Pulka towns in Borno State were intended to embarrass the government.

During a visit to Governor Caleb Mutfwang of Plateau State, General Musa assured Nigerians that these efforts would not succeed and reaffirmed the government’s commitment to maintaining security and stability.

He said;

“The armed forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and other security agencies agencies are working tirelessly to ensure that there is peace and security in the country. What had happened in Gwoza shows clearly those that mean bad or evil for the country are not relenting. And so, we must continue to work hard.

“It was a deliberate thing to embarrass the government but they would not succeed. Recently, we were able to arrest persons with IED equipment trying to blow up some installations. We will continue to work heard. Our appeal to Nigerians is those people perpetrating this evil act are within. They sleep and live within our environment.

“If we report as quickly as possible, actions would be taken. Security cannot be everywhere. We are not magicians. We also rely on intelligence we are getting from the people. That is why we call on Nigerians that the responsibility to secure Nigeria depends on all Nigerians working together with security agencies. We are committed to ensure that is achieved.”
