No terrorist flag in Borno villages – group
Written by Morenike Adebayo on September 29, 2016
The North East Coalition Against Terrorism (NECAT) has said reports in some section of the media that Boko Haram terrorist group has hoisted their flag in some Borno villages, is untrue and a total misrepresentation of the true situation in the affected villages. Reports had said that the terrorists hoisted their black flag in Kubirivour, Boftari and Kuburmbalah villages near Chibok in Borno State.
Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, NECAT National Cordinator, Yusuf Mshelizza, however calls on Nigerians to avoid given attention to the propaganda on the terrorists. Mshelizza however said it is true that the insurgents have renewed their onslaught on some communities after recruiting some miscreants from the neighbouring countries of Niger and Chad. He commended the Nigerian Army for its globally acclaimed operations against the terrorists, while also appealing that the army leadership should not relent in evolving innovative solutions to tackling terrorism.
