Ihejirika-COAS-298x295Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Azubuike Ihejirika, has said that the use of force against insurgents in the country will continue until the terrorists sheath their swords.

The army chief who said this yesterday in Lagos, at an interactive session with the theme, “Enhancing Military- Media Relations Towards Improved Security,” held at the 81 Division Auditorium, Marina, Lagos, noted that abandoning the use of military might on insurgents or terrorists groups like Boko Haram may be counterproductive.

“Curbing terrorism, like every other complex problem, requires multi-faceted approach. There is no tested solution that you could describe as solution to the menace. There is no country where terrorism has been curbed that force was not applied”, he said.

“There is none in history. We have proven cases in history where government efforts relaxed and the terrorists use the opportunity to regroup and re-equipped. I talk so much about force because that is my own line of business. I am to destroy the terrorists if I am able to find them.”

On the call by some Nigerians that government should dialogue with the group, Gen. Ihejirika urged such persons to take the initiative which he said would be supported by the Federal Government.

“The government has made its position repeatedly clear that it is open to dialogue and discussion.

“I can even add that even those calling for dialogue on their own can undertake dialogue. Nobody is stopping anybody from dialoguing with anybody. If a leader, politician has been able to come up with a solution government will buy it,” he said.
