USMAN MOHAMMED, SEPTEMBER 23. 2021, 04:48 PM
Maj. Gen. Christopher Musa, the theatre commander, Operation Hadin Kai, says the Nigerian military will not allow the Islamic States West African Province (ISWAP), a foreign terrorist group, to have a strong footing in Nigeria.
Musa stated this in an interview with newsmen on Wednesday, in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno.
According to him, ISWAP is a foreign terrorist organisation that is funded by foreign individuals and probably some locals and that they have foreign leadership which means they have no stake in Nigeria.
'It is very clear that ISWAP are foreigners coming to invade our country which we will never allow to happen.
'That’s why I want to encourage those of them, especially those members that are with them to pull out and understand that they have no stake in what those guys are doing.
'They don’t wish the country well they don’t wish themselves well and we will never allow any foreigner step an inch on ground in Nigeria,' he said.
The theatre commander stated that the military had advised the governments on the need to adopt the system of involving the victims in dialogue on the handling of the surrendered terrorists.
Conflict Reporting is dangerous and risky. Our reporters constantly face life-threatening challenges, sometimes surviving ambushes, kidnap attempts and attacks by the whiskers as they travel and go into communities to get authentic and firsthand information. But we dare it every day, nonetheless, in order to keep you informed of the true situation of the victims, the trends in the conflicts and ultimately help in peace building processes. But these come at huge cost to us. We are therefore appealing to you to help our cause by donating to us through any of the following means. You can also donate working tools, which are even more primary to our work. We thank you sincerely as you help our cause.
