Economic development of communities, and securing the borders of the nation, has been described as panacea for sustaining the war against insurgency.
The theatre commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Major General Lucky Irabor stated this on NTA’s current affairs programme Good Morning Nigeria.
The commander says leadership was key to the success of operation lafiya dole and this was provided by the chief of army staff General Tukur Buratai as well as other security agencies.
However, he emphasised that the issue of security is a multi-sectorial engagement.
Other discussants implored the military to be cautious and not to be quick in recalling the troops back to the barracks while emphasising on the need to sensitize communities on the need for peace
With about one thousand two hundred and forty girls rescued the major general reassured Nigerians that the military will not rest on its oars in ensuring that the remaining chibok girls are found and rescued.
