The Nigerian Army has spoken of its resolve to wipe out the remnants of Boko Haram insurgents within the four months that the ongoing Operation 'LAST HOLD' in the North East of the country is scheduled to last.

To ensure that the operation achieves the desired result, “additional troops and heavy equipment have been earmarked to beef up those already deployed. Troops and equipment are already assembling for onward movement to the operation area,” Director Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Texas Chukwu, said in a statement obtained by News Express on Saturday.

“The operation expected to last four months entails the deployment of additional four manoeuvre brigades. The end state of Operation LAST HOLD is the total defeat of Boko Haram Terrorists to facilitate the restoration of fishing, farming and other economic activities in the Lake Chad Basin general area,” Chukwu disclosed.

According to him, “The operation which is a major military exercise has Major General Abba Dikko as its Commander. The senior officer is already on ground coordinating the movement of troops and equipment.

“Members of the general public and particularly residents around troops’ staging areas and environs are advised not to panic on sighting mass movement of troops and equipment as their safety is guaranteed.

“The Nigerian Army wishes to reiterate its loyalty and subordination to the civil authority at all times while carrying out its constitutional roles.”
