'We know sponsors of theBoko Haram insurgents' –Nigerian Army

Nigerians are eagerly waiting on the military
authorities to reveal the names of the
sponsors » of the dreaded Boko Haram » sect
after the Army authority claimed that it knows

those behind the insurgents.
The Theater Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole
based in Maiduguri, Borno State, Maj.-Gen.
Yushau Abubakar, while speaking to the News
Agency of Nigeria correspondents, said the Army
has a list of the sponsors of the sect and that it
is doing everything possible to end the
insurgency by the end of this year.
“Investigation on those that we suspect that are
either participating or hiding, fueling or conniving
with those that carried out those acts, is
ongoing. They will be exposed in due course,”
Abubakar assured.
He also pointed out that the recent spate of
bombings were aimed at diverting the attention
of the military from achieving its target in the
ongoing anti-terrorism war.
“I want to assure all that for every second that
passes, we get more committed to fighting the
insurgents; we cannot be deterred.
We are doing as much as we could to ensure
that we completely eradicate the insurgents as
quickly as possible because we are aware of the
time line within which to complete the task.
We searched the houses and certain items that
we recovered at the vicinity gave us some clues.
The citizens need to know that security is their
personal responsibility as individuals.
They must be able to secure themselves and
doing so means they need to be security
conscious.
Any suspicious movement within the environment
should be reported to security agents
immediately,” Abubakar advised.
