Army cautions against subversive acts to weaken troops in the northeast

We regrettably further observed  that the unscrupulous elements are also perfecting strategy to rubbish the government’s efforts in the provision of safety and  security for her citizens. They are determined to dampen troops’ morale especially in the North East,  so that the troops  will become compromised against the war efforts and complicate the security situation in the country for selfish and cheap political gains and expediency

In reaction to myriads of unconfirmed and unverified reports that are being released in the social media and a section of the media,the Nigerian Army has issued a serious warning to those it tagged as unscrupulous elements.In a statement made available to journalists by the Army Spokes man, Brigadier S.K Usman the Nigerian Army said that it has noted with great concern the concerted efforts by some unpatriotic elements to politicize and derail the ongoing fight against terrorism and insurgency in the country. 
“This is manifested in the recent systematic releases and recycling of old BHT propaganda video clips, old interviews of disgruntled and cowardly soldiers, as well as false and inaccurate news reports by some section of the media.We regrettably further observed  that the unscrupulous elements are also perfecting strategy to rubbish the government’s efforts in the provision of safety and  security for her citizens. They are determined to dampen troops’ morale especially in the North East,  so that the troops  will become compromised against the war efforts and complicate the security situation in the country for selfish and cheap political gains and expediency,” said General Usman.
He went further to add to say, “We would like to reiterate that Nigeria is at war with Boko Haram terrorists, in any form or guise that they may manifest and strongly warn these subversive elements to desist from these unwholesome efforts. We would like to warn that the Nigerian Army will no longer tolerate these subversive acts and sabotage aimed at dampening troops’ morale, affect their performance and to finally abandon the war.”
General Usman then said that the Army will continue to monitor the activities of these unscrupulous elements. “We will continue to monitor subversive propaganda and take necessary action against perpetrators. The Nigerian Army will remain undaunted in the successful prosecution of this war against  terrorism, insurgents, militants and bandits in the country.”
