He stated that the Civilian JTF induction “will greatly help in containing the activities of Boko Haram because of their knowledge of the terrain and identifying Boko Haram members”.
He added that no underaged CJTF would partake in the operation and further urged the public to lend their support by fishing out the remaining insurgents.
Governor Zulum, renewing his call on the Boko Haram insurgents to surrender said, “For those that are still in the bush, terrorizing innocent lives and destroying properties, I call upon all of them to surrender.
“You are killing your brothers and sisters, destroying your own infrastructures that were built using money generated through tax from your forefathers. Today, we have all seen the level of devastation, nobody is been left, we are all affected in one way or another”.
Theatre Commander, Operation ‘Lafiya Dole’, Major Gen. Farouq Yahaya, also stated that adequate arrangements were being made as regards the welfare of CJTF’s that would take part in the operation.
