FG appeals to sponsors of Boko Haram to desist

Abuja – The Federal Government has appealed to
financiers of the Boko Haram insurgents to desist
from sponsoring the terrorists and surrender to
security forces as some members of the sect had
done recently.
Mr Mike Omeri, the Coordinator, National
Information Centre, made the appeal in
statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja.
The statement which was personally signed by
Omeri, said that there was no wisdom in fighting
against ourselves.
“They (terrorists) should know that this war can
never be won by them,’’ he said.
Omeri reiterated the resolve of the government
to rescue all persons and communities
traumatised by the insurgency, adding that there
were concerted efforts to restore normalcy to
those communities.
He commended Nigerians for their support and
cooperation with the security forces, saying this
was responsible for the successes so far recorded
in the campaign to end insurgency.
The coordinator said that intense fighting was
currently going on in parts of Adamawa, especially
in Michika and Bazza among other areas to flush
out the insurgents.
He said that security forces had been recording
tremendous gains in recent weeks.
Omeri noted that the security awareness
programme put in place by the federal
government was responsible for nationwide
hitch-free celebration of the 2014 Eid-el-Kabir.
