    At a feast organised for journalists by the army on Sunday in  Maiduguri, The General Officer Commanding (GOC), 7 Division, Nigerian Army, Brig.-Gen. A.A. Eyitayo.

     

    Eyitayo, who is also the Commander Sector 1, Operation Hadin Kai, declared that the recent military onslaught against the terrorists dealt a big blow and left their remnants in disarray.

    He stated that no one including the military was glad over the bloodshed, therefore, there is a need for the remnants of the insurgents to leverage on the amnesty and repent their nefarious ways.

    This, he said, would give them (insurgents) the opportunity to enjoy rehabilitation and acquire skills to enable them to live a useful life in society.

    The GOC lauded the contributions of the media in the counter-insurgency campaign and urged it to enlighten the insurgents to see the light and repent from their wasteful ventures.

    “We are not here for bloodletting, nobody is happy that people are dying.

    “Some of them (insurgents) are listening to the media so it is good for us to appeal to them through the media to shun violence, turn up to seek forgiveness and reconciliation,” Eyitayo said.

    According to him, the feast with journalists was a show of appreciation to the media for their reportage of military operations in the state.

    “For the past three months since I assumed duty in Maiduguri in this capacity, there has never been any bad report.

    “This is to appreciate the media for positive reportage,” he said.

    In his remark, Mohammed Ibrahim, Secretary, Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Borno State Council, commended the GOC for carrying the media along and assured him of more support and cooperation.

    Mohammed also lauded the military and other security agencies involved in the fight against insurgency for their sacrifices and urged them not to relent, adding that the people of the northeast region were solidly behind them.
