President Muhammadu Buhari says the insurgents of terrorist sect, Boko Haram are determined to find their way back into society, having been defeated in the war against insurgency.
Reacting to the recent bombings in Dalori, Gombi and Chibok, the President said the insurgents are desperate to embarrass his government.
Consequently, he urged Nigerians, especially those resident in areas previously ravaged by terrorists, to be more vigilant and ready to work with security operatives in ending the war against insurgency.
A statement was released to this effect on Sunday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu.
The President said the Boko Haram insurgents had been weakened from the sustained bombardments of their camps and hideouts by the Nigerian military, hence their desperation to use any means to wreak havoc.
“I urge all citizens wherever they live to own the war against terror and to be part of the fight because it is the only way we can finish the remaining work that needs to be done to make our country safe again.
“Having lost the war, they (the insurgents) are seeking ways and means to gradually find their way back into society. They are not returning to contribute but to cause more havoc. They are so desperate to embarrass the government and the people that they have no qualms attacking isolated communities and markets.”
