The Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj. Gen. John Enenche, said the military will soon get rid of Darul Salam terrorist group in the country while speaking to the journalists on the operations of the Armed Forces on Friday in Abuja.
According to the NAN repor, the Coordinator noted that the military was working with all stakeholders to put an end to the operations of the group in the northern part of the country, adding that the Defence Headquarters was determined to deploy both kinetic and non-kinetic means to rid the nation of the group and other forms of criminal elements.
According to Enenche, no fewer than 410 members of Darul Salam terrorist group surrendered to the troops of Operation Whirl Stroke during an encounter at Uttu in Toto Local Government Area of Nasarawa State in August including women and children.
He said “The group, I can assure you that in no distant time, will go into extinction.
“We are putting pressure on them, as all hands are on deck and we are getting good information; and we are tracking them with those that are suspected to be collaborators that fence them.
“So that is where we are now, and like I always say, it is not always good for me to say this where they are or not, or to tell you that we are sending troops to anywhere, but we are on top of it.
“We are not assuming at all, because it is a group that their own motivation is based on ideology and what is difficult to kill kinetically is ideology. So ideology can be defeated by all stakeholders, particularly those that speak to their conscience, (or) that speak and touch their mind.”
