The past one month has been filled with interesting stories and headlines in the country.
From the killings of several members of Book Haram/Islamic State of West African State, to the rearrest and repatriation of Nnamdi Kanu, and now the arrest of Sunday Igboho, it has been a hectic period indeed.
We are all aware that the federal government ensured the arrests of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, and popular Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho.
It is a known fact that these two activists jointly held sway in the Southern part of the country for a long time.
They were almost seen as gods and untouchable by some sections of the people in the region.
These two men had almost turned the South East and South West to their empire respectively.
Following the arrest of these two activist, the federal government has sent a clear message to Nigerians that it will not tolerate any move to disintegrate the country.
The federal government has also reiterated that nobody or group of persons will be allowed to incite violence against the Nigerian State under the cover of activism.
The message has been sent, it is clear and simple ‘the unity of Nigeria is not negotiable’.
The second message is regarding the fight against terrorism and banditry in the country.
Our troops have recorded tremendous successes on different offensive operations against terrorists and bandits.
At the beginning of this month, our soldiers eliminated no fewer than 37 terrorists in Yobe. Yesterday, about 28 terrorists reportedly surrendered to the Nigerian Army.
The message here is simple ‘the federal government will not sit back and allow criminal elements to turn Nigeria to a battle ground.”
If the Nigerian military continue at this pace, banditry and terrorism may become history soon.
