Following a thorough tour of liberated communities in the northeast, the Coalition for Human Rights and Rights Monitoring Group has praised the Nigerian Army for restoring peace to the region.
The group, consisting of 10 civil society organisations revealed in a press conference on Monday, October 14, said that it undertook a 10-day assessment to gather first-hand information on the state of affairs in the region.
In a statement signed by the president, Gabriel Agidi, the coalition reckoned that the country has made tremendous progress in the fight against terrorism.
As part of it its numerous observations, the civil rights group hailed the introduction of the Super Camp Strategy, describing it as “a massive success”.
The group further acknowledged that the gallant troops are in high spirits at various locations, welcomed by cheering locals.
It, however, noted that a lot still needs to be done urgently to ensure that life returns to these liberated areas.
Agidi said: "There was also a near-complete breakdown of basic infrastructures in these communities, and it somewhat made access such a herculean task for our team. Nonetheless, we were able to navigate our way through the steep terrain in furtherance of our objective."
Stating that authorities must quit shying away from addressing the fact that there were also some challenges as evident on periodic ambushes, Agidi said the existence of the Super Camp Strategy as introduced recently, which in our opinion, is a massive success as it has to a large extent, restricted and limited the Boko Haram/ISWAP offensive.
"We commend this initiative and encourage the military authorities to do all within its powers to strengthen and consolidate on the continued implementation of the Super Camp Strategy," Agidi said.
