Nigeria vows to crush all terrorists by December

ABUJA, Nigeria (The Informant247) – Nigeria’s government will eliminate all terrorists by December this year, the country’s interior minister said on Monday.

“Nigerians have the assurance of all of us that their security is guaranteed. So, we’re here to assure you that you’re safe, that is why we’re here from the instructions of the president that you’re safe and that each day going to December, our safety and security will be better,” Interior Minister Rauf Aregbesola told reporters at a joint security press conference with service chiefs.

“What we face mostly now are clashes of cowardly attacks from those that have been routed in one locality or the other moving to give a false impression that they’re still strong. Our ultimate goal is to eliminate them altogether and restore total peace in every inch of the Nigerian soil; that we’re going to do by God’s grace, by December of this year.

“It is sounding tall but take it home, we’re determined to ensure that every inch of the Nigerian soil is safe. The determination is there and the order has been given,” he said.

He said the current security challenges were exacerbated by the restrictions and deprivations of COVID-19 despite the government’s ameliorative measures.

“But we shall continue to protect the lives and property of Nigerians and foreigners in our midst. We shall continue to work for the peace of the nation and deter elements that constitute threats to the people. We shall bear the full powers of the government to secure every inch of our land. We shall not rest until peace is fully restored in Nigeria,” he assured.

Insurgency in the northeast – that has festered for more than a decade – and rising kidnappings for ransom by armed gangs mainly in the northcentral are some of the security threats that Nigeria is grappling with.
