The Coalition of Nigerian Activists for Greater Nigeria (CNAGN) has said that troops of Operation Lafiya Dole deserve special laurels for their tremendous feat against Boko Haram terrorists in the northeast.
This special recognition, the coalition said, trails the troops’ recent onslaught around the Timbuktu-Triangle in Borno State which was once reported to be under the control of the radical jihadists.
In a statement signed by its national coordinator, Kenneth Anayo, on Thursday, April 7, the group of activists expressed confidence in the COAS and his troops as they match closer towards victory over the terrorists who already appears to be depleted.
The activists, however, urged the Federal Government to carry out a similar operation on the civilian and non-combatant wings of Boko Haram, who arm them with information.
Anayo said the punishment that the Nigerian Army has inflicted on Boko Haram terrorists is a befitting gift to Nigerians at a time that people are eager for good news in the midst of the COVID-19 scourge.
He said the coalition is proud that a time has come for all Nigerians to stand behind the troops to defeat the terrorists and their agents of darkness.
"We want to appeal to the Federal Government to reciprocate the good work the military is doing in flushing out the leftovers of Boko Haram elements by unleashing a similar operation on the civilian and non-combatant wings of Boko Haram," Anayo said.
He said the government should act on intelligence at its disposal about the sympathizers, sponsors, enablers and collaborators of Boko Haram.
Anayo added that it is time, for the Nigerian government to take a firm stand against propaganda deployed in support of Boko Haram and those behind such poison.
"We equate this with the Nigerian Military being on the threshold of cutting off the head of the beast but the government and the rest of the country must take active steps to incinerate its carcass so that has no prospect of spawning miniatures or clones in its dying moment," he added.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the chief of army staff, Tukur Buratai, led the operation against terrorists in the northeast.

Also, a group of African women has hailed the Nigerian military’s clearance operation against Boko Haram terrorists within the Timbuktu triangle.
The women said the operations of the Nigerian army troops against the terrorists serve as, the sole bright spot in an utterly gloomy Coronavirus (COVID-19) season.
