Ibrahim A.A, a native of Maiduguri in Borno State has called on the Service Chiefs to come to the rescue of his people, Nigeria and humanity at large by flushing out remnants of Boko Haram terrorists like they did in time past.
Ibrahim gave this charge in a touching letter to the heads of the nation’s security architecture on Tuesday.
The Maiduguri native recalled the genesis of the Boko Haram insurgency, its transition into a national and then regional crisis and how President Muhammadu Buhari’s election in 2015 ushered in a new phase.
According to Ibrahim, the appointment of the Service Chiefs particularly triggered the turnaroud.
Among others, he recollected how troops repelled the terrorists’ attempts to take over Maiduguri with superior fire power.
He recalled how the military killed many of the radical Islamists and pushed them farther to the fringes of the Lake Chad.
Ibrahim, who is a businessman, acknowledged that “many of us have returned to our work and businesses and no longer had to be looking over our shoulders before taking a single step.”
However, following the recent attack at Zowo community in Gubio Local Government, Ibrahim urged the military chiefs to bring back their ruthlessness.
He, therefore, urged them to sustain the momentum which he said ” has restored our hope and not allow evil to triumph over us.”
