He also said that the Nigerian troops have carried out operations successfully against Boko Haram using intelligent information.
“As a result of the ongoing military training and a newly established intelligence sharing mechanism, Nigeria’s military has executed successful military operations from active intelligence on Boko Haram positions and will continue to make these positive gains against the group with new aerial equipment providing wide territorial coverage and increased response capability,” he said.
Omeri said that the government continue to work to ensure an end to the Boko Haram scourge and urged citizens to be of good behaviour and report any suspicious activity.
