President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday in Abuja offered reason for the recent devastating attacks of Boko Haram insurgents in parts of the country’s North-East.

Reacting to the spate of suicide bombings in Chibok market, Dolari Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp in Borno State and Gombi market in Adamawa State, Buhari said the insurgents had suffered immensely from the sustained bombardments of their camps and hideouts by the Nigerian military and had resorted to using desperate measures to gain cheap media attention.

The President in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant (Media and Publicity) Garba Shehu called on all Nigerians, especially those that are resident in areas previously ravaged by terrorists, to be more vigilant and ready to work with security operatives in ending the war against insurgency.

“I urge all citizens wherever they live to own the war against terror and to be part of the fight because it is the only way we can finish the remaining work that needs to be done to make our country safe again,” the President said.

Buhari said the terrorists had been rendered weak, confused and homeless after repeated bombings and ravaging of their camps and hide outs by the military, forcing them to find their way back into the society to wreak havoc, like the case of the Dolari IDP.

“Having lost the war, they are seeking ways and means to gradually find their way back into society. They are not returning to contribute but to cause more havoc. They are so desperate to embarrass the government and the people that they have no qualms attacking isolated communities and markets,” he added.

The President noted that the materials for the Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) were locally sourced by the insurgents, He urged Nigerians to be more circumspect and report suspicious purchases and movements of unusual components in any part of the country, especially the North-East.

Buhari extended his condolences to all the people of Chibok, Gombi and Dolari who lost loved ones in the recent attacks and prayed that the Almighty God will comfort them and grant the injured persons quick recovery.
