Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.- General Tukur Buratai has lamented that some Nigerians are erroneously given undue publicity to the remnant of Boko Haram terrorists.

He said, “This worrisome development has further boosted the image of the criminal gang thus assuming larger than life status.”

Mr Buratai made the plea Friday when he visited troops’ locations in the North-east.

“It is wrong for any person to eulogize or support murderers, bandits and armed robbers that the known Boko Haram terrorists group has turned into,” he said.

He said the act is encouraging the criminal gangs, in the name of Boko Haram or Islamic State West Africa Province, ISWAP, in their act against innocent citizens.

According to him, “It is common knowledge that the criminals no longer pretend to be championing any cause other than quest for materialism as manifested in murder and terror on hapless people.

“Unfortunately, many Nigerians are not aware that giving prominence to the criminal activities of the terrorists group through sensational headlines and fake news in both electronic and print media could also amount to tacit support to terrorism which violates the Terrorism Prevention Act 2011.

“It is therefore important that all Nigerians to rally round our gallant troops as they fight these criminals. All should know that the support to the efforts of the Armed Forces of Nigeria in the counter terrorism efforts would boost their morale and it will be highly appreciated.

“The Nigerian Army is asking for the continued understanding and cooperation of all Nigerians and well-meaning people.”
