UAG Hails Military Over Terrorists’ Surrender
The Unity Advocacy Group has hailed the Armed Forces of Nigeria/DHQ for its determination to restore peace in the country.
UAG in a news release said the recent surrender of some Boko Haram terrorists and elements of Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) revealed that the AFN is making the country hot for terrorists.
The release signed by the group’s Convener, Ifeanyi Aigbedion further urged Amnesty International to stop boosting the morale of criminals in the country by its continuous attack on the security agencies.
UAG further commended the Defence and Police Officers’ Wives Association, DEPOWA, for the various skills acquisition and vocational training towards empowerment of women and youths to achieve economic prosperity of the nation.
AThe UAG said: “The recent surrender of some Boko Haram/ISWAP fighters show that the Armed Forces of Nigeria is the forest untenable for them.
“Notable among them is the top Boko Haram insurgent, (Amir) Senior Commander, and his family who surrendered to troops of Operation Hadin Kai in Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno State.
“Nigerians must support and continue to back our military personnel as they seek to restore peace in the country.
“We use this medium to appeal to the remaining fighters to lay down arms and join the Armed Forces of Nigeria under the present leadership to make our country peaceful and economically prosperous.
“We use this opportunity to urge Amnesty International to stop boosting the morale of criminals in the country. These criminals commit atrocities hoping that human Rights bodies will come to their aid. This is the human rights they deny their numerous victims.
“We are glad to note the numerous achievements of the present leadership of Defence and Police Officers’ Wives Association (DEPOWA) within a short time. Without doubt, this will boost the morale of our military personnel and make them continue to give their best to the country.”
