The Acting Director, Defence Information, Military Headquarters, Abuja, Col. Rabe Abubakar,at a press conference in Lagos on Thursday, said that even though it's imperative to the military to rescue the kidnapped Chibok girls, there was no immediate hurry to do so because their rescue demanded adequate patience and planning.
He said, “The issue of the low morale of the Nigerian military men has now become a thing of the past. The operation to recover the Chibok girls is alive and still ongoing. We have continued to make rescue efforts, and we will do all within our powers to bring the girls.
“However, we will not rush to do this. It requires diligent intervention and a high-level operation to rescue the girls. In due time, every captive of Boko Haram will be released.
A lot of achievements have been recorded recently, and this cannot be disconnected from the high morale of the army. “We want to assure our citizens that soon, insurgency will be a thing of the past. But, it is not only about the military or the North-Eastern region. It is our collective duty to ensure that there is peace in the country.
“The Nigerian army has put together a multilateral cooperation. Niger, Nigeria, Chad and Cameroon are partnering to ensure we win the terrorism war.”
We are not sleeping. We are cooperating with the relevant agencies in the fight against the terrorists.”
