Defence Headquarters this evening confirmed the flushing out of Boko Haram terrorists from over seven towns in the country’s North-East, vowing to maintain the momentum until the terrorists are obliterated.

Giving one of the most reassuring messages in recent times concerning the battle with insurgents, Defence Headquarters tweeted that Mubi, Michika, Bazza, Gulak, Gwoza, Bama, Gamboru Ngala and other towns and villages in the region are being stabilised through air and land attacks against fleeing and dying terrorists.

“The efforts are yielding impressive results in the overall move to rid the areas of terrorists activities,” DQH said in one of the tweets.

It however, frowned at what it called the determination by a section of the media to cause panic and chaos in the region by deliberately ignoring visibly formidable security measures and reporting negativity.

The tweet reads:

“Alarmist Report on Foreign and Online Media on Maiduguri is clearly intended to cause Panic in the city and the nation.

“All facets of security arrangements for the defence of Maiduguri has been upgraded to handle any planned attack or attempt to disrupt the city’s prevailing peace. This kind of alarmist report is uncalled for in view of the efforts and alertness.

“Citizens are nevertheless enjoined to remain vigilant as they go about their lawful business.

“Meanwhile situation in Mubi, Michika, Bazza, Gulak, Gwoza, Bama, Gamboru Ngala & other parts of the North East is being stabilized as highly coordinated air and land operations are ongoing.

“The efforts are yielding impressive results in the overall move to rid the areas of terrorists activities”
