Stop Financing Boko Haram, FG Urges Sponsors

The Federal Government has urged the financiers of the Boko Haram terrorists to stop sponsoring the insurgents and surrender to security forces as some members of the group had done in recent times.

The Coordinator, National Information Centre, Mike Omeri, made the appeal in a statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja.

Omeri said that there was no wisdom in fighting against the government, reasoning that the war can never be won by the terrorists.

He, however, reiterated the commitment of the federal government to rescue everyone and communities troubled by the terrorists, adding that there were intensive efforts to return normalcy to those affected communities.



    He commended Nigerians for their support and cooperation with the security forces, saying this was responsible for the successes so far recorded in the campaign to end insurgency.

    Omeri who is the director general of the National Orientation Agency, NOA, said that the Nigerian military had intensified efforts in the on-going fight in some parts of Adamawa, especially in Michika and Bazza among other areas, to flush out the terrorists.

    He added that security forces had been recording tremendous success in recent weeks.

    Omeri noted that the security awareness programme put in place by the federal government was responsible for nationwide hitch-free celebration of the 2014 Eid-el-Kabir.
