Coalition of Nigerian Youth for Peace and Development has said that for there to be total victory against insurgency and banditry in the country, there must be a sincere regional collaboration between the Nigerian troops and the troops of neighbouring countries.
The group was reacting to recent attacks by the insurgents in Borno State and bandits in Katsina State leaving scores dead, livestock and several other properties destroyed.
The Coalition in a statement signed by its Organising Secretary, Josiah Useni and made available our Correspondent, Yagana Ali in Yola explained that the pattern of attacks has proven that the surviving insurgents and bandits from the military onslaught flee and regroup in the neighbouring countries to later launch attack on soft spots.
The latest statement credited Borno State governor, Prof. Babagana Zulum on Wednesday when he visited Fanduma Kolomdi village in Gubio local government area, where the Boko Haram terrorists attacked.
They urged the Nigerian military to undertake a final onslaught that would put an end to the insurgents in the shore of the Lake Chad.
The Coalition of Nigerian Youth for Peace and Development explained that there was an urgent need for the scattered settlements to come together as larger communities for more effective policing of the area.
