Nigerians are eagerly waiting on the military authorities to reveal the names of the sponsors of the dreaded Boko Haram sect after the Army authority claimed that it knows those behind the insurgents.

The Theater Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole based in Maiduguri, Borno State, Maj.-Gen. Yushau Abubakar, while speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria correspondents, said the Army has a list of the sponsors of the sect and that it is doing everything possible to end the insurgency by the end of this year.

“Investigation on those that we suspect that are either participating or hiding, fueling or conniving with those that carried out those acts, is ongoing. They will be exposed in due course,” Abubakar assured.

He also pointed out that the recent spate of bombings were aimed at diverting the attention of the military from achieving its target in the ongoing anti-terrorism war.

“I want to assure all that for every second that passes, we get more committed to fighting the insurgents; we cannot be deterred.

We are doing as much as we could to ensure that we completely eradicate the insurgents as quickly as possible because we are aware of the time line within which to complete the task.

We searched the houses and certain items that we recovered at the vicinity gave us some clues.

The citizens need to know that security is their personal responsibility as individuals.

They must be able to secure themselves and doing so means they need to be security conscious.

Any suspicious movement within the environment should be reported to security agents immediately,” Abubakar advised.
