The Acting Director, Defence Information, Colonel Rabe Abubakar says the end of Boko Haram activities in Nigeria and the West African region is imminent. Speaking to pressmen in Abuja today September 14th, Col. Abubakar said that with the renewed commitment of the military leadership and the
determination of the troops in the mission areas, Boko Haram activities will soon be a thing of the past. He attributed the feat recorded so far to motivation and injection of right arsenal in the prosecution of the battle against insurgency.
While making comments on the issue of suicide bombings, Colonel Abubakar re-assured the public that the Defence Headquarters is re-strategising to halt such inhuman activities. He brought into limelight how a suicide bomber attempting to blow up Yankari Motor Park in Bauchi was arrested before he could commit his heinous crime. He therefore appealed to Nigerians to be on alert and conscious of crowded and populated public places including markets and places of worship. He charged members of the public to collaborate with the military and other security agencies in the supply of timely information that could assist the agencies to be pro-active in their resolve to contain insurgency.
