The Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, yesterday gave an assurance that the armed forces would crush the Boko Haram insurgency in the Northeastern part of the country.

Badeh spoke when the Adamawa Caucus of the House of Representatives, led by Anthony Madwatte, visited him at his office in Abuja.

Badeh is from Mubi North LGA of Adamawa State.

The CDS maintained that the military was doing all it could to route the insurgents.

“What I can guarantee you is that we will do our best but we solicit your assistance to ensure that this war is over. We look forward to your protection; you must give us the legal backing for us to do our job.

“If you want your son to succeed then you must assist him, if your son succeeds then, the armed forces have succeeded”, he said.

Earlier, Madwatte said they were at the Defence Headquarters to congratulate Badeh on his appointment as the CDS.
