Soldiers of the Military High Command have launched offensive operations against terrorists and kidnappers carrying out abductions in different communities in the satellite areas of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

In the ongoing operations across different hotspots, according to the authorities, no fewer than 10 suspects including one violent extremist informant cum collaborator, as well as two kidnappers have been taken into custody for interrogation.

Fielding questions from journalists at Defence Headquarters, Abuja on Thursday, shortly after a media briefing, the Director, Defence Media Operations, Edward Buba, asked the residents of the communities and the FCT in general not to panic.

Buba, a Major-General in the Nigerian Army, said the military and other security operatives, particularly the police, are working closely to ensure the current situation in the nation’s capital becomes a by-gone thing.

The military’s spokesman also disclosed that troops would continue their onslaught against terrorists in the neighbouring states that share boundaries with the FCT, adding that ongoing military operation would make the FCT much safer than before.
