The General Officer Commanding (GOC) 3 Division, Maxwell Khobe Cantonment, Jos, Brig.- Gen. Muhammed Isa Aliyu, has said the Nigerian Army will rebuild schools destroyed by Boko Haram insurgents in Adamawa, Yobe and Borno states.
Aliyu said the measure is part of Federal Government’s efforts to resettle the communities devastated by the insurgents.
The GOC, who addressed reporters in his office yesterday, said: “Army will soon begin a rehabilitation and reconstruction programme because we are confident that the battle against Boko Haram has been won by the federal troops”.
“The Army has overcome counter-terrorism because today Boko Haram has no existence in the country.
“The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, is committed to the rehabilitation of victims. Displaced people have started returning to their homes.
“As far as the COAS is concerned, the war against terrorism will not only stop at the defeat of Boko Haram, it will not be completed until displaced people are returned to their homes”, he added.
Brig.-Gen. Aliyu urged reporters to join in the fight against insurgency by informing the public of the success attained, especially the use of new equipment, which made their men to win the war against terrorism.
