In a statement signed by NDF secretary-general, Bolaji Abdulkadir, on Thursday, August 27, the group said that the decimation of terrorists and their leaders in Wulgo and Sabon Tumbun in Borno is commendable.

He also said that the capture of bandits and kidnappers in Ottu Forest along the Abuja-Lokoja expressway is a sign of more to come. 

Abdulkadir said the onslaught against the terrorists in the recent operations by the Nigerian army troops is laudable.

The NDF, however, advised those secretly sponsoring and supporting the act of terrorism directly or indirectly to quit as an end is already in sight. 

While calling on patriotic citizens to continue to rally round the army chief and troops, the group charged the army to intensify its onslaught on terrorists, bandits and kidnappers.
