The Nigerian Army has said concerted efforts to derail the war against terrorism and insurgency will not be tolerated.

Army spokesman Brigadier General Sani Usman in a statement yesterday said, “The Nigerian Army has noted with great concern the concerted efforts by some unpatriotic elements to politicise and derail the ongoing fight against terrorism and insurgency in the country.”

“This is manifested in the recent systematic releases and recycling of old BHT propaganda video clips, old interviews of disgruntled and cowardly soldiers, as well as false and inaccurate news reports by some section of the media.

“We regrettably further observed that the unscrupulous elements are also perfecting strategy to rubbish the government’s efforts in the provision of safety and security for her citizens.”

He said elements are determined to dampen troops’ morale especially in the North East, so that the troops will become compromised against the war efforts and complicate the security situation in the country for selfish and cheap political gains and expediency.”

He noted that the army would monitor subversive propaganda and take necessary action against perpetrators.

He said the Army remained undaunted in the successful prosecution of the war against terrorism, insurgents, militants, and bandits in the country.

The army statement came hours after a news report that Boko Haram fighters seized Baga, Doron-Baga, Kross Kawwa, Bunduran, Kekeno and Kukawa towns of Borno State following three days of fierce battles from Wednesday to Friday last week.
