Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, Maj.-Gen. Rogers Nicholas has urged for synergy among security agencies in the North in order to bring a quick end to insurgency  in the region.

The Commander said this during  his meeting with heads of security agencies in Borno State.

According to a statement, the  meeting which is the Theatre commander’s maiden meeting with security stakeholders in Borno state was held  at the Military Command and control Centre in the Headquarters Theatre Command Operation Lafiya Dole.

He stated that it was necessary to meet to foster acquittance and close the gaps in the security architecture of the state and the north east generally.

While giving an overview of the operational activities of troops, the Theater Commander , noted that presently troops have overran Boko Haram  positions in Sambisa and have physically occupied Camp Zeiro, adding that several Boko Haram logistics including combat and non combat vehicles as well as weaponry have been destroyed in the ongoing Operations DEEP PUNCH 2.

He said there was need for synergy and information sharing at all fronts to successfully drive the operations.

He called on all not to hesitate to share information amongst themselves. The Theatre commander informed all of the closure of road Bama-Maiduguri and Gwoza-Damboa.

He said the closure became necessary to prevent fleeing Boko Haram insurgents from escaping from the ongoing onslaught by troops. He urged all to intensify effort in ensuring that fleeing insurgents are apprehended.

On the curfew in place in Borno state, the Theatre commander noted that it should be jointly enforced by all security agencies.

He urged all to ensure compliance on the part of some security operatives and personnel who have been using their position to encourage violation of curfew and beating security check points. He pointed out that such such unsavoury attitude will not be condoned.

The Theatre commander also addressed the need for the the relevant security agencies to complement the effort of troops of Operation Lafiya Dole by deploying operatives and personnel in some of those areas that have been liberated by the troops.

Discussing Boko Haram suicide bombing activities in the theatre, the Theatre commander urged all to be more proactive, vigilant and ensure regular patrols of the vulnerable areas such as Muna Garage and Molai areas.
