North Central Egalitarian Congress has hailed the Chief of Army Staff Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, and the Nigerian Army’s 4 Special Forces Command for successfully riding Kogi and Nasarawa States of Darul Salam/Boko Haram terrorists.
NCEC gave the commendation in a press statement signed by its President, Etubi Odiba Enebi, on Satuday.
According to the group, the dislodgement of the terrorists would bring a drastic end to cattle rustling, banditry, kidnappings and other forms of criminalities in the states.
Consequently, the Nigeria Army 4 Special Forces Command in a joint operation with Whirl stroke embarked on an operation code-named ‘Operation Nut Cracker’ to flush Ugya forest, Panda forest, Uttu forest and contagious hills in Nasarawa State.
The operation has yielded fruits with over 778 captives recently freed after troops raided the enclave of the terrorist group.
The North Central Egalitarian Congress is in receipt of the exploits of troops of the Nigerian Army 4 Special Forces Command in the displacement of the Darul Salam/Boko Haram terrorists from their camps in Kogi and Nasarawa states recently.
The group said they are glad that the commitment of the Nigerian Army towards the preservation of peace in the North Central region is yielding the desired results in numerous ways.
And consequently call on all other stakeholders in the North Central region to extend their support to the Nigerian Army towards ridding North Central Nigeria of acts of terrorism and other criminal activities.
The group, however, charged the troops not to relent in their efforts until the region is cleared of all remnants of the Darul Salam/Boko Haram terrorists.
